Banding in RAW files (K5 and DA*16-50) - what's going on?

FastStone also has a setting under the RAW tab in the Settings dialog (F12 on Windows, or Menu>Settings>Settings then RAW tab) where you can select whether FS will show the embedded JPEG or the actual RAW file.

K-1 and Adobe Camera RAW Color profiles
Posted By ghl

Quite a few versions back, both Rawtherapee and Photivo wouldn't read the embedded color profile in my K-01 raw files (dng) and would default to a not terrible, but not good, Adobe standard profile unrelated to the K-01.

What I did was to download Adobe's DNG Profile Editor 1.0.4, and have it open a K-01 DNG file. Without making any changes in the profile editor I would then save the profile as a .dcp file. Then I used this DCP to ICC camera profile converter to convert the .dcp profile from Adobe's editor into an ICC color profile which RawTherapee and Photivo were able to use.

Pulled this into some raw editing templates and it works quite well.

Hope this might help.

@LeRolls, I've got to second jake14mw's post. It's been a pleasure watching your work increase in quality over some time now. You obviously work hard at it, and it really shows. Of course, your subject matter in this thread is easy on the eyes to begin with, but your dedication to getting many elements right is impressive. Very nice work!

Nice dng to play with, alamo5000. Most of the K1 photos make me wish I could get one. Following is resized to 1200 on the long side, so a lot of wonderful detail in the original is now gone, but the DR was fun to play with.

While I agree with falconeye on many things, the famous line from Shakespeare's King Lear just doesn't work in metric:

"Ay, every inch a king."

Would this now be: Ay, every 2.54 cm a King, or, Ay, every 25.4 mm a King.

Just doesn't roll off the tongue the same way, or so I'm told.

But when it comes to measurement beyond literature, the metric system is superior.

I know this thread is a little old, but if you haven't had any success in finding someone to work on your Agfa you might give this guy a try.

The site is sort of 1.0ish, but it seems he works on quite a range of older cameras.

I'm about to embark down the road of digitizing decades of slides and negatives.

I have a F 100/2.8 and I'm just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction with regards to what product, or technique, to hold the film/slide assuming illumination from a flash.

Thanks in advance!!

Buy charger for K-30 in San Francisco

Samy's has the AA adapter in stock for the K-30. Or so their website claims:

All Products

They are located at:

1090 Bryant Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

Telephone: 415-621-8400

I would suspect they have the charger also. Give them a call.

The K-01 does not have TAV on the mode dial. TAV is only available through auto iso in M mode, and exposure comp. is not available in the K-01 TAV mode except through exposure bracketing.

I got tired of waiting for full-frame from Pentax, so last year I replaced all the original crop windows in my house with Full Frame Pella windows. Now, if I step back far enough, I can see my whole backyard without panning.

Pella rocks!

(I am in no way associated with Pella, I just like their full frame windows.)

Nice photo. I don't mind the monochromatic aspect myself, I think it works well.

You might want to think about flipping both the horizontal and vertical axes. Moving the greypoint slightly to the right helps a bit also.

"Looks like trash being pulled up in the wave"

I'm not refering to the small "stick" to the left of my top most arrow. I'm refering to the long vertical line that imposes itself even over the white of the breaking surf.

Does anyone know what the vertical line in the wave below the surfer could be caused by?

It is in the original pic posted. See below:

Here's a stab at it. Not in Lightroom though, it was done with a program called Sagelight. I need to get Lightroom.
