And you'll be dropping less coin depending on which color you want. The all-black model is getting pretty close to $200 typically with free shipping.

TS4 or WG-2?
Posted By Internetpilot

Chiming in late here, but I just got the WG-2 and love it. I think my KX kit will be staying at home a lot more. I've always been a big fan of Panasonic's P&S superzoom cameras since way back with the FZ1 all the way through the FZ50, but I haven't been very impressed with anything they've been putting out lately, including their ruggedized line of cameras. I don't like the typical ruggedized camera shape, which has a lot to do with why the WG series camera appeals to me so much.

Regarding image quality cited in reviews, with P&S cameras you really have to take that with a grain of salt. Any P&S camera I've ever owned gets the typical mediocre reviews for image quality, but I've always found with every single P&S camera that once you dial in your preferences in the settings, you can eek out pics pretty close to (if not exactly) what you want. I was not impressed with the WG-2's out of the box image quality, so I bumped up the quality to the highest, turned on the IQ boost feature, and bumped up the sharpness and contrast, limited the auto ISO range to something more reasonable for the sensor, and now I'm getting great shots. To be fair in the reviews, I think the reviewers have to use the cameras at default settings, but that only shows what the camera will do with the default settings right out of the box.

I realize I'm probably preaching to choir about that, but I thought I'd mention it since some of the responses above mentioned reviews and image quality ratings.

I just bought one and have been messing with it for a week. I really like this camera. Awesome camera for a rugged P&S. Usually you have to sacrifice a lot more photography features and quality for the ruggedness.

Yes, it has both shadow/highlight correction, but in testing them I couldn't see where they did all that well. Since I was trying it with both of them set to "on" it may have been cancelling each other out, so to speak??? Not really sure. I find that when I have the quality setting at the highest, IQ boost turned on, sharpness and contrast bumped up, and the mode set to "P", it takes pictures and video better than any other P&S I've owned. My old Pentax wireless remote operates it, too. I think they now sell a waterproof version of that remote for the WG series for not too much $. The now typical P&S features of face, smile, and blink detection are very new to me, but I'm finding them very useful. I took a self-portrait group shot the other day, and rather than use the remote or timer-run technique, I just told everyone not to smile until we all were ready. 1-2-3 "smile" and the camera saw the smiles and took the pic. This might not be such a "WOW" thing for some of you, but it definitely was for me.

It offers 1080p/30fps video, which is very nice, but it also has a 720p/60fps video mode, which would be pretty cool stuff on a bike. It also has a configurable time lapse setting that then converts your stills into a video, and it even has a lo-res 60fps video function that designed for smooth slow-motion playback, which you also might find useful on your bike.

The LEDs around the lens could be used as a marker/visibility light, but it doesn't project far enough to use a true headlight.

I bought mostly to serve as my fishing camera, but after using it for a week I'm thinking I'll use it for more than that. I'll probably be leaving the K-X kit at home (or at least back at whatever home-base I'm operating out of on vacation, etc.), and just take this little beastie with me instead. It would be nice to go light for a change.

I'll separate from the pack (haha) -- I'd go for the Kx if it's still available new. The Kx 2-lens kit is what I bought, I'm an avid amateur photographer, and I haven't regretted it. That 55-300mm lens is NICE, and probably the lens that spends the most time on my camera. In the future, I might upgrade to a Kr body, but I'm really in no hurry as the Kx is still doing fine for me.

Good luck with your decision!

How do you shop for a backdrop
Posted By Internetpilot

I've purchased three different muslin backdrops on Ebay, and I've been very satisfied with them. I have white, black, and a medium blue "tie-dyed", which was great for the pseudo "school pictures" that I shoot of my kids since the photography shop the school uses doesn't seem willing to sell pictures in packages less than $100(+)/per kid.

When I was doing my shopping, these were middle priced of all the ones available, and specifically advertised in the descriptions that they were thicker fabric, denser weave, etc. I can look up the name of the Ebay store if you're interested. All three of mine are 10'x20'.

I store them by folding them in about 2' wide "strips" width-wise, and then loosely roll up the final 2'x10' wide strip (like a sleeping bag). That leaves horizontal creases in them, but those have a better chance of falling out by just hanging them and gravity also helps if you have to do a quick steam on them. For steaming them at the scene, I just use a $19 Rowenta mini travel iron (that I already owned) that has a vertical steaming feature on it. You don't need a pro steamer with a 5-gallon reservoir just to smooth out a few creases.

I've mostly used the backdrops at school or church events (dances, formals, parties, fundraisers, etc.). When I was forced to put my backdrop in front of a window at a church (with a bright street light -- not the sun, thankfully), I just hung the black one behind the white one, and had no problems.

I'm very much an amateur/hobbyist, so I'm sure there are people here far more knowledgeable than me, but in my opinion you can definitely do well with relatively inexpensive backdrops, and muslin is definitely workable. Like you, I stayed away from paper because I didn't really have a safe place to store it, and once it's messed up it's messed up.

Good luck!

Apple just works because their OS significantly limits what the user can do. Where the pure marketing comes in is making people think that despite how much Apple limits its users, it's still the best product. Dumb everything down and then tell everyone they're smart if they buy it. That is pure marketing genius.

Haha...you're probably right about my "anti-passion", but I do typically cite real world reasons that aren't emotion based.

It's difficult to deny that most of Apple's success is due to an excellent marketing strategy. Graduate programs at Universities around the world will be studying it for decades to come. And this was my original point before someone started alleging that Apple had superior hardware.

The same thing can happen with any camera. Does no one think signing Ashton Kutcher to the recent Nikon marketing campaign sold more cameras? Pentax makes very good cameras, which actually attract new customers (like me) despite non-existent marketing. The Q would sell if properly marketed. And I'm not just picking on Pentax -- Olympus and Panasonic are examples of the exact same thing.

The "old days"? I can guarantee you I have newer equipment than 99.9% of this forum -- there's nothing "old days" about me other than I remember and currently know Apple for everything they were and still are (or should that be weren't and aren't?). I don't know why you would assume that because I don't care for Apple products (for legitimate, specified reasons) that I don't have modern equipment or that I'm living in the "old days".

I just replaced the motherboard in my wife's 2-year-old Dell notebook a couple of months ago, under warranty from Dell. I called them up, told them the part I needed, they sent it out, I returned the dead one to them (all postage paid and completely free). Did the same thing with two Dell notebooks 5 years ago, and replaced a screen, keyboard, and power supply (again completely under warranty) in a Compaq notebook about 7 years ago. Apple would never allow their customers to do that, which is why their warranty periods are shorter (they have to pay their techs and keep their overpriced repair centers open). Admittedly, that's perfectly fine for most consumers, and I completely understand that. However, I have the knowledge and experience to be able to service/repair my own equipment, which is why I don't want my family members to have Apple products because I don't feel like paying the extra money to have someone else repair them.

I'm not talking about Cisco Linksys co-branded routers -- those are consumer grade. I'm also talking about an original 64GB iPad (not the iPad2 that they had to release to correct these type of problems). None of my other modern equipment has any trouble connecting to the Cisco routers/AP's: 7 PCs, Nintendo Wii, Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft XBox 360, 4 Nintendo DS/DSi devices, 3 DirecTV DVRs, Acer A500 Android tablet, HTC Evo 4G phone, Blackberry phone, and three different printers. I guess I just got "lucky" with all that equipment, but "unlucky" only on the three different Apple devices I've tried???

My network equipment is industry standard. The problem I'm encountering is that Apple products are not industry standard, never have been, and likely never will be. Lately (especially with the i-devices) that's because Apple is so popular that they can attempt to create their own standard, but sometimes it's just bad design where they're simply not working to any established standard, which I think is frequently a bad decision for their customers.

Discussing computer equipment on a DIGITAL photography forum is never off-topic.



It's not flaming -- it's opinion based on fact and experience. The only people who would complain about my anti-Apple opinions are Apple zealots. I don't mind if you disagree with or even contradict my opinions -- plenty of people do. Apple devices are VERY popular. However, to accuse me of flaming and attempting to discredit my opinions and even my extensive experience just makes your statements above look hypocritical and smacks of Apple zealotism.

Again, discussing computer hardware and software preferences is perfectly normal on a DIGITAL photography forum. The only time there are problems is when people resort to zealot enthusiasm instead simply stating facts, calm opinions, or experience.

Besides, it's not like the original thread topic (the Pentax Q) is going anywhere constructive anyway.

Again, the accusation of being outdated (see my response above). A child could change out a hard drive in any computer -- desktop or notebook. In most modern systems that task is accomplished without touching a single tool. Let me know when Apple allows you (as in doing it yourself) to replace a motherboard under warranty and then I'll agree that Apple devices are an option for someone like me, and therefore my children.

Folks, it's just a namebrand, and my opinions are just opinions. Unless your last name is Jobs or Gates, you really shouldn't feel so passionately and emotionally about your choice in computers.


Well, I guess we can all go back to bashing the whole idea of the Q now? Or have we all moved on to the doom and gloom of Ricoh buying out Pentax?

20-year career network engineer here -- I've known about and had the misfortune of dealing with Apple since its infancy. It's the same old limiting and under-featured hardware/OS with the only recent change being a vastly superior marketing strategy.

My older two children insisted on iPhones and iPads depite my attempts to convince them otherwise. I did draw a firm line when they wanted a MacBook for their college notebook solution. Why? Because when they break, they're broken -- you have to send them in to Apple for repair. They're still far from the industry standard so a lot of required apps and even some websites will not run on them. How "smart" is anyone to buy a smartphone that only lets you put on it specifically what Apple says you can put on it? Doesn't seem very "smart" to me. Same scenario with an iPad.

When my son got his iPad last Christmas I was having career flashbacks of failed attempts to network AppleTalk. Being a network engineer, I have pro level Cisco routers and wireless access points in my house (yes, I have stock in the company -- haha). The overpriced iPad will not connect to them unless I remove all security/encryption. Called up Apple Tech Support, told them what network infrastructure I have as well as my level of expertise in this area, and guess what I was told? "Oh, yeah...you need an Apple Airport..."

I guess Cisco hardware is good enough to run most of the internet, but not good enough for Apple devices...?

So, as you can see, I know and appreciate high quality hardware (Cisco). Apple just doesn't fit that description in my significant experience.

Again, I am one of those "suckers" Junyo mentioned who is interested in the Q, but unlike the i-People who line up overnight at the local Apple Store to pay the overblown full MSRP for the latest i-Device, I won't be paying MSRP for the Q.

I can't remember the last time I paid MSRP for anything, and I don't think that Pentax really expects most people to to do so. I predict the Q will settle down to a nice street price a little higher than the higher end point-n-shoots, which is exactly where it should be.

I don't know...you've described the Apple marketing/design strategy perfectly, and their crappy devices sell like there's no tomorrow and for twice the price of the competition, which actually offers more and better features in their respective devices.

I think small and cute with a recognizable "major" brand name in Pentax could take the Q a long way in the current electronics market.

Like I've said, I'm a long-time Panasonic fan, but the whole m4/3 endeavor holds zero interest for me because the lenses are still too big to offer me much advantage over my previous Panasonic FZ50 or even my current Pentax KX.

I've previously posted in another thread how much I didn't care for the lack of quality I'm getting out of the 18-55 kit lens, to the point that I bought a Sigma 18-50 f2.8 to use instead. Guess what I've found myself leaving the house with more often than not? My KX with only the short kit lens (and a small pack of crow for a snack). The kit lens is so lightweight and has no lens shadow when using the onboard flash, so I can leave my external flash (and extra batteries for it) at home. Even bringing along my 55-300 lens, that's a rather lightweight kit (for me), but I still would love to have something significantly smaller.

I love the improved quality and features of a DSLR, but hate the kit bulk. Love the low light, hate the shutter noise. Love the size of a DSLR in my large hands, hate the size and weight in a bag on my shoulders where it resides most of the time.

That's what appeals to me about the Q, and I'm sure I'm not alone...well, maybe on this forum, but not in the real world.

My entire Auto 110 4-lens kit (including flash and autowinder) fit in a custom Pentax case that was about the same size as my first Sony Walkman cassette player, which was about the same size as the typical 35mm camera body at the time. That translates to small size/weight convenience for a "serious photographer". A single one of my existing Pentax glass wouldn't fit in that bag. Why would anyone want to use bulky existing glass on a new ultra compact body? That defeats one of the main benefits of this new system -- size.

I used my Auto 110 kit at least weekly, with periods of daily, for the 3 years I lived in Japan. I have thousands of negatives, and dozens of print albums to show for it with gorgeous pictures/captured memories of Japan -- photos my friends with their full size SLR didn't get because what 18-year-old wants to go through their young life with a bulky SLR bag/kit weighing them down? I'm an "old man" approaching 50 years now, but I find myself thinking a similar thing: What old man wants to go through old age trying to keep up with grandchildren and a busy modern life in general with a heavy DSLR kit bending my back more than my 50 years are naturally doing?

I'm a long-time Panasonic fan (still own an original release month FZ1 and actually gave up DSLRs for a few years for a FZ50), so I understand why you pinch the wife's Lumix at need, but the Q will be a better camera than any Lumix since it will hold a place somewhere between the "bridge" camera and DSLR worlds.

I am a serious photographer, and I'm interested in the Q. I want DSLR features in the smallest and lightest possible package. I suspect that once again I will be getting great pictures and memories while my friends are defaulting to mediocre pics by way of their phone cameras because their DSLR systems were too bulky and inconvenient to bring.

All true...when that opinion is justified. The Q hasn't even been released yet! Why not give it a chance, and then if it actually falls short, you'd be justified in your opinions. As of now it's just bashing by people who think their opinion of the relatively unknown future really matters.

Falling in line with most others here, let me jump ahead of the schedule:

Whatever comes after the K-R is stupid and the worst DSLR ever made (mostly because it's not full frame), Pentax is run by morons, Hoya is evil, and true pros only use Canon and Nikon. We should just shut the forums down now.

Oh, and don't look up because the sky is falling (all because of that @#$% Pentax Q...!).

I never said that SLR snobbery killed the Auto 110 -- it most definitely was the advancements in 35mm film handling in the P&S cameras (automatic loading, advance, rewind, etc.). That killed the 110 and 126 film cartridge for convenience, and subsequently most camera models using cartridge film quickly fizzled.

My comment about SLR snobbery was just that -- people mocking or scoffing at my Auto 110 system when the funny part was that I was getting the same shots they were -- better shots in some situations because the only zoom or wideangle they could afford was their feet.

A lot of the same is happening with the Q. The camera isn't even released yet, and it's already being mocked by people who mention wanting full frame in the same message...?

I can guarantee you one way the Q will be a failure -- if all the Pentax owners on the various forums keep bashing it. Most people do not come to these forums except for research when shopping for a camera. What do you think people researching the Q are going to find? Thread after thread bashing it as a toy. Who do you think is going to buy it with all this ridiculous negative feedback from Pentax owners? What a great way to stand behind your brand of choice, people!

Love using PicSay Pro on my Acer Iconia A500 Android tablet, and used it on my HTC Evo 4G Android phone before that. I highly recommend it. No, it's not PhotoShop, but it does a good job with basic tweaking on the go, and also makes my HTC Evo (phone) camera almost a real substitute as a point-n-shoot.

The Acer A500 is currently the only Android tablet with a full sized USB port for USB hosting. I'm able to connect my Pentax KX to it, download pics, edit them fairly well in PicSay Pro and upload them to a website, Facebook, printing service, etc. I'm also able to connect a myriad of storage devices to it, making the memory expansion options virtually unlimited. This is the main reason I didn't go for an iPad (or even another Android tablet).

My Android phone, tablet, PicSay Pro, and Pentax KX is a great mobile photography combination.

This is what I was thinking as well. As a former Auto 110 owner, it has nostalgia appeal to me that was far from satisfied with the Optio i10.

I remember back in the day my friends with 35mm SLRs snubbed their noses at my mini SLR's 110 film cartridge, but I still enjoyed the Auto 110 a lot. People who saw no purpose in the Auto 110, won't "get" the appeal of the Q system either.

I don't think it looks ugly at all, and the pop-up flash is a feature more cameras that size should have. I do think it's overpriced, but I never pay anything close to MSRP for any of my cameras.

I'm interested in this camera.

Most DSLR owners these days are hobbyists with little to no (justifiable) lens budget. This is especially true for a rather economical kit like the Pentax KX. In my sector of photography (hobbyist), for every one person who owns more than just the one or two kit lenses that came with their camera, I know 20 people who are just using the kit lens(es) that came with their cameras, and the majority (if not all) of those 20 typically leave one lens on the camera as if it was glued in place. I would venture a guess that if all entry level DSLRs were sold with an 18-250mm kit lens option, that no 2-lens kits would ever sell again and very few people would buy any lenses above and beyond the "superzoom" kit lens.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I didn't ever say, "Hey, I'm going to buy a DSLR so I can change the lenses all the time." I would like nothing better than if I could get an 18-250mm with f/2.8 throughout the range. I'd solder the lens on the camera body and forget that it could ever be removed. Unfortunately, that's not available to me, so to get the range that I require I need two lenses. But I don't "need" any more than those two lenses for my photography requirements, and currently the 18-50mm f/2.8 is rarely off the camera body.

Most people these days go for DSLRs because of the significant IQ improvement (even with "just" kit lenses) -- not because they're eager to start an expensive and/or cumbersome lens collection.

I haven't had any problems using Class 4 cards in the KX, including frequently shooting video. That being said, I almost always shoot JPEG rather than RAW, but it's not like your going to get a high FPS shooting RAW with the KX no matter what class of card you put in it. At least not a deal-breaker difference. Lately the price difference between Class 4 and 6 or even 10 (especially in 4 and 8gb capacities) has been negligible to the point that it almost makes the decision for you.

To any of you who immediately go with the "provide samples of bad photos" (who saves bad digital photos?) or "improve your skill and you'll be able to use any lens" (if that were true we could all use homemade pinhole cameras and get superior shots), you are no better than someone who just posts, "the kit lens sucks."

Many of us, most of which have decent or better photography skills, have clearly stated why we aren't bonkers for the short kit lens. It's all opinion. There's no reason to attack or criticize someone's skills over a sub-$100 lens quality. And frankly, it just makes you look like a zealot who will defend anything and everything Pentax.

Oh, and happy new year to those who celebrate it at this time of year! May all your lenses (even the crummy kit ones - haha) be everything you want them to be in 2011!

You don't have to invest much money in a replacement lens (3rd party) to get huge improvement over the 18-55 kit lens. For me, it was $300 for a Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX. I actually got a significant improvement (although not the same focal range) from $125 Sigma 28-105mm f/3.8-5.6 UC III IF. And, for me, it's not a matter of DSLR inexperience or lack of skill. I'm getting great shots with the two Sigma lenses as well as the 55-300mm "kit" lens.

I think we all just need to face the idea that there is likely significant sample variance with the 18-55mm kit lens, which really shouldn't be all that shocking and shouldn't be taken as a general criticism of Pentax lenses in general. The surprise with kit lenses should be if you get a good one -- not if you got a bad or mediocre one.

Again, this shouldn't be interpreted as a knock against Pentax. Kit lenses just are what they are. All this being said, you won't see my 18-55mm in the Marketplace or eBay -- I'm keeping it and still use it (especially for vacation happy-snaps) from time to time.

Tony3D: I had the exact same reaction to my short kit zoom that you did, and replaced it with a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 and haven't looked back. I like how small and light the kit zoom is by comparison, but I had to work a lot more to get anything close to what I get out of the 18-50mm by just pointing and shooting.

Tripod for the K-X

I actually found a fairly cheap carbon fiber one that defies the usually applicable advice of "you get what you pay for". The ToCad/Sunpak 624p tripod is actually a very nice tripod and I found it a few months back for $120 with free shipping. Comes with a short and long center piece, bag, very stable, easily adjustable, just about the right size/weight. About the only caveat is the typical pan/tilt head on it, which some people like but I don't particular care for. It wasn't too much of a problem for me as I already had a grip ball head from a previous tripod, but I would prefer that this Sunpak tripod come with this Sunpak 620 pistol grip ball head:


Amazon.com: Sunpak 620-PISTOLGRPQR Pistol Grip Ballsocket Head with Quick-Release Plate: Camera & Photo

At only US$40 though, it wouldn't be too bad to pick up, but it would put the combination way over your budget.

I suspect this will be a <$100 tripod very soon, so you may want to keep an eye out for it, as I think that would probably be the best and most stable tripod for your budget.

I like the idea of DSLRs coming in more colors than silver and black, and I really like the KX Stormtrooper Edition, but don't regret buying my black KX. Of course, one of the main reason I went black was because I couldn't find the two-len kit with the 55-300mm lens with a white body, so....

Does it count that if I bought the Pentax Optio i10 for nostalgia purposes (I'm a former owner of a complete Pentax Auto 110 system purchased 25 years ago in Japan) I would probably go with white? ;)
