K-30 Bracketing -vs- Multiple Exposure
Posted By Rite
Replies: 12
Views: 7,227
The K-30 brackets up to three shots, -vs- five on the K5.

It will multi-expose up to nine shots.

My question is how similar, if fixing the K-30 to a tripod before shooting, is multi-exposure to bracketing, and would it have the same effect with being able to shoot up to nine shots in multi, vs only three in bracketing?

The consideration here is of course for post processing purposes in CS6 and LightRoom.

Thanks,

Rite

From page 126 of the K-30 Manual:

This setting invokes a feeling of being 'calm and peaceful.' I can almost hear the rippling of the waterfall coming down the rock cliff into the water, as I contemplate diving into the pristine water and prepare to meditate on the peacefulness of a tranquil moment.

Very inviting and 'serene.' :)

What took you so long Ricoh?

With over 22,000 hits on this one item waiting this long to address it is somewhat laughable, don't you think?

I waited six years for the K-3. On paper, it IS the perfect DSLR. These K-3 problems have been addressed not just here, but by now all over the world.

Waiting to address the issues in this thread on Ricoh's part leaves one to conclude several things.

Namely, the problems cannot be rectified via firmware updates. And, even more critical, Ricoh may simply be unable to repair them without a recall or buyback program as Nikon was forced to do with the D600.

Your experience of rippling malfunctions (first the shutter motor, then the artifacts, then the loose rubber (seal) is exactly why the K-3 sample that came to me was sent back. It malfunctioned right out of the box, within five minutes producing two instances of uncontrollable shutter. After the 1.03 firmware update, the focus seemed to be losing clarity with fixed primes. With confirmed similar malfunctions found on this forum, there was no other choice but to return it to Ricoh.

If this happens to offend someone, the facts outweigh the sentiments of Pentax brand loyalty, which I have never experienced product failures like this in almost four decades of using that brand.

Best Regards,

Buy K3 or K5 II's?

The reason I prolonged the K-3 purchase was I originally intended to go with the Silver Edition (with grip). One would think that the only difference between the Silver and Black Editions would be just the exterior finishes. The early Silver Editions had battery grip issues from the onset, so I waited a few months to go with the Black Edition. Apparently I didn't wait long enough. Right out of the box, and within the first five minutes, the uncontrollable shutter defect occurred TWICE.

Not sure if it was the 'luck of the draw,' and not willing to find out, the sample that came to me was returned. It was not an easy decision, since it was a large purchase with three new lenses and had been waiting for the K-3 for several years. The purchase total of over $2,400 was all returned.

Given the rate of issues with the K-3 lately, that is a good decision;)

K-30 Focus Selection Point Question

Thanks, and it does help. I want to pair the K-30 with the Sigma 70mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens for Pentax for nature macro and portraits. It would be nice to have that feature visible on the lcd screen as well, since the screen will zoom in further while focusing the subject like the K-x does.

The ability to manual override the focus point on the screen would be the cream on the top.
