The trick is to set the green button action in M mode to Tv-shift. Then the bracket will be done with shutter only and not to program line.

I have my K-3 in hand and while it may be a little taller, I am not thinking that much. One basically needs a straight-on front view to compare using the mount as a guide.

What should be immediately obvious is that the new camera is not a designed as a compact in the same mold as the KP.

Label is something like "SFn".

As you noted, the movie icon on the dial next to the LV icon. If the usual conventions hold for Pentax, record start/stop is done with the shutter button.

Pushing the creative limits with the Dine 105/2.8 Macro and was having a tough time managing focus and the breeze under bright conditions a few days ago while shooting dahlias. I lucked out on this one...

Moving on to wilder speculation, there is the matter of a name. I suggest something with the allure of Pentax's glorious near past. How about...

K-*ister


...pronounced kay-spat'-istur' * or (alternatively) kay-star-ees'-tar. Hey! No laughter! I am serious.


Steve

* Following the convention in IT and programming circles of pronouncing the character "*" as "splat".

I heard rumor they had decided on radio controlled go-karts chased by drones and hungry starlings. The intended subjects being the starlings, of course.

(I can say this with some certainty since I am less than 200 miles south of their offices and knowing sound travels exceptionally well through our glacial till, I heard the meeting in progress...ear-to-the-ground, so to speak.)

...and would be preceded by at least a week of cryptic posts by Chinese and Siberian bloggers and random sightings of mystery cameras with taped-over labels in numerous major Asian cities and maybe even Paris.

Yep! There are also active fumaroles not far off one of the main runs at Mt. Hood Meadows ski area. Sometimes skiing by, I would catch a whiff and remember those who died a few years back at Mammoth Mountain in a fumarole incident.

Thanks for the suggestions. The roll-over edge seams are badly worn/frayed in places. This is normal wear, but a little worse on this case than most. Leather dye might help the appearance though.

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

You use either a mechanical cable release or the remote trigger device after locking the mirror up.

I guess that explains why the f/4 lens is on the roadmap and has a name ("HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mmF4") and was previously slated for 2019 release, now "2019 or later". The market exists for a Pentax lens the same as for the Canon and Nikon products. I, for one, am quite interested, and price break is not the major consideration.

^ ^ ^ Good advice and an excellent general practice ^ ^ ^



...and on some cameras, jamming the shutter cycle and making the camera inoperable. :eek:

OK, so an extension to live view. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Could somebody please explain to me the frequent mention of hybrid viewfinder? Hybrid optical/EVF is the signature feature of Fuji X-series, but is impossible, of course, with reflex viewing (the "R" in SLR). Is the suggestion an extension of live view?

Note: I am aware of the 2017 patent for coarse image projection onto the optical image.
