    Google Photos AI

    I randomly took two photos of a deck we were cleaning. One was for the front part and the next was the back half. I didn't make any effort to align them or anything. A while later, I received a notification that my new 'stitched panorama' was ready for viewing. Huh? Well, when I looked at...

    Visiting the Maritimes

    On a packed week of travel through the eastern provinces of Canada. I know I needed a longer lens, so I picked up a vintage SMC-M 135 3.5 lens to use on the K-01. Here are some pictures taken in the Bay of Fundy - whale watching. K-01 with 135 (these are all jpegs SOOC; not much time for...

    Ricoh New GRii on vacation

    Hi folks. Recently bought the GR as I needed a small camera to take on our family vacation. My initial thoughts after using it exclusively for the trip: its a real non-obstructive camera. It really doesn't get in the way. I'm still learning to get the the best out of it. It pulls you into...

    Micro 4/3 Talk me out of the LX 100 ii (or D-Lux 7)

    Hi folks. I haven't commented much recently, but now need some feedback. I'm about to pull the trigger on the LX100ii, but I'm really hesitant as it's a good chunk of money and a reasonable investment for me. (Ok - I'm also looking at the D-Lux 7 for the longer warranty and yes, the *vanity*...

    Pentax K-01 lives - In Montreal

    [IMAGE-HEAVY THREAD!] This sub-forum has been dormant for a while now. Has everyone given up on their Stormtroopers/Pandas/bumble-bees? It has remained my main camera for the past few years - I've acquired an x-10 but haven't quite bonded with it :(, so I've pretty much learned to live with...

    Fuji New to X10

    I just traded in a bunch of stuff I had lying around for a brand new (to me) X10. I'm hoping this would be a good carry about camera to compliment the K-01. So what's the best way to use this new guy? Any set-up suggestions? Quirks to be aware of? I've read a lot about the EXR 6 mp inages...

    Pentax Sultans of Science Exhibition

    Preamble: This is just to share for reference - nothing artistic or impressive photo-wise! ... just a whole bunch of photos if anyone's interested. We recently went down to the Sultans of Science exhibition held at the Ontario Science centre. I had the Tamron 28-75 on the K-01. Almost all of...

    Pentax Ice looks better in the sun

    A few days ago the Toronto area was pelted with a freezing rain storm (lots of pictures around). Went for a walk this morning and everything is transformed from the miserable, dreary mess of a few days ago to winter beauty. Ice Storm 2013 by muzpix, on Flickr Ice Storm 2013 by...

    Pentax WIfe borrowed the K-01

    .. for a school trip the zoo. After I did the regular D/L to Aperture and some PP'ing, I find these two to be stand-outs. Bravo I say to her! ... although she doesn't really share my enthusiasm :)

    Pentax Light show

    Great light show last night. Tried catching a good one, but the super bright LED street lights made it near impossible. Best I managed: (Anyone willing to try their hand at processing the RAW? I have the DNG, just don't know where to load it to right now).

    Pentax Mammal Portraits

    The K-01 is pretty much my only camera now. Recently added the Tamron 28-75 2.8 zoom - awesome lens, but heavy, and not compact :) Here are a few portrait type shots at a local zoo with this combo. While I did shoot RAW+Jpeg, these are all processed from the Jpegs, as the camera out was...
