    Pentax Q-S1 Storm Drive

    Shooting one handed with the Pentax Q-S1 last year during a storm. I'm usually driving but was still recovering from rotator cuff surgery. 20170528-134954-Edit.jpg by Rick McNelly, on Flickr More pics below as I add them ...

    Pentax Pentax image thread..

    .....? Might be a bit lonely, but I thought I'd start one anyway. Maybe a few K-1ii users soon. ( : And a great spot for older favs too. K-70/35LTD pixel shift for a minuscule 132mb file. Need to work on hiding reflections. ( : HD40ltd by john matsu, on Flickr Loving my new system.

    Film Pentax Spotmatic & Arista 400

    Not bad - I should probably have been more careful with the metering. Actually a nice shooting camera with lovely lenses.

    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...

    Pentax my shiny new toy

    I really wanted a K-1 badly - but the budget would have to stretch a bit far for that. When I saw the silver Ricoh-anniversary edition K-3ii was available I went for that. I'll miss a few of those K-1 features, but having PxShift capablilty in the camera + motion correction for same on the...

    SIJ Day 31

    My first try at shooting from the hip with this camera. The lens and adapter are really too large and heavy to do this comfortably. At least it seems that way when you would normally use a Ricoh GRD4. This shot was one of a series where I had the camera tilted too far up - a case of...

    SIJ Day 30

    Despite 3 days respite today was a struggle for inspiration. I was planning a walk around here but a few dodgy guys walking nearby had me worried about being mugged so decided to head back home. Hopefully Tomorrow will be more productive. Possibility of snow too..

    SIJ Day 26 - what the hell?!

    Caught the bus into Kettering Town today to shoot some street. It is a bit more spread out than my home town giving me more opportunities and variety. Still no easier being discreet with this camera. It's a case of having to lurk around corners or pretend to be shooting some fauna or buildings...

    SIJ Day 25

    A short street session on my way home from work. There are few places in town you can walk around with a camera without getting noticed - this is not one of them!
  21. SIJ Day 24

    SIJ Day 24

    I was hoping to get some shots on the way home from work but it was wet and I was feeling too silly in my bulky waterproofs to shoot street. So I cycled home and took this shortly after awakening - saved me a journey outside where it is still raining.

  24. SIJ Day 21

    SIJ Day 21

    My intention in this spot was to hold the camera as steady as possible and keep dropping the shutter speed until I got a nice blur effect as people and vehicles moved by in the shot. I did get the effect I wanted when I dropped down to around 1/20s but the blurred figures tended to get swallowed...

    SIJ Day 20

    Wohoo! Day off work. Shame it won't stop raining. Took a stroll to the nearby nature reserve and had a go at shooting this huge old fir tree. Difficult to know how to photograph it, other than this way!

    Less energy tonight - couldn't be arsed moving from my chair! Apologies - must try harder..

    SIJ Day 18

    This shot taken from my bedroom window after finishing a dayshift. It's dark on the way to and from work when I'm on days at the moment so I'm struggling to shoot on these days. I'm also very inexperienced with shooting at night and my brief trial of the 5N's flash has put me right off it!

    SIJ Day 17

    Tried out the Sony's in camera effect called "miniature mini". It blurs/softens everything but a thin horizontal strip down the middle. It increases saturation also. I was sat on a wall taking shots of people across the road - a little far off really for this focal length but with...

    SIJ Day 16

    Last nightshift completed I took a leisurely cycle ride home and stopped by the boating lake on the way. Nice weather today. Early morning frost but the sun was shining bright and there was no breeze or clouds to be seen. Still cold though..

    SIJ Day 15 - Trolley Dashed

    Another shot taken on the way home from work. The light was a bit poor this morning but I guess that is why the colours are stronger. There must have been at least 5 shopping trolleys in this stream yet the nearest supermarket is quite a distance away.

    SIJ Day 14

    Shoved my camera in my work bag last night and took this shot on the way home. Could have done with more DOF I feel. The original colour was okay but I knew from looking at the image on the LCD that b&w was the way to go..
  32. SIJ Day 12

    SIJ Day 12

    Sat down and pre-focused on an area in my town centre. Stopped the lens down to about F8 and waited for some subjects to walk into the zones of acceptable focus either side of me. Shot looking down into the LCD which was set to b&w mode with focus peaking turned on. Worked out reasonably...

    SIJ Day 11

    Taken in nearby woods with the light just beginning to fade. Had about 10 shots and it was tough choosing between them, none particularly wowed me. Hopefully I'll get a longer shoot tomorrow.
  34. SIJ Day 10

    SIJ Day 10

    Another shot taken in haste. Used the flash and was finding getting the exposure right was pure trial and error - the camera metering was way out. Possibly a result of the main light was from a TV which was varying in brightness from second to second.I also guess that metering for flash would be...

    SIJ Day 9

    A self portrait handheld using the 5n's "hand held twilight mode". It takes multiple shots and trys to make a sharp photo from them. Kinda works and would come in handy in an emergency if you forgot the flash. Also put through SEP2. Only had the camera on for about 10 mins today -...

    SIJ Day 5

    This was taken just a few hundred yards from my back garden. I was in a mad rush to get some pics taken and ended up in the middle of a field scanning the area for potential pics. Gotta say it was not easy but I had no time to move elsewhere. Need to get back to bed before my next 12 hr...

    Three nice cameras!

    The main problem with the K-5 (right) is size (although much smaller than many other DSLRs). The Olympus XZ-1 is excellent in bad lighting, but has a short zoom. The Sony HX9V is one of the best video cameras around, and has a decent zoom as well, but it doesn't like dusk at all! The...

    NEx-5N plus 400mm Pentax-M lens plus 2.0X converter

    I haven't been very impressed by this lens when used with my Pentax cameras, but with the 5N attached I suddenly had pretty nice package! Using the converter is a bit of overkill as the details doesn't get any better, or sharper, but as an improvised apotting scope it works great!
