    Anybody try the K5?

    Ive had my k5 since October and I love it. I do not know much about the D7000, but this site has a comparison between the two: Nikon D7000 vs Pentax K-5 Perhaps another camera store has one in stock, so you can hold one before purchasing.

    Snowboarding in Fernie

    I have to agree with Mike, these look underexposed to me. I'd like to see the backgrounds a little brighter. Aside from that, I think #4 turned out the best. The subject looks sharp while the background is slightly blurred. Nice work. I love Fernie, great hill. What do you use to protect...

    Undo "sucked in” effect

    There is no way your going to be able to undo this effect. If the file is on a windows 7 machine, you can try right clicking on the file > properties > previous versions. Will any luck you may be able to access the unedited file.

    Sagemax extended warranty – good or bad?

    I looked into this when I bought my K5, there was a lot of mixed reviews and when I inquired with Mack they told me that the Warrenty started on the purchase date. I concluded it wasn't worth it as Pentax Canada already offers 2 year Warrenty. I actually think Nikon does as well. One thing I...

    Pentax K-5 review

    I don't know too much about the 60d but this site gives a side by side comparison : Canon 60D vs Pentax K-5 I've only owned my k5 for a couple of months and I've been really impressed so far. Great high iso performance, dynamic range, build quality and ergonomics are some of the things that...

    Do you carry your camera?

    Nah, I only take it with me when I think I might want to use it.

    Equipment, tools, gadgets and anything else.

    Keep shooting, eventually you'll figure out your style and what area of photography you enjoy the most. If you asked me 10 years ago, I would have said people but if you ask me today I'd say nature.

    which film camera do u have?

    I used a Pentax K1000 when I was learning film, it's a solid camera. The k1000 is a manual camera, no auto. If you go with a pentax, you can still use your lenses on a DSLR if you decide to go digital in the future. A film camera might be a cheaper set up, developing yourself is fairly...

    a horrible chapter in our endeavor to become illustrious world famous photographers

    I feel your pain, I remember going out with my k1000 thinking that I was rocking it only to find out that not a single shot turned out. Oh well, the joys of film. When I worked at Walmart, we could scan b&w to cd-rom. Sure that was 6-7 years ago, but I have a hard time believing that they...
