    Haha! Open eyes, FF Pentax! But most likely cannot buy, price far from K5Iis.

    I've tried an optical flash trigger with my Q.
    As suspected, the pttl pre-flash causes it to false trigger before shutter curtain moves.
    So unfortunately this option for an external flash is a no go.

    Of course I use a Q and not a MX-1, so this is not the definitive answer to the problem.

    Sorry to tell you that MX-1 doesn't support wireless flash w/ the built-in pop-up flash

    But I never use external flash for such a small camera anyway, so no big deal to me

    Really sorry for the late update. Too busy during weekends while abit too lazy over the weekend.

    Since the camera firmware isn't the final release one, I won't comment too much on the performance and IQ, but to me they are pretty good for such a small camera, definitely good enough for a family and travel camera.


    I took the camera w/ me on the first day of the year when we brought the kids out to the Botanic Garden. They love to feed the fish and swans there. The kids love to

    shoot flowers w/ their own cameras (each got a Fujifilm F31FD) too.

    All photos were taken in JPG, some postprocess done as usual.

    I'll start w/ few photos of my kids in action:

    As you can see the skin tune is a bit pinkieshy. Sometimes the whitebalance isn't very consistant too, probably due to beta version firmware.

    We usually go to see the white swans near the main entrance of Garden. But this time the kids decided to go and see the black ones:



    The weather was great during that day, even turles came out of water for some Sun:



    My daughter thought tried to feed the turtle, but seems it didn't like the fresh bread much:



    Here is a bit close up on this little creature:

    Other than fish, there were a lot ducks over there, and most of them swam around in pairs:





    Pretty hard to get one in solo:



    And of course there were the birds too:

    After the trip to the Botanic Garden, we brought the kids to their favorite restaurant: The Pizza Hut. This time we tried their new pizza (can't remember its name):



    It looked good, tasted fanstastic too:



    And of course the Kids' favorite: the Hawaiian Pizza:



    Can't leave w/o my son's favorite cheesy beefball:




    Well, the elder sis did all the poses, the younger brother wasn't very happy:

    Anyway, it's aways good to go out w/ the kids, no matter what we do. Just one more flower to show what my kids love to shoot at:

    Last weekend was my daughter's friend's birthday. The family invited us to the Bird Park for a celebration. Of course I'd tag along as usual (just love to mingle around w/ the

    kids and their parents). Most kids' parents brought either dSLR or mirrorless cameras, I was one of the few who carried a p&s. And of course the majority still prefer using

    their iPhone or Andriod Phones to take photos. As you can see, my little camera couln't grab much attention, so most of my shots were from side way:



    Wide end of the lens distorsion is pretty bad I have to say, probably not a good idea to use it for group photos like this. But the kids and their families don't really care,

    they just love to see themselves in the photos:
