    Inspired by the Myojo diffuser I'd made an even simpler one using a piece of foam with a cross cut in the middle. The foam slide from behind the lens before being mount. Setup Sugar

    K20D, Tamron 17-50mm, Panning

    I'd always wanted to try panning, but never did one before (like know how to do it but never did it). Was looking for stray cats today end up playing with panning. Not as hard as I'd imagined, managed to get abt 1 success in 3-5 shots. So here are my 1st panning shots.

    I'd yet done an official D&D or AD Wedding, so I thought I understand why most complained abt AF in low light. But when I re-think over again these few days, most events u'll have a flash mounted. And most (if not all) P-TTL I know has SB (spot-beam) on them, which help in lowlight AF. I'd done...

It gives u great colors but may cause color clipping. Here are 2 shots I took of the same flower with the bright and natural mode. Both are...

    K20D, Reverse 28mm & Insects

    After testing the K20D yesterday, I find the Sigma 28mm may not have enough resolution to support K20D. So I try again, at 1st I'd use sharpen +2, seems like it's kinda soft even at f22:what: After feeling dishearted, I relook at sharpen setting again. It was on fine sharpen. Then I switch it to...

    The cheapo reverse k mount > 52mm adapter came yesterday, so bring the K10D out to test it with old Sigma 28mm f2.8 Mini Wide II. Since I'd haven't done floral macros in abt 1 yr, so I made this the theme for the test. Think I'm pretty rusty liao^^;

    Overcome 1/180s limit

    Since more and more Pentax bro/sis getting interested with strobist action, I guess I'll give the most basic way to overcome 1/180s limit. The technique is flash frozen, nothing new. It's been around for a long long time. You basicly use the lowest ISO, narrow aperture (like f13-f22) and...
