looked in the specs and it depends on the declination and focal length but the chart they give indicates 5 minutes at 200mm but i'm not sure if thats a maximum tracking time or what? with their noise preformance is that enough for some of the deep space objects ? but again the specs only mention 200...

Re: Read this and weep - Pentax GPS + more

it's an interesting feature but I wonder if it really works. how long an exposure can it take? most objects are out of the frame completey in a short time and would this really work on a telescope or only on a long pentax zoom?

Re: on Minolta 7000

Thanks Tom, I eventually figured it out.... reading the dial was a good start :) I must say that sure is a fun camera to shoot. I have about a dozen rolls now and will take them for processing later. can't wait to see what I got. The Max 5 was fun to shoot to but control wise it doesn't hold a candl...

on Minolta 7000

Is this camera supposed to work with the 500mm Reflex lens? or does it need to be a I camera and above? Been shooting film this week and my X700 blew a shutter cap so I broke out this 7000 that came with a lens I wanted and have been shooting all week to use up the film I have. I tried to shoot a To...

Re: A850 Exposure Compensation and Ambient Light

One setting adjusts the automatic camera settings (like P,A,S modes) to allow more or less ambient light in the picture and leaves the flash output the same. so the camera will adjust whatever it can from Shutter aperture or ISO to make it happen.

Re: Samyang 85mm f1.4 on A900 after software upgrade.

Go through your menu items for camera set up. you're looking for a new setting added by the firmware called "release W/O lens". set it to yes and all should work. And also A mode will work as well

Re: David Kilpatrick in action courtesy NEX5 & 18-55 E lens

This room was probably lit with a yellow source and a white projector so anthing you do to make it look whiter is making it look un natural. The mixed lighting is going to cause you all sorts of trouble too it would have been better to flash away all the ambient but the photographer didn't have that...
