One of the last extravanganzas from last christmass arrived yesterday. Today the weather was "good" enough to try it out in a park.

The shots of the woodpecker where against the light and needed some extra pp, but at these sizes they look just perfect.

For the low cost this lens looks great.

Enjoy - Ronny

Ronny,

Great shots with your Tamron 70-300mm. I have the same lens, along with a Pentax 18-55mm. Are you using a K10D?

I just received my K10D and have been shooting for 2 days, but haven't gotten the results you have here or near what I've seen others getting. I'm a newbie coming off a point and shoot, and still trying to figure out the settings on this K10D. I know it's going to take lots of practice, but I can sure use some tips on the settings of this great camera. I've been shooting in Auto, ( jpeg ), but most shots seem to be a bit dull. Anyone out there have any suggestions or settings I can try?

Thanks,
Jay D :?:

Thanks Jay,

Yep, I'm using the K10D, and I'm just a bit less a newbie. I just switched over from a pana fz5 to the K10D a month ago.

If you find the shots a bit dull, you might change the settings to bright. The idea seems to be that when you're shooting in natural you are going to do some post processing to brighten/sharpen/? to enhance the picture. In bright the camera should already do a big part of that.

Up till now i've been shooting mostly in P and Sv just to have some settings and get a feel of the camera. I'm still learning to think and look at the settings before shooting. :roll:

I also tried the Raw settings, and although you can get more out of your shots, and repair some mistakes I haven't found a workflow that I'm happy with. So I'm mostly shooti in JPG and when not sure I'm using Raw+Jpeg

And one thing, don't worry, a dslr is in some aspects the same as a point and shoot, if you don't like the shot can always delete it.

Great shots! Again proving you don't need the $1000 lenses to have fun and take great pictures!
