Big Will can normally sniff out an opportunity like this with his eyes closed........he must be slipping..........
I don't think BigWill has been the same since that most recent 'BigWill's on the swalley' session - must have been one heck of a hangover!
"the shop assistant wasn't happy - until he saw how clean my rear was"............................ NO SH*T! (literally?)
P.S. It wasn't the hangover Huw it's just that I don't venture into the Pentax forum very often...................I mean it's full of people who own Pentaxes! and Canadians with hairy arms!
However long does it take some people?
Just be carefulwith the blower. I used it inside my DL2, and now have dust ABOVE the focussing screen. As the screen isn't removable then I have no way of removing it, except to hope that it works it's own way out!
Jay-zoos, I never normally venture into this, uh, nook...but I just had to look at Nick's rear end...
Let's not have any aperture jokes now! ;-)
Nice to know I am in such good company. Thanks.
I was only joking about the E-510. I have spent enough on dslr bodies already and the K10D is a real winner in my book.
You're more than welcome...
..................no, let's not, because "on the whole"
this thread has been very dignified......................well up until now that is!
Now sing along with me:
"There is a cavern in the town, in the town,..............
See Sony Chat ...
Next Question please:
The 'dust bunny' appears on the rear screen (and the photos of course) in the bottom right hand corner.
Where on the sensor will it be? That may seem a silly question, but what I'm getting at is this; is the image from the lens inverted on the sensor? If so do I look for the dust on the top left as seen through the lens opening?
Yep............though you are likely to need a pretty good magnifying glass. By the time you see it at actual pixels on screen it's been enlarged just a bit.........
No - top right. From the back of the camera, it would be in the top left, but when you turn it around that corner becomes the top right. But unless it's a huge peice of dust you're unlikely to be able to see it with the naked eye.
Just to be clear, are you saying that the image is both inverted and flipped? So bottom right on the final image becomes top left on the front of the sensor?
If you were looking at the image in a view camera - so basically looking at the film plane through the ground-glass - the image is simply rotated through 180°, so what appears in the bottom right of the corrected image (i.e. as it is shown on the LCD) was actually formed in the top left of the image plane - as seen from the back of the camera. But from the front of the camera that corner is seen as the top right.
Thanks, all clear now.
The focussing screen on the DL2 is not only removeable, but also changeable.
I used mine for a while with a split-screen, like the old K1000 - line up the 2 halves of the image, then it is in focus.
