After using the K-01 for more than a month, I kind of dress up my camera for various assignments:
1) I modified a RRS L-Bracket for Sony NEX7 to fit the Pentax K-01. It allows me to do some serious panoramic work in portrait orientation. All my Nikons has a L-Bracket on. Notice that I don't use the supplied camera strap. I like the Gariz leather hand strap which fits very well and giving me a very good grip on the camera.
2) I like the design and size of the K-01 very much! As opposed to being small and thin, the K-01 is rather "fat & thick" but it provides a great balance when using heavy lenses like the Samyang 14mm and Zeiss.
3) This is the GGS LCD Viewfinder which is excellent for videography work, and when used outdoor. Although it looks big and clumsy, it provides yet an excellent support when used with a shoulder rig.
The K-01 is a very versatile and capable camera and it is also very easy to use. Not only it produces excellent results, it also opens up possibilities such as ease of focusing manually (with focus peaking). When one is used to it, you will be rewarded with so many choices of K-mount and M42 lenses to choose from. For all my videography work, I only use manual focusing. In this aspect, the K-01 outshines many other cameras I've used.
Please feel free to comment. Thanks.

How I "dress up" my K-01
I'm sure many of you have seen pictures especially Landscapes. The Transition between Sky and Foreground. The Bright and the Dark transition. If you look carefully,you will notice a carefully processed one and the less careful. The Less careful ones are the halos which some may say its ok. To me its not natural to look. That is what I wish to perfect. What I'll be sharing here is to reinforce what I understand…it took me quite awhile to digest. I'm not perfect.Its troubling me for some time. Having A GND Filter or No Filter method? As long as it gets the job done faster choose which workflow you feel comfortable with. In the end is the final outcome of the picture. Below will be in a series and breaks here,through pictures and explanation. I myself can return for reference and comprehend if I forget the steps. I don`t write it down or explain I will forget. There may be shortcuts here and there though.Feel free to sh...09-02-2014, 10:10 PM
This is the technical tests that many photographers have been waiting for. The Sony Alpha 7, the smallest full frame mirror-less digital camera. Many have raved about its capability. See how does it stand to a technical review by Dpreview.
This is what Dpreview has to say :- The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. Its compact size, broad feature set and very good Raw image quality make it a compelling option for those wanting a large sensor. Unfortunately,...23-01-2014, 10:29 AM

A couple of weeks ago I started a brand new love affair. I want to soar like an eagle and fly with the wind. I've started training to qualify for a licence to fly a Powered Paraglider. You put a motor with a prop on your back, harness yourself to a parachute wing, start the motor, run a short take off run from almost anywhere, and then fly off into the sunset like below : The Paraglider itself is an amazing subject to shoot: Apart from the adrenalin rush associated with when you put your life at risk, the aim is to shoot photos from a perspective not usually available to most people. Here's a combo selfie while flying a powered paraglider over Pulau Indah, and a photo o...17-12-2013, 01:56 AM
Once again this year we are going to trek from Chame to Manang, the homeland of one of our Nepali friends. This trek is part of the famous Annapurna Circuit. If you want to trek on around the Annapurna circuit you will need about 25 days. This part of the Annapurna trek offers the best scenery in Nepal.
Our journey starts with the Holi Festival in Kathmandu on the 17th March 2014. Holi Festival is also known as the Spring Colour Festival. This ancient religious festival is celebrated by Hindu devotees in Nepal and India. Devotees would throw colour powders, shooting water cannons and balloons filled with colour water at each other including photographers, tourist and observers. For more information about this Holi festival please go to Wikipedia.
