just another guy trying just another thing.
It’s in the Bag: Pentax K-01 + DA*16-50 F2.8 + Metz 58 AF-1, originally uploaded by john m flores.
Via Flickr: Helping out a non profit tonight (Platinum Minds) at their annual fundraising event. Platinum Minds helps bright students from inner cities and other tough environments stay focused on education and get exposed to opportunities in the broader world. Good group, good kids, good cause.I produced a video with them last fall. Used the Panasonic GH2. I also took photos at their Entrepreneur Leadership Conference. Used the Pentax K-5.   I’m curious to see how the K-01 performs in this kind of environment. Initial tests of low light AF and flash have been very promising. Hope to take advantage of Face Detect AF as well. Don’t worry, the K-5 will be there as backup. And I’ll probably squeeze in the Panasonic GH2 if it will fit in the bag. And I’ve got a friend volunteering as second shooter. We’ve got the bases covered.
