To those that follow my blog, I was sick for about a month and did not have the energy to do much. I am feeling much better now and am resuming posting information and updates to here.
I was reviewing the stats and noticed that people are searching about long exposures with the Pentax K-5. The current firmware allows up to a 30 second exposure in the modes that will allow you to change settings that affect the shutter speed. It is important to remember that this camera also provides a “B” or bulb mode and when set here the shutter is open as long as you hold down the shutter release. When using “B” mode a remote is almost mandatory to avoid camera shake induced by the photographer touching the camera during the exposure.
Here is an exposure made in “B” mode and a remote.
