I'm primarily a computer and photography enthusiast, but I have a variety of other interests as well, from video games to fountain pens. I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously; if there are any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

As a photographer, I use a Pentax K-5 (as well as a K-r as a backup or secondary camera), with a small selection of Pentax lenses. You can also find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

comment Why is dark-frame subtraction on my Pentax camera shorter than the exposure time?
I don't see why this should be downvoted. Temperature is indeed measured by the camera and used to determine noise reduction.

I never drew this conclusion from what the manual said... Thanks!

There is no cap on my K-r. I've had exposures several minutes long and the dark-frame subtraction time continued to increase with the exposure time, but it was never as long as the actual exposure.

comment What are some common gotchas and missed capabilities migrating from compacts to DSLRs
This question is somewhat subjective but useful, and an answer would be a list of possible problems that would benefit from collaborative editing, especially when there are answers that are intended to be added to one master answer. Flagging for moderator to make community wiki.

@MattiaGobbi: See this DxOMark comparison for an idea of what this image sensor can do: dxomark.com/index.php/Camera-Sensor/Compare/Compare-sensors/… Well, technology has advanced to the point where APS-C image sensors are clearly competitive with full-frame sensors...
