Marlu Nature Park #3

A 3 image stitch made with the Pentax 645D camera. It was raining steady the whole time we were out which made it rather challenging to compose and shoot this image. I was standing on a steep slope which was very slippery and I needed to have my tripod as high as possible. I stood on my tiptoes to see through the viewfinder. Pentax really should incorporate Live View on this camera along with a tilting screen. Oh, and 10-12 seconds for the review image to come up on the screen is a might too long. 3-4 seconds would be far more tolerable. When shooting landscapes I don’t mind so much, but I am used to having a review image available virtually instantly on my 5DmkII. This camera is very close to my ideal camera with only a few niggly concerns I just talked about. Yes I like it. I like it a lot!!
