xs1 and K30....
In reply to grcolts, Jan 21, 2013

Hi GR the xs1 and K30 are 2 very different cameras. Both very capable . In good light there is very little in IQ if your printing at the sizes you mentioned.

if you prefare to shoot jpeg and do very little pp the xs1 is more than upto the job. I do recommend you use it at 6mp and set up the tone curve in camera along with the DR settings and use pasm and not the auto modes. Ive printed a 6mp 120 deg panarama 60" by 20" with my xs1 and it looks great on the wall at home.

Yes the K30 does have better IQ especially if shot raw and pp`d. The biggest advantage to the k30 comes in lowlight. It has one of the lowest noice levels at high iso`s out there.

The 2 cameras are about the same size with the 18-135wr fitted to the k30 body. They complement each other very nicely.

hope this helps cheers Paul UK
