What about a collaborative "Wiki" for the K-3 (and other Pentax cameras)
4 months ago

Apologies if this has been done or talked about before, or the perhaps dumbest idea ever...

There are a lot of contributors to this forum who are quite expert & experienced and who have demonstrated that they are willing and able to track down particular problems, settings, strengths, weaknesses, etc. etc. in cameras.  There is a wealth of knowledge here that is scattered among myriad postings over a long time frame.

Is there not a single place where some of these dedicated photographers (or perhaps others willing to serve as scribes) could begin collecting useful information in an organized way?  It would not be the same as a thorough objective review, but it is clear that Pentax cameras are not going to get timely reviews as a general rule... I accept that DPR has to deal with the realities of the world, economics, and limited resources.

Is the idea of a Wikipedia document (or several), co-operatively maintained by the Pentax faithful (each with solid knowledge of a particular area, and hopefully with a strong sense of objectivity), that presents the capabilities, pros, cons, quirks, strengths, weaknesses, tips and tricks of Pentax cameras just too far over the top?

If we don't do it ourselves it probably isn't going to happen.
