valtheWU: just when were all the menus designed?
1997, drunk, while playing on a NES?
i feel sorry for all the people useing this camera.
and yet i still admire niche players. i just wished pentax would use more of the polished ricoh UI.
The menu system is completely clear and fine.I tried to use a friend's D3100, and the menu sucks!
BBViet: At ISO3200:
Nikon: 1/800s f8.0Sony: 1/800s f8.0Pentax: 1/640s f8.0
1/3 stop difference.
Inflated ISO rating --> "good" hi-ISO performance
And before you say it's only a third of a stop, remember that cameras these days are very close to each other in IQ. A difference of 1/3 stop translates to around 200 points in DxOMark sensitivity score around the 1000 score range (where most APS sensors are at)
It does matter. You know, not every lens has the same brightness at the same f-stop.A DA 35mm 2.4, for example, gets a faster shutter speed than measured 2.4 would
"This and the fact that the K-30 is the first DSLR we have seen in quite a long time that does come with a dedicated movie button make it clear that ambitious movie makers are not really the K-30's target audience."You meant "that doesn't come with a dedicated movie button" :)
Well, if you look at DXO testing, the Pentax K-30's ISO rating is one of the most accurate of all.Check it :
Go to Measurements -> ISO Sensitivity.Then you can see that K-30 ISO 3200 was measured to be a real ISO of 2889, while the Sony A77's, for example, was measured to be a real ISO of 2612, and Nikon D3200's was at 2168 ISO.So, in the end, i don't think Pentax is lying about the ISO performance.
Hello!You guys say "No AF in video mode", but if you press AF/AE-L during video, the camera will refocus :)
Desert Cruiser: This was really helpful and a nice feature to see in the diving competition. Kudos to Canon, isn't the digital world just great --- what's next?
My pentax k-r features a multi exposure mode too...
Doesn't seem super impressive, but..
