Impressive, to say the least... O.O"

Of course, the camera is intended for video, so it may shine more to videography, but low light performance for stills is also sounding...

I really hoped for industry to make less MP sensor and start to make more DR and Sensitivity chips with more Bit Depth output. THAT will be something ;)

On Pentax O-FC1 FluCard: The wireless details article (122 comments in total)

Nice feature.
Hope it come to other pentax cameras to :D

I would definiteley will love having wireless capabilities like those. Well, at least wi-fi transfer and control. I don't think live stream is possible in older models though :p

On Ricoh announces HD Pentax DA AF 1.4X AW rear converter article (52 comments in total)

I've had the Tamron 1,4x PZ-AF MC-4 converter that have a power zoom contact and those worked perfect with SDM and DC lenses, with almost zero penaulty on quality. But don't understand the need of a firmware upgrade in order to use it. Could it be the camera will recognize the TC and do proper adjustments in SR?

In reply to:

greypixelz: sad he had to reach this age in order to understand that suffering and horror is not 'photojournalism' or 'the public's right to be informed'.
there is such a thing as human dignity and dying is part of it. photographing death or any kind of suffering for public display is undignified and disqualifies the photographer as a human being.
man should be immortalized on the highest peaks, not the deepest of valleys. this whole culture of decay and death is satanic in nature and goes against what man really is. the spirit of humanity is about rising from the abyss, not falling in it.
God bless you all!

The fact that there is many war photografers out there taking pictures of suffering and death doesn't make they vultures or satanic guys, looking for death profits. I believe that the mere fact they are risking their lives to take pictures of the worst the human beings has to offer is to make a point and alert others like you and me, who are safe and confortable, dreaming as if everything are blue, to prevent it to keep happening from now on.
People have to stop romanticize some facts of life and start to make something that really is usefull for somebody.

I would like a bit more reach on wide end, say 18-40, and it would be a much better range.
But looking at all weird focal lenghts of the Limited line, 20-40 make some sense though... :P

But, despite that, the price, IMHO, is quite low for a Limited lens. I bought the FA 31mm for about the same price.

Really glad Ricoh is putting Pentax brand up in evidence, and keep investing on it.

In reply to:

SungiBr: Well, people will shout about the DF hability to use most of nikkor lenses ever made like if it was never though, but Pentax is been doing this since the K10D. And despite the lack of a aperture coupler ring, you can use non-A lens and even screw mount lenses, with less compromisses on usability than de Df's aprouch. I Really don't see that as a bonus now.

@Bamboojled,
@ALizarine got it right. I wasn't talking about FF or APSC, but just a coment about the fact that even the guys at Dpreview noted that to use old legacy nikkor lenses one will have to deal with so different configurations, that would take all the fun of using older manual focus lenses. Using, lest's say, an old and cheap (and somethimes very nice) screwmount 50mm 1.4 takumar, that not even have an aperture lever to automatically allow the camera to close the blades is just as simple and easy as pushing one lever and one button.(by the way, on Df one have to set aperture ON the CAMERA an ON THE LENS to use no-AI lenses. On pentax you have not. Just set on the lens)

shnikus: Finally Nikons answer to Pentax K-5!

Not that i would have the money now but, if Pentax could do something similar, like a digital Super Program, or even a K1000, that would be something to. Of course, do it Full Frame :)

I donwloaded and installed and noticed a real improvement in speed compared to LR4. Very fast cataloging and processing
Or it is just a impression?

SungiBr: Ricoh is unleashing all products Hoya promissed ages ago. And took less than two years to do it.

They seems to be listening all of us pentax users, and are showing some serious commintment to pentax user base

Ok, Ok, maybe I expressed myself with wrong words (poor english, sorry....). Maybe just "releasing all products Hoya promissed ages ago" was the right ones to begin with.

Still, even if some of those products didn't apeal to most users, some are more interesting than others (yes, i'm talking about the flash the people here seen to ignoring).

WilliamJ: The next ones ? A Barbapapa serie, then a DragonBall serie, then a Naruto serie, then a Doraemon serie, an AnPanMan serie, a Sazae-san serie... We were waiting for a progress in photography, not a childish regression. Please reassure me, didn't we ?

Actually, i think Doraemon version would sell a lot more :p

On Pentax MX-1 Preview preview (214 comments in total)

Everybody complain about DPREVIEW being biased over canikon but, despite some (fair....) rough coments about the K01 and lack off a proper review of the Q, they always write good preview/review of Pentax cameras. They seens they liked the preproduction sample and, that's good sign.
Maybe the MX1 won't become a king on the segment, nor threathem the likes of Fuji or Panasonic, but i think this will be one of the (unfortunate...) few hits of Pentax nowadays. Still, i prefer the original Q design (thankfully, it is now with a more palatable price tag) :)

Since the release of the Lytro Camera, the creator stated that the device could capture "real3D" images and have the native capability of produce holographic files(whatever it will be reallity or not).
It's interesting to follow the advances of this little product, because, IMHO, it's by far, the most significant groundbreaking on photography sice the dawn of the digital.

eNo: Oops, no 32-bit support, no XP... I just saved myself some money. I guess it's 3.6 until my PC or I die.

They droped 32bit support only to Macs. On windows you still can run it on 32 bit processor. But an upgrade to a Win7 is definatelly not a wast of time and money
