On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (522 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dave Oddie: Always liked Pentax cameras but they have "done a Sony" here. Added some new stuff which is good and removed some old stuff which is useful.

As a Sony A77 shooter I was annoyed Sony removed the GPS from the A77II so was interested to see it added to this new Pentax. GPS is a feature I find genuinely useful.

Then I noticed they removed the built in flash. While no one ought to use those as the main flash they are very useful for providing fill-in on a sunny day even if only for holiday snapshots.

I also have Metz ring flash which uses the built in flash as a controller in wireless mode that that would not work with this camera.

Why do Japanese camera manufacturers give with one hand and take with the other?

Why can't improved models be just that? All the good stuff in the old one with additional features/improvements without removing other features?

Fortunately I don't need hiking or go far into the jungle,lol. I have a home studio to shoot family, babies, portraiture and bodies......

So the next model K-1 will be great with all those features. But k-3 II is just a improvement from k-3...Actually a use couple of Metz flash with fill in flash built in on its body's and use FluCard connected to my iPad, that gives me freedom to shoot from any awkward position .

With all those modification proposed by you, it will be another camera. Actually who needs a built in flash. Maybe a amateur or a "entry level" photographer. Articulated touch screen for what. Maybe in the next model K-1, lol.....

In reply to:

audiobomber: K-3 high ISO performance is identical to the D7100's according to DXOMark. DPR, please correct your review.

Note too that the K-3 sensor doesn't suffer banding like the D7100's.

I don't understand why you couldn't find some highlights for the K-3 instead of the cheap shot D7100 comparison. How about one of these, which the D7100 can't match?
200,000 actuation shutter
full magnesium case with stainless frame
large raw buffer
-3EV metering & AF
-10 to 40C temperature range
three f2.8-sensitive AF points
IBIS

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (521 comments in total)
In reply to:

Agalliac: Only boys of Canikon need autofocus because they operate their cameras on automatic. Who cares about the video module. I have a camcorder that costs U$20.000 . What interests me is the quality of the image , the sharpness . In terms of image quality, the only camera capable of rivalling with my Pentax K- 3 is my PhaseOne. Sorry DPR but you review are tendentious .

I only wanted to show that I can be as cynical as the dpr is.Yes! I do have a PhaseOne . No! I don't need a DSLR for video. Yes! I do use Pentax on streets for portraiture and to shoot indoor events ? I think mauritsvw got my point.

TomasJacko: jaundice?

Actually she was in good health and working. The lights inside the airport, my blindness and my inexperience in calibrating the colors were responsible for this result. I'll try better next time.

On Senior FA in the stewardess challenge (6 comments in total)

Hello everybody! Sorry but I do not own a PS nor know how to use it.
I started using the LR3 2 months ago and being colorblind, I know sometimes I exaggerate using it. I made changes in exposure, contrast, luminance,sharpness, etc.Removed some expression marks and pimples using brush and some noise as well.
With respect to the background, I would like to inform you that you simply check the setting on my camera (above) and you will be sure that the background blurred, came exactly as it was triggered by my camera. I used a 70-200mm F2.8 at 145mm with my subject far from the background. Any beginner should know this would be the result ! All my lenses have an aperture of F2.8 and F1.4 (55m). This ally will croped sensor in a ratio of 1.5x , brings me back an excellent result with respect to blur.
With that said, thanks for your votes and your attention. Please check other portrais on my gallery.

Post a photo or two that can capture " the meaning of the lyrics" .... Nice to capture a moment or a meaning. Makes us think and compose something abstract. It's not just a picture of a stone. Congrats....

I gave 3.5 and can't agree with 0.5 . 3.5 is OK!

I wish I had a chance to post another picture if you let me know before.
I am very sad about the disqualification! First because my photo was excellent and second you did not determine that the plant should be natural. Think!
