Sony colours have issue problem most of it across. It seems a little too pink for my liking. Except only one Sony indoor pic is the winner. Most of winner points to Samsung for me but in low light Samsung wasn't so good due to white light was blown out.

Ramius: Camera body same as Sony A7, but not full format = Fail.

What do you think you are doing? Are you crazy to argue at each other for nothing? This makes this forum looks like a circus.

Fact is Fuji is NOT going to rush to make full frame mirrorless camera since there are thousands of photography around already own X system here with lots of lens design for APS-C sensor size. Fuji is fully aware of that. They are not stupid. If they make full frame, then they have to make lens to make it work with full frame thats the problem. Having it full frame and shortage of lens are a bad move making people irritating.

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: Nice overall but about 120% over saturation in colours and contrast.

Would have to tweak the settings to get something more natural and realistic.

Also, the white balance is off in some pictures, too much blue.

Although in the same category than the EM1, the colours don't even come close.

I'll pass.

It was due to shadow got clipped in too early in that camera default setting making things more saturated and contrasty. There are lots of setting you can change to make it more tame like review said that in one of page.

darklamp: Proof, if it were needed, that even a good photographer can produce an utterly uninspiring image that looks fake.

And that Microsoft lacks anyone with good taste at all.

Oh, I forgot to say, I always detested that image - right from it's appearance. :-)

It wasn't photography fault for making picture so saturated. It was Microsoft who started it after acquired his picture.

mikeyL: I think it would be a nice image - if it was in focus. Always seemed blurry to me, even on top quality monitors...

Yes Vasyl that wallpaper was not high resolution at all. It was meant to be display sharp in lower resolution monitor unfortunately.

Spot on James. Thats the case when Windows Vista came in etc thats what MS was trying to do to get them off XP for many years.

Bugs Bunny: XP is gone, Long live the Mac OS
Microsoft had that os for more than 10 years
A lot of people do not trust Microsoft OS.
Apple is years ahead.

My friend had so much issue problem with Mac OS X and it wasn't fun at all. It was very unstable at times. Apple apologised for a major problem and updated to recent version last month and lots of problem seems to have been fixed. Windows XP cannot be beaten for stability, the most stable I have ever seen.

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (441 comments in total)

Still same soft studio comparison. So Im puzzling by that. :\ Maybe its the lens or so. Yeah I think AA simulator seems not important to me. I shoot mostly raw and can fix moire easily. Its pretty impressive camera, I had high hope that K-3 will deliver very good but it seems this review shows this high hope really fade to me. I guess it is to do with Ricoh using different incamera software is not as good as old Pentax camera use to be much better I guess. AF seems let down which is a pity but not all camera are perfect except Canon are so good with AF for some reason.

James Booba: Filmed on D4S ... rofl.

Yeah I prefer to tend toward Canon for video quality James due to better white balance accuracy. And more accurate colours of skin tone in particular.

Pretty much so. Pretty common to see normal DSLR camera with overheating sensor from doing video mode sadly. You need proper video camera that can cope with sensor heating when long video over few minutes. Sensor in video camera design for long video time and doesn't get hot, it has better cooling system in it to keep the CPU and the sensor cool. CMOS always get rather hot when exposing long time. Good example off Nex 7, sensor gets too hot easy and get warning when video over 2 minutes or more, thats lacking the cooling system inside which is a problem.

naththo: I think these video need to fine tune the contrast it looks boring and flat. Sorry to say that but I can't help it.

My monitor is perfectly fine and calibrated. I like to see contrasty and colourful video rather than that. Most other video I have seen is much better than this video here.

Pitzik: Is the test image correctly taken?
Look top right, the Jack Card. It seems to be blur or out of focus. Compared even to the cheapest K500 the sharpness is so far and lower. It seems strange, is it?
Your view?

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3588043 < K-3 NR problem.

http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/172-pentax-k-3/244848-pentax-k-3-random-blurry-image-theory.html < Also that one too.

And that http://ricehigh.blogspot.com/2013/12/k-3-too-aggressive-noise-reduction-for.html

That's the fact Bossa was talking about.

I agreed Bossa. This is a wake up call for everyone to watch out for any NR setting and etc. Default setting will never be perfect it is down to manufacturer factory setting. So you have to do your own way in your own setting to refine it to make it better. Like reducing NR like I did on Sony and so should do the same for any other camera.

In reply to:

bossa: All those noting the soft images from the K-3 should look at the NR settings and set them to low or off. The Pentax user forum discovered that the NR is quite aggressive out of the box and that images were softer than the K-5 before changing them.

Thats unfair solarider really.
