Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.
Homosexuality is not just about pounding other men in the pooper LTZ470. A lot of gays don't even do that and who knows what lesbians do? It is just sex, but homosexuality is not about sex alone, it is about love too and mainly. Just because you can't imagine doing it, doesn't matter others can't and shouldn't. Homosexuality is no more taught than walking. It is an essential part of people. We don't know why people are gay, but we do know they are. To deny them their identity on the basis of anciënt beliefs you most probably are not even interpreting right is just plain stupid. You should ask yourself whether or not you are surpressing your own homosexual feelings, which maybe your reason for lashing out. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/homophobes-might-be-hidden-homosexuals/
http://www.freedomtomarry.org/states/ In a lot of states it is legal. In none of Russia it is legal. But the issue is not same sex marriage it's a law against homosexual propaganda, which is effectively limiting the freedom of expression of gays and thus limiting their human right to defend themselves verbally against attacks.
It's an intolerant law. Their is no such law in the US. So your finger pointing is uncalled for and only serves to distract from the situation in Russia. We are not talking about the US, we are talking about Russia.
That's why we have youtube. To prove you wrong. Look it up. Gay Horses.
Man designed homophobia. not homosexuality. You people are destroying lives with your ignorance. Enlightenment is to be tolerant of others who are not harming you in any way. Society is not hurt by homosexuality, it is hurt by repression. Sex with children is different because their can be no real mutual consent, so it is harmful. Sex with animals? That's just a weird hobby. Animals will mount anything when in heat. No reason why humans wouldn't. When it doesn't harm the animal it is no big deal, but still kind of sad.'
The same nature that designed poo holes, also designed homosexuality. Who then are you to say one is right en the other is wrong?
Nobody ordered anything. It is called enlightenment. Think for yourself.
ZAnton: Such contests have only one aim: to show to "western world" how rest of the world, helpless underdeveloped unter-menschen suffer, degrade, live in slumps, dirt and deseases.
Just ignore the fact that half the stories are from the west will you.
Read my comment again and try to comprehend it.Also I have never been for Putin. I know where he came from and I now what he has done to stay in power. Putin is just another Czar. Just like all the communist leaders were. There is a reason why a president can only do 2 terms in the USA. Russia is a fine example of that reason. I am not saying the us political system is perfect, but again, this is not about the US, it is about Russia. Be glad the west cares enough about Russia to worry about gay rights.
That just cynical.
I don't believe most russians care about people being gay, but the government has used laws to limit gays to express their nature. This makes them vulnurable for bullying and unprotected from it. These laws have nothing to do with secular beliefs of Putins government, they are there for political reasons. The Russian orthodox church is a power in Russia and Putin wants this power behind him. Also gay rights is a liberal thing. Liberal=incompatible with russian politics. Liberal politicians are villified and prosecuted by the governent.
Next time instead of destroying all the lenses, just send them to me.
spidermoon: Like the K-S1, the DOF switch is replace by the video switch, and there is no dedicated button for dof check. Maybe nowdays it's an outdated feature since you can review your picture after taking it.
It's on the K-3. Focus peaking is not aimed at lower end. It just wasn't in the Prime II used in the K-5 (II(s)), It first appeared in the prime-m in the k-01.
It's just a matter of putting more processing power into the camera, so you can line up different shots. It would crop the image a little and would probably have mixed results.
ChuckTa: I looked at the full size photo of the Japanese man in outdoor and I see a greenish outline to the right side of the face down to the neck and suit. Is that CA but green colored?
With wide range I mean I had to use about 3/4 of the correction space on the bar in lightroom. It is not very wide from a size point of view.
It has a pretty wide range between green and blue. That is going to be a problem with foliage. Can't remove it because leaves will get a grey border.
you can still assign that function to the green button.
Anirut J: Should I buy this K-S2 or should I wait for the FF?
Pentax, you're so mean! Great things are coming out all at once!
BTW, Although my K-r went crazy and I got angry and threw it hard on my lawn, it still works except for the AF system. Now, that's one tough camera in spite of it having fallen and rolled in a boat until a piece of the body chipped away and with over 40K shutter actuation in three years.
Pentax ... I still believe in you!
Totally different league. You can buy this for $500 in half a year. The FF will be at least $2000 and you'll still need lenses. When you are going to be throwing with it i'd advise you to get an old k10d.
120mp video? CCTV wet dream?
Rutterbutter: Lets see what would we want...- 36+ Megapixel- 1/250th / sec flash sync or faster- wifi- focus peaking- Dx lens compatibility- Faster Focus speed and sensitivity- 4K video/30+fps- Touch screen with toggle to de-activate- 7+FPS- ISO Native 50-102400 or higher- 100% viewfinder- Weather sealed/magnesium body- Digital focus crop. Like D7100 for maximizing focus coverage- Better in camera HDR and live preview of filters- No AA filter- 1000 shot battery approx- Swivel screen and articulating.
Feel free to add to this. but this would probably be the best selling camera ever..
I doubt it will be compatible with DX lenses. DA on the other hand.
Robbie Corrigan: DA wide = DA12-28 f/4 not 10-30, bars don't reach 10 or 30. Probably a successor to 12-24 f/4
D-FA* 24-70 f/2.8 (High end normal zoom, sister / brother to D-FA* 70-200)D-FA 28-105 f/variable (FF Kit lens perhaps, good range for normal photography)D-FA(*?) 15-30 f/2.8 or f/4 (Will it be a STAR line? or Mid-Range)
The FA 28-105 3.2-4.5 wasn't such a good lens. It will be a new design. DFA 28-105 F4
