  • What I have to wonder is how many times has Ricoh made an announcement about a Pentax camera, that they did not come through on? That is what we're talking about - Ricoh.  They are in control and ...
  • It is only silly if you don't understand how markets work.  It's the comparison of similar products - one towards the beginning of it's life cycle and one near the end.  I'm simply pointing out ...
  • So, if they happen to notice the 645z price holding, they should expect an equally good FF to do the same. If anyone actually analyzes the situation, they would see that the K3ii was simply an ...
  • It's not a weight issue for me either.  I would never choose to shoot a different camera or lens because of weight when someone is paying me for the best images I can give.  To me, that means ...
  • As a wedding photographer and a guy who use to do a lot of wildlife photography, I'll say that for me there is no comparison.  Wedding photography has been 10 times the demand - physically and ...
  • I'd be willing to bet they won't miss the holiday sales season unless it is absolutely unavoidable.
  • Replied in New to DSRL
    This is why I mentioned the budget. I meant to type KS-2, since that is the one with the tilt/swivel.  Thanks for pointing it out for the OP.
  • Replied in New to DSRL
    Just about any camera can do decent macro photography, but if I had to choose a deciding feature it would be an lcd that could tilt and swivel.  Macro can so often be at foot level and fixed lcd ...
  • I find it unusual to have people paying lots of money for photos to say "don't get in the way".  My clients overwhelming say to do whatever it takes to get the good shots.  But like I said, ...
  • Everybody does things differently, but when I do weddings, I always have a few flashes on a stand with an assistant moving the stand to the right angle and height.  I vastly prefer this for the ...
  • Agreed. I have a k-50 and never use it at a wedding except to do video on occasion - mostly because it is too loud.   I would also add that a kit lens is near useless at some weddings and Nikon ...
  • Created questions Slider set-up question
    I want to put a heavy duty ball head between my tripod legs and a slider. The slider would have a Manfrotto 577 quick release plate on it.  I don't want to spend $200+ for a Manfrotto ball head ...
  • it's not the camera, but the person behind the lens who makes a good image vs an average one! Nice mood you captured to match your loneliness.
  • Not that the K3 is perfect, but it's an amazing camera in my opinion.  Maybe it's because I learned to take photos 45 years ago with an slr that had no features beyond the very basics. What we've ...
  • That guy better hope a poacher doesn't come along and try to put him on the dinner table. Pretending to be an animal in the wild is not always such a good idea.
  • Thanks for the link Ron.  Dang, it would be nice if they spread the sensitive points out a bit.  It sort of defeats the benefit of extra points if you can't use them.  I mean, if you're shooting ...
  • Created discussions Autofocus point question
    Using a K3 and 85 set at 1.4 taking studio shots of motionless people with a focus point selected on the outer edge of the frame, results in out of focus shots at least 80% of the time.  I'm ...
  • My criticism isn't the design of your poll, just that volunteer participation in polling cannot be even close to accurate.  What the actual percentages are, I have no idea, and I still won't at ...
  • In no way can the results of this poll be considered even close to accurate. First, it's a known fact that those with a problem are far more likely to go out of their way to complain and to ...
  • What he says, makes quite a bit of sense if you're a pro.  However, the negatives he states for owning Pentax are not so important to most non-pros.  If you're a consumer who wants a great camera ...
