  • To me, it looks stronger and that's a good thing if it is. I have a Panasonic GH4 and the articulating screen makes me nervous every time I use it with a lot of people around. For years, many said ...
  • Could be. I doubt that very much.
  • I believe it is far more complex than that.  Pentax may not even be looking for a profit on the camera itself. It may be sold at a substantial loss in an effort to sell FF lenses and much higher ...
  • I'm completely perplexed by this view. Ferrari doesn't have tow hooks on their cars and I'm sure do not advertise their vehicles ability to tow.  In fact I've never seen a Ferrari towing anything. ...
  • The answer for me is that I will not shoot more video, but that I would use a Pentax camera and Pentax lenses more often when shooting video. Not exactly sure where this fits in the poll, but I'm ...
  • Robert, I'm not sure why your post has been met with with this much negativity. It seems benign enough to me.  A simple wish list and the desire to find more info on what to expect on the new FF. ...
  • I'm similar to you.  I do a lot of video, and although I don't always use the same camera for both, it can be convenient at times.  However, the number one reason I like using a DSLR for video is ...
  • I agree, and from what I can tell, most vidographers use manual no matter what camera they are using.  Getting good clips in manual is not difficult. It take practice, knowledge and patience, but ...
  • Regardless of the outcome of this poll, I think there is absolutely no doubt that video has taken off with the average person.  Sure, phones and dash cams capture most of what we see out there, ...
  • I use a Panasonic GH4, which is really geared towards video. Still, I don't use auto-focus and I don't think many professionals do either.  I doubt any manufacturer's autofocus would be considered ...
  • Well, sometimes an extremely shallow depth of field is exactly what you want.  I use it a lot. Having the option is good.  You don't have to use it, but if you want it and the lens can't do it...
  • Sorry, I have to disagree.  The reason to shoot at 1.4 is to get a more narrow depth of field for a particular effect.  While it's not necessary, it is certainly a very good reason for the person ...
  • I guess it's sneaky if you think they are trying to trick you.  However, if their goal is to simply make it easier for the customer to know the final price, then it's just a different way of ...
  • Here's the criteria that I use: I want the ability to isolate focus, so it has to have the ability to open to F1.4. I need to be able to nail focus on people that are moving or if I'm moving, so it ...
  • Popularity often times has little correlation to functionality.   A company like Pentax can fall behind the competition in popularity for many reasons.  Once behind, it can be difficult to catch ...
  • I like the shot.  All great images are the result of catching the right moment , at the correct aspect, in the right light. However, some cameras increase the odds of that happening (features that ...
  • Maybe, though I'm not a good judge of jpeg quality, since I virtually never take them. Yes, they are.  I should have also included cell phones, and entry-level DSLRs in that statement. The point ...
  • I find it hard to believe that anyone buys a FF because of how images look with no post processing. I thought that is why beginners bought point and shoot cameras.  I guess I'm out of touch, ...
  • I too am waiting to buy a FF.  I have the K3 and wouldn't be buying another crop sensor until they have a more major upgrade and then I'll get one of those too.  I suspect there are more like me, ...
