On article Samsung NX500 shown as discontinued (271 comments in total)
In reply to:

rrccad: lol.. this story.

I don't know maybe the fact that they haven't released a new camera in over a year, and any new lenses in over 20 months may be a hint?

or the fact that they shut down samsungcamera.com in January?

or the fact they pulled out of photokina?

does anyone REALLY need to reach out to samsung and ask?

2016 Photokina is in Sept. You are posting in March.

Admit mistake when you get your simple facts mixed up.

In reply to:

yahoo2u: Interesting how this is marketed....1" sensor, no evf, with a high price....Nikon went down this road with the Coolpix A, a moderate fail... even though the A had a APSC sensor.

"it was competition to Rico"

No, it was not. Coolpix A was released first. Ricoh GR a few months later, with cheaper price, killing Coolpix A.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 First Impressions Review (992 comments in total)
In reply to:

BigOne: I have to note one observation I've had over the years. I never saw a "Pentax fanboy". Pentax customers never start holywars about their cameras on any forums. They never brag about fastest this or largest this. They patiently wait for new models, pick lenses for the oldest mount on the market (since 1956!!!) and just enjoy what they have. That's what I call loyalty.

Not a single post from Pentax fanboy? LOL. Yours was the first . JimC1101 was next, and then 420deimos. There are tons of Pentax fanboys on DPR. I would even go and say that there are more Pentax fanboys than Nikon fanboys, despite Pentax having much lower market share. And it's been always like this for at least 10 years. Back in 2008 and 2009 a website did camera of the year poll, and Pentax fanboys went berserk and were promoting the poll on pentax forums and blogs like crazy.

Here were results:

2008
Pentax K20D - 70% | 11014 votes
Pentax K200D - 5% | 814 votes
Nikon D90 - 3% | 588 votes
Canon EOS 5D Mark II - 3% | 555 votes

And same poll in 2009 for camera of the year.

Pentax K-x - 30% | 562 votes
Pentax K-7 - 23% | 432 votes
Nikon D3S - 18% | 341 votes
Canon EOS 7D - 15% | 289 votes

"there are no Pentax fanboys on the internet" lol -- when things are total opposite.

If you haven't seen Pentax fanboys, that's your problem. Or you might be one yourself. There are hundreds just on this site. They also whine a lot. Ask DPR admins how many times they were accused of bribery by Pentax fanboy for not posting K3 review fast enough. In fact, it became a joke. They would pop up in random threads and demand review.

They also, like other fanboys, accuse DPRof being incompetent if the reviews aren't glowing (go back and read comments on K01 review).

ewelch: The still equivalent of 8K video.

Who's got the storage space to justify this?

Oh, I know. People who can afford a $50,000 camera and "normal" lens.

Wild Light. read was he said. He didn't say 8K means 100 MP.

steelhead3: I didn't know that DPreview had become video site...can we expect reviews of the new Sony, Panasonic, and Canon video cameras?

DPR did no news story on FS7 and nothing on FS5

nowo1978: The Nikon D4s and Canon EOS 1D X are "purposely excluded" because they are "in a class of their own", but the Pentax 645Z is evaluated with the bunch? Strange things happen around here ...

645Z is not a sports camera so DPR is correct. 645Z isn't in the same class as 1DX and D4s

Nukunukoo: I wonder if Samsung instead opted to MFT to begin with?

MFT os not open. It's proprietary mount owned by Oly and Pana.

In reply to:

technotic: The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

"Sony Digital Imaging is a sole consumer oriented division."

Just a Photographer , not it' not. It's part of Sony pro video division.

They started with the 14 MP sensor also found in cameras like K-7. That sensor wasn't that good in 2010. It would be a couple of years before they released a camera with a better sensor, but by that time they were behind Fuji and Sony.

jonny1976, is this the best you can do after proven wrong? Did Pentax not pay you enough this week?

Here is GR that was sold for $404 just yesterday

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ricoh-GR-16-2-MP-Digital-Camera-Black-/172000377993?hash=item280c057c89:g:ihYAAOSwo6lWP3nC

In comparison Rx100 III still hold it's value better.

For Pentax DSLRs it's even worse. They are all 1/2 in 6 months. You are just a moronic idiot to use this as argument, given you are a Pentax fanboy that loses value more than any other brand.

I don't want 645D. YOu can keep it. Now what are you doing in these comments about A7rii?

Cihangir Gzey: Good review with loads of negative points to warn against a dissapointment later on.This is a 3200-USD MILC which will be changed with a new one next year and value will drop dramatically and only God & Sony knows when a firmware upgrade will come to clear up this beefy software related cons list partially. Hardware related ones will stay there until it becomes a true paper weight. IMO the below items can't be corrected up with any firmware upgrade and real deal breakers for current DSLR users (I only use copy-pasted items partially to avoid being over limit):

Camera focuses stopped down in AF-C, ...
Eye-AF and Lock-on AF not available ...
Camera drops to 12-bit mode ...
Exposure parameters frozen while AF-C is engaged
Buttons and dials ...
Inane interactions ...
Buffer is sluggish ...
Video never shows low-light advantage of full frame sensor
4K shot continuously for 30-45 min can cause overheating
No touchscreen
Very limited battery life (IMHO, THIS IS THE ROOT OF MANY PROBLEMS)

Cihangir Gzey, as Rishi mentioned in the comment, the con list is long since the review is very comprehensive. They can make any camera con list long or short depending on the mode of reviewer and thoroughness of the review.

Doesn't prove crap. Your argument is nonsense. The camera gets gold and 90% because that's what the reviewers think it deserves.

jonny1976 i a Pentax fanboy. I might buy 645D in soon as it will be $900 on ebay, but probably not. It's old camera with CCD sensor, slow with less DR than APSC cameras and no lenses. I think I will pass even at $800

As for GR, here is brand new for $550

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-BOXED-RICOH-GR-BODY-DIGITAL-CAMERA-BLACK-16-2MP-/400956516097?hash=item5d5adee701:g:T-sAAOxy~TdR5kik

You can find cheaper used ones as low as $400

In comparison even two year old RX100 III holds it's value better than GR

Most people in Pentax forum wait six months before they buy as they know Pentax camera will cost 1/2 by then.

In camera industry, Pentax is worst when it comes to losing retail price in 6 months.

jonny1976: looking the comparometer i don't say any revolution compare to nikon d810, living aside the medium format, both in high iso or dr. then i look the sample in gallery and watch my photo of 645d and 30 years lens and i cannot understand if it's the operator or the hype is still only hype

jonny1976 is a long time Pentax fanboy who has been posting incoherent ramblings you see above, for 7 or 8 years if not more. 645D is an old camera. It was launched for 10K now you can find it for less than $3000 on ebay. It's slow (can do 1 fps) , large, not many lens options, and sensor is not even close to modern FF sensor in performance.

jonny1976m you are an idiotic Pentax fanboy, When it comes to Sony, you citee ebay prices, but for Pentax you are citing adorama prices. Do you think we are stupid? You can find K-3 as low as $500 brand new on ebay, even lower for used ones.

Pentax cameras are world renowned for losing value within six months of launch. K01 went from 800 to 300 in 3 months. This has always been true for Pentax. Sony on other hand has much tighter control on prices and prices don't fall as dramatically as Pentax.

You are obviously a Pentax fanboy. 645d with CCD sensor doesn't have any resolution advantage, and not to mention it's much larger slower camera.

Andrew Reid is an idiot when it comes to rumors. A few years ago he would post almost every NAB some ridiculous rumor about some amazing camera Panasonic was about to release. He starting doing this even when AF100 had just started shipping (hurting AF100 sales). A lady working for Panasonic even went to his forum and complained about it. He probably baned her.

That didn't stop Andrew Reid. He would do it every NAB. None of these Panasonic rumors turned out to be true.

Lets also not forget that Andrew Reid also holds dubious distinction that he got sued by Red for defamation once. That's a record for a blogger who blogs about cameras.
