  • Here's an interesting alternative. KPS T5 Geared Ball Head. This seems to be ...
  • There's something called "marketing." :-D

    I don't remember, but does FZ1000 have the same subsampling scheme as GH4? I'm guessing it does not. In that case, FZ1000 probably isn't comparable to...

  • Thanks. I understand what you are saying. I think it would still be beneficial to see what the performance difference between the bigger and smaller ball heads would be. Even if the smaller...

  • At first, I was thinking the same thing ... how is this better than GH4? ... especially when it's $1,000 more?

    But as AJC pointed out, the selling point of this new Canon may be that it's discreet...

  • I am wondering about the same thing. How is this a "big deal" compared to GH4?

    I don't remember DPR being as excited about GH4. So, from that perspective I understand the sentiment about the...

  • As with the previous reviews, very nicely done. I wish DPR would do more reviews like these to help the enthusiast/serious amateur crowd.

    One thing that could've been helpful is the stress test...

  • Replied in Stupid...
    I agree with the sentiment.
  • I have both K-5 and K-01.  I'm assuming K-3 is similar to K-5.  K5 and K-01 are both very well made.  Different ergonomics, but both feel quite solid.
  • Will ship worldwide. Pristine condition.  Good as new. Shutter count of only 5547. Original owner. Photos are of the actual item.  More photos available upon request. Includes camera, strap, ...
  • Just replied to your PM. Anyhow, still happy with the RFN-4s.  Like I said, I wish my Pentax cameras had a Nikon 10pin port so I can use the RFN-4s on my Pentax K-5.
  • I've been itching to do the same ...  But the K5 is still so good.  Actually, quite hard to believe how much the price has come down on K5 & K5II.
  • Yup.  Though I've not had K-50, I've had a fair number of Pentax DSLRs.  None of them trigger the flash when the shutter speed is over (faster) than 1/180s. I never understood why Pentax did that. ...
  • Ditto. Did the same thing.  Then, thought about buying FA35 again, but with FA31 already in the bag and other lenses to buy, couldn't come around to getting FA35.  But liked it while I had it.
