  • Hey Folks, Looking for some suggestions on a smaller camera for mainly video purpose.  Here are some of the things I'm looking for. 1.  Does not need to be Pentax.  But something small.  But not...
  • Replied in Reduced to $300!
  • Replied in Now only $479!
  • I haven't used D800 or D7100.  But I use D300 for work and Pentax K-5 and other Pentax for pleasure. K-5 is every bit as well built as D300.  Image quality is better from K-5 also. (I shoot RAW.)...
  • You can indeed turn off the power on the RFN-4s receiver by pressing the power button. I've been using it that way for about a year (or more) now. It works great. In fact, the RFN-4s stays on my...
  • According to the US SMDV distributor, they are exactly the same items. B&H is buying them from SMDV with their in-house brand on it. I've been using RFN-4s for more than a year now with my D300....
  • I guess that's what I'm wondering about.  What features are you focusing on?  EVF and articulating screen?  Faster sync speed? What exactly is the "color wheel"? I'm not sure if 14-40 f/2.8 zoom...
  • Other than the articulating screen and EVF, not sure what the advantage of the OMD would be. The OMD sensor is smaller, but the body isn't. It's a good looking camera body though. Is it the...
  • This is a strange question.  I use my K-01 a LOT more than my K-5.  The only time when I prefer K-5 over K-01 is when I'm using big long lens like 70-200mm f/2.8 or 300mm f/4.5. I wish I had...
  • I'd get it right now if it's in the US.
