  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    @Rishi Sanyal: Just wanted to give you a big thumbs up for showing interest in what may have gone wrong in the K-3 AF test.

    Unfortunately, even advice from Ricoh directly may not have been...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    @falconeyes: I share your concerns. I surmise GPS was considered a good fit to the profile of an "outdoors" camera.

    Still, I would have left GPS to an external unit and would have thought Wi-Fi...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Even flash systems better than P-TTL are limited when they use optical triggering.

    WIth a pop-up flash you won't have much reach and will struggle with flashes within light modifiers (e.g.,...

    "...we're disappointed by ... the disappearance of the built-in flash..."

    Really? P-TTL is so bad at controlling more than one off-camera flash, why would you put up with such a bad optical...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Yes, with improved sensitivity and better colour separation.

    However, this will only work optimally with the camera on a very stable tripod and a completely still scene.

    A Foveon sensor does...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    Can't help but think adding Wi-Fi would have been more useful than GPS (that hopefully can be turned off in order to save battery life).

    Otherwise, it is a very nice improvement on an already...

  • I trust this will be a great performer and AF won't be missed on a macro lens. The version for Pentax supports automatic metering so it pretty much ticks all the boxes.

    I wish, however, it would...

  • In my experience, the automatic generation of a camera profile from a shot of a Colorchecker does not work optimally.

    Perhaps Adobe have optimised this process for the CFA characteristics of...

  • Thanks a lot for this very interesting inside view on a factory producing some of the most exciting DSLR lenses.

    I have number of Sigma lenses that are not just excellent performers but are also...

  • It will be interesting to see how well "internet memory" will work.

    Can TriggerTrap really expect to continue as a company as if nothing had happened? Will they be able to continue selling...

  • He is downplaying the difference between APS-C and FF not only verbally. He is actually using an FF negative that has only about 1.8 times the area of the "APS-C" sample. It should be 2.25 times as ...
  • Big kudos to Richard Butler who mentioned the upcoming Pentax FF model at the "Gear Day" feature at CreativeLive!

    Thanks, Richard, for supporting diversity, competition, and speaking of Pentax as...

  • BTW, the recent Pentax four-way controllers have ridges at their edges that allow two buttons to be pressed simultaneously. This is intended to speed up AF point navigation.

    Haven't tried it...

  • @nicolaiecostel: Even Nikon fanboys agree that Nikon never manages to put the ISO button in a useful place, no matter what they try.

    Pentax cameras are not universally understood, but most people...

  • You "last option" is what Joe McNally calls "no picture". :)

    I'm in favour of omitting a built-in flash. It's only real use would be as a commander but it would not reach far and traditionally...

  • I'd like to see a battery grip with a button layout that exactly matches that of the camera (for the few buttons that are featured on the grip). There cannot be any differences as sadly is the case...

  • I'll be using some kind of patience until it will be released in K-mount. :) Seriously, I didn't check the list of supported mounts. However, I am still hopeful that K-mount support will be added...
