PropaPH: I'm a media professional and spend all day looking at images on a computer, in a company of more than 500 similar workers. The overwhelming trend in software interfaces in the last few years has been towards neutral-to-dark backgrounds to help reduce eye strain for people who work long hours constantly staring at a monitor. Sites that use large areas of white background are visually uncomfortable and seem amateurish to me for that reason.
White hurts my eyes, I hate it.
villagranvicent: I am sorry but this body design look pretty tacky to me, reminds me of those Honda Civics with neon lights and noisy exhausts.
There is a black body option.http://static.bhphoto.com/images/images2000x2000/1465422689000_1257876.jpghttp://static.bhphoto.com/images/multiple_images/images2000x2000/1465423615000_IMG_640299.jpg
Jesaja: Hey Sigma and Tamron, come back to K mount battle field.
sportyaccordy: Jesus Christ. 688g. Would it kill Pentax to make a crop camera that doesn't weigh a lb and a half? I couldn't care less about weather resistance.
The Canon EOS Rebel T6s (EOS 760D) has roughly the same battery life as the Pentax K-70 (440 vs. 410)
Additional 100-150g won't kill you. You can lose your body weight for that amount in just one day. :D And btw, my middle name is Canol Trail ;-)
It has a glass prism too (vs. pentamirror in cheap Canonikons)
Valiant Thor: Congratulations! As expected, award goes once again to depictions of war, conflict, human suffering, gloom, despair, agony, depression and misery. I can't decide which is better, these awards or the Sony acid in the face awards.
I guess good ole photography that uplifts the spirit with beauty and wonderment just ain't the "in" thing anymore.
I'm with you. I'm so tired of this s**t.
Reilly Diefenbach: 177 MB is a lot of overhead for a bit less moire and no gain in resolution. Good job, Pentax, though.
Here's the math ... pixel shift effectively doubles resolution.http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7886047725/sigmainterview
Mike Griffin: Pixel shift looks amazing. Looking forward to seeing its effect at ISO other that 100. More to the point, how does it perform at slow and fast shutter speeds.
Just a hint:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=pentax_k3ii&attr13_1=pentax_k3ii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=1600&attr126_0=normal&attr126_1=highres&normalization=full&widget=340&x=0.0010703672290628236&y=0.2981604395966686
Adam Palmer: That is some amazing tech. Sony if you are listening I want that in my a7rIII
My thoughts are exactly the same as yours.
I think I'll wait for the Sony a7R III with a similar pixel shift technology. E-mount has a superb selection of available lenses.
cjf2: Great photo of an interesting view. What is happening here? Is it water from multiple springs all flowing into a stream?
Yes, this is just one of many intermittent karst springs in the area.https://youtu.be/KTQ8FKThdjg (shot with a PS camera years ago)https://youtu.be/pU35sNZhy7A (another typical karst spring shot the same day, 300m distance from the first one)http://www.notranjski-park.si/en (for more information, visit the Notranjska Regional Park website)
codeNsnap: I can't seem to find photos of the bag in action in the five different configurations either here or on Mindshift's website.
TheManWhoWas: Sorry to bitch but, "Provide a scene that is impossible to reproduce today.". And the winner is... a picture of a tree reflected in water. Very nice picture for sure, but hardly in the spirit of the challenge IMO.
Please feel free to reproduce that photo. The tree is gone. All that's left standing is its trunk. All branches were broken in the worst ice storm in living memory. Can you imagine 4-6 inches of black ice on everything?
Let me google that for youhttp://lmgtfy.com/?q=slovenia+ice+storm+2014
Karl Scharf: Makes me feel REALLY GOOD about my Sony a77ii. Sorry Canon you missed the boat on this one!
Post-purchase rationalization, also known as Buyer's Stockholm Syndrome :)
I already know the winner.
photophile: Lets see....Renault 12, Citroen 2CV...and I think Vauxhall/Opal Victor. Definitely 1980! What a great day to go for a waddle :-)
FYI: in German-speaking countries, the Citroen 2CV is called "Ente" ("duck"). :)
And the first car on the right is Opel Rekord C (1967–1971)
steelhead3: Tell Sony to come to Oregon and be safer from these natural disasters....with 12,000 workers laid off from Intel we have plenty of experienced workers available.
Dbosch: This guy holding a camera needs some serious manicure job.
Btw, "this guy" is a female person.
gbdz: You need to be a bit lucky to get a shot like this as well.Congratulations.
I understand completely.
