Pretty noisy even at 100 iso

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1237 comments in total)

Samsung need to manufacture really fast fixed focal length lenses to compete with the likes of Nikon and Canon. Also a larger sensor (FF) would be more appealing to me as a Fashion photographer. I prefer the rendering on my fast lenses like my Nikon DC 135 f/2.0 lens. Nicer bokeh.

Does not have the most important function for me, a flash meter.

Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Sony etc all build really good camera's that in most cases out perform the potential of those using them. The K30 is a good camera, but in the hands of a pixel peeping dysfunctional user, it will be of no consequence to anyone other than those who spend time in front of a screen determining which pixel outperforms the next. Just get out there and use your stuff. Yeah, I use Pentax to shoot for magazines the likes of VOGUE & Harper's BAZAAR. But I could do so with pretty much anything out there. We shot all of our HD video's with the Pentax K-x and K-01 and I hear no complaints from the clients. My K20D's and K5's have been used for everything that has been published over the last 5 years. I almost switched back to Canon last month with their 5D Mklll. But I might just as well get the Nikon D800 if I do switch. But for now, I am using K5's and Pentax lenses. None the less, I like the K30, especially in Blue.

On Just Posted: Pentax K-01 review article (355 comments in total)

I really like the feel of the K-01. In fact we used it for our Behind the Scenes video for our VOGUE Magazine China Fashion Spread coming out late summer or early Fall. The output was excellent and it was used at 24 fps to mimic that film look. The behind the scene snaps were pretty goos as well. Our videographer Frederique Renaut got some amazing rushes. The whole video was shot with the Pentax DA 18-250 lens. The still photos for the shoot were all done with the Pentax K5's. :)

Firmware updated needed badly. Iso performance is abysmal. I am sure they will put in a fix. At least I hope so.
