bernardf12: The annoying flip out screen can be added to the list. Why would you want a feature that will help you 2% of the time (over a tilt screen), but annoys you every time you take a photo. It also makes it harder to compose because you have to turn your head away from the subject you are photographing. My flip out screen ended up not being used for tilting, and stored with the screen outside. In that configuration it functions as a fixed screen, so as a design it is a big failure to me.

I have to disagree .

A fully articulated display is the #1 feature I want to see return to digital cameras .
Personally I believe it's the best finder solution ever made, and I would benefit from it for the majority of my shooting .

Prognathous: Hopefully for the K-3 replacement they adopt a centered articulated screen, and not the selfie-oriented side-hinge design. There's a good reason all* >$1500 cameras that offer an articulated screens keep it centered.

* By "all" I'm referring to Pentax 645Z, Nikon D750, Sony A99, and the new $1500 Samsung NX1. I'm not aware of any camera of this caliber that uses the side-hinge design.

I like a centered disply too, but there havn't been many cameras with fully articulated centered displays .

Horizontal-only display movement only works for video .

michaelbs: How come there is a download link to the DNG converter only? I need a link to the raw convertor ACR 8,7,1 download.
Anyone, please?

Thanks for sharing ....

On article New CompactFlash card to allow RAID-style 'mirroring' (100 comments in total)

Well, the whole point of Raid 1 is to write all data to two seperate harddrives at the same time - in case one failes, you have all data still availble on the second drive in the array .

Seperate is the key here, physically seperate with their own interface and controller .

No articulating screen, no G .
But with that small sensor, in a fairly large body, it's redundant anyways .
Who in his right state of mind would spend that kind of money on such a thing ?
Just my 2ps .

Just when I got over the headaches from reading white on black, it is now blue on black .

You open a thread, and it's dark grey on light grey .
Windows with rounded corners ?
Flat view seems to be optional all of a sudden - like it's 1999 .

Look - there is a reason why 99% of all the message boards use the same layout and styles - they work .
DPR used to be borderline bearable, but no more .
Being behind is only charming to a point .

Black on white, and don't get creative .

Photokina is in September 2012, and that's not even the release date ...
