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 .
plastique2: I see a few positive comments about the articulating LCD display. I on the other hand hate that change. Sorry, big partybreaker for me :(PS: Can anyone make a list of advantages of a fully articulating display versus a tilting display - including the frequency of use of each specific advantageous use of one or the other type of display?
Vertical shots are still about 60-70% of pictures taken for serious photography .
That's the images not taken to be shown primarily on a computer .
plastique2: And just to make a few points myself:
Sure, a fully articulating display is good for taking selfies, but how often do we need that?for a lengthy photo session I usually need to have a quick access to the EVF as well as a quick access to the LCD - which is best given with a tilting LCD by handling it with just one hand hand, actually with just my right thumb and right ring-finger without even removing my index finger from the shutter button.To use a fully articulating LCD I need to move at least one hand much more than with a tilting LCD. Not to speak of how a fully articulated LCD is in the way of my left hand, is more likely to be damaged, needs more moves of hand and fingers to be employed or put back.If I use just a simple push with my left thumb to deploy it - then I cannot review images on the LCD monitor, I have to swiwel it first.
So what else is there to love about the fully articulating LCD display?
Vertical shots.It's for still photography , you know ?
Articulating display - I just fell in love !
Give it a fully articulated display, and I'll bite .
Fully articulated screen, I dig that .
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 ....
No fully articulating display, no thanks .
Looks good; add a fully articulating screen, I'll get it asap .
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 .
That's a very well composed, and nicely edited image !
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 .
This looks brilliant, and is affordable , too !Can I have one for my Nex 5N ? ;)
Just me, but I never watch video reviews .
Photokina is in September 2012, and that's not even the release date ...
