On article RED unveils RAVEN, a lightweight and portable 4K camera (161 comments in total)

There is a rumor about Ricoh buiying Red :
http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/16-pentax-news-rumors/304059-pentax-ff-spring-2016-a-21.html#post3375946

It could be a clever move from Ricoh, Red build their own sensors & processors, it could give Ricoh/Pentax some independance from Sony/Fujitsu.

The user who spread the rumor, Kenspro, is pro photographer affiliated to Pentax.

Pentax is a dedicated photo company, they think about lenses before they release a body.

Sony is... something else.

Azzy: I'm surprised they put SDM instead of DC motor in this

It's the Tamron supersonic motor.

In reply to:

colesf: If Pentax's past is any clue to the future, then
A. It will be a year behind schedule
B. The AF and metering performance will still lag behind everyone else

You can't bring out a new camera system based on either decades-old lens designs or hoping that legacy lenses will suffice. They need to bring out many more updated lens designs with reliable AF motors.

"metering performance will still lag behind everyone else"
The Pentax metering system is better than any other brand...

In reply to:

W4YNE 1: As with most Zeiss lenses very impressive and I am tempted, my only worry with manual focussing is if in the future my eyesight begins to deteriorate what I will perceve as being in focus will not be?

Nice images with the new Milvus and older Zeiss lenses.

At 100mm f2 ?
Good luck.

It's funny, the Pentax K5II was capable of focusing at -3 Ev since 2012, but DPR don't even notice it in their review's pros & cons :

Same story for the Canon 6D :

If you shot moving objects with pixel shift, the moving parts of the image won't be processed, but only the non-moving parts !

Zenza R: Only limitation of this camera is the little control over DOF... For now, there is nothing to do about it :/

"Wait another year or two, Sony might put a curved APS-C sensor in that same body ;)"'
You won't see a curved sensor in a zoom camera, it needs a fixed lens to perform correctly.

The only industrial standards we have came from Europe, we share them with Germany, U.K... in fact, most of them are worldwide, like ISO's standards.
But yeah, i agree, we have inner standards for wine, cheese and food stuff... but not for cameras, sorry.

In reply to:

Shangri La: Very intriguing product. But I see 2 major things:

- IOS only, no Android?
- SuperRAW mode only works with DXO RAW converters, but not other RAW converters?

Hope other manufacturers will follow suit and mature the concept. Price will go down too.

As said in the article, the raw files include a DNG which can be opened with any digital development program.

In reply to:

Couscousdelight: The best sensor coupled to the worst image compression.
This is stupid, this is Sony.

"...Says the Pentax user with a camera that produces smoothed-over RAW at low resolution...."

?
I've never heard than Pentax smoothed their raw, except for the K5 above 3200 iso.
B.T.W. why "at low resolutions" ?
When Pentax announce Iso 100, it's mesured around 100 iso by DXo, not around 160-200 like Sony or Nikon...
So, i guess you just don't know what you are talking about :)

But hey, if you're happy to shot a camera than can handle a proper comression, good for you.

In reply to:

HubertChen: After reading through the comments I am very amazed. So here we have two parties:

The innovative explorers:
- Hiking 15 days up to 3500 m and work at - 10 °C
- plan, coordinate and execute 70,000 Images
- Create a 365 Giga Pixel Panorama
- Create as a vision of what is possible in Ultra High resolution
- Write a web app and establish a server that can serve such monster picture (sure can not be off the shelf image sharing app)

The Critics
- overlook the accomplishment
- criticize anything

I am not shocked by finding negative comments, but I am shocked that negative comments are the majority.

I am sad for the readers of this web site. It is not the first time here I see innovation met with cynicism. It is likely this will motivate innovators to publish their new stuff elsewhere, making dpreview a less interesting place.

"- criticize anything"
Sorry, but the stitching is poorly made, and the subject is boring( hi-res snow, who cares ?).

A subject with a lot of details, like a cityscape or forest landscape must is more interesting than snow, stone & sky.

Yep, it's still the lossy compression which is used by the A7RII..

The stitching quality is a shame...
and i don't understand the choice of that subject for such performance, it lacks of details and is too homogenic.

brownie314: I don't know about Canons bodies and sensors, but I love those new small primes. They look great. Nikon should wake up and see what Canon is doing here.

The pentax DA40 was tested by Photozone, it scores 4/5 on imge quality...

http://www.photozone.de/pentax/630-pentax40f28?start=1
IT scores better than the Canon 40mm pancake...
http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/772-canon_40_28_apsc?start=1

So, aren't you tired to say constant BS ?
B.T.W, the Pentax is full frame compatible, what about the Canon one ?
