gbunton: There are much better options, nothing is free. I work in the Silicon valley tech sector, and i can tell you stay away from Google if you want to maintain some sense of ownership of your images.

Appreciate knowing what the better options are. Thanks.

Thanks for the update.
Can you please fix the link for "Nikon's Peers" on page 10 of ISO Invariance:
http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-d7200/10
Btw, how does the Pentax K3 compare for ISO invariance?
Thank you again.
Nic

fisherman_lol: To DPR Moderators; This jpino79 guy is been flooding this forum all day with his inflammatory comments and you are not doing anything about it? I think if he was bashing CANIKON he would be banned for life. ;)

For all the grief some nutty pentaxians have given dpr, I wouldn't fault them for letting him go at it ;-P

In reply to:

Wallace Ross: As a happy current K-3 owner I will not likely be upgrading but the pixel shifting is intriguing I think that it has the possibility to make the K-3 II the best camera available for copying art work. Even higher megapixel cameras don't reproduce colour accurately around edges.

I'm more than curious how this will serve areas like product photography... a huge boon over buying a Z...
Or a stepping stone to getting a Z :-)

ttran88: Looks like Pentax's new FF camera will be having sensor shift tech. Thanks Ricoh for innovating when the two market leaders are just hanging loose.

Re: 4 and 8 exposures - That's only one small part. The Ricoh tech adds something totally different that isn't dissimilar to foveon tech at the end result.

Re texinwien>

solarider - how is it different than the high resolution sensor shift mode on the recently released Olympus OMD E-M5 II, other than the fact that the K3 II only records 4 photos, while the E-M5 II records 8?

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1237 comments in total)

First camera to my knowledge that's hit so many excellent ratings out of so many parameters in one go. I imagine 6 months from now the FW improvements might continue to up the performance, at least I hope they can achieve this.

One hell of a shot across the bow of the whole industry. We'll see how Samsung will fare in a few years - and competitors how they respond. Remarkable stuff.

Mr Bean: I believe the higher quality mobile phone cameras are reducing the number of "consumer" camera sales so much, that the higher end cameras aren't getting the R&D budgets.

Pardon me while I take this call on my Canon mobile phone.

webrunner5: I am afraid with the Mirrorless statement and still not having the new camera out yet they are just WAY late to the dance. I have no clue how they are going to make a go of it in the long run. Having 2 FF lenses is not very encouraging either.

To quiquae: Here are a few standard with WR rating.

18-55 http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/camera-lenses/smc_PENTAX_DA_18-55mm_F3.5-5.6_AL_WR

Collapsable 18-50: http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/camera-lenses/HD_PENTAX-DA_18-50mm_F4.5-5.6_DC_WR_RE_

solarider: How true is this TOP comment? "Mind you, they have yet to provide the option of an uncompressed RAW format which is an almost universal wish from those of us who want the option of extracting maximum quality from the A7r."

Thank you.
