"CCDs are the baseline science sensors but we are also pursuing hybrid CMOS detectors as an option for the guide sensors and expect early prototyping of both."

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.

solarider: Specs: RAW (SRW)

What, no DNG files? What were they thinking?

I'm not familiar with real raw, what is it? In what way is it better, how? Thank you.

In reply to:

solarider: According the Ricoh Pentax website http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/dslr/K-S1_Black#!product-specs: "ISO Sensitivity Auto: 100-51200 (1, 1/2, 1/3 steps), auto range selectable"

http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/dslr/K-S1_Black#!product-highlights
"High-resolution images produced by the 20.12 megapixel CMOS sensor with a super-high sensitivity of ISO 51200".

Noticed DPR is saying at page 1 that the top ISO is 102,800 - is that a typo?

Edit: super high ISO also stated on page 13.

marc petzold: OMG, by all through the years - Pentax Special Editions...that one is the worst...a DSLR for 10-14 year old, for their FB & Twitter Pics...c'mon Pentax, get back to business and be serious! But i can believe this "Sweet" Collection stuff would sell nice into asian countries...for the manga & anime guys..it looks basically like something from Nintendo...why not sell a Super Mario Edition?! couldn't be worse than that...i can see it near christmas...Daddy, i want that freaky Pentax Kid DSLR! <kid moans>

I'm sorry I wasn't clear,that was a poor attempt at sarcasm to marc petzold above... kids should have an entrance into photography, if it's by colored cameras, why not? I'm all for more kids learning the ropes, and having fun while at it.

Good for people to know that 10-14 year old kids shouldn't get enticed into photography with sparkly colors. Let them have cake and eat it too.

Mike Sandman: It would be very helpful for dPreview to publish an approximate schedule/agenda. I don't have time to listen to all of the company reps, but I could make time to listen to the two or three I'm most interested in...if only you'd let us know when they'll be "on." Same with the photographers you're speaking with. Thanks.

Hi DPR staff.. thank you for making this available.

I'd like to hear from Ricoh/Pentax... remember the little guy, owned by the huge company about as large as Canon that tries harder? Will we be hearing from them... do they know they've been invited? have they? :-p
