Azurael: What is with 4K video but at a frame-rate so low it's useless...?
First the GoPro Hero3+ Black, then the CM1, now this. Just so illiterate salespeople can shout 'ITZ GOT 4-KAYS!!!!!111!!!111!' ?
I guess if it's good enough to grab stills from, you could view it as a 15FPS low-res burst mode but this being Olympus I doubt it will be. They aren't exactly famous for video, are they?
Homam: What good is 4k at 15 fps?
@JaPYes, there's a massive encoding overhead.
wpstl: I'm not sure what I should do. I don't know what it means to "loose money" but it doesn't like something I want to do. I know for certain I don't want to lose any money.
I'm ESL too.
Just a Photographer: For those awaiting LR6. I wouldn't have too much hope right now anymore for an imminent LR6 release. The reason for that is that ACR and the development engine from LR are actually one and the same thing.
There has never been any difference in editing functionality between Adobe Camera RAW and LR's editing module so far . Only the looks are much different. The engine that runs the editing module has been the same since the first release of LR.
@just a photographerI never said that one is superior to the other, I just pointed out that some parts are shared between the two.
I mean that all the features in LR also get in CR, so it's very plausible that there are two development branches, one for the "old" CR (that has ceased seing new functions, only bugfixes and new camera/lens support), and one for the "new" CR and LR.
There could be two different development branches.Besides, LR goes hand in hand with PS, and that major update will be released probably in june, same as last year?
...I believe it's "loose change", like coins to spare... ;-)
Increased color depth beats "moar" Megapickles as on now...16-36MP is enough, as opposed to two-out-of-three interpolated channels...
LensBeginner: No! I want 18-2000 constant f/1.8!!!(big facepalm)
Much the same as the famed "Super Ciofegon 18-1000mm f/2.8"....http://www.nadir.it/pandora/CIOFEGON/Ciofegon.jpg

Tune out the commercial stuff and it's a really enjoyable video.
Mike FL: Marketing is already running away from Pentax after Ricoh puts hands on Pentax.
Would you rather have a good product, just not advertised much or a mediocre product touted as the world's best?I'll take the first one, thank you.'nuff said...
spidermoon: Like the K-S1, the DOF switch is replace by the video switch, and there is no dedicated button for dof check. Maybe nowdays it's an outdated feature since you can review your picture after taking it.
I know.I was arguing that FP is a feature oriented towards the use of manual lenses.Since it has been found primarily on lower-end bodies, it goes against your assumption that it's the top-tier body users that use MF lenses the most.
@tailingsmmmh... I don't know...The first Pentax cameras with focus peaking were not top-tier ones, IIRC (K-01 & K-30).I agree that focus peaking is little more than a gimmick, but it certainly says "M lenses" out loud...
Mister Roboto: What the heck DPR? Why post a blurry OOF messed up studio shot killed by +10 Noise Reduction?
"We have two Galaxy Cameras. One has exposure issues [...]The other one exposes correctly but has a softer lens."
So, in a word, a killer product! :-///
"OH NOES!!! PENTAX IS DOOMED!!!" (TM)Adorning posts on DPReview since 1826
It's indispensable if you have to use manual lenses that exhibit a focus shift at certain apertures.There are some gems that can be had for peanuts, but you need that function to focus properly.
As far as DoF preview goes, it is not all that useful if your target size (print or monitor) is massively different and thus DoF is going to change a lot in the proces..
For my need, the sweetspot is 16MP ATM, though it could become 24MP sometime in the future.
What I miss (and it will probably not make news anyway) is an improvement in dynamic range and color depth, hardly any improvement in many years... and no, "14-bit RAW" cameras don't count if 2-bits are wasted with no meaningful information and only lots of noise. That only makes for bigger files.
shutterbobby: Last comment on interview with Ricoh...Thanks you for waiting for FF for long time,I invite you to look forward to it and RENT IT??!! So its not even for Sale when it comes ;)

Porobabry they ahhh meant "renses", rike the ones you mount on camera...
Rutterbutter: Lets see what would we want...- 36+ Megapixel- 1/250th / sec flash sync or faster- wifi- focus peaking- Dx lens compatibility- Faster Focus speed and sensitivity- 4K video/30+fps- Touch screen with toggle to de-activate- 7+FPS- ISO Native 50-102400 or higher- 100% viewfinder- Weather sealed/magnesium body- Digital focus crop. Like D7100 for maximizing focus coverage- Better in camera HDR and live preview of filters- No AA filter- 1000 shot battery approx- Swivel screen and articulating.
Feel free to add to this. but this would probably be the best selling camera ever..
My view on that list:
1. ok2. not going to happen3. maybe (there's alway flucard)4. almost certainly5. that's a given6. even better than K-3?7. I doubt it8. No9. mmh...10. 50 has never been native11. ok12. of course!13. ?14. gimmick, IMHO15. of course16. what for? I'd be more than happy with 500-60017. doubt it
