In reply to:

gigabloke: In all the video reviews I have seen so far, the LCD is shown to have very limited range of movement; none, including dpr indicates that it can tilt to full horizontal for waist-level shooting. Will it not do that?

And how far to the side does it swivel? Not very far according to this video report.

I could be wrong on this 4 legged friends. The idea is to keep the LCD center to the lens' axis, regardless of which direction one turn the screen. Helpful , and thoughtful, when doing pana, liked with nodal ninja head.

It might take a while for this feature to grow on new user.

Daft Punk: Lots of ignorance here. Some surprisingly dumb comments.

Lets be clear completely clear - the Pentax 77mm lens is NOT designed for corner to corner resolution. It is a portrait lens designed with rendering in mind over test charts.

If people cannot get their head around this then their comments are , frankly, ignorant and best ignored.

The challenge for DPR , is to find a lens that compares like with like. The 77mm is not that lens

may be the 100mm would be better?

Deardorff: "ISO dial attractive, but impractical"?
Many of us older shooters grew up with ISO dials like this. They work just fine.
This is a rangefinder styled camera, not the latest toy that will see 19 iterations over the next year like some companies do.

Looks good. For me, all depends on Autofocus in dusty and blowing snow conditions. That was the downfall of the X-Pro1 - for me.

@sykkys, interesting, i frequently push pull bw film using the ISO dail, one roll at a time.

rbach44: There is a problem I see in these pieces that I see often in this style, and that is the editing. To me it seems overdone an gives it a fake look, which is a shame because of all of the effort put in to do it all in camera. I don’t mean the subject matter either, I mean the soft-focusish filters, the HDRish feel, and all that wide angle perspective distortion all just doesn’t work for me. They seem like they could all use lot of burning and dodging too on those burning highlights too.

There are a lot of people saying it looks like CGI and I agree. I see it in the climate change series too: cool concept with a ton of work put in to NOT fake things, then a ton of editing that then makes it look fake. I feel there would be much more of an impact if they were edited to look like the beautiful pictures they are rather than some 3D composite from deviantart. I would love to see the raw files for these.

But what do I know, I’m just some photographer, no one is writing articles about me.

Good question, Nat. I believe in freedom of speech. when i'm pi$$ed, someone will want to wear ear plug. lol.

On article Ricoh teases spring 2016 full-frame Pentax DSLR debut (528 comments in total)

Hi there,

I was wondering would Pentax/Ricoh be bold enough to include a simple and sensible feature to their body for people shooting star trails.

Currently, the exposure is set at max shuttle speed of 30sec then it will process and write the file. this create gaps within the trails.

can shuttle speed over 30 sec be introduced? liked from the existing ... 15 sec, 30 sec. then add stops of 1 min, 2 min, 4 min, 8 min, 16, 32, 64, 126 min at 1/3 or 1/2 ev increments? This way, a star trail of a complete "hour"/64 min can be taken?

these new shuttle stops can be added via software.
