“…the only major barrier to fast and efficient operation is the relegation of movie shooting to the exposure mode dial.” Seriously is the time difference between turning the mode dial and pressing a button to enter the movie function all that relevant – you are talking about an extra second at the most !
This is great. Any chance you sharing the PP you used to get this effect.
I found the HDR in my Pentax Kr worked better - and hassle-free.
Since there is an issue with the quality control for Pentax lenses I am assuming that this is only with the glass coming out of their Vietnam unit - if so is there anyway one can find out the origin of mfg. before buying the lens ?
If DPR suggested better glass than the 18-55 kit lens for the K7 would this not be even more relevant for the K30. So what would be a "matching" walk-about lens for this camera?
