Ok so who are the 2 who claimed they own this camera?
Mmd66: X-a1 question. I've been researching the heck out of this camera. I have a panasonic fz35 and lx5. I never use viewfinder and am mostly a scene mode type of person. I take alit of outside nature type photos and photos of my three young children. That said will I notice a huge difference in image quality if I upgrade to x al with kit lens ? Thank you in advance.
Yes the XA1 will give better quality images but you will obviously lose the compactness and reach of your other cameras
Everlast66: I am surprised how the NX1 (£1300 in the UK) got a higher mark for 'value' compared to the K3 (£700) and K5 II (£500) that have half its price?!?
Supposedly it has 2-3 times more/better features for its price to get a higher mark for value.
Indeed it has some unique features like the BSI APSC sensor, powerful processior, 4K video, but the K3 and K5 II have some features that the NX1 lacks, like in-body stabilisation, Pentax shooting modes, some unique ergonomic touches and the available lens line-ups are not even comparable.
And i prefer OVF to EVF i've tried it many times and OVF is superior for judging when to release the shutter, EVF always seems to mean missing a better oppurtunity by a fraction of a second and that is crucial in many photographers that i know, especially wildlife and sports.
I think people like bashing Pentax, the NX system needs better lenses and Samsung needs to seriously consider it's place and direction in the market. I can pick up a Nikon D610 for about the same money and image quality would be better. Im not going to mention Video as it doesnt interest me. I shoot Pentax i like the K3's size and i have a reasonable range of lenses from various manufactures that wiill cover my needs. Samsung has been very slow developing it's digital cameras since they ended their Partnership with Pentax when they could of kept an established mount they chose to start yet another system which dillutes their protential market share and which leaves converts having to spend much larger amounts. Pentax K3 is a top of the line DSLR in APS-C format and will sell many more units than the NX1 will, Image quality might be better but do i change to an unkown quanity with its lenses quality and third party options but also what after sales service going to be like..............
We PhotoBooth You: I still think Pentax are falling behind too much.
I find and Eye-fi is more than efficent to transfer images quickly and effortlessly.
Eh isn't this 13 days early? It's to soon for an April fools. Seriously how come this little gem got a review so quickly?
could be interesting
A7s mkII will be hear before DPR gets there fingers out and review the A7 mkII, why so long to do a review? friend has had his from its launch and the video is mind blowing.
Horshack: Yet another article about a Pentax camera. How come no mention of Canon or Nikon?
Doesn't Canon and Nikon get enough coverage? a New FF and new entry level cameras to take on rhe "Big 2" is news, anyway Canon released everything before the show and Nikon need to sort out their quality control issues before announcing a new camera.
Matt1645f4: Looks good cross between a K3 and 645D, hope the specs impress too once more is known about it.
As long as it offer K3 Specs with Wifi and or NFC connection, it'll be a winner

Prognathous: Ricoh did this 15 years ago. Quote:
"One of the RDC-7's most interesting features is its "PRO" high-resolution exposure function. There are actually three different PRO modes, two of them making use of the same basic innovation: The camera has the ability to take two full-resolution shots in very rapid succession, displacing the CCD sensor a half the width of a pixel between each shot.(For the real technoids out there, we're told this is accomplished with a mounting arrangement involving a piezoelectric actuator that minutely shifts the CCD during the second exposure of the series.) The camera then takes the two slightly offset 3.3 megapixel images and combines them together into nearly 7 megapixels of raw image data."
It's nice to here people saying nice things about Ricoh and their innovations, They have certainly moved Pentax into a very Strong position in the market.
Matt1645f4: It wouldn't surprise me if it has Sonys new 50.6 mp sensor that's been mentioned on several sites. You can guarantee it will built in shake reduction
Pentax SR works fine

Will we get a dx0 review of this sensor?
Be surpassed by a 64000 mk2 with in 18 months
Matt1645f4: When will it be commercially available? It would be perfect for wildlife photography.....
Be great for macro stuff on Mars,
flektogon: So, the CCD technology is not dead yet. I would even say that it must be better than CMOS, if in such an expensive project it is preferred. Just wondering when we are going to see CCD in the digital photography again.
I've just been going through my Flickr account and I really prefer images taken on my old Pentax k10D then those on either my K5 or K3. Would love to see someone offer a large sensor 24mp ccd sensor in a dslr or csc.

The Rumour site that released this sory before the offical announcement also had detail of a Canon 5Ds with 50.6 MegaPixel sensor made by Sony.
