  • I was just looking at that rule too. The report said no interchangeable lens cameras and no camera with a fixed lens longer than three inches. So. . . If we take that literally as written, a...

  • Replied in New Q please
    Yeah.  This, I have to admit, is probably the most convincing argument against the Q system.  I look at the Q and I see a ton of potential, but it's hard to believe that potential is ever going to ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    The problem I have with so many of these size comparisons -- and cost comparisons too -- is when they put the Q7 or Q-S1 with one lens next to Camera X with one carefully selected compact lens and ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    Samsung NX Mini. . .   It's cute, and it's interesting that they would produce something like this.  Today I wouldn't consider it viable for my purposes: no hot shoe, no in-body stabilization, ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    I think this is your imagination.  You've IMAGINED that Ricoh are going to abandon the Q, and suddenly it's like a real thing to you.  But you have no evidence to indicate this. I think the system ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    It's the only mirrorless system Pentax have got.  If they're going to be in that space, they need to either figure out how to revive interest in the Q system, or else scrap it and come up with ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    Comparing the size of the cameras with their kit lenses is really missing the point.  These are interchangeable lens cameras.  If you're only going to use the kit lens, then you might as well just ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    From what I've seen, the Q7 and Q-S1 have been considerably cheaper than those other compact mirrorless bodies you mentioned, and the lenses are smaller and cheaper across the board.  Yes, there ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    More megapixels would only bump into the diffraction limits more often, and the gain in real resolving power would be questionable. I'd rather stay at 12 MP and go for higher dynamic range and ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    Uhh. . .   The LX7 and LX100 are fixed-lens cameras.  AFAIK they're good ones, but still it's a different thing. To complain about the Q's "mediocre" lens lineup and then go to fixed-lens camera ...
  • Replied in New Q please
    I just got my Q7 Premium Kit a couple of weeks ago, and I'm still learning everything it can do. It would be nice to see some signs of life in the Q system, though. The Q-S1 was disappointing, like ...
  • This makes me wonders why photojournalists don't all carry high-end compact cameras. Or do they now?

    Historically, it was the newspaper reporters who pushed to replace 4X5" press cameras with...

  • I have two words for you, just two words: Pentax Q.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    I finally got my E-M5 eyecup to stay on pretty well. If you take the rubber piece off, there's a couple of plastic parts held together with little plastic tabs that work like rivets. These are...

  • My impression. . . Well, obviously getting any kind of useful info out of these guys is like pulling teeth. That seems to be typical of most Japanese corporations, though. It's not unique to...

  • I know you were being sarcastic, but damn. . . Pentax already have that feature built into some of their cameras. The K-01 has got a "random cross-process" setting that introduces different color...

  • I don't know where all the venom comes from. I mean, yeah. . . I know this is "teh interwebs" and there's always a peanut gallery ready to trash anything new and different, but. . .

    I think it...

  • I'm kind of amazed how this article brought the whole film-versus-digital argument out of the woodwork. Hey guys. . . 2003 called and wants its internet flame war back! But I guess if there was...

  • Err...  You know the K-01 is a mirrorless camera, right?  I can't speak for the rest of the crowd, but I wanted a K-02 with an EVF and a second command dial, not a pentaprism and flashing lights. ...
