On CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2 article (195 comments in total)

Cool! I loved K-30 back then, and this one not as good looking as that but has an articulated screen and keeping ruggedness as well.

Why I always fall in love with Pentax bodies! I even feel like; " I can pull the trigger on a Pentax q-s1 body to just buy and have fun with C-mouth lenses!" even I don't like the whirling bookeh... Even I find sensor very small for creating a nice DoF ... Even then I wish to own a Pentax camera.

I suck, that I let my budget to decide on my camera purchase. If I would not suck as big as now, I definitely would own a Pentax 645 digital cam and extensive range of medium format lenses....

All kit zoom lenses from any brands suck! But this one suck less, thanks to its collapsible design.

(PS. Maybe the only un-sucking kit zoom lens is belong to Olympus e-m1... But then it sucks on size category! Nothing is flawless in the world of optics!)

Mark Chan: Use cases:

Aerial photography on drones; much better Q than gopros and lighter than the SONY equivalent (with the lens). I can imagine using this with the lens cap lens and doing video shots!

extreme angle photography

selfies! (duh)

Time lapses with a water proof casing / weather proof casing

astrophotography!!

Microscope photography?

IF the sensor package is that from the EMII - and the 1/16000 seems to hint somewhat to that, then wireless tethering for product shots??

Just give me access to the device to play!

Like this guy did by his GM1... even some lighter "purpose build" systems as this would be more usefull

GM1 packs great videography and full camera functionality. I doubt about Olympus video quality and wondering does it enables all the juice you can get from a PEN camera ?

I would love to buy one, and placed in to a old (60´s, 70´s) 80€-150€ range quality medium format film camera (like old voighlanters or zeiss or even kodaks or agfa´s!) and get the juice of this bellows hood attached camera...

But these moduls are so thick ! They should consider making it a bit thinny. And for mirrorless sake, why it is even thicker than an pen camera ?

smaller sensor than aps-c & fourthirds, bigger sensor than most of the compacts, extensive physical control buttons, Single "all singing-all dancing!" lens...

Seems like word "bridge camera" finally makes sense.

Not looks as good as my GM1, but I wish I would have a svivel screen too!

Its brilliantly designed Fn button also will be 2nd shutter! Ergonomically, SUPERB.

Such Tele lens better to have IS. Sad but true; disappointing specs.

Retzius: Are these lenses made in Korea or in China?

Does it matter ? IPhone made in China, while they produce horrible domestic branded cars!

Its all brand (price) issue, not country.

I was hoping to see AF... Disappointment!

Now I'll search for M39, or M42 mouthed 200mm F2.8 or 135mm as well.

On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (287 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They could make a body or hand grip (like Panasonic did for gh4, not necessarily bulky as the video grip) , which would suit 5100,5200,5300. And even maybe suitable for 3100,3200,3300 series, and built it many in numbers, would drop the costs and selling better etc etc.

Instead they made a whole new camera (or did they?) which has GPS (that others can track you!) and Wi-Fi (which would not work for my window phone anyway!).

End of the day; there is D810! Why would I spend a single cent for anything else from Nikon! (forgot to mentioned D4s, D750 are also cool stuff.. But man! That ovf and shutter voice... And off camera jpegs ! Amazing!)

Actually anyone can track anyone else; as far as gsm connectivity allows. For further tracking it required more advanced stuff.

But at the same time; " dude, why do you worry to be tracked? Are you in to bad things ?" Kinda question bugle minds...

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I would understand all the comprimises, if it woupd be an M mouth camera. No need to be full rame, but the pyscal size of the lens should be M size! It feels so fake to me (even the design looks better than ordinary)

That is also true :) as long as M has no autofocus mechanism, what is the difference between using it with/without adapter!
