wow , this place is gorgeous , nice shot ..
el desierto es hermoso
vodanh1982: The question is "Does the Canon CEO use a camera?"
I bet he uses the uber Powershot S110 ! (LOL)
very nice shot , well done !
This place looks amazing., Nice shot !
GabrielZ: My favorite types of photography are landscape and macro. So the increased DOF of the smaller sensor, combined with compact size, low weight, ability to change lenses and relatively affordable price, would suit me quite well. But I want to wait for a full review to see how image quality measures up. And hope that down the line Nikon releases a real macro lens for this system.
Im also surprised that Nikon hasnt added a macro lens yet for its 1 system cameras ,
OneGuy: So what can 15 pps (pics per sec) camera do that 5 pps cam cannot? That is the question.
@RolandThats exactly what I was thinking !
Igor Fradlis: Looks like good old Nikon F4
Yeah , you got it spot on ....the resemblance is quite uncanny !
(unknown member): Is that a sensor or a postage stamp in there?!
LOL ! That cracked me up badly...
Donnie G: When I look at this camera I see some Nikon styling cues that remind me of their film era F2 and F4 cameras, but mostly I see a Sony NEX with a 1" sensor and Nikon innards. Maybe I'm wrong, but that sure looks like the new Sony accessary shoe sitting atop the V2's EVF housing. Given the cosy relationship between Sony and Nikon, isn't it possible that they have started to share more than chips during product design and development?
Yeah , but having too many partners sounds promiscuous and can lead to trouble ....
nikvis: Oh G! It's too ugly....
GabrielZ: This is what the V1 should have been. From initial impressions here, I really quite like this little brick.
Yeah, this camera really looks promising...and the nice hand grip is a very welcome addition !
Oh wow ! This camera looks gorgeous , it reminds me of the superzooms of 10 years ago ! I loved it based on its looks alone....
is it me or does that camera look very anorexic ?Maybe I should start a campaign saying "no to size 0 cameras" ! LOL !!!.....
Ahmet Aydogan: The physical pin configuration coupled with the sheer size of CF cards are both major issues that are negatives in my book. I'm not sure if XQD's have taken care of the contact pin issue, but do we really yet another card format (remembers SM, XD, MS, etc.)? The speed is a plus, but like Pelasdf, I feel that SD cards are the way to go if they can be speeded up.
@GraevtureSD cards are not as problematic in some embedded systems because they can use the SPI bus which is supported in most embedded systems and they do have have the advantage of smaller size and low power consumption hence in some embedded systems were space and power consumption are crucial SD cards are still the preferred choice
makeitworst: Where the hell are the XD Cards!!??? I have Olympus cameras, GREAT Cameras, that are now media card Orphans because these jerk Flash Card makers adopt and DUMP formats at their whims! The largest XD cards that were ever made were 2GB! And those are nearly impossible to find! Even CF cards are becoming too expensive and hard to find (for older DSLRs like the early Nikon's before the switch to SD)!! There was nothing wrong with CF, considering the size they could have made 128 or 256GB cards by now!
This is BS!
@makeitworstLexar recently announced 128Gb CF cards, as for XD cards well its not too big a deal that they top out at 2Gb because the only cameras that use those cards are very old models discontinued years ago so chances are they have low resolution and a 2GB XD card will hold a lot of pictures, there are some XD cards still around if you look them up....
Gintaras_J: No external stereo microphone input??? If so, I think they lost one potential buyer immediately.
I dont think this camera is meant for serious videographers hence the the lack of features for microphone. If you are serious about your video recording you certainly should be looking for seperate hardware for dealing with sound
Benfr69: Personally I find the design sexy. Now to the facts.This is a mid-range DSLR playing in the same court as the EOS 600D or the D5100. I am talking here about the price range.
Despite it's pricing the K30 features many "pro" features which are on none of the above mentioned cameras. These features are obvious:
- 100 % weather sealing- 100 % pentaprism viewfinder- Eleven point AF system with 9 cross type sensors- 6 FPS continuous burst shooting- 1/6000th of a second shutter speed- Two user modes- Twin control dials
and last but not least a WR kit lens. And all this in a 900 USD package.
I think it is the best recommendation for people starting out in photography or sports photographers on a budget.
Also this promises a lot for the K-5 successor in September. (Photokina)
yep if I was looking for a new SLR all over again I wouldnt hesistate to go Pentax ! Their cameras are looking ever so appealing especially if you factor in the affordability of their lenses compared to other brands. This camera offers plenty for sure
