  • The A77 is not an SLR, its an SLT - the mirror never moves

    An SLR has a mirror that moves Single Lens Reflex

    Sony stopped making SLRs for the mirror less NEX and a7 lines. All their 'mirror'...

  • I disagree - I think if you are using this as an equal still/video camera, you will put up with the slower for stills to get a smoother zoom during video shoots.

    I loved using the RX10 as a video...

  • Neither is an SLR

    Neither of these companies make an SLR

  • John, I have found that the 70-200 gives me what I need to shoot football, and gives me versatility to cover different spots on the field. Look, a 300mm might give the OP a little more reach for ...
  • DRabbit - this isn't the mirror flap issue of your infamous K3 time-lapse problem. Look, I use my K-01 practically everyday for two years - shutter count 12,757. I open the door constantly, as well ...
  • The K3, with the right lenses, will fulfill your needs and wants just as easily as the 6D will, and you probably can get a lens package with the body for less than that 6D will give you. First ...
  • Well, you could do what I am planning on doing, setting them up as time lapse cameras. I figure my trusty K10 with batteries in both the body and grip could take more than a day of images, and it ...
  • The K3 has a stereo mic port, so it would record stereo, as opposed to its internal mic, which is mono. The great thing about the K3 is that it shows you your audio input onscreen, showing if you ...
  • I don't know, a Leica under two grand (sans lenses) that doesn't feel like an overpriced Panasonic, with that slick body and touchscreen, is compelling to some. And, well everyone knows the...

  • Replied in K-7 vs K-x
    It really depends what and how you shoot. If low light is your thing, then the Kx is the way to stay. I am guessing the K7 has a faster AF, and is weather sealed, and has a mic socket for video. ...
  • The touchscreen and controls look awesome, and the design of the whole camera is beautiful.

    If it had a mic jack, I would seriously think about saving up for one. But it doesn't, and if that is...

  • I really like the idea behind this, the design of this, and the presumed capabilities of this.....

    but

    Right now, with what and how I shoot, I need a camera that has video capabilities as well. I...

  • While shooting in M mode, you can adjust EV while shooting video......
  • I shoot video all the time with my K01, and utilize manual lenses. A lot of times I just shoot in Auto mode, or shoot in M(anual) mode, adjusting as I would shooting stills. Never use Video Mode on ...
  • For close focus, there are a lot of inexpensive manual focus lenses out there you may want to try as well. I recently started shooting more macro, so I went after a A 100 2.8 macro, which I got a ...
  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article

    ...And then again in a year when they come out with a 4K video recorder based on this (at least, that's what I am hoping)

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article

    They may not switch, but at that price, this may be their secondary camera....and with all that legacy film 645 glass floating around, and adapters for 6x7 lenses, that type of shooter would easily...

  • ....thats regardless the sensor, we just want the FF Pentax already. The 24mp sensor sounds the best to me....
  • In concur. Eventhough we still do not have a Pentax Full-Frame, I so wish that they would take the sensors from the A7 and A7S and have two cameras in their lineup. But then again, I thought they ...
  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Thanks Richard for the update......I can wait for next week, as it seems this review will be very comprehensive, including several lens tests as well
