Barb Matheson: OK you learned Pentaxians, I welcome some advice. I have a K10D and am ready to upgrade. I am really looking forward to a better AF and would love a higher ISO than 1600.I was interested in the K30, but do you think the K-5 11 is worth the extra cash? I can't find much comparison to the K10!Video is not a big deal for me.Thanking you in anticipation.
Hi, Barb! I'd say it's time for you to upgrade. K5 is a true gem, if you want to go on with Pentax, and K5II can only be better. You'll get yourself a true HI-ISO performer and some extra pixels. I wouldn't look for K30, the price gap between them is really no big deal. As a K5 owner, i'm glad you're not so interested in video: videos taken with K5 looks great, but as a downside you get a 1.2GB file for 2 minutes of fullHD footage.
ashwins: Why ISO6400 and 1/800 sec? Why not shooting in the evening with the same ISO but at 1/40 sec? That would be a real world sample, or?
If you can't answer that question all by yourself... i'll try to do it :) 'coz the way they did it the sesult will not exhibit too much noise!
OXwing: So why it still needs a COLOR LCD SCREEN ????I would go for a B&W LCD, and -$1000 on MSRP.
Guys, why do they need WB presets for? Am I crazy, or what?
One can try this: download an original D800 (a cheap camera) jpeg, turn it b/w, resize it to this Leica resolution and compare. Still eager to buy one?
Febs: Why are most of you guys so hostile in your comments? This is a tool for photography that nobody else dared to make.
...and fewer will dare to buy...
peevee1: In M10, they will replace the shutter with a lens cap. One less button and dial to deal with. A sensor with ISO 1 should be easy to produce.
lol, keep it going, mate! nice comments! i'd also suggest using magnesium powder and potassium nitrate for flash powder !
This is a clear victory of design over common sense
White balance presets?! Wow! Sooo cool! 2,5 inches 230000 dots lcd? That's sad...
R Butler: If you are experiencing problems with the samples gallery, try refreshing your page. The gallery is 'public.'
Hi! What about that ISO320 thing all over?
That's not fishing, that's hunting! :D Great shot!
