I consider myself as a hobbyist ever since owning a Powershot A560 when I was 13, 7 years ago. I haven't used my camera for a long time due to school, yet I would still shoot with my phone or a colleague's DSLR during school events. Recently, my phone's rear camera stopped working, and my old camera is now worn out (my brother used the camera for quite a long time), thus I'm looking for a new camera. I like to shoot in low light, thus sensor size is important. DOF also seem to be important....

Hi all, I'm going to Japan in a couple of months and will stay in Kyoto. I was thinking to buy a K-01 + 40mm kit (saw the prices on their site), but won't be able to move to Tokyo where they have a big shop. Do any of you have experience with the Kyoto Yodobashi shop (I think it's called Yodobashi Multimedia or something)? Are they well stocked? Do you think I should send a mail in advance? Is there any other good Pentax retailer in Kyoto? Thanks in advance.

I am looking for a second camera to fit in a jeans/ shorts pocket for pics of 3 year old and 3 month old (currently) out and about, and on vacations. Out of these two camera's what would you buy? I am coming from Pentax DSLR's and K-01 and shooting primes, which I will keep for other uses and when the situation calls. Here's my thoughts. Ricoh GR pro's: 1.) APS-C sensor matching the Pentax k-5, in your pocket 2.) snap focus seems like a great idea for my subjects. 3.) Great interface praised...

I have a Pentax k01 and a number of Pentax lenses. I am interested in getting the x-e2 but having a few doubts. There is a five hundred dollar difference between the x-e1, with 18-55 lens, and the x-e2. Is the 2  worth it? Also, the k-01 is a good camera and I was hoping someone might have experience with both and give me your thoughts. Thanks, jim

Have anybody used this combo? How good is it for indoor event shooting without flash? How fast and precise is the autofocus? I love my "brick" but want something much better than the kit zoom: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alex_virt/sets/72157639014313554/ --www.gridenko.comhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/alex_virt/

I never used Pentax K01 for video. For HD video I use my old Sony HX1. I have couple of manual Pentax lens, also automatic and zoom lens. I have tested K01 for video but found it complicated to shoot video with all these settings: exposure setting; framerate....etc Also this operational sound which is present in video I do not like at all. Please share your video setting experiance in good light and lets say in low light. What settings gives you the best image and sound quality without extra...

A few days ago I wanted to  see how my Q/Q7 performs in a studio environment with remotely triggered flashes. I used a simple wireless remote trigger for this that fits on a standard hotshoe and has only one contact at the bottom - the big middle one. Curiously enough neither the Q nor the Q7 could trigger the flashes with the hotshoe remote device. I of course tested it with other cameras - it performed flawlessly on a K-01, K5-II and even on a small Panasonic LX3 - no problems there. I...

My Pentax K-01 is the 'serious' camera I take with me everywhere. Though many hate it, and I acknowledge its flaws, I love the thing paired to my FA limited primes. The camera uses the 16MP sensor employed in everything from the Nikon D7000, through the Sony NEX-5 and Fujifilm X100. I have long assumed it's ISOless till ISO 800 based on what I've read about the D7000. However I know that implementations can change this.  Is there a simple way to check - without expensive equipment and...

So, over the weekend I got a K3 in the mail, and I want to love it, but I don't think I am maximizing what I can get out of it, and wanted to reach out to the community for help. So, first two things I wonder if I need to send it back, or send it to Pentax for a review: 1. My DA* 16-50 does not seem to want to play nice with the K3 - it keeps jumping in and out of focus, and does not let me fire. I have never had this issue on either my K10 or my K-01. Will fine tune AF fix this? 2. The...

Aside from weight would there be much difference between the k-01 with da 21mm lens vs the ricoh gr? I was thinking about the gr but saw a da21 for 295.00 on ebay and got it instead.
