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.

In dpreview's X-M1 review, they say: While Fujifilm offers two choices for how quickly the camera starts up (found in the Power Management menu), we found no appreciable difference in startup speed. The X-M1 starts up in just under one second. If the camera has gone into power saving mode, you must hold the shutter release down for a second to wake it up, which is too long in our opinion. ... Shot-to-shot speeds hung around the 1.1 second mark, regardless of the image quality setting. The...

I love the idea of a small FF system, and will get the A7 with 35mmf2.8. But I don't need a small system every time I pick up the camera. I am having a new baby this winter, which probably means I am going to be hunkered down for a few months changing diapers and taking pictures (not together), so I am looking for a fast lens for indoor kid shots in some less than perfect lighting. Because it's in my house, I don't care about size of lenses. What would you get, the 55f1.8, or would you go...

Hi again... :-), In my experience the K01 decides what to focus on, in a variable way. Is this normal and is there a setting to use a fixed focus point in auto/green mode ? In Av or Tv or other modes i can choose what kind of focus point and it's even possible to place the focus point, fixed, off-centre on the display etc.. But ... NOT in AUTO/GREEN mode, in my experience, or.... am i overlooking something ???? Please advise and thanks in advance. --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2,...

Hi everybody, When i put my K01 in Av mode, with AF/s, and i move the cam i hear, at about every move, a klicking-like sound. In finding out how come i looked into the lens and think i saw the diaphragma opening and closing every time i point and something else. This is done automatically by the cam: i'm leaving all buttons free. Is this a standard 'thing' or else ? Hope somebody here knows the answer and thanks in advance. :-) --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2, GF2+14042X & LBA).
