Re: Will Pentax make a camera like Panasonic GH4?

I dont know that it will be marginalized beyond exsistance, but it is true that there are many others who do look for the video capabilities when they choose thier DSLR. I still look at times on polls and such that seem to show that a moajority of Photo forums such as this one show that video ranges from a nice to have to a use R&D money elsewhere to get better stills. I never see video forums to see what they say in this subject but there must be such forums out there. To me, and this is my opinion, Photography is the focus, it has been the focus for years since the first film SLR's for Pentax, and I am happy that way. Video to me is a nice to have, sure the aperture changes in DSLR's is nice to use but I am usually just going to take a video of my vids on vacation or family things. They look good and people love them, but I am not trying to nor want to process Star Wars for it. M4/3 cams are ok but I want a photo....so I would never choose that. I looked at Olympus and moved on because of the high iso noise sucked. I think that all manufacturers are moving more to video and that is good for them, but I bought a camera to take pictures and stills, not videos.
