Re: How important is video in your DSLR ?

I am sure that Pentax will not completely abandon video from any DSLR, but maybe Pentaxians are more interested in stills with video as is is just ok. Of course, the poll is a very small sampling of what others have posted but for the most part, we seem to be photographers more so than videographers. Again, if I was looking for a DSLR with better video, I would probably choose Canon but, what I look for is low light high iso shots and Canon fails miserably in that regard, at least in my perception.

I am happy being with Pentax for what it is. I would rather be focused on one area rather than trying to be all things to all people and they don't have the resources to do that. There are a lot of things they are trying to do right and the fact that they are simply adequate in video is fine with me. Sure the K-3 is still not a true video camera, but it is much much better than Pentax ever improved upon up to that point. I think Pentax is doing fine and the Ricoh income statements seem to show that they are going in the right direction, maybe just slower than most would like.
