Imager of: With 99% of photos being posted online now. I just don’t see the point of all this detail everyone is after. Just give me a good 12mp Camera.

well, many people that even not print large nor even print at all like this super resolution coz they are pixel peepers. So they feel better or satisfied when they zoom in and see a lot of detail, even if the scene, composition or shot itself doesnt say much. I'm not bashing pentax ps, in fact i own a k3II and like to use ps if the subject allows to, eg a city scape, an "still" landscape, macro, buildings the results are amazing in terms of resolution but also adds dynamic range. I can't imagine the level of detail and dr the K1 ps files have, must be mind blowing.

Happily will wait for the pentax k3ii succesor, if it arrives in a year or two otherwise i would look for a k1 ii. To me, is enough and really enjoy my k3ii. Don't feel the need to switch to mirrorles so far.

HowaboutRAW: quiquae:

I was glad enough to learn that more RAM means more power usage. I'd thought power was more about the the fan, the screen and the CPU+GPU, not really RAM.

Ram needs power to hold and keep data as is a volatile storage, however it's power consuption is very small compared to other system devices.

Currently imho experience depends more in lot of other factors than just having the most powerful cpu. Ssd, screen quality, keyboard distribution, heat generation, battery duration, build quality and a good gpu at least. If the cpu is the most powerful ever built (until next quarter) adds almost nothing, just marketing.

dpfan32: Today's entrepreneur developing awesome products only for one reason:
To sell their company one day to a big multicorporate enterprise ....
Is this how free market and capitalism works today?
Very sad that the big boys getting it all. Sick world ....

I would say they are doing the best they can, things didn't went as they expected...

Zvonimir Tosic: To achieve that, the SR mechanism inside that camera must be so beefed up, so complicated, that there must some severe penance elsewhere. Such SR can never be completely shut off, even in power-saving mode it consumes a lot of power. What's the battery life like in K1-II?

i never ever reached 2500 shots with a single charge, anyway, to me the battery life is enough. The only problem is that it takes quite a lot of time to charge, like 4-5 hours, my friends D7200 battery charges in around 2hours thats why i have two batteries ( originals )

@Zvonimir Tosic, sorry, i find SR pretty useful in many situations. With your same reasoning all lens manufacturers should get rid of optical stabilization too. And by the way, you can turn off SR.

You can always carry an extra battery. It would be cool if they release a faster load battery plus extra charge backwards compatible with current ones.

Thanks for the news, now us pretty clear that and upgraded k1 is exactly the same than getting the mark II. Will be interesting to see the improvements when you have the chance to test it. It would be great if you can dedicate some time for the astrotracer too.

Fotoni: Maybe they have fixed those shutter speed problems which can cause blurry photos? I also want electronic shutter timelapse mode and automatic bracketing combined with pixel shifting. Those software features should have been in K-1 because K-1 is a specialized camera with lower price tag. Canon is still at the top with its firmware because they can run scripts via community hack. Pentax cameras could introduce more open firmware which allow scripts without hacking to beat Canon in this area.

i do agree that allowing to add firmware improvements by the community or custom software modules to the camera could be the thing that makes a difference and even speed up development efforts.

I would love to try k1 for astro and nightscapes, astrotracer is an amazing feature totally misrated and poorly reviewed.

In reply to:

PhozoKozmos: it would interest me more
to see if Canon will offer higher color fidelity handheld "rgbg" recording with smarter use of their electronic image stabilization technology
where:
1) image sensor is fixed (of course)
2) uses users handheld motion to record from fixed points in optical fov: one red, one green (doubled), 1 blue (in any order, of course, just once; toss all excessive duplicates, if any): single exposure
3) it adjust according to users chosen lens FL (with its unique aov per pixel)
4) since it need not rely on "mechanical" pixel-shifting, there is never any "incomplete" pixel shifts per se
5) impossible to not accidentally cover all 3 cfa colors (rgb) during handheld shots
6) it adjusts also to user chosen shutterspeeds to do the full rgb cfa "sampling"

it is a more sophisticated version of pan-scan (panorama) where pixels are typical read only once per rgbg cfa

could extend it to full rgb panorama-stills-scans, too
in any direction
not just fixed pov regular stills

How does this relates to the topic of the note?

snimcho: I don't understand, is it just a firmware update or there is a hardware upgrade too?

@Esstee i wonder if it's just a mainboard change or the K1II has other upgraded parts that the K1 does not. I mean, other improved components that are not switched when the mainboard is upgraded or that motherboard upgrade will convert it into a K1II. Maybe i have misread something but i haven't seen that particular aspect clarified. As a K3II owner i would be happy if i could send my K3II for a mainboard upgrade to get improvements, of course this is not the case...

AbrasiveReducer: Hand-held pixel shift would solve the problem of the camera moving but what solves the problem of the subject moving? Maybe "anti-ghosting" software like what's used in HDR apps?

@Tan68 yeah, TOTALLY agree with that

cirtapfotos: Dear Pentax..a good ol Firmware Update was only needed..since u decided to keep an Five Year Old Sony 36mp Sensor.

they should ask you for directions to take next time!

Imager of: Wow. Being able to shoot at 819,000 iso is insane. Can’t wait to do that. And then add 1080p video and 4.4 FPS is quite a feat. Same af system too. Thanks so much Pentax. You got us all very excited.

@CarlosMP
i know...
