  • I find it useful for a fill-in flash. Usual situation is to shoot a portrait or something close by with a bright background. Yes one could carry additional flash but ... Also on-board flash can ...
  • If the K-3 III does not have on-board flash and 4K video ... I seriously do not know if I stay with Pentax. K1 seems too big investment into new lenses. Since I have a lot of APSC lenses I would ...
  • Thank you ... beautiful indeed!! I would hope that K1 could do even better though. The clouds look a bit overexposed. Did you do it in RAW? Best, Marek
  • Beautiful images for sure! Good to know that the old glass performs so well! To me it looks like all the images have a slight pink/purple tint though. Maybe it is just my monitor ... Best, Marek
  • Finally!!

    I always check if my lenses are properly micro-adjusted by doing something similar by hand. Use contrast focus ... switch to phase focus and see if it refocuses (or other way around)....

  • To me it is easy to see ... horizontal lines, weird lighter, darker bands. Especially visible when looking at the whole picture .. not here: http://www.cyberphoto.se/bildexempel/k1/IMGP1014.JPG but ...
  • I hope that this is because of the firmware ... but do you see that at ISO 3200 and up there are weird bands there?? http://www.cyberphoto.se/bildexempel/k1/IMGP1015.JPG
  • I agree that it is not much worse than other FF, like Nikon D750 or maybe even D810. But I don't agree that it is not needed to have AF points to cover way more space. How about APS-C? If it was ...
  • The AF area is so small in FF... Cool features though ... Best, Marek
  • Incredible .. Stunning images!! Fantastic work ... Thanks for sharing! M
  • I don't think Pentax forced Nikon and Canon to discount their cameras. K-1 is for Pentax fans, even Ricoh said that ... It just shows you that K-1 is unfortunately quite expensive. And these ...
  • Thanks Falk! Yes, I understand that the color filters in-front of each pixel block light ... but my question was more whether the underlying technology is the same as the newest generation of ...
  • Interesting ... he shows the 1:1 crop mode! I thought that was mentioned somewhere else that it will not be available ... Marek
  • One thing I wanted to ask you ... do you know if current CMOS chips used in DSLRs are in a design close to this CMOS: http://www.hamamatsu.com/us/en/community/life_science_camera/product/search/C11 ...
  • Hard to know what the price difference would be to have 36MP that is on Nikon 810 .. but maybe it just leaves Pentax an option to release higher spec FF camera later (based on 42MP Sony chip). Best, ...
  • So are you saying that K-1 has a sensor that was introduced 4 years ago? I see that it is still one of the best sensors out there (based on DxOMark) ... this is interesting to see how little ...
  • The new camera is then well deserved!! I totally agree!! I'm in a different situation ... I have my K7 solely as a hobby. I would like to have a new camera but I just keep waiting for something a ...
  • And I happy to admit that they are better ... all I'm saying is ... does that REALLY matter? For what pictures ... who will notice? Does the OP NEED or WANT a new camera? Hey, I get it, we all have ...
  • Your major question to answer is ... "How are my pictures going to improve if I upgrade to K3 and does that really matter?" From your post .. it does not look like you can easily afford to spend ...
  • I would guess that they first update the low end APS-C ... because that would for sure not eat K-1 sales. And only later (end of year) update K-3II. Which I hope will have on-board flash again and ...
