  • I wonder if it even gets released this year. Seems like there is quite little information or leaks about the final specs. Either they are going to suddenly release it right in time for Christmas ...
  • Replied in Software
    Also, the best smartphones do automatic frame stacking (for example Google's HDR+). The Pixels also offer "dual exposure" control where you can set exposure values for shadows and highlights ...
  • I wish camera companies would invest in sotware rather than developing more megapixels. Only a small minority would benefit in reality, and they can just buy a damn medium format camera and stop ...
  • My thoughts exactly.
  • You're right, However, for practical purposes the net result is te same- ie. you can view your jpeg on any device with more or less similar results while the way your RAW file "looks" will depend ...
  • That's a technicality, but for practical purposes a jpeg file is ready to be viewed by any image viewer software or printed and has a certain "look" built in- ie. all the curves applied, white ...
  • The RAW file is simply data from the sensor. It is not an image that is ready to be displayed. If you "see" a RAW image, you're actually seeing a jpeg preview created by software from the RAW ...
  • Honestly I'm satisfied by the performance of my KP. If there is something I would really like improved, it's definitely video (focus peaking during capture, some LOG mode, better codec, mic input) ...
  • I like the first one, well done
  • Seeing how long it takes to develop the new APSC flagship, chances of a new FF are rather slim.
  • Not great. The highlights in these pictures look quite bad, overall many higher-end smartphones give much better quality.

  • The sweet spot of Pentax is a compact, well-built DSLR with excellent controls (like the KP for example) and small, fast, 3d-pop primes with "character". And reasonable prices. I understand why ...
  • Replied in ETTR Poll
    That's quite a weird choice of answers. Definitely reflected by the fact that almost half of the people used the "some combination" answer. I guess a lot of people simply expose for their subject, ...
  • I'm afraid that dynamic range won't be improved too much. I haven't noticed much improvement in this regard moving from K5iis to KP. Improved live view is something we can hope for. Generally focus ...
  • Created discussion thread New APS-C Flagship. What do you think?
    So... We all watched the video from Pentax. I'm curious what other Pentaxians think about the upcoming flagship. My thoughts: 1. Better OVF. Nice, that's definitely a welcome feature. We know it's ...
  • I used the Tamron 70-200 and on the K1 it does seem to force it into crop mode. There is some image quality loss but not horrible. I think I found some reviews where  they tested the sharpness with ...
  • It's probably going to be a good camera. I like the addition of AF joystick. Really I'm ok with the speed and accuracy of Autofocus on my Pentax cameras but focus point selection with buttons is a...

  • That is very relative. I agree that if a camera has great specs it doesn't make sense to upgrade too often. The GR for example is pretty much class-leading and should hold it's ground against ...
  • Yeah but my 2011 Olympus e-p3 live view AF is like 7 times faster than Pentax live-view AF.. Live view AF in Pentax is not just slow, it's VERY slow.. Re: video tech: it doesn't have to be on par ...
  • They probably won't make it as good as the best mirrorless but simply expanding the live view capability and video capability would be very welcome for me. I can't understand why I have focus ...
