On article Pentax K-3 Mark III initial review (881 comments in total)

Having a Apsc range of lenses that are reliable and comfortable to use already I won't be waiting very long to get the K3 III. The improvements in this camera will make a it an attractive camera for me to work with action oriented photography when time permits.

On article Some versions of Capture One are now more expensive (188 comments in total)

I'll upgrade when the time is right. I was very pleased with the improvement in vers 20, Notice a lot of software companies are pushing to me to buy upgrades. There's a serious economic struggle going on in the creative branches their struggling to keep afloat especially for more niche conpanies. Photography is hit hit hard the the lockdowns.

Beautiful work. Enjoyed viewing. Can see there was a big effort to get out to the sites and wonderful use of compositing.

I like the idea of the paint making the camera more grippy.. The orange colour could save your life in traffic.....Visibility thing.. I'm making do with my GXR and m mount for now. But if I had the choice between the GR iii standard addition or the street addition I'd definitely take this one. The viewfinder better have the right etchings for 28mm though..

What great news. I'm APS-C all the way right now. So have a great setup already. Just having bought the HD 21mm ltd after my old version became faulty. I had a short moment of buyers remorse, as the new version DFA could be an attractive option. But being larger and heavier to suit FF and likely a faster aperture being a drawback. For FF users though it will be a great option. Like the news of a new 16-50 zoom and will likely be an early adopter as I was with the 11-18 UW. Good solid quality lens with with the new offering here they will make a lovely set. Future looks bright from my viewpoint in the camera world.

solarider: I like the images - nice shooting. I'm glad the day had some good light for you.
Interesting that most of the shots are at 200 ISO and a small number at 100 or more at 400.. Even with SR you weren't able to get more at 100 iso?
thank you for the very nice pics. You have a beautiful city, esp. when it's sunny ;-)

I'll take improved DR over iso 100 especielly on bright sunny days

Will Sukmiof, your attitude stinks.

JensR: I'm glad we get a modern weatherproof superwide zoom with a filter thread, but DA* 11-18, DA* 16-50, DA* 50-135 = three different filter sizes is not ideal.

HasselbladH460 the DA* line of lens is water resistant and dust resistant, that is the top of the line specification from any maker..

tassienick: Oh Pentax...

If this had been releasead when I used a K20D 11 years ago (when everyone was asking for a DA* version of the Tokina 11-16/f2.8) it might have convinced me to stay in the system.

There's late to the party, and then there's this :/

Dear tassienick. The lens is released now and sits on a modern KP, so for most people thats the important thing. Glad you moved on there is more room in here now your gone.

In reply to:

ZilverHaylide: No matter how good this lens may be, there are two incontrovertible facts: the Pentax user base (over which product development costs must be amortized) is shrinking, and mirrorless has considerable benefits for most users. Pentax needs to go mirrorless, and it needs to be via one of the existing mounts, the world doesn't need yet another one. If not a mirrorless K, then Pentax needs to either license Z, R, X, or E, or join the L-mount alliance.

I think it's okay thay Pentax has the OVF and are not mirroless. Paticularily the OVF in the KP is top notch.

falconeyes: Amazing how the scaffolding survived. Even the collapse of the middle tower.
And good the wooden roof framework was isolated from the rest of the cathedral by the re-enforced stone vault. Which survived too to a large degree.

They knew what they did some hundred years ago ...

This is a epic event if there was one. Not so easy to rebuild in any authentic way as access to raw materials with the same specs is difficult, especielly oak wood. No it will never be rebuilt satisfactorily an irretrievable loss.

Verto: Not sure why everyone is complaining. If you don’t want IS, turn it off. If you want a viewfinder and a larger battery buy a larger camera. I mean the thing is 287 grams, and fits in your pocket. Let’s hope the lens is sharp wide open and the sensor has great dynamic range.

Still uses less power than if it's working to reduce shake than when it is just maintaining the sensor neutral position.

D7000ShooterUK: Sounds great apart from the battery life. Now could be a good time to get a mint used RICOH GR II.

My thinking is a a battery pack would be useful the the phone as well, so why not have one that can also be used with the camera. I have 4 batteries for my GXR and 4 batteries for my GR and 3 for the DSLR. So one battery pack could be a nice addition to the setup where phone and 2 or 3 diffirent cameras could benefit from it. Batteries are light and portable. Additionally Time lapse would be a problem with only 200 shots so a battery pack might be a work around in that situation as well.

The shake reduction has to be able to be turned off if you use the camera on a tripod or monopod it causes blur in other cameras with shake reduction. Shake reduction also causes issues with motion panning.

I'll likely just charge the battery in camera in the field from a battery pack at home with a usb c charger.

(unknown member): Long long time ago, I had a Canon IXUS i (quite cute btw). It was always in my pocket jeans. The GR III can be a “replacement” for that. Nothing against of smartphones photography, but sorry there is a huge difference with a camera and a smartphone. For what I’ve seen (GR II and initial reviews GR III), the B&W are great, but I’m not convinced (everybody should complain here, me too!) with the Ricoh “colors”. Maybe, I should try myself and see it.

Nothing wrong with the GR/GR II colors, you can tweak in camera or in a raw processor.

Bashir Lunat: I think Ricoh should make something similar to the excellent GXR modular. I think they can.

Just go on Ebay and get a GXR they are still available.

Tord S Eriksson: I loved the news till I saw the number of shots you can take before a recharge is needed, quite abysmal.

So I'll soldier on with my old dust-sucking GR.

But it seems it could become a find used!

I've thought about the battery issue, and hey it's a non issue because batteries are small and I can have a handfull of them stashed in a a small case in a pocket if needed. My usage is around 80 shots on a day to day basis, on holidays maybe 200 but I usually have a Dslr as well

I'm looking at the Monochrom typ 246. This is interesting me, and comparing this with the recently released Phase one back it's more discreet for street and easier to carry for hiking. V-e-r-y I-n-t-e-r-e-s-t-e-d.
