  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I agree that this is a somewhat annoying behavior of Pentax cameras. As it is now, the AF point only flashes to indicate that focus has been achieved, but this creates unnecessary redundancy, as we...

    Thanks Gio, I got to thinking that my post may have been a bit harsh and it's good to hear that others are having some success. I guess it really boils down to what you are trying to achieve, and...

    They're high quality primes (with one zoom exception), great image rendition, sharp, contrasty, all metal build, some have DoF scales. They are designed with an emphasis on compactness, so they...

    @peterpainter "P!$$ OFF"? "My Pentax beat up your ________"? "It's not the size of the lens, it's the motion of the sensor"?

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    A while back I read that Pentax did something that deviated from Adobe's specs for the DNG format when it comes to pixel shift files. It may not be possible for Adobe to update DNG to accommodate...

    This is a case of the "telephone game". The Sony a900 was the first FF to offer IBIS, the K-1 is the first to offer it on 5 axes. Originally it was reported correctly, but over time the media has...

    Let's hope that is something they add via firmware update, and traditionally, they have been pretty good about doing that.

    Stabilized lenses make me a little sea-sick, but each system has it's own pros and cons. I don't need to see that the image is stabilized, just like I don't need 10 billion dots on my screen. What...

    Keith you're right that civilian GPS is intentionally inaccurate to hide the exact position of the satellite, but apparently it's accurate enough for a 5 minute exposure. This is like the 8th...

    There's one thing that worries me about this feature. In order for the light to come on, obviously the camera has to be on, but if the sensor is on then the charge may attract dust. I also had the...

    There was something I heard mentioned one time, in one Pentax press release, and in true Pentax marketing fashion, I haven't hear is since. They said that the funky screen mechanism keeps the...

    Pentax does need to step up their pro services game. I'm considering buying the K-1 from Canada even thought I live in the Continental US because I've read a lot of complaints about Precision, the...

    There is a saving grace for the Pentax system, but ironically it is not of their making. The Cactus V6 system (with the optional RF60 flash units) very neatly addresses many of the shortcomings of...

    I've been a Pentax shooter my entire photographic career, and probably 80%+ of my work involves flash, so I feel fairly qualified to answer this. I hate to say it, but Pentax is lousy at flash,...

    @nicolaiecostel For medium format shooters, having more than one AF point is a luxury. And subject tracking, what is that? No, for MF shooters image quality is the only concern, and in that respect...

    Alex, that is a popularly held misconception. The original Canon 1D had a focal plane sync speed of 1/500th, but you could sync up to 1/16000 with it's electronic shutter. It's not that it's...

    Pentax lenses tend to be lighter than their C/N counterparts though thanks to the in-body stabilization. If you've never held a Pentax camera with a lens attached, they tend to balance beautifully...

    It's funny, you say that as if it's a bad thing, yet that is precisely what I look for in a camera. Big for my big hands, heavy to counterbalance my old heavy lenses I attach, and a flappy mirror...
