On article Nico360 to be 'world's smallest' 360-degree camera (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sactojim: Sorry, Kodak 360 beat everyone to the punch. So this new startup company is trolling for money for a product that is already entrenched? Sounds like a good way to lose money.

I recently bought the Ricoh Theta S. The photos are very good quality, even in very low light. The video is very low quality. The download through wifi is extremely slow. But it is a ton of fun, so any 360 would be good if you like that sort of stuff like I do.

Edgar_in_Indy: A few of the world's best kept secrets: The formula for Coca-Cola, KFC’s 11 Herbs and Spices, and, of course, the Pentax 645z's DxOMark score...

...but hey, we mustn't waste any time before trumpeting the Canon EOS 1D X II scores!

Don't feed the troll=Juck.

Auricom: Can I make one myself and save the cost of buying one like this one?

You can make a camera and lens yourself, too, while you're at it.

RidgeRunner22: I want do a weeklong fishing /photography trip in the Wind River Range. To cover any respectable amount of ground up there you need to keep your load light or hire a pack team which will limit what routes you take. I think I might have to try rent one of these😈

@BigOne I also love watercolor landscapes!

Kumsa: Longtime user of ASP since Bibble-cal times (just could not resist). ASP3 finally, finally, does a good job with recovering highlight detail. Tried it out on a tough image, last night. That's really been the only RAW feature that I coveted in other processors.

It does a very good job, and is fast. Nice to see that they are keeping with their updates.

Highlight recovery is the reason I switched to LR. I, too, was an Old-testament Bibble user.

I'll give this version a shot and see if it's usable for my style.

In reply to:

kineticdg: I have to say I'm a little disappointed in this post. Haven't we said for years that it's not the camera that matters, it's the photographer? Couldn't you find a single photographer who was cut in half for this show? Oh well, maybe next year.

Thanks for the laugh.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2660 comments in total)
In reply to:

zlatko: The rear screen looks way too complicated, but the camera looks very impressive overall. It looks like the boss, and it's competitively priced. That pentaprism reminds me of the pentaprism on my 1960's Pentax SLR. Very nice touch.

It does look complicated, but it's also very rugged.

In reply to:

jaxson: Is there real sensor shift stabilisation during video mode on this camera?
Or does it have 'Movie SR' again?

Pentax doesn't care for video users. You should probably look elsewhere.

In reply to:

Nuno Souto: Well done, Pentax/Ricoh. Good to see some REAL technical progress in the dslr field, instead of the usual Canikon shake-rinse-and-repeat.

5-axis sensor shift for handheld super resolution mode is quite impressive (well, we'll have to wait to see how good it actually is).

In reply to:

LightBug: When I travel to scenic places, I take my Pentax DSLR with 21mm and 15mm DA limited lenses with me. Ricoh GR or GR II with wide-angle converter is on my list to replace the DSLR set in even smaller form-factor.

The DA 15mm L is also my favorite travel lens.

In reply to:

Frank_BR: It's amazing that some of these images show obvious banding even without any pushing. However, people made a mountain out of a molehill because very unusual (extreme contrast and underexposure) Sony RAW images could show artifacts when pushed 6EV.

Wow. Very noticeable banding @ISO 160 on the leftmost woman's face. That's bad.

Rooru S: Sony A99 LCD tilting-rotating screen is better. Why make something so complicated just to make it different?

Have you seen the Pentax mechanism work in person? How can you even compare them? How are you even sure this is the final design?

robbo d: Bizarre Pentax way releasing such a headline product .... I guess it's creating talk.
wifi .... tick
Artic screen .... never thought id say it .... tick
Sony FF sensor .... tick
either 36 / 42 with rumour of pixel binning to 24mp and pixel shift as well ? could be a very very versatile unit. Combo of a K-S2 and K3 but with some serious steroids, I like it !!!
Timing will be good for me .... but the question is ... whether to be an early adopter or not ??

Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC!

So, you've actually used this camera and seen how the hinges work? No? I thought so. Please, stop trolling and get a life.

So, it will have WiFi, GPS and NFC! That's awesome!

Prixnobeldefoot: It looks horrible, all plasticy, I seriously hope it's a dummy. And why is there a HDR and crop function on the wheel? Who are they aiming that camera for ? Also weird the ISO on the wheel when there s already a dedicated ISO button !

Why even question something if there's no way to know the answer to? If you wait 4 months, all your doubts will be answered.

Tom Caldwell: I wish Pentax well, for all my comments. But I am looking for a home for all my Canon EF lense and this is not it. Maybe if I had a shelf of PK lenses I might get slightly enthusiastic. But I haven't.

I can adapt my EF lenses to either Sony E/FE or M4/3 of which M4/3 seems to be the one that gives me the best dslr-like AF performance.

Adapt to PK? You must be kidding - I am trying to get out of the dslr body munch machine - not perpetuate it.

Adapt PK lenses to a mirrorless body? Yes if you are into MF basically for the earlier less automated kind.

Therefore this camera is simply wet dreams for those left with a cupboard full of PK lenses.

Or for those who appreciate the awesome value and features that Pentax always brings to the table.

JackM: First! Way to go Pentax! Looks good, I like the dials. Tempting, as I have 3 nice SMC-M primes left over from my film days.

I just hope it gets the most out of my 31mm L.
