rondom: I have a scarier script for the makers of this silly movie: it is about a middle aged guy who spends 18 hours a day at and he only talks about equivalent aperture, dynamic range, and sensor size.

That's something I can relate to! Scary!

On article Report: Ricoh announcing cost cuts in face of crisis (326 comments in total)
In reply to:

DPPMetro: Only in Pentax land can it get worse and worse and the Pentaxians, some of whom are almost certainly employees, will claim it's actually getting better.

The Pentax forum is even claiming the company is selling almost as much as Nikon (and that's not a joke!).

It's actually sad and wish Pentax keeps on chugging along. They offer exactly what I need, and 'am finding it difficult changing to another maker.

Barry Goyette: I'm Sorry, but that was not a demonstration of the technology. It was an illustration of the technology, or perhaps a description of it. Those chain-link fences were simple overlays, that they then removed, at the precise moment he says "in the future".

@Barry, heres a demonstration of the tech.

In reply to:

Tatouzou: I had not seen the challenge before today.
It is announced as full.
Is there any possibility that the number of admission might be risen?

I'm sorry, Tatouzou. I'm afraid I can't do that.

In reply to:

J J Thaddeus: The Rules include the following: "Images with at least 1200 px on the long side"

You do mean "Images with at most 1200 px on the long side" or is there no limit to the size on the long side? Just asking for clarification. Thank you.

At least, means ">= 1200".

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.

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

In reply to:

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!

In reply to:

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 (2673 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.

In reply to:

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!
