  • The Cactus V6II serves all these brands and a couple more.

  • I don't either. I regard the temporary tethering of the camera to a computer as a potential hazard and prefer to use the built-in card reader of my computer. Regarding USB3: Has anyone ever looked ...
  • You are too kind. I basically just wanted to rate the K-1 to express that it is a five-star camera for my personal needs (and for the price!). When I noticed that I ought to provide text as well ...
  • Correct, any brand that uses 5-axes sensor-based shake reduction (e.g., Pentax, Sony and Olympus) does not require special lenses with built-in stabilisation. However, I did not state anything to ...
  • Glad you found it useful. I tried to provide a balanced account and probably erred on the side of not going overboard with the praise. I feel that people already know that the sensor is excellent, ...
  • Created user review thread Pentax K-1 -- Thank You Pentax!
    Pentax always excelled in DSLR ergonomics but its latest APS-C cameras were so compact that bigger hands had difficulty to fit all fingers on the grip (in the absence of a battery grip). The K-1's ...

    Capture One already supports K-1 DNG and PEF raw files.

    Phase One could / should offer an alternative to the standard Pentax colour profile, but given that apparently they have even confirmed the...

    Try selecting the K-1 WiFi access point by selecting it in your Nexus system settings. I have to do the same on an iPad. On my Sony Android device, ImageSync is able to configure the WiFi...

    LV softness is not an issue for me in practice. You can magnify the LV up to 16x (just press a button and then use the back dial to zoom in). The image shown may not be crisp but you can easily see...

  • Wouldn't it be good if all cameras were subjected to the same standardised AF test (e.g., one involving a bicycle rider weaving in and out of the AF areas)? Not that I think the bicycle test is a...

  • Kubrick was a peerless master.

    Too bad, he did not finish "AI". Spielberg's realisation is not bad, but Kubrick's would have been breathtaking.

  • No, "just" HSS and PowerSync (aka "HyperSync") with manual power control.

    I received an update notification for this post, but don't see a new post. Strange.

    In any event, I don't understand why the fact that the so-called "four-way" controller is not acknowledged as...

  • In the comments section at http://www.venuslens.net you write that it has a PK mount only. Was that old information (from March)? If the lens has a PK-A mount, it can be used in Av mode, the camera ...
  • Thanks, that's awesome! I'll have a look where to get it from best. I'm based in New Zealand.

    How is it a "usability issue" when there is an easy way to address your concern?

    The AF mode button can be easily reached with the left hand from a natural lens holding position. Pressing it gives...

    Just press the "AF mode" button if you want to see the currently selected AF point(s) being highlighted.

    Keep it pressed, if you want to highlight it/them continuously.

    This is a non-issue.

  • Will the Pentax version of the lens have an "A setting"? I just checked the manufacturer's website and it seems the K-mount version is not available yet.
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @fatdeeman:
    When you press the AF-mode button, only the currently selected AF points will illuminate.

    This functionality addresses the concern raised by DPReview and Zenten4. Some may prefer...

    @Favorable Exponynt:
    Sure, the question is more one of supporting the fastest tethering possible.
