Nope. 2 cameras would be for recording 3D photos.

In reply to:

Gonard: How does the Nextbit Robin compare to the Amazon Fire? Amazon offers unlimited storage of picture and video files. Fire cost $199 when they where available. But you got one year of Amazon Prime - a $99 value - thus making the phone price $100. The Fire has a 13 mp camera, HDR , good panorama, etc.

Is the Fire phone out of production and canned?

Square cornered? Poor for holding for a while. And apple will sue them over the button position and design at the bottom center.

Hakim79: Magnesium alloy !?

hmm don't think so ...

Full Metal is heavy. Engineering plastics are very durable.

Richard Murdey: "Pentax planned to release a FF dSLR in 2001, they even had it on display. Then they killed it. Then they released medium format cameras. Then they released the K-1".

It would have been nice if you'd managed to flesh that out a little with something we didn't know. Why was the K-1 delayed? How long was the K-1 in development. What changes did it go through? What were the major challenges?

Nikon gave an interesting behind the scenes look at the Df development back when it came out (to dcwatch iirc), so there is a precedent...

Did you read ? It said the IQ was lousy that's why it was killed.

MattSolo: They should've offered this for FF. Could've been a hell of a lens. 100 1.8 I want that.

Would be very expensive and very heavy.

ttran88: Thank goodness Sigma rejected Canon's offer. None of these would have been made by conservative Canon.

I'm sure sigma is a bigger and more profitable company than the camera division of Pentax. Ricoh bought the name of Pentax essentially.

Oliver KMIA: I personally find it boring as most of the latest Canon camera. Not saying it's a bad camera, it will probably do the job perfectly with the usual canon reliability. Here are my reasons:

1. The new 18-135 lens: i like the module idea but what is the Canon strategy in video after STM ? Now back to USM?
2. Dynamic range is a big problem with Canon. I hope this cam will see a major improvement (catching up I should say). Of course I can still deliver with Canon body but Id' like to have Sony's sensor DR, well, because it's there.
3. No 4K & very poor video features: I do a lot of video with my camera and buying a $$$ cam is out of question because of budget and more portability ! The smaller the better, I love my GH4 for video except the poor performance past 800 ISO. We finally got 1080/60p with AF... but still no peaking and zebra
One of my 4k video https://vimeo.com/149983814
4. Overall, considering the limited progress over the previous generation, I can't justify the update price

You in the usa? If so lemon law is 3 repairs due to manufacturing defects in rhe 1st year and you are owed a new unit.

In reply to:

krectus: Pretty shocked that a DSLR released in 2016 can't shoot 4k. Especially a camera aimed at videographers (with it's own special video zooming device!). Surely Canon, who seems to need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 4K world has a reason to not do this. The camera is capable, it's a big selling feature if they did? Why?! Why wouldn't they do this!?! It's 2016. Every smartphone released this year can do it. It really bothers me, I can't figure this out.

Dpr has stated they haven't seen a smartphone with 4k that records 4k in a quality matter that ends up with more actual resolution than just recording 1080 to begin with.

Sort of like jamming now 22mp into a tiny smartphone sensor with a lens that is constantly scratched from coins and wallets and everything else on people's pockets along with lint. You'll. Get a good 5mp out if a big 22mp file.

Bigger files but actual recorded resolution hardly increases.

Shame on Canon if they don't put this in their next M mirrorless camera.

Shame on you for something you haven't yet done tomorrow. Why so damn negative?

It's unfortunate to see such a technically flawed photo win. Out of focus, pattern noise from extreme shadow lifting. Good story but not good to call photo of the year unless everyone with an iPhone is a potential press photographer of the year.

Stop dropping your lens

Taken on an iPhone and greatly push the shadows ? Pattern noise big time. No wonder it was clicked over to b&w. Very front focused. Can't see this as the winner being so technically flawed no matter the story. This is the demise of photographers in press positions. Now it's anyone with an iPhone.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (651 comments in total)
In reply to:

LF Photography: So we basically have a D810 here, but with better weather-sealing, more rugged body, Best IBIS on the market with 5 stops of SR, Built in GPS with the ability to track stars, Built in WiFi, AA Filter simulator, Pixel Shift Resolution mode which will likely make the images taken with it rival MF quality, and all for $1800. Pentax also announced the holy trinity of f2.8 lenses before releasing the body, unlike some other manufacturers who shall remain nameless.
In case you weren't convinced, just imagine the name plate says Nikon/Canon and imagine the madness that would ensue..

Excellent work Pentax!

It's Ricoh now just using the Pentax name.

Flashback: Pentax now joins Nikon and Canon, in defiantly ignoring the mirrorless movement. I think we know where we stand now.

Who is the "we" you are speaking for ?
