WastingTime: I am a photographer and I find this funny. But if anyone wants to remain attached to some old camera you can sell all your furniture and start buying broken stuff on eBay just to prevent that it ends in the trash.

IT'S JUST AN OLD CAMERA, MILLIONS WERE MADE, SOME END UP IN THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN, SOME ARE IN USE, SOME ARE BEING CRUSHED, SOME WERE PROBABLY USED TO KILL SOMEONE.

Crushing an old camera is not vandalism dude. Comparing an old camera to a human being is not very sane either.

That's it! I'm kickstarting my next dinner! I'll trap the food smell on ziplock bags to give as reward!

'We’ve made it part of our mission to ensure our photos are real.'

A never ending debate. What is a real photo anyway? Are Black and White photos real?
what about if I move a slider to make that water a little more turquoise?

WastingTime: the oculus and vive experience still seems to demand a lot of money for a somewhat complicated setup. We need a high quality VR viewer that doesn't need to be attached to a pc somewhere. The PC should be the size of a cell phone so you can put it in the headset already.

Are you kidding? yo deleted my first sentence where I clearly say OCULUS and VIVE, which are the ones that provide the most immersive experience, close to what true VR is supposed to be like. You won't get that kind of power from current phones in front of your eyes.

I'm aware that there is VR gear that works with the phone. But not Oculus or the HTC Vive, those need to be hooked to a computer, with a cable. They even sell the computers on their website, I don't know what's funny about that.

Azathothh: Sigma is poop.

I know, we must all use Zeiss glass otherwise our photography wont be good enough. Sigma lenses lack "Character".

What lighting are they using to keep the painting evenly illuminated, or the camera does that too? This intrigues me, as a photographer that has shot art before, paintings can and will be difficult. Specular highlights on the shiny oil strokes are not impossible, but hard to control, and sometimes this means changing the light setup for each painting.

How does this camera solves that?

On article Keeping the faith: Pentax K-1 video overview (102 comments in total)
In reply to:

zzzxtreme: Will there be a smaller version (with same sensor but mirrorless and less features) somewhat?

Sensor aside, this is about the physics of the lens, since they do not resolve such fine details like those than a 100 mp sensor can capture, they were not designed to do so. Therefore, it has nothing to do with the size of the sensor. You'll get a 100 mp file, but the image will be soft when looked at 100%. Post-capture sharpening might help a little, but new lenses would help a lot. Even Phase One has replaced most of the original Schneider lenses with new ones that have improved resolution.

While you could use the lenses for the 645Z, I don't believe that the resolving power of those lenses will reach to 100 MP. MTF charts are out there, somewhere.

But what about the Noise levels at high ISO?

magneto shot: pentax should apologize to sigma for creating lens for their mount and not updating them when releasing the body differently that what sigma has.

LMAO Are you drunk-whining again magneto shot?

WastingTime: Can someone explain the ISO invariance thing like I'm a two-year old? I mean, I understand what they are doing, but I keep seeing that the high iso files are better than the digitally corrected file, so what's the point on using this method instead of just increasing the ISO?

I see the light now! (literally)
