photographic applications of industrial use, in common sense.

ogl: Is there RAW?

By the way, my friend had used P&S camera with RAW and results were better than in-camera JPEG. Not RAW converted from DSLR, but good. Looks like scanned film. And it's real to tweak WB, sharpness and exposure.

ogl: Buy K-1 without NR in RAW. It's easy decision. K-1 will be on market till the fall of 2018. K-1II is just minor upgrade of K-1. Lets wait for new FF camera in 2019.

We have K-1 150 USD cheaper

In reply to:

yiangelo: I completely disagree with the image quality assessment. I downloaded the RAW files at ISO 12800 and ISO 1600 for the K-1 and K-1 MkII and ran them both through Adobe Camera Raw at default settings, no sharpening, etc. and saved as 16 bit TIF files.
Ignoring the fact that a completely different lens was used, the output from the K-1 Mk2 is cleaner while still retaining the same amount of detail.
They key thing is that after equalizing the contrast and brightness, I prefer the K-1 Mk2 images because there is a lot less false color moire with equivalent detail in fine black and white areas.
Once you apply some tasteful color NR to eliminate the false color to both images and a bit of sharpening, the images can easily be made to look identical, with a very slight edge going to the K-1 Mk2 again.

So, in conclusion (and I use that term with plenty of sarcasm here), the K-1 Mk2 is an incremental upgrade for RAW shooters with slightly but noticeably improved AF as well, as advertised.

If you can make the images identical with rather long tweaks, no need to buy K-1II at all....:) It's easy to use K-1 for RAW shooters. Anyway, ACR and 16 bit TIFF are not the best way to convert. No any sense in your TIFF and 16 bit, if you have 8 or 10-bit monitor. And ACR is not good tool for K-1's RAW. IMO.

left eye: If you've bought a K-1 mkII, can you pay for the accelerator to be removed?

...I'm mean seriously, otherwise there's going to be a lot of returned cameras in the next weeks.... or a firmware announcement tomorrow that disables the raw NR - that would be ideal.

There are real problems with RAW's files details at all ISO, but if the difference between K-1 and K-1II at ISO100-400 is not high, but higher than ISO400 is serious. Anyway, it's not pleasant if you are RAW shooter to see the loss of details at your photos...And if you had been using Pentax cameras without AA filter for a long it's not comfortable to see the photos from expensive FF camera with losing details....

I see that Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution mode really works. And not bad.

ogl: The mirrorless lenses (from wide angle till standard focal range ) without in-camera correction have absolutely awful distortion and vignetting.

I use ONLY RAW from 2005 year.

ogl: The statistics says that MILCs are falling like DSLR. The many forecasts that MILCs would change DSLR was wrong. Photo market is shrinking step by step.
We can compare the shipments in January-February 2018 to those in January-February 2017 of CIPA data.

- All digital cameras: -27.4% in units and -9.1% in ¥

- Digital cameras with built-in lens: -40% in units and -32.2% in ¥
- Interchangeable lens cameras: -12.4% in units and -0,02% in ¥

- DSLRs: -8.3% in units and -4.4% in ¥
- MILCs: -9.3% in units and +6.9% in ¥

- Interchangeable lenses: -3.8% in units and +4.2% in ¥

- Lenses for 24x36 and larger format sensors: +13% in units and +13.2% in ¥
- Lenses for sensors smaller than 24x36: -9.8% in units and -5.8% in ¥.

There is nothing there to be happy about.

My main idea is simple - photo market will be smaller and smaller. Don't care -- MILCs or DSLRs. The advanced amateurs and professional only will use photo cameras...But the number of such users will be lower and lower every year. I didn't say anything about dying of photo cameras. They will be alive for a long time like vinyl. :)

Show marginal persons, invalids, alcoholics, hobos, orphans and the worst, neglected areas and you will be the famous... I was in Pskov many times, my friend - the priest lives here and I would say it's well-attended town...There is the good Russian proverb - the pig could find mud anywhere...Yes, there are unattractive and miserable areas of our life...But, it's very committed photos.
I travelled Pskov far and wide and never met all that persons (or the same) from the photos above...
