I can't help it! That hair dripping from her chin really bothers me.

The background is messy.

Use your strapped camera as a weapon to scare off all those people around you that are looking at the back of their phones.

On article Video: Removing a stuck lens filter... with a band saw (139 comments in total)

The way it was once explained to me, is that the metal frame of the filter has just enough flex to distort its roundness when you grip to remove.

The trick is to put a piece of rubber on a flat tabletop and stand the lens on the rubber; and twist to remove. The rubber exerts an even pressure all away around the filter frame. The filter frame not distorted out of round comes off easily.

Samuel Jessop: The K-1 would be ideal for my photography, and I can't complain about the price. However I will be holding off buying one until decent 28/1.8 and 50/1.8 primes are available to buy.

On the other hand, for me the killer feature is GPS and I'd go Sony instead if that was included in the A7 3rd generation.

The DA* 50 mm f1.4 would work just fine.

DPPMetro: Unfortunately, Pentax has nothing in this range because the K-3ii has been discontinued and a replacement is doubted to be on the horizon.

Ricoh's recently reported financial loss was in their industrial copier department, NOT the photography division. Yet, I don't understand how they can continue to do good in cameras and lens, even though they rarely seem to advertise or pay for shelf-space recognition in reviews, etc.. Perhaps not having a large marketing advertising expense reflects in lower prices, which they find more beneficial for increased sales?

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (427 comments in total)

Is it worth $100 more and 25% battery power to get a change in AF system?

The little yellow Pentax K-01 has developed a growing cult following because of its unique design and excellent image quality reported in the forums. I've been watching for a used one, but they get snatched up pretty quickly. I think Ricoh/Pentax would have a winner if they kept the basic design and colour scheme. and updated/ tweaked the AF, and maybe added a pop-up EVF for sunny days. The pop-up flash is a waste of space.

I wish I could say, I took that photograph....meaning for all 12.
Congratulations, they are all great!

I moved the photo a bit; and then I realized how dusty was my computer monitor!

Your DPR Pentax K-1 pixel-shift sample is better in comparison.

The Pentax 645Z is due for an upgrade. I wonder if an upgrade would include pixel-shift technology?

In reply to:

22codfish: Here we go again, no representatives from Pentax.

I guess it's because Pentax doesn't pay for "shelf space" ?

You're correct B.B., except the Pentax lens is a little shorter, a little broader, a little heavier which may be due to the weatherproofing Pentax has outweighing the shake reduction Pentax has instead in the camera body. Also, maybe the different lens coatings may make the lens a bit different.

You shouldn't knock "Kit lens" I have an old (non WR ) Pentax 18-55 mm which is pretty sharp and I should use more often.

Cheers & Merry Christmas

Are you referring to FA* 70-200 mm re-badged Tamron?
They have different elements and groups in DPR comparison.

22codfish: Sony RX100 V Amazon price more than double the Sony RX100 price today.

Is a tilting screen worth the price difference? I don't think so. So what else should I consider to make the RX100 V cost effective to buy instead of the RX100?

I don't own a Sony, but I'm looking for a good pocket camera. If you own a more current RX 100 model, what do you see as being a worthwhile improvement? Are the photos consistently any better? (Wow! DPR added spell-check. :-) )
