  • Don't see how Pentax cameras fit into the VR and AR market. 360-degree DSLR?
  • Ricoh seems to be betting on AR/VR market. The fact that Pentax camera is now under the umbrella of Smart Vision may just get itself a pass.
  • One can only hope that Pentax camera business is the stone or one of the stones not turned.
  • So that is why we don't see him for quite some time.
  • For the past month I was hoping he would pop in and deliver some good news.
  • Now it is the end of September and we haven't heard anything from Ricoh yet. I think the new APS-C flagship will not show up before the end of the year. Nikon probably will sell a few more D500's ...
  • Not a chance. For a new camera like that, it always proceeds with some rumors, spec leak, etc. and we haven't seen that kind of signs yet. A sure sign is when some Ricoh/Pentax insider posts ...
  • With all the bad press and uncertainty, Ricoh really needs to retain people's confidence in the Pentax brand by releasing a new camera this year. In my opinion showing something, even it is not ...
  • Maybe that has something to do with Ricoh's current camera business state.
  • It is almost September, 6 months after the popular belief that the Pentax KP is not the replacement of the K-3 II and we haven't heard anything about K3iii yet. From the product lineup perspective, ...
  • Camera's white balance setting doesn't really matter when shooting RAW.
  • Unlike rocks, water surface is not motionless. Focus-stacking the same reflection scene from photos taken at different times can give unpredictable effect.

  • D7000Shooter, I think it could be the artifacts from focus-stacking.

  • If Pentax's past product refreshing pattern holds, K3 iii is actually overdue. I think that is why some people think KP is the successor of K3 product line because of its release timing and price. ...
  • A K3iii as you described is definitely an improvement over K-7. But the question is how to price it. Can't be above the price of D7500 ($1249) and below KP ($1099). With this price range how many ...
  • Just read Nikon D7500 review and paid special attention to the section on AF focus performance . I wonder if Pentax has the technology to equip K3iii with that level of AF performance. Frankly, ...
  • Have you tried a mirrorless with EVF and on-sensor AF, like Canon's M5, for that situation?
  • An AF system on a par with Nikon's D7500 would be highly desired.
  • No text
  • According to the French website Les Numérique , we will know K3iii is coming or not in a couple of months. “Le Pentax KP (…) cohabitera pendant six mois avec le K-3 II avant que celui-ci ne prenne ...
