  • Ian the K-1 ISO800 image is filled with noise blanketing the entire scene. What you are trying to pass off as signs of more detail is just color noise. It's clever how you put the green outline. ...
  • Mark there is pretty much no color noise in the K-1MKII ISO 100. If you can not see the color noise in the K-1 ISO 800 image compared to the K-1MKII ISO 100 image is just an example that you don't ...
  • Ian you already posted this at PF were it was already made clear what you are seeing isn't less detail and smoothing in the K-1MKII image but color noise in the K-1 image you are mistaking as ...
  • Replied in yes...
    Mako2011 I have already seen Ian's post. Ian's example demonstrates what I have been saying what you think is more detail in the K-1 image is just color noise. There isn't less detail in the ...

    Mako2011 there is no evidence by DPR that shows the image quality of the K-1MKII is inferior than the K-1. DPR conclusions are not even close to being about right. If you are not talking about the ...
  • Replied in Old news
    Mako2011 this is directly from Ricoh's site: "As the combination of PRIME IV and the RICOH developed Accelerator Unit drastically reduces noise, allowing for high sensitivity up to ISO 819,200. By ...
  • It doesn't matter what they claim? Ricoh isn't claiming anything. They are stating the fact that DPS is not a substitute for PS. That DPS should not be used on a tripod. The Pentax SR system ...
  • Roland the only reason the K-1MKII "looks" like there is missing bits to the text compared to the K-1, D850, and A7RIII is because they are all adding false color noise detail as ISO is increased. ...
  • Replied in Drive
    Mako2011 the Accelerator Unit is doing the noise reduction. Ricoh said the Accelerator Unit would be doing noise reduction. The DPR Staff review clearly says in the opening statement that the image ...
  • Replied in Based
    Mako2011 I have done all that and found no evidence the Accelerator Unit is causing the K-1MKII to produce inferior image quality. The exact opposite occurs the K-1MKII files are not just superior ...
  • Mako2011, What is at issue is the fact the DPR Staff Review of the K-1MKII makes the claim that the image quality as ISO increases is inferior to the K-1 and which you are basing your argument. ...
  • Replied in Maybe not....
    Mako2011 What you are talking about is having to massage the K-1, D850, and A7RIII to look more like what the K-1MKII is delivering right out of the camera. There is nothing stopping anyone from ...
  • Mark Ricoh/Pentax hasn't invited comparison they explicitly say DPS is not a substitute for PS. That DPS shouldn't be used while the camera is on a tripod. It is DPR's Review that is misleading you ...
  • Replied in Only....
    Mako2011 I am a fan of better image quality. I am not wedded to all or nothing approach to the means the manufactures can deliver that. Ricoh's  Accelerator Unit clearly is providing better image ...
  • Joe I thought that was your last post? Joe I don't have super human eyesight I am only pointing out what you think you are seeing color noise as detail. Here is the same spot of the Studio Scene yo ...
  • Mark I pointed out that it is the results that are relevant. But you don't care about the results. You are agreeing with the DPR analysis based on a false assumption that DPS is supposed to replace ...
  • Replied in No....
    Mako2011, Look how your line of reasoning has gotten Sony users. That is the other irony in the Studio Scene comparison tool the Sony A7RIII files are the worst. DPR Staff point to Sony as an ...
  • Please Mark the manner at which the SR system is being used is certainly not irrelevant. It is most important and distinguishes the difference between DPS and PS. The DPR Staff review in their ...
  • Replied in Sure
    Mako2011 Your stance and DPR's is the camera manufacturers can never improve the algorithms creating the RAW file to improve the noise better than can be done in post processing. Ricoh has clearly ...
  • Mark, In regards to DPS the DPR review also makes claims they know it is not the same as PS because DPS uses the ShakeReduction unit and PS doesn't. This is not true. PS uses the SR system but ...
