  • I did not know that you sold puppies... Doug
  • Replied in Pixel-Shift
    <snip> Small quibble... interpolates would be better here than averages.  Averaging is one way of doing interpolation, but there are other more sophisticated approaches.  What is used depends on ...
  • Replied in Re New 85?
    I bow to your superior knowledge ;-)
  • Replied in Re New 85?
    I stand corrected on my previous "observation".  It does appear on more than wide lenses, and in fact has been used at 85mm. Mistral as usual is a fountain of  knowledge! Doug
  • +1 So did you, or did you not, read my post below first ;-) ;-) ;-) Doug
  • Replied in Re New 85?
    It still leads to the question that (if I am right that it is usually on wider lenses) what is Pentax using it for on a 85mm lens? If I look at the special site I see "When holding the lens, you’ll ...
  • Replied in Re New 85?
    I googled "camera lens concave front element" and got a few results (Summicron, Sony, Canon, ...). It seems more common with wider angles though, i.e., <55mm). Doug
  • We tend to get into a binary cheap vs expensive discussion when reality has more shades of grey (maybe not 14 bits worth). Right now, considering both APS & FF, you can get $200 lens or less (e.g., ...
  • Replied in Pixel-Shift
    To a degree. The pixel shift image contains 4 images shifted so that at each pixel you get a full RGB sample not simply interpolated from the Bayer pattern of a single image.  The result is an ...
  • Actually I remember ~10(?) years ago people were complaining that Pentax was NOT cheap enough.  Canon and Nikon had lots of inexpensive lenses available and entry level bodies.  That is why Pentax ...
  • Replied in KP vs K70
    Ya, I have K-01 too ;-)  The KP is slightly smaller form factor (in particular the grip) although heavier, and the KP has better SR. Doug
  • Replied in KP vs K70
    I just tried it.  I couldn't see any difference between the two. Doug
  • Replied in KP vs K70
    My misunderstanding. I was just trying to indicate an advantage, I don't type fast enough to get into long descriptions :-)  The KP screen simply tilts whereas the K-70 flippy/swivel/whatever ...
  • Replied in KP vs K70
    I have both the KP and the K-70.  I also have a K-3. The K-70 has pixel shift like the KP but it only saves to JPG not RAW. KP pluses: better build quality, better shutter/aperture mechanism, ...
  • Replied in Thank You All
    My brothers story... and close to 30 years ago... he was an avid climber and had read every book written about climbing Mt Everest.  He was in Bangladesh at a conference and afterwards took a week ...
  • I also heard the theme from Star Wars!  An old  Scottish classic ;-) Doug
  • Lol, I was hearing that piper a little while ago! Doug
  • Replied in not ...???
    Uhmm... they are talking about OVFs not EVFs ;-) Doug
  • In the snow.  With a badger on  my back!
  • Ergonomics is very personal.  It is next to impossible to agree on what is best, although when it is bad it is bad! Personally I prefer the smaller size of the KP over my K-3 but I know there are ...
