DPPMetro: I feel sorry for anyone not buying into Fuji, Sony, or Canon (the latter for dSLR). Nikon will survive, so the sorry is to a lesser extent. Anyone else buying Pentax or any other brand is mostly dead in the water and don't know it.

Olympus seems to be doing better, but they really need to up their sensor tech. Why is there no word of a BSI U4/3 sensor yet that can close some of the gap between it and APSc?

It's years that Pentax is about to be closed... we got used to it ;-)

I don't care about purported employees and/or delusional fanboys.

Maybe I'm just dumb... but how, "soft"?
Last time I checked, silver wasn't "soft" at STP...

Edit: NVM, just googled.

Truly special, not the average boring timelapse.

aris14: No matter if photography is the subject in this forum, it is bad manners, to say the least, to show pictures w/o the appropriate caption for the viewers to understand what those people were trying to do at work...

@aris there are captions on the original site, just follow the link.

"pixel-peepers (I mean that in a good way!) "
No you don't! XD but that's ok ;-)

Very nice reading, as usual, and stunning pictures.

On photo stealing a sip of water in the Your City - Citybirds challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

LensBeginner: Are you sure this is in Rome?
I'm asking because - while I know that the she-wolf is the symbol of both cities - there's an identical fountain in Siena - I know because I made some very similar shots there.

Great shot at any rate ;-)

DPPMetro: Cue Pentaxians to come in and use this as propaganda to bash other brands and to cover up that Pentax has basically one foot in the dumpster with the other foot pushing off the loading dock.

Uh... I didn't do anything of the sort, and I guess I can't speak for others?

Seriously, if you think it's a conspiracy then call the media and expose them...

On the contrary... on what I believe to be the biggest Italian unofficial Pentax forum on the internet we actively encourage everyone seeking advice about buying a Pentax camera to choose a Canikon instead! XD

We the Pentaxians are too busy taking pictures to bash anything ;-)
Now I'll go and develop some from the last outing *_*

Since they started selling fridges with a sparkling water dispenser, even an April 1st jokes has a semi-realistic ring to it...

On article Pentax KP Review (659 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Pentax keeps proving, over and over again, that having outstanding cameras that are jam packed with features, and that deliver incredible image quality and value just isn't enough to make a serious dent in the shrinking DSLR market that is dominated by two 800 pound gorillas.

It just seems like an exercise in futility. What a pity.

The buyer has the power to decide.
It's a(n almost) free world, so how one chooses to spend (waste) his money, that's his business.

Yeah I know... those vintage/limited series/kickstarter thingies are a money drain...

You usually have two green for each blue or red in a Bayer array ;-)

You're the cheapo type, are you? :-P

On article Pentax KP sample gallery (95 comments in total)

I'd like to congratulate the shooter, because the gallery is a) meaningful as a test (various conditions, settings, OOC/RAW comparisons etc.) and b) the pictures are very, very good.

As a side note, I almost always prefer the OOC rendition to the ACR one.

On article OPPO to announce 5x zoom smartphone technology at MWC (65 comments in total)
In reply to:

LensBeginner: The word "optical" is absent in the press release, so I would wait before getting our hopes up... could still be something à la Pureview.

It depends on what you mean by "low resolution".
"Lower", it's a given, but "low"?
40MP and a 2X zoom, thus halving linear resolution and reducing MP count to 1/4 will give you 10MP, plenty for most (cellphone-quality) uses.
