Hey, look at all those scene modes. "Cute dessert", "Sweet child's face". "Warm glowing nightscape". I need one of those! :-)

On article Pentax K-1 Review (2663 comments in total)

This AF-C discussion ought to be winding down by now. So perhaps I shouldn't be posting this then...
Anyway - two things:
1. I trust the DPR AF-C test. Its results on the Pentax cameras mirror my own experiences very well. My own K-3 also usually adjusts the focus only every second or third exposure in an AF-C burst. And I've shot a good amount of competitive bike racing with it.
2. The Pentax system is actually capable of shooting AF-C sequences where it adjusts the focus for every shot, even at closer range. I've seen this a number of times. But it's rare.

Regards,
--Anders.

yesman12: When I see innovation like this, it confirms the reason I went with In Body Image Stabilization... Much more innovative and extensible than In Lens. And all the noise around In Lens being better is probably a wash at this point. In lens is a hold over from film era. Look what In Body can give you....

- Image stabilization on all lenses.
- Tilt shift function on all lenses up to a few degrees.
- Astrotracer in body equatorial mount (and I have used it)
- Macro adjustment
- Configurable aniti- Alias filtering
- And now increased resolution (I am sure off tripod will follow).

Where as In Lens only provides IS on a given lens. That is it.

Don't forget automatic horizon correction. I leave it on permanently and it's great.

"The viewfinder now operates at 200Hz, meaning a lag of just 0.005 seconds." This is not necessarily correct. The lag can be anything and is not directly related to the frequency, as the quote implies.

Norwegian wood: So it got GPS in the external viewfinder. Which silly engineer decided that? So When I shoot flash, or don't carry the external viewfinder I don't get GPS? Well...not a real problem for me since I don't aim to buy it, ever, but anyway...plain silly or did I miss something?

Perhaps it's an antenna thing, if the GPS signal can't penetrate the aluminum body shell?

In reply to:

Scott Eaton: Nice to know that Canon is still using the same engine that blows reds and produces mushy colors that rival 1998 consumer print film.

Blown reds are entirely fixable in-camera. Just pick a "natural" picture style and/or dial down saturation a notch or two.
