Where are its light shapers? Does it take Profoto std accessories?

Jinbei Mars. More power than the Godox and the B1 Profoto. Google it. A great light that maybe DPreview could look at here.

kryten61: I have not read any other messages, BUT What setting, Raw, Jpg, Portrait, Landscape, dynamic, This is a pointless exercise . Even with this pointed out, people going to town on doing this test? This is DP review/ Youtube CLICKBAIT! FFS

How is it useful for Buyers? Sheeple? I can take about 8 different colour rendered shots on my current camera, and show them to you with no info as to which ones they are and you would learn what from it if I told you NOTHING? Start by telling me what you learnt from the colour comparisons in this Vid? What did this information help you with? I learnt that three different images taken with three different brands of camera's all look slightly different and if I know what setting they were shot on I may actually have a little bit more than NOTHING. Again please tell me how this helped you?

Mared: DPR gave the Sony A9 a score of 89??

The Sony A9 is a revolutionary camera!

DPR's FIrst Review of the A9 was full of errors...

DPR's retracted and republished review, of course, shows increased performance. As such, the score should be reassessed and increased.

Why hasn't DPR INCREASED THE SCORE YET???

Canon Bias Advertising $?

Well they are now owned by Amazon so I would say that is the end of any legitimate review.
With Amazon ownership , I have zero trust in this being a neutral site without bias, Pity.

K1000usr: There are so many threads here now :-)

While Sony/Canon/Nikon aficionados can agree or disagree on what ever is superior about A9, one thing not so well highlighted is: product support.

Camera/lens repair and support infrastructural-dimension should be part of the calculus. It should be a category which should be separately tracked, and accounted for when giving awards (particularly of Gold standards..) to cameras. (Yes it doesn't apply to a specific model, but it is a universal basic requirement.)

How do these three companies stack against each other on Repair Infrastructure? This issue is more important perhaps to Professionals. And perhaps should be weighted more for 'Professional' cameras?

Hmm

In reply to:

Triplet Perar: NIKON 1 V3 was Sony a9 killer of yesterday! It delivered the fps, the accuracy, the speed, and all photographers ever needed for sports action (20 fps tracking, 60 fps fixed focus, etc), and a Nikon 1 kit could be assembled for peanuts compared to an a9 set.
But again, the tremendous prejudice of the digital photography snobbery sniggers at anything with sensor smaller than FF, and less than a truckload of equipment to show off. Just read the sorrowful comments in other thread about "death of Nikon 1". What a horrible attitude towards a genuinely great system! But geeks celebrate a9 years later — despite fact that technology already was there that allowed work to be done, even to sports photographers. It shows the pathetic state of this market — it is not about the essence, but all about pretence, all about snobbery.

A sensor the size of the Nikon One series and slowish lenses may only need 15 focus steps to track focus, and shallow depth of field? Not Really! A FF 35mm camera may need 1000's of steps in it calculations to support focus tracking, you cannot compare these two systems IMHO, The N One series sensor size flatters its performance when focus and frame rate are considered.

Keenasmustard: Wow fantastic shot! How many images did you bracket if you don't mind me asking?

Sorry just saw this comment, Only one exposure. This light lasted about 30 seconds and I was lucky to grab it when it happened.

In reply to:

m43ismoretroublethanitsworth: As far as the bundled SilkyPix software; I used it over the course of 4 years on 4 computers and it is slow, in addition to being cumbersome. The fact that Lightroom doesn't handle Pixel shift properly, is more evidence that the technology just is not beneficial.

Adobe respond to a Popular trend? Think about it, Sigma and Tamron have stopped making many lenses in K mount because of poor sales over a long period. The same companies have been slow to react to the Sony boom, so don't count on companies like Adobe racing to support Pentax, it is not a given, and so should be considered.

Wow, Bowens have finally fixed their terrible low CRI panels, very late to the party, and thats news worthy?

Steve Sanacore: How do you prevent light from getting behind the filters? It looks wide open on top and on the bottom of the holder. I've used the Lee filter holders for years and had to tape off the top and bottom to prevent flare from behind. But this is a much larger area to block.

So Bohus, YOU designed the technology? I can confirm this.

kryten61: Pentax is not a sports camera, so why would you? The big advantage Canon and Nikon have over the Mirrorless camera's is focus tracking for sports shooter. Pentax would offer no advantage, so that said, An A7 is far more attractive. Any lens is available to you with a Mirrorless camera. These high res sensors are more than is needed for landscape rather than needing pixel shift especially at real world print sizes and outputs, I would rather have the lens choices than Pixel Shift. Sorry, this camera is about brand sentimentality rather than making any sense for a new buyer. I am sure it will handle well, be well made, and feel good to use, but all too late I reckon, Would have been better making a proper mirrorless camera but considering the real tech in the A7RII, Ricoh Pentax would struggle to catch up. This camera will make a few Camera Clubbies happy but cannot see it grabbing a new generation of shooters which is really what Pentax need, to be relevant.

I totally understand pixel shift was using on a Blad 7 years ago. Do you understand it? Please enlighten me how you will use your pixel shift on your next everyday photo shoot, then tell me how many lenses Pentax have that actually are capable of showing much improvement with it? Pixel shift is fine if you have no movement in your landscape, So product shoots mainly? So thanks for making my point for me. Also what Pentax lens design was Tokina using when they made the Pentax 16-50 F2.8 lens for them???

"rather than needing pixel shift especially at real world print sizes"
Sure, who needs sharpness and true to life color reproduction. " Ummmmmmmm??? Anyone who has bought a Sony A7RII or D800 I suppose? And they even have a large choice of sharp lenses to use. Oh and they can capture these images in a micro second rather than 4 exposures, This means a wedding shot, a wildlife shot etc etc, Pentax pixel shift.....LOL Great for a desert landscape on a windless day hahahaha awesome.

"Yes yes, Pentax is doomed for the past 15 years now?" used to work for them when they were Pentax, not Ricoh, you know when the were so strong that they thought of Ricoh as a second shelf brand. Compared to how strong they were back then, they are now irrelevant and very much a niche brand. Strong smell of Naphthalene in this forum :-) Samsung had more market share than Pentax and they are pulling out, so what is your definition of "Doomed" (your quote not mine)

Penatx have more lenses? LOL, you mean more lenses made by Tokina for APS=C?
"Any K mount or M42 lens is available to the future owner of K1." Thanks for stating the obvious , how is this any comparison for taking ANY lens on the Sony?. "Oh those poor fools buying 50+ Mpx digital MF cameras, if only they knew that 24 Mpx is enough!" What's your point? So how does pixel shift work with anything but an absolutely static image (still life?) Sorry mate but rather just have 42 from an A7RII, Do you think that's not enough?

kryten61: Kickstarter = A way to sell unproven product to a sheep mentality.

Never in history have people lined up to be sold product with zero testing or proof of performance. Can you say LED Light Cube anyone? 1000's sold on kickstarter without even a rated light output! I think Kickstarter web pages remove peoples intelligence through some electronic means and remove their rationality.

Yes mate sheep mentality, personally I would rather touch, test, and read some proof of a products claims. Not into buying a light for example that says, hey I am amazing and I put out light, and I am the best and if you buy me now before I exist you will SAVE MONEY! lol
