  • I just bought my camera in January, I had a good idea the mkII was coming , but it was a week before the official announcement and many dealers were discounting the K-1 pretty heavily . With still ...
  • My Canon G11 had an optical viewfinder.
  • I used to have a Canon G11 , which I bought to have a compact camera which could always be with me . After a while I decided I wasn’t getting the quality I wanted from it and upgraded to my Pentax ...
  • Same here , although my still cameras have video capability, I seldom use it . If going out to shoot video I take a proper video camera- with video lens including proportional zoom control , proper ...
  • My Pentax K mount system started out as a film SLR system , then I got my first DSLR body ( currently have three ) , and along the way I also got the K-01 mirrorless body - so my system spans all ...
  • I started out with a part time job ( then full time ) selling hi-fi equipment when I was at uni , and photography was a hobby . Later , I had jobs where photography was either a small part of what ...
  • A proper camcorder; not a still camera which shoots video on the side . Ask on a video forum . http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/
  • It is indeed nice to read for a change about when things go right rather than when they go wrong . I suppose it is human nature to speak out when something went wrong ; if only people were as vocal ...
  • It largely depended on the quality of the lenses - cheap cameras might have cheap plastic lenses; premium cameras would have premium glass with good optical coatings - you made your choice ...
  • Oh indeed , but even in a litigious society having statute on your side can be a big help . To again take used cars as an example , any fault which comes to light within six months of purchase is ...
  • Well , I didn’t expect traders over there to care about our laws any more than traders here to care about your laws . My point was - doesn’t your government care about protecting consumers in your ...
  • Don’t you guys have any consumer rights legislation over there ?? See Consumer Rights Act , in particular sections 19-24 Buyers have the right to reject goods up to 30 days from delivery , and the ...
  • I don’t know the answer , but it looks a bit like a Go-Pro Session ? While it appears to be in front of his eye , it just may be the moment of capture, as he lowered his camera from his eye ? I ...
  • Quite . My first still camera with one was my little Canon G11 - zero problems . Lots of my video cameras have had flip out LCD screens , going back as far as JVC GY-DV5000 which must be more than ...
  • That was the reason he gave his boss over the phone while I was standing next to him ‘ my cameras aren’t waterproof ‘ - I saw a D800 in his hand , don’t know what else he had . His loss though , ...
  • Actually, a lot of journalists and broadcasters use them now - immediate coverage is sometimes the most important factor.
  • Doesn’t need to be : while my K-3 has one , the main reason the K-1 doesn’t is because the GPS receiver is in the hump above the pentaprism . My MZ-S 35mm film body had a pop up flash that worked ...
  • Move up to a Pentax K-1 and you get an articulating screen ; lesser models don’t have one . I was covering a job on Friday in torrential rain , the Nikon shooter cried off as he didn’t want to risk ...
  • Each division operates autonomously, but they are part of the Mitsubishi group of companies.
  • Cameras are one of their product lines , and they are a division of Mitsubishi.
