On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2651 comments in total)
In reply to:

JacobSR: I think dpreview go overboard with their testing. Just say it's a nice camera, that's all.
Nothing is perfect, and not one camera can do everything. Not all are suitable to your method of testing. And not everybody uses the camera the way you do. I think you are working too hard.
Just tell us the different features with some photos, that's all. And, then there will be peace on Earth.

No matter the tests, to me yes, all cameras are nice, especially In this day and age, very nice indeed. but not equal, who wants them to be?

What is equal is my respect to all cameras brands with their innovations and history. Even though their design philosophy might be different and not be for everybody. I beg or expect that they all receive the same equal respect.

I'm not requesting not to do your job. Do whatever you like. But with all that testing, and constantly favoring one brand over the other, I feel that this has become more of Consumer Report than a camera review.

Shake Reduction can degrades image quality. For better tracking SR should be disabled especially when in AF-C mode. SR should only be used when needed.

Black text on white is natural on the news paper or books we read but not on the monitor.
Keep in mind that the text makes about 10% of the page you are viewing. If you are using black text on white, that means about 90% of the page which is white is shining through your eyes. I think that will create more damage.
Take your laptop to the back porch at night (set on light) and you will know what I mean, you will not be able to look at the monitor, you will need sunglasses. I don't care how much you adjust intensity. Now switch the page to dark and Uhhhh YES.
It's nice to have a choice, but your default should be dark.

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)
In reply to:

turvyT: Interesting. Pixel shift is a technology suited for still subjects, however dpreview test it with moving ones and gets disappointed with the results. What was dpreview expecting? It's sort of "X camera is not weatherproof but I test it in my swimming pool and when it gets soaked and does not work anymore I get very disappointed".

The article clearly says Pixel shift. If you want to test the motion correction it should be separate. But why choose the water fall. This water fall will create extreme wind for nearby plants and force the water to move rapidly.
You can force any camera to fail. We know everything has limitations.

In reply to:

JacobSR: Aren't you suppose to turn off the Shake Reduction when Pixel Shift? Please tell us if you disabled Shake Reduction or not!

If there is no tripod, one might want to use pixel shift hand held. So the camera will not automatically disable the SR (I don't know). I just wanted to make sure it's off, otherwise it can degrade image quality if it's on the tripod. Thanks for the info.

In reply to:

JacobSR: OK Pentax, now you can make a Full Frame mirrorless K-01 type camera with 4K video. Do not forget the EVF (a must have) and please none of that Marc Newson design. Make your own.

OK, so name it K-02, or KM-2 or whatever. Just bring back to full frame.

No, not my particular needs. A mirror less K-01 Full Frame would be a great idea, wouldn't you say?

locke_fc: Sorry, but a 1/1.7" sensor is no longer acceptable. Might as well use your smartphone instead.

Exactly, there are some guys who buy what they want, and there are others who buy what dpr want.

In reply to:

viking79: The Q is fine, and the sensor is actually pretty good, but still missing a model with a viewfinder and flip screen... Using the camera in bright light is a chore. This class of camera should also have good sharing options, WiFi, NFC, etc. The NX Mini is more appealing to me, but the Q does have a nicer selection of lenses available.

It's not only the sensor size. It's the QUALITY of the sensor, the processing engine, and the quality of the optics. In a compact body with great ergnomics and the proper controls under your fingertips.

On article Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands (73 comments in total)

Great photos but some have no balance. The way I see it this is heavily focused on the forground. Vertical shots that shows depth but the forground taking most of the space that it ruins the backround. Some the backround is so beatifull but it is too distant and is lost: ( 2, 3, 4, 9, 14). The rest are fantastic. Just my 2c.

In reply to:

Retzius: I can't believe you ended the review with this:

"It's not a camera to change systems for, but it's well worth upgrading to, and good enough to make the Pentax system worth considering if you have no existing commitments."

In effect, you are bluntly saying "don't buy this camera if you are a Nikon or Canon user."

Nikon and Canon will be happy now :)

Yeah, well I'm sure if this was a Nikon or Canon reveiw, one's would never find such a comment.

In reply to:

kai liu: many times, lens is way more important than body. I used to use pentax for 2 years. then I switched to canon 7d. Canon just have so much more lens choice. Pentax lens selection is really limited. And their lens quality are behind canon lens. When I see k-3, it sure looking amazing, but then I think about those pentax lens I have used, I lost interest. I think pentax's priority is to update their lens. They have not announce some high quality lens for many years.(except that 560mm) but look at canon they keep making new lens and update old lens with better optical.

Which lens that you really need that Pentax or a 3rd party lens maker don't have?
