On article Keeping the faith: Pentax K-1 video overview (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

MX was my first cam, along with the SMC 50mm/ f 1.4 lens. still works perfectly, the lens is still competitive with today standards.

Nice work. But there is something in the color rendering I don't like, something F-505ish...

mosc: what's the time like for 4 captures? Are we talking 1 second or 1/10th or 1/100th for a maximum speed shutter 4-some.

The function aims to a niche of photogs and for special purposes or content in given situations. You don't wear gloves if you feel cold and you want to type. You use a heater or whatever to warm your hands.

Jack Hogan: Well done. I feel however that to fairly compare noise and DR in captures taken in pixel-shift mode with others, one should first stack four captures of the others.

Not familiar with the term workflow I guess...

aris14: Three top of their line cams each one aiming in 3 different niche of users. Given what they offer more compared to existing rivals I say that Pentax has a clean advantage overall mainly due its price and specs .

I really see all your points. My POV relies that K-1 can be proved the reliable workhorse in the hands of a beginner pro (in stills or landscape) and can also be the a great backup for pros or the affordable solution for semipros or dedicated and serious enthusiasts. The reception of the camera will be very interesting.

steelhead3: Congratulations to Canon and NASA for getting together with the low bidder.

In this case the higher bidder, like it or not.
In this world, you know, advertising and publicity have a cost. Assuming the gear costs a couple of hundred thousand $, the turnover is some 50 times these money, leaving to NASA some more extra money for everyday expenses.

Clean, simple and easy, adding this extra feeling of solid construction. Pana guys use the right mixture of contemporary and traditional in practically all their products with excellent results.

The fact that a magazine is considered influential does not necessarily means its not silly...

Well, it will be more than welcomed if s/o could tell us why this cam costs 35-50% less than its rivals flagships.

I think that Pentax delivered an excellent product by all means, a clever and sophisticated workhorse.

I overpass the pixel peepers comments (who cares) to those of pixel connoisseurs -I use this term to separate the opinions of those who mainly look their pictures on screen to those who care and know how to handle and manage their files, result wise, to produce printed images .

Ι sense that recently Canon acts/reacts somehow under pressure, At least more than the other guys of competition.
They may all have their reasons to act so, but leaves me indifferent.
They all, with slightest, if noticeable, IQ performance delivery wise, offer good cams, no matter what.
It's time to act like mature guys at least in the niche of FF or higher implementations.

noflashplease: Samyang makes the plunge to autofocus.... for the full frame mirrorless Sony A7 series? It goes to show that Canon and Nikon are badly behind in the mirrorless market and full frame is the new normal. Kudos to South Korean Samyang for bringing real competition to the Japanese lens manufacturers.

On article Using third-party lenses on the Sony a7 / a7R (532 comments in total)

I guess that it's not a bad idea to play with some old lenses from which you may sometimes get very good results (kudos to Pentax veteran lens). Not for a nice frame per se but for the effort some people do to find the cam's limits and maybe themselves.
Now, if an old lens can deliver the desired result for a specific job, why not? Some veterans proved they still sing well...

Getty is not protecting the rights of people who cooperate with it.
So Getty has to do/construct all necessary tools and functions in order to facilitate its clients. The money Getty did not spend for so many years (money out of pocket) for the protection of its clients work jeopardized those clients' earnings for which loss Getty is the sole and only responsible.
