  • I agree about being clickbait….and the fact they didn’t make choice all the more frustrating.

    That said, oh how I wish either one of these cameras was serious about video capabilities. I got a...

  • Honestly, there are only three options that make sense: 1. Fix it yourself 2. Switch to lenses with aperture rings to shoot with 3. Buy another camera body The cost of a lab to repair it is likely ...
  • The solenoid to control aperture is broken....only way to use camera is with lenses that have an aperture ring....
  • Replied in The 7% Dilemma
    Umm, I don't know if anyone questioned the viability of Sony's photography division at that time..... Questioned the Alpha/Minolta mount? Yes, but by that time the Sony mirrorless mount was already ...
  • Created discussion thread DA* 16-50 sdm voltage issue?
    Maybe some enterprising person has dealt with, has a solution.... .....or this is the problem with sdm lenses, and good riddance to them. So, I have been using a DA* 16-50mm lens since the K-10D. I ...
  • Thanks for the input. I am shooting jpg mostly, and I have never liked NR on any camera I have ever used, and Ricoh was def. trying to be more like Nikon with my K3 when it came to NR. The info on ...
  • Replied in The 7% Dilemma
    There is a complexity to where the camera market is right now, and Ricoh's place in it. A couple of things to keep in mind: 1. Nikon and Canon have been the dominant players in the market since the ...
  • Created discussion thread Settings for K3lll
    So got a deal on a K3lll and, well, they shouldn’t have named it a K3 iteration because of all the changes. Anyway, I navigated through the menus, making sure all the NRs were off, but I wanted to ...
  • Replied in Mystery lens
    I’m second look it fits on dfa roadmap, but still going with replacement to 55-300….because the 55-300 is simply an update to the 75-300 which was an update to the 100-300. Both of those are fa ...
  • Replied in Mystery lens
    I sincerely doubt it is a ff lens…. the only other option I could see is this is a replacement for the 60-250, finally retiring another sdm lens, and offering a DA star 4f  that has such range it ...
  • Replied in Mystery lens
    Best guess is its a successor to the 55-300, but more compact, like the 18-50 replaced the  18-55 as the default kit lens. I imagine 30 percent smaller, focus by wire, lighter despite having a ...
  • I understand you trying to be helpful, but that didn't answer my question. So, I know this was an issue for the K-3 for I had two. I also had sent my K-3 in to be reviewed under warranty, for this, ...
  • To followup on this, I guess I wonder more about battery life and filming.... I have had two K-3s (the original) and I noticed I really needed to have the grip on with a second battery in order to ...
  • The honest answer is there is no possible way to know, and while I find Cameraville entertaining - and despite what other people say, I find him to be sympathetic to the Pentax faithful, but ...
  • So, like you, I have my traditional camera bag, where my 70-200 2.8 lives with my 16-50 2.8, FA 85 1.4, amongst anything I would throw in my bag for specialty needs. Because I do not want to carry ...
  • I always thought a K-02 would have been a special camera rig, one many dslr video shooters would have made the central part of a system...Remember this is when we didn’t know if JVC was going to...

  • The camera is about average for a DSLR-like camera (which this camera is essentially, missing the mirror and constantly in live mode). It does suffer from jittering trying to compensate for...

  • You know what, stop hating on the K-01! Look, as someone who has shot, and continues to shoot photos and video with the K-01 (it sits in my laptop bag as my backup/travel unit) the camera has its...

  • I am a Pentax lover - have a K10d, K7, K5IIs, K3, K-01, Ks2 and lots and lots of lenses....

    I am perplexed by this offering - On one hand, this seems to have the upgrades in AF we have been...
