How about us lowly X10 users? I defended the X10 through forums and Amazon reviews, dismissing the significa of the orbs for all the performance positives.. Mine is half dead in some respects, but I still cling to it.

I love my K01. The fact that is yellow makes it even more amazing. Takes fantastic photos and makes for great conversation. With Aliens.

pedroboe100: The point is to have a transition to a complete CLOUD system. Quality will continue to improve gradually. For those of us who own Chromebooks, this is good news. I can now upload to Google drive all my RAW files, store them there, edit in G+, share them with family etc. When I get home, I can access them from my desktop. Everyone who is a major OS company is aiming for this anyway. Apple is trying to do it, although awkwardly and Microsoft will also transition into "cloud only" by Windows 10. Next year, I will probably only using

Like I said in my original post: as of today, Chromebooks are for end users, not power users. If you are a pro, or shoot 5 to 8 gigs of keepers, then you need a more robust alternative. For me, I don't shoot that many keepers. It's nice to know that, if I am in the middle of Indonesia and I have an internet connection, no matter how bad, I can upload a couple of keepers in RAW and will be there in the event that I lose my chromebook or my camera drops in the water, etc. It's good insurance, albeit still needs to be better, I admit. I used it this summer and with very frustratingly bad internet connections. But I was able to upload something to Gdrive.

I agree, I would do it in small batches, until I get there. But the point is that it can be done, G drive can hold a lot of RAW files and it would be a great backup on the road, even with crappy internet connections.

I should have made clear that I am not a pro, just an end user. I don't need to upload torrents of data and I did experience slow uploads this summer while traveling. But Gdrive tan store a lot of data!
Google, Picasa and G+ are for users. Pro photographers have to shell out $$$ to obtain the adequate and robust software that a pro needs. If you are going to spend 5K on full frame tralala photo equipment, don't be whining about something that is basically still beta. Give it time. We are in the "Wright Brothers" stage of cloud computing.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Those that are upset at the prices of these lenses aren't considering the quality of them. I don't know of another set of lenses for this price, for this quality, in any other manufacturer. I'd be upset if Pentax charged $400.00 for a kit lens but these seem reasonable considering the market and economic times. Plus, those are just MSRP, real prices will be lower.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Furthermore, I find it irritating when people particularly complain about the lens caps. for the love of god, they are Metal! buy a cheapo plastic one if you don't like it, but be happy that you are getting good craftsmanship...

On article Ricoh introduces weather-resistant Pentax flash units (40 comments in total)
In reply to:

smafdy: I recently purchased a couple of Pentax bodies (k-5 and k-30), for the sole benefit of the high ISO performance/price point they offer. That said, even with a top notch sensor it can't hurt to have a dedicated flash.

Prior to purchasing a dedicated flash, I did a little research.

Pentax P-TTL implementation apparently sucks when compared to Nikon and Oly (the two other brands I shoot). It seems that P-TTL is virtually worthless the moment you tilt the flash head to bounce the flash. As a result, I shoot only with studio strobes or available light.

I wonder if these units address the problem, or if it is a problem with the implementation within the body, not the flash unit.

Hope someone tests these units, soon.

It's true, I've had lot's of problems using pttl. I was hoping they had fixed it with the new k5iis but seems as unpredictable as my old k5
