  • Your gallery covers Canons Ashby! A lovely part of the world. I like what you say about slow and thoughtful photography, particularly for landscapes, and so this camera may be appealing if one...

  • Replied in Workshops
    There are plenty of online workshops these days for pretty reasonable fees. Not the same as in person, of course, but can be great for learning and exploring what other, very experienced  folks ...
  • That is both really interesting and incredibly helpful. There are plenty of students on my uni course who would love to get an inside look at the ‘how to’, as here, and often that’s not easy to ...
  • Replied in agree
    Which pretty well confirms the point that while some may think the K-3III is far too expensive, Pentax are banking in loyal long-term customers ponying up for the smaller format anyway. FWIW I ...
  • Replied in agree
    Good point, but isn’t the problem with the OVF that it’s still APS-C and can be bettered simply by moving to FF which these days isn’t likely to be that much more expensive? It depends on what ...
  • That depends on where you live and who you buy something from. I can get shorter warranties from the seller here if it’s a reputable company. That said, it’s a good idea to research things and ...
  • Buying any camera from any brand at full price is a voluntary option. There are sales and deals, and often eventually price reductions. If you really need what the camera offers and think it’s well ...
  • TBH, I’m not sure there is much chance of _any_ camera brand at all messing with mounts for the time being (I realize you are talking of the M mount, not a completely new one). The camera market ...
  • The question about Pentax is whether they are making cameras in hope of pulling in a sizeable number of new users or are primarily aiming to sell to their existing users. If Pentax are making ...
  • So far as I can make out, Pentax’s AF has always been aimed at the use cases of the broad mass of Pentax users. Kinda what one might expect. That really doesn’t include high-end sports and ...
  • The best camera I ever owned back in the day was an FE2. This new one looks fantastic. However, I think Nikon will have to rely on their brand name and its looks to make this one a success. Fuji...

  • I don’t think there is only one. What I’ve found: Capture One - best development quality, very sophisticated,  but very crude DAM tools. DxO Photolab - best denoising and very good all round for ...
  • The market tightens. Unless a company has access to this level of technology - not only the sensor but the imaging pipeline, AF, software and lenses - then it is going to struggle to stay relevant...

  • Whatever the actual merits of the case, I suspect the settled perception is that M43 is stuck in a rut with the 20mpx Same Old Sensor. Without a newer, more modern sensor that’s clearly a step up...

  • Presumably Ricoh are pricing this at the most they think they can charge for their intended market. Underpricing something is just taking money from your own pocket. In fact, if you price ...
  • Replied in Sony to GFX?
    You have a really lovely stream on Flickr. You already have a lot of top-flight kit. TBH, I would do nothing for the time being except make images and wait for the answer to come to you, which it ...
  • Oh for your use case, sure. What you say makes perfect sense.  I’m just pointing out that for other use cases MF is no longer as rarified as it used to be. There are also use cases where MF is ...
  • The expectation is surely that Pentax owners will upgrade over the next year or two because they have nowhere else to go. A couple of new modern lenses are slated to arrive for this camera and the ...
  • The cost of MF is coming down and its capabilities are increasing. It will never be as adaptable and flexible as FF but it might win some over on grounds of superior IQ, and the recent ...
  • If you anticipate an onslaught then everything that happens will seem like one. Even if it isn’t. Best not to go there, imho. Most folks are not really interested in what the next guy is using. It ...
