I tried this tripod. It is very stable given its slim profile.
I tried this tripod. It is very stable despite its slim profile.
But, it's a medium format camera not much bigger (if at all) than a Nikon D4.
You know, the K3 has a very colorful display, the LCD on the back and the top. Yet it looks good, dignified. Not garish.
Pentax needs to release a decent mirrorless camera. I like the Q (the initial one, anyway) but something in APS sensor size would be good. This camera could have been it, but I don't think Pentax...
Didn't they used to call these "idiot lights" on a car's dashboard?
$750 MSRP for a plastic body? Sounds like they have designs on Nikon territory.
The old Panasonic G1 got hard edges and was reborn as this new Pentax.
The 85mm f/1.4 lens under its various distributor's names is only $300.00 or so. I wonder why a 50mm would be almost $640?
Can either of them process data fast enough so you don't see those patches of blur when moving water is video'd? In HD, or 4K?
$600 gets you into a lot of m4/3 or APS sensors. I tried considering the camera from a number of angles, but I can't see getting it except for the lens zoom range, the build quality, compared to a...
Who cares what Amazon offers for a trade-in, unless someone has a screw loose? Go to Ebay and look at what the cameras sell for used. It's a LOT different.
Printers cheaper than their inks, or nearly so. Canon and Epson's contribution to mountains of e-waste.
The Fuji does not have Leica's build quality. The XPro-1 feels like plastic.
Nothing like having the grain/noise of a digital at 12,800 and only 400 ISO speed.
Wasn't Nikon's copy of their old rangefinder in (2000?) about $4000?
They probably levied another tax in Germany to subsidize overpriced "green" power generation.
Leica, like all well-made products are not for everyone, even if they have the money. Money can't buy taste.
Maybe cutting-edge video isn't a priority for Leica shooters?
Light pollution interferes with the circadian rhythms of humans and animals. Additionally, for all their talk of "saving energy" we still see 1960's-style streetlights, autolots, etc., pouring...
