Roland Karlsson's recent activity

  • Now, just to get things right. This is a small sensor camera. It is 1/2.5 inch. So - it is noisy, even at base ISO. We know that. And there are lots of other cameras like this.

    But - the problem...

  • Judging from the images, even at base ISO, the quality is not enough for having any need for RAW.

  • Agree 100%

    Is this a joke?

    Looks like digital images from many years ago, more like a creative filter in Photoshop than real photography.

    That guy with the galss looks like coming directly from...

  • Hmmmmmm ... the images are not all that fantastic. Not bad ... but. And it shows that it is only 13 MP.

    I have my G10 and really loves it. So, this has better IQ. But ... is it worth it. Or shall...

  • Hmmmmm ... no ... I do not think so. Seems somewhat too clumsy to have the lens cap hanging like that.

  • Are you for real?

    Chill down Greg.

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story

    1999 was a good year for camera bak design!

    Seriously, it looks OK to me.

  • Horrible image. To avoid as background at all costs.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    The award is the reviewers feeling for the camera. And they really did like to use it. That's it.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    I use JPEG sometimes. It is an easier route in some cases. One example. I sometimes makes panorama pictures with a massive number of images. Several panorama pictures on the same session. It is...

    Ahhhh .. the K-3 review. At last :)

    I have looked at the conclusion .. and it looks all right :)

    Now ... over to read the review :)

  • Maybe ... but there were press photographers at that time. Remember the Speed Graphics. It was invented in the early
    1910s.

    Maybe what I say is not politically correct. Maybe I am even wrong. The...

  • Quite normal images from that time. I see no press images, just portraits.

  • Unusual photos. No idea that butterfly wings looked like the up very close.

    Thanks for the thumbs up!

  • A little bit too expensive. Moreover, I have a hard time finding Pentax Q at all in Swedish shops. That is a bad omen. Buying into a system that might be obsolete any day does not seem clever.

  • So sad. This one I should probably have been tempted to get ... if it was for real.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Jonny - he did not say they delayed the review of the camera not to hurt Nikon sales. He said, they delayed the review of the camera because some other cameras did pass in the queue, due to...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    What is a sweet spot and what is not is a matter of the intended usage of the camera.

    I have been comparing test images on the net between K-3 and K-5, and there is no doubt that there is much...
