  • My career was in high-tech. I can tell you for a fact, it takes a LOT of capital to bring a product to market. With the key being your 'burn rate', how fast the money is disappearing, a race...

  • I use a Pentax K-5 IIs and a Sony RX100 to take pictures for ad clients... who use them on the internet and on small-quantity-run Xerox Docucolor-printed flyers and brochures.
    With RAW, Lightroom,...

  • Why on earth would someone buy this new camera, when you can still get a K5 or K5 ii for less money? What am I missing here?

  • SEEMS to be aimed at women? No kidding!

    Great product. Surprised that no-one thought of it sooner. wonder what else you could use it for?

  • I have an old Pentax 645N. Same size. You have to get past your own fear of being noticed. Because... in my case... I've found that nobody else really cares.
    OTOH, wandering around with a Hoodman...

  • I use a Ricoh GR. Fits in my shirt pocket, unlike the Leica. And MUCH better image quality, judging from the pix above... plus way better ergonomics. Best of all, since nobody knows what a Ricoh...

  • If you had one of these, might just be perfect for street photography -- I can't think of anything less threatening. And 20 MP ... plenty of room to crop out those subjects who broke out laughing...

  • Naive of me, but does the price include a lens?

    And, can't tell from the photo, but isn't it too big to fit in a man's workshirt pocket? A la XZ-1, RX100, GR, etc...

  • My cameras use SD cards, not MicroSD cards. The Surface Pro 3 only has a MicroSD port. How does this help a photographer?

  • I have an RX100 with a Franiec grip. It's a fantastic pocket camera. I know the newer ones are better, but they are also larger and heavier. Think I'll stick with my 'original'.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    I'd keep this review unfinished until the Pentax FLUcard arrives -- guess that's the last piece of the puzzle.

    And then -- we Pentax owners will finally see if our flagship camera earns a rating...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    I am shocked at the low pricing for this excellent camera -- and for those from other mfgrs -- and also how fast the value depreciates. Scary, scary business. Great times for the consumer, but you...
