  • At least one news report said it was a Phantom that someone crashed to the sidewalk in Manhattan from about 300 feet, nearly hitting a pedestrian. That could have been a serious injury with a...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    K-50 can use Eye-Fi cards. FLU, I don't think so.

  • How so? How so "way," specifically?

  • "Easily combine Facebook Cover and Profile photos with text and graphics to create an integrated layout that's sure to get noticed."

    I've been doing that "manually" for years, but Facebook is very...

  • The Nikon report was "updated." This one could be updated as well.

  • First view of an all-black WG-M1. Might be a good hip-shot stealth still camera.

  • shooting with some snazzy mirrorless with no filter threads, is my guess . . .

  • A spare but fair (i.e., not gratuitously snarky) report. DPR could only mention what Ricoh brought to the event, so it is what it is. My only observation would be on the point "As with all Pentax...

    I was a big fan of MZ-S, PZ-1p, and ZX-5n also, especially the PZ-1p, which I think introduced the hyper-program/green button that has been with us ever since. I've never found the Pentax UI...

  • Ricoh is aiming for that segment of the action camera market that couldn't care less about every top-end specification possible. There are plenty of Youtube hero wannabes to go around for several...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    I'll second the idea that DPR simply does not understand Pentax - and not just the market Pentax aims for, but Pentax's quite fluid user interface - well enough to do a review that doesn't contain...

    Sandy - It's DPR -- not me -- that calls EOS1200D, D3300, and K-S1 "entry level." I think K-S1 punches a little bit above that weight class, but I took them at their word to pull up the...

    "Pentax and the rest of the traditional camera industry still don't have a clue about how to reach these people"

    That might be the case, and it might be difficult to do if attempted. But among...

  • More laughs in store with Canon's and Nikon's 2014 "entry level" black blobs with knobs! Their pentamirror viewfinders are especially hilarious, not to mention that they are called "Compact SLR"...

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    No, the Pentax menu font has been just fine, perfectly legible and clear. This was some kind of "princess and the pea" criticism.

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    The Pentax menu font has always been just fine, perfectly legible and clear. DPR's "insight" here is some kind of "princess and the pea" criticism.

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    @Tan68 -- DPR's muddling of compact and mid-size is only a corollary point to my main point, but I do think it is very deliberate. Nikon's only "entry-level" DSLR in 2014 (D3300) is also listed as...
