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

    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...

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

    "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...

    The K-3 and the K-5 series were all gizmos. Uh, . . . right, King P.

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

    Like Canon's beautiful entry-level DSLR for 2014, the EOS 1200D!

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

    Comparing the Pentax K-S1 to the Pentax K-50 is definitely a good way to avoid having to compare it to Canon's 2014 entry-level DSLR, the EOS 1200D (Rebel T5). I don't think the pentamirror,...

  • Excellent picture. Attractive color palette, interesting scene, crisp detail from that K-5 with the 15 Ltd. Congratulations.

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

    Not at all. The fanboys already have a K-30, or a K-50, or a K-5, or a K-3, or a Q, together with a K-01 that they got when prices made it the best bargain in show business for a while. They...

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

    No.

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

    Yes, the K-S1 pentaprism goes unmentioned. We did hear that the menu font apparently needed changing, though. And about time!

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

    "bashed our heads"

    "Losing skin cells"

    Sounds like the K-S1 attacked you.

    "About time" for a new font on the menus? What? The font has been just fine. "Bizarre" LEDs? Those are for that...

  • Jonathan, I hereby demand that you send me a full resolution copy of that public domain cat photo. I'm producing a line of animal greeting cards, and that one sounds just perfect. I'm also...

  • "Much inferior" is not accurate, I'm afraid. I have both Q and Q7. There is nothing inferior about Q7's robustness. The pop-up flash, which has several moving parts and one might think is fragile,...

  • @Pat - One banana only, and that is being generous. The macaque is lucky to be out of jail. If he wants another banana, he can steal it.

  • That's probably correct -- Wikimedia should take the photo down . . . if that's what Mr. Slater wants. If he wants to sell prints based on free advertising Wikimedia chooses to give him, that's...

  • Mr. Slater owns the work. Once he saw what was happening and allowed the macaque to continue what it was doing, the macaque became a mere assistant. This is a shameless power grab by a huge...

  • "but, again, the Q-S1 with the 08 wide zoom would sum up to near to €1000."

    That's why the Q7 Premium Kit that included the 08, 06, 01, 02, all the hoods, a PL filter, the Q7, and a bag for the...
