Hello from Texas

Hello from Texas.

I was a Member of PentaxForums at one time, and canceled because of interest in Nikon D7000, but I must say it is rather unimpressive at the moment, all for the reason of complaints on the initial units, and ALL having Dead Pixels in Live View, and those Dead Pixels show up in the Movies recorded.:ugh: I have never seen Nikon have troule with first bafches of Cameras that I can recall, and I might be jumping the Gun knowing me.
But Every since that first Pentax Camera, the istDL that I had, I WAS IMPRESSED with such an Under-Dog of a Camera maker of Pentax!
Yes Pentax is an under dog when considering Canikon are concerned.

Please read carefully the following: I heard it for myself that Pentax plans to HEAVILY push the Pentax K-5 hard, so they must be proud of it, and I saw it at youtube.com on the Pentax K-5 Video from Pentax, which is a Camera I will probably get, since the D7000 is of non interest until the fix the problems mentioned already, even then I probably wont be interested for the reason the Pentax has better Video in my Book.

I don't know how i am going to put my Kit togwther till i hear about the new Pentax flash introduce with K-5 and the 18-135mm Lens, and until the price goes down from the rediculous price to at least $1300. something, I will wait.

Tthe one thing that bugs me about the K-5 is the small Buffer, I hope a Firmware upgrade can fix that somewhat. Considering the Nikon's HUGE Buffer, up to 100 Shots, oh well, win some loose some. Besides, the K-5 HAS BRACKETING OPTIONS the d7000 doesn't have, which holds more interest to me anyway.

Just a comment on the buffer: That is based on physical limitations. While a firmware upgrade might be able to optimize the image processing and write speed a bit it will not be significant and probably have no measurable impact on the number of shots that can be buffered.

I would think in a crunch one could shoot jpeg at a lower resolution and thus obtain more shots at the max fps.

Pentax Lover,

Welcome - I joined yesterday. I'm like you in that I was drifting from Pentax until I got the goods on the K-5. Pentax is finally getting worthy of its historic reputation with this one.

This is of no big deal about d7k 100 images burst but .. i still remember in some post that shows that 100 image in burst burst mode of jpeg was only in 4mb size. and holding a shutter for more than 10 seconds is impractical. Don't you think that if K-5 sets at smaller size such as the d7k will also do the job ? (provided that sandisk extreme sdhc 30mb/s is in the slot)

It was good of you, though, to point out the part about his post belonging in another thread.
In deference to your concern about posts being in the proper place, I have moved this thread to its proper forum.

You do sound impulsive, I recommend a deep breath.

A misplaced comment here and there makes it no fun, so PLEASE READ CAREFULLY before commenting

YOU mentioned the buffer in the opening post of this thread... so Ole's post regarding the buffer was 100% properly placed...
