You don't know how to re-size an image?

We just went through all this lol. I explained that isn't my pic but just a reference to another page. The only way I could scale it down is if I saved the image to my computer, scaled it down then uploaded here to my pentax forums album. But it isn't my property so I dunno if that would be cool or not.

Hehe, from now on if you want a Pentax lens at a 50% discount, they cut it in half and give you one half.

Use image wide tags

When using image wide tags, it will size it to fit. Then the image can be clicked on to enlarge by scrolling over it and clicking.



Using Image Wide tags.

The image posted is a hotlink to an image on the Wikimedia Commons. For this image, what the OP could do is specify a resolution within the image file itself using the thumbnail link: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/91/Flickr_pentax_K5_2_...C-BY-SA%29.jpg. To get an image of an arbitrary size, replace the "1280px" part of the URL with any value up to the full width of the image, such as "800px". The image description page is here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flickr_pentax_K5_2_(CC-BY-SA).jpg.

Interesting! Notice how much of the body thickness extends behind the "film (sensor) plane." With a 35mm film camera the film was within 1/8-1/4" of the back camera surface. This looks like about 3/4" from the sensor surface to the back of the LCD. Looks like the mounting for shake reduction makes that thickness more necessary. No wonder the camera overall shape changed so much from the MX-LX days, as that shape wouldn't work as well with such a thick body. The shake reduction also means the Pentax K-01 would have a greater thickness than a non-SR model even if it didn't use K-mount.
Leica tried to keep the same basic shape as their film cameras with the M9, and managed to add only about 1/4" to the body thickness. The M9 has no shake-reduction, but with their fast lenses and mainly wide-angle lens emphasis, it isn't as important. I hand-hold to 1/8 sec quite well without it, but do appreciate the K-5 for including it.
