K-r Features

Just thought I'd open a thread for users to highlight new features on the K-r they've found (as opposed to try and work out if your camera doesn't work!). I come from an entry level *istDL2 and although I'm missing a few (top LCD for one)... there are others to be more intrigued about.

1) Catch-In Focus option 20. on the Custom menu.

Holding the shutter release button fully and focusing on an area the subject will pass - the shutter is automagically released when the subject comes into focus.

Catch-in Focus is a old feature that comes from the film era. It is something only marginally usefull, because it is not 100% reliable. If you think you could catch-in your pet or a kid, it very much depends on the variables of light, object movement, object contrast, lens aperture etc. It is at least a fun approach to make something out of ordinary with the AF-engine. Typical Pentax take is lets make technology fun!

Maybe I'm a bit conservative but for me the most stunning feature of K-r is the image quality it delivers...

cheers,

Can't lie - I did think that with six FPS you're more likely to get atleast a one in six chance of hitting a fast moving subject in focus!... but none the less, it's a feature my ist didn't have.

The high ISO ability and the speed is what I was impressed with. The IQ seems about the same as that from my K200D.
