cool, thanks
how big are files? e.g. at 1080p30, 1 min --> 200MB?

Can someone explain the difference in this new video format that is different then K-5? Is it just format or also different in video-quality?

video format is different for sure: mpeg-2 on the k5, H.264 on the K01 (it also has mpeg-2 but I think it's only for lower-res options)

in any case, for me format is (nearly) irrelevant, all I care about is image quality, that's what I'm trying to find out about!

also: image quality doesn't depend so clearly on the codec used (e.g. the Canon 1DX has two codec options: H.264 that is normal quality, and mpeg-2 which is high quality)
