K-01 Videos

I didn't see a thread just for videos, so I decided to make one. Post away!
This was the last one that I shot. No tripod or anything like that, I was walking through the park and did some shooting on the way to a friend's house
and decided to cut it all together. Shot on the 40mm pancake lens.


Also, there is a cool little K-01 filmmaker group on vimeo.
Check it out

Nice video but it seems like it was having a hard time focusing and dealing with high contrast areas (Snow).

well

Well, bass3587, it's more of my fault than the camera's. It was all manual control. I'm sure it would've handled all of that without a hitch, but I was more interested in playing with the settings myself.

That's one of the reasons I think a lot of people are looking at the K-01 is for its video quality. I'm really debating on buying one before the sale ends tomorrow.

I love your snow video! Your film about your roommate cooking lunch was also great. Keep shooting those videos.

Thanks for watching! I just hope more people make and post videos. It'd be great to have a pentax filmmaker community.

Well I may join you soon I am cracking on whether or not to get one at the current prices. Perhaps a Christmas gift to myself.

Here is a fresh sample for my K-01 with the 40mm XS lens that comes with it.
Hand held manual focus. Recorded 1080p 24p

PSV/FCE - Ajax (3-2)

This already from 2th november, but put it together today. I actually messed up by the settings and put to much compression in it to get more footage. Taht is not smart. I would say always use the 3 star IQ and 30fps to get the most out off the little camera. This was 25fps and I think only 1 star.

All the goals from our hometeam:


I used K-01 and FA 31mm/f1.8 (set at f4) in Av-mode.

Good videos, interesting.

I have the K-01, I bought it for stills but I am slowly discovering how to use it for movies. I really love the potential for adding external stereo microphones.

I have various Pentax lenses but I am thinking I need a fast (lots of light gathering) medium zoom for general street photography, a lens that is not too physically big. I am wondering what lenses other people are using for this sort of work ?

Wide angle primes set to hyperfocal distance.

Thanks, I am aiming to get a good prime for stills. Are you also recommending that type of lens for general outdoor movies, street scenes, crowds, individuals - passive video viewing, not action movies ?

For street work where you may night have time to focus (even by a fast autofocus) it's nice to have a lens that is sharp from a reasonable range to infinity at a workable aperture, and wide angle primes are good for this. For video/movie type work, you should pick out a lens that has 8+ aperture blades as relatively circular out of focus point sources are an important part of 'the look.' With a good wide angle prime you can both capture a wide scene from a distance, and shoot close up for tight shots. "Normal view" is not especially common in cinematography relative to still photos.

Since the K01 does not allow for much auto adjustment after shooting starts, it's good to use a nice manual lens. The number of quality wide angle manual primes with 8+ blades is not super huge, and most of them will be good quality.

As for whether they'd be good for action movies, it depends on your style, but I would suspect having a fairly wide DoF would be useful for action scenes.

Thanks for you explanation, now I understand. I will make a point of getting a good wide angle prime lens.

My wording about action movies was confusing, sorry. I meant to say that action movies are not what I will be shooting.

I am mainly interested in static camera shots or scenes with movement them, so a wide angle will be appropriate there.

My other interest is in seated interviews, I have some fixed lenses that will cover that task.

Thanks again for taking the time to explain more.
