Homepage post incoming.
Well I do think for sure it is a mistake in the specsheet, because in the 'marketing' text they announce the new better AF system with the new SAFOX IX+ name.

Burst shooting is with 7FPS(as known right now), 40 shots in buffer in JPEG(Hi) and 8 in RAW(DNG), don't know for PEF
And a interval shooting till 99 shots (per day?)
That's not very credible, the K-r has a 12 frame RAW buffer (the K-7 buffers 15 frames in RAW, I think).

And the K-r does 999 frames in interval shooting.

Something's amiss.

The top LCD doesn't look like it can support ISOs with 6 digits, as 51,200 would require.

The metering mode selector (below the Mode dial) seems to have 3 clearly visible modes visible - spot, center-weighted, matrix - and what appears to be a 4th mode that been heavily blurred...

Things that make you go hmmmm....

I don't think that is a blurred mode, it just looks like the angles in the camera body reflecting light. I'm not holding my breath on anything till Monday.

Yep it sounds strange, I do hope those 'little' specs thingies will be updated soon with more information.
I think about the RAW buffer that it is for the 14bit RAW's, and I don't think that the buffer is any smaller than that of the K-7 for 12bit RAW's(if possible...).

About the interval shooting, I don't know if it is a typo or not.

Maybe it's the haze or fungus.

ISO Range 80-51200 that could be true since we received the same information. However, in our source, they mention about 22 fps on jpeg with electronic shutter.

The curious thing is about price right after the release of Nikon D7000.

I think they'd just have it reading "512" or "256" instead, which will be enough to tell you.

I don't think it's another setting. I think it's a highlight where upward curve of the top dock to house the prism is catching the light. If you look in front of the dial, there's a very similar highlight.

I didn't translate the number


And nothing about a 22fps mode with electric shutter in JPEG mode in this brochure(aka factsheet)

QuoteOriginally posted by Priyantha Bleeker Quote
For video mode:

Capturing Full-HD movies for max 25 minutes or 4 GB limit.
There is a connection for a external Stereo mic

Correction for the exposure for video
Digital preview and eletronic meter(for if the picture/move is straight, don't know the right English word for it )

I did translate the correction for exposure wrong I am afraid It is Exposure bracketing says google translate...
