I wonder if it will be able to use the higher speeds of UHS-1 cards, something the K5 can't do. It would sure make things go faster if it could clear its buffer faster. Also, I have to wonder if it will have the same bit depth as the K5.
The K30 burst is predicted to be 4 FPS and the K-01 is at 6 FPS with 12 bit. This will be an interesting specification to see.

Certain Forum mods have suggested/implied/speculated/hinted that the 4 fps spec is incorrect/misleading/unsubstantiated/mis-typed/whatever. The correct number, according to a usually-reliable source is 6 fps.

I know full well that this is all fuzzy, Blue, and I'm watching it as well. "Retro" is all in fashion but four frames per second is a bit too retro for me, too ....

It looks like a DA 18-55mm WR to me and it says it is bundled with such and has it mounted in the pic.


Oh, ok then, point rescinded, I only saw the initial fuzzy cap, and couldn't make out the blue 'WR' well, although the UK Amazon caps make no mention of the WR lens.



If it hits the US at $800, with the WR lens, then it's a decent deal.

Yes that scanned WR bundle is for France only thus far, where it is illegal to say something is "tropicalized" but require another purchase. The listed UK bundles were clearly not WR.

Looks good to me. If this is the Kr replacement I can't wait to see the k5 replacement!

was telling the guy that the a57 is better than a37...i did not buy the sony a57/a37 because it is not waterproof....would have bought the a77 but the jpeg's have a artefacting in them.... so considering the k30, but only if the videoformat is avchd, and it has a flip out screen!!! my fingers are crossed
I certainly hope they won't use AVCHD with 28 Mbit/s limit.... why would you want that even?

Maybe, but the K-r is allready faster with 6fps. This is a midlevel camera, positioned between K-5 and K-r, right?
So why make it even slower then the K-7?

4 f/s in RAW fair enough, but not in JPEG ...

Bear in mind that the K-r had to pump out "only" 12x6 = 72MP per second, whereas the K-30 supposedly pumps out 16x4 = 64MP per second. Still not the same bandwidth, but much closer.

Anyway, I think this is mostly a minor issue when you consider the target audience of the K-30.

It looks really good when sprayed by water. They should use this pic for marketing, they should get a similar for K-5.

Great image, VD, the first I've seen of a "full frontal" K30, too!

A sensual picture that, exhibiting that just-out-of-the-shower look.
