Maybe I'm trying to give Ricoh/Pentax a few ideas! WIth the K-S1 they are changing the external design. They should look internally as well.

Imagine that. Your nose accidentally selecting F1.4 with iso 256000 and a 20 second exposure during a bringt sunny day, for example. With a bit of luck that same nose can smell the burning sensor.

Or the future?

If you look at the GUI on Cell phones, Tablets, PC and what not, the GUI on DSLRs are stoneage. The same goes for connectivity.

I though DSLRs are for people who want to take better photos than they can with their phone and don't want to simulate effects, but rather create the effects.

Reminds me I had great fun at a Masquerade ball I was photographing where the nose on my mask kept putting the K5II into live view mode

Missing the point, are we?

The information that ends up in the EXIF exists in the camera prior to the image being captured. Camera reads such information as shutter speed, aperture setting, focal length, ISO setting and lots lots more. This information could be used in many ways, for example DOF calculations.

I guess you didnīt know that.
