I'd be extra interested in buying a camera that took three different aspect ratios of the same scene at once. I'd also like it if it took an uncropped at the same time. That would be rally useful and versatile.
That could be a new bracketing mode!

We have seen Pentax come out with models without AA filters, any possibility of seeing any models with a weak/no "hot filter" for those who like to do astrophotography?
Is this hot filter you're talking about the IR filter? Because that would be really nice

Question: Do you have any plan upgrade the flash system?
Such as,

* 2.4GHz radio wireless trigger for external flash with P-TTL and HSS support;
* Support multi-group flashes
* wirelessly configure the external flashes (power/zoom) for each group on camera;
* built-in flash on camera triggers external flash with HSS support;
* open source the wireless or P-TTL pin protocol, so third-party manufacturers can produce flash accessories easier, such as wireless trigger with P-TTL and HSS support;

Can we have an option to choose between mechanical and software SR in video mode in the k3?

What kind of DC motor are they using in the new lenses?

I would love to ask them a question about video mode, especially about RAW video, h.265 codec and so on.

as an owner of the o-fc1 wifi card: there is a linux on it, some functions are build-in the busybox command compilation, both components are GNU GPL licensed. where can we get the modified source code and will they accept source code patches?


p.s.: what's the name of the FF?

Yes I meant the IR filter in front of the sensor. I know some places do conversions but options are few and far between in Canada

My question - As I understand, new FF camera will have AF module of K-3. Is it real to make AF points not in the centre, but wider?And make special small joystick to choose it quickly.

That's not exactly a question, but I'm with ogl on this one - I'm also somewhat worried about using the APS-C AF instead of (at least) adapting it to 35mm. Adam, perhaps you could pass that to Ricoh?

As I understand from the Spanish site, those details about FF Pentax are simple assumptions of that poster, nothing based on some real information from Ricoh. And I don't believe that Pentax FF will have the same AF system of K-3. These cameras are two years apart. I hope that they make something new.

Which competitor do they plan to knock over first?
They're not really going to compete.

They're just going to flow around the other guys as if they're rocks in the river and laugh all the way to the ocean.

Now that Pentax has FF technology, will the market conditions be examined for compact mirrorless K-mount with FF sensor?
