Your way would function OK but would still be more limited.

I work with music synthesizers that have knobs for large parameter values and see it depends on the speed of the dial vs number on the screen -- one swipe of the knob could potentially jump by a large amount depending on the speed and distance the knob was spun.

Another option would be to simply allow one to program 100s 10s and 1s individually similar to the intervalometer. Very little scrolling (0-9). Could program with the 4 way pad and then allow one of the knobs to fine tune. IF you're setting a shutter time in the 100s of seconds then speed of programming wouldn't be an issue. Perhaps they could do both your way and my way -- provide a few extra long shutter speeds and then an X mode at the end that is programmable. There are a variety of ways to do this, but I'm looking at removing limitations in body vs pocketing another thing (to forget to bring) to the shoot.
Camera and synths need different interfaces. Synths aren't commonly used outdoors in the cold while wearing gloves, and lighted controls for synths don't have to consider preserving night vision.

Manual shutter works fine today. If 25 seconds is underexposed increase to the next breakpoint, 30 seconds. No one is clamoring for 26, 27, 28, 29 second settings. Jumps in the shutter speed are adequate when you're exposing for several minutes. I don't think any photographers would say "that 180 second photo looks a little underexposed, let me redo it with a 181 second shutter". If 180 is too short, 210 or 240 seems fine as the next step

Think about it. If shutter needs to be continuously variable, should the same be done with aperture and ISO? Do away with the 1/3 stops and allow us to set f/11.0, f/11.1, f/11.2, etc. ISO 6400 looks too noisy so I'll use ISO 6399. That seems like a user interface nightmare using buttons or knobs; we need thought-controlled cameras.

If you need 28.45437 seconds instead of 25 or 30, get an LX.

Increasing market share through selling a 50% more expensive product? Then the 645z must be a high volume camera
Why more expensive? Was a price already mentioned? Why should video making it that much more expensive, the tech is inside already. The only reason such feautures make other cameras THAT more expensive, is because they have other products they need to protect. You know yourself that 645z argument is silly I guess

Because nobody significant cares. They were clear that video is extremely low on their priority.

What is the answer why a Porsche 911 doesnt provide the same loading space as a truck?
They could easily do it. There are people who jump ship to the trucks. Nobody cares.

People need to grown up and understand that their needs might be irrelevant and certain makers are fine with the irrelevant crowd leaving.
It's just the same as the handful grandpas whining about the "crippled mount": Irrelevant.

A Porsche 911 is no truck and will not be made a truck.

And that is very good.
Bad comparison. In this case, you could add a feature WITHOUT changing or influencing any of the other features! Btw Im sure Porsche could built a truck and sell it, their SUVs are selling like hot chocolate

Yes it was.
AFAIK there's no 4K-capable "full frame" camera under $3000. For the K-1, this probably meant a different sensor (the 42MP one) and likely a beefier hardware (memory, writing speeds etc.).

At this time Pentax seems to have conceded leading video to other brands. Aside from the problem with audible IBIS movement noise, whatever unknown software/hardware issues they have, or feature substitutions they have made seem to be made. Endlessly arguing video is free does nothing. If it was 'free' they'd do it.

Either accept it or move on.

Accepted. K1 still looks gorgeous, hate the body design of the other brands, especially the mirrorless ones. Like we say in Germany: There is not an ultlimate "Eierlegendewollmilchsau", still sad

We all know what 4K video brought the legendary Samsung NX-1 Fuji is also omitting it from the X-pro2 though the chip is capable of it. If the K-1 Contains the socionext Milbeaut m-8m
It could do 30p 4k video. Then Pentax chose not to make use of it (nor 120p 1080p). Maybe the sensor won't allow it or only in crop mode.

Of course, the IMX094 is too slow for 4K and Milbeaut 8 can do nothing with that.

If it has the expected sensor and processor.

I didn't think I'd be, but if there's something special in the VF, I just might be... Can I dream about something to help with MF, and that they'd issue a silver special edition that would be accompanied by a newly reissued, silver, MF, HD Pentax-A 50mm F/1.2? That would be drool inducing.

Why would they call the processor PRIME IV then?

There is a see-through LCD, like in the most of modern DSLRs, I suppose.

Because it is an new processor, but maybe not a Milbeaut?
