Theres a video in FStoppers where they try to make the "afghanian test" in a canon and they completly fail.
You mean they duplicated what Heie did to his Pentax and they destroyed the Canon DSLR in the process? Oh God, yes, please, the link!!

No-one but Ricoh engineers can really answer that. Someone should ask them at CP+.

It seems dumb to me. They had it in K-3, everything was working fine.

Prepare USB3.0 and some new features for K-1II in 1,5 year.

Honestly - I used USB with my Pentax cameras several times from 2005. It seems to me 3-4 times.

maybe they think wireless tethering is the go, and beyond that who uses the usb port?

however I agree, if a usb port is included it should be usb3.

Yes, i think they hesitated to just throw it away like Apple, but they only downscaled it this time.

Thanks! Now I can actually start using the theory and do some silky water shots myself with my near-antique K-5!
Try it with the exact same subject. You will probably find that the traditional long exposure look is superior to stacking. Of course this just my opinion. I did this with a GR for a few waterfalls and, hands down, I prefered the looks of the long exposure. I wish I had kept both so I could show a comparison. Maybe someone else has done this with good results and can post samples and explain their technique.

Folks that tether. There are many applications of tethering, and USB3 offers a faster interface.
