YouTube - Pentax K7 video review: first look

YouTube - PENTAX K-7 Introduction

im very sorry if these have been posted already, i did not see them
Thanks for those video previews,the K 7 looks like a winner to me, Like others, I'd like to see results on noise at high ISOs too. If I can get around $400 for my barely used k200d body, it might be worth the down payment on this baby.

DAMMIT! How can I continue to hate the fact they stuffed video into this "tiny" body when the still photography specs and features coupled with the MSRP are so damned impressive?!

Amazon has the K-7 ready for pre-order

I keep telling myself not to rush and buy it now as I have done in the past with other cameras before all the reviews are in but it's damn tempting. $1299 is too much right now and a little beyond my budget but you other guys can buy one and post your test shots here, I'm not stopping you.

What if it turns out you LIKE to take small artistic videos, compile them, add music, and force your family and friends to watch!

This could revive the cerimonial Vacation Slide Night from the 70's.

For the love of all that is good in the world, be carefull!

Thankfully Pentax has a lock button on the mode dial.

Hmmm, I like the idea of bringing back "Slide Night" all the fun like the old days except we are the generation without the need for clumsy movie screens and boxes of Kodak Kodachrome slides in a circular tray. I'm waiting for the 20" X 30" digital photo frame to come out and be less than $200.

I also havent heard what i need to in order to persuade me.

The big three for me are noise, shutter sound (promising), and probably its effectiveness with wireless pttl and such.

But knowing what it would look like with my 16-50 stuck on is making my tummy rumble.
