Yes, they are flash movies. The K-7 5.2 fps demonstration is nice! Also, you can tell a subtle difference in the sound. The k20d has a bit more "pop" to it.

Watched the movie clips of the shutter noise of the K-7 and K20D. I'm now convinced the K-7 shutter noise is much quieter.

What's even more amazing are the two videos comparing the K-7's focusing speed to the K20D. It's like night and day; the K-7 seemed at least 3 times faster, with no hunting! The K20D seemed pitiful in comparison.

Can't wait for my K-7 to arrive!!!

I wonder if that is usable when viewing through the eyepiece.

Yes, it is. I think it's using the metering scale...

It is very odd that in section 2 they compare with older cameras that are not even in the same class. 450D?!, D80!? k100D?! They should be comparing with the 50D, and the D300!

They're just comparing the sizes
