A Very Kool Video

YouTube - Pentax K-7 video

Damn Brit

It was pretty good.
But I did feel the WB left it looking a little bluish.

It was an excellent video.

...I was a little dissapointed to learn that it was not actual K-7 footage...

Very snazzy video. Looks like Hoya-Pentax isn't messing around. But when they claimed "High-quality image reproduction Iso 6400" at the end my B.S. detector went off bigtime. (Ha, ha maybe in broad daylight.) I'll believe that when I see it.

idk, considering that they're downsampling from 14.6 to 1.6mp, perhaps they've come up with a way to do so while keeping as much detail as possible that also obliterates noise.

Outdoor Enthusiast's Dream

Thanks for the video link Ben!

I wish Pentax would actually advertise the K-7 like that. I posted this in another thread a week (or so) ago...

"This is more of a suggestion... With the nicely compact all metal body, weather seal, cold resistance, faster FPS rate AND 1/8000th shutter speed Pentax really needs to market this camera in outdoor sports or National Geographic type magazines. The K-7 has extraordinary adventure travel potential. Couple that with the battery grip that accepts AA's and HD video and its a real no-brainer.

..and of course if you stumble across a clean SMC Pentax-A 20mm F2.8 in a street market in Dakar for $50 - you can just clip it on the front of your K-7 , no worries about it's compatibility. "

I haven't pre-ordered one, but I have started saving... Maybe after Christmas (or for Christmas!)

This guy either has built in shock absorbers in his ankles, or the IS system is fantastic

Video in the OP is a pretty awesome production, thanks for posting!
