Hey look a photo!

Good one guys. You've gone and scared all the girls away with such a silly thread.



Go and Take Photos!

Yes, but the DoF is not shallow enough and it's not a FF shot.
We know APS-C will always outsell FF in absolute sales but that isn't the only aspect determining viability for a photographic manufacturer. It's also a lifestyle option, or the FF cameras nowadays wouldn't be as successful as they are. We don't have to look too far from what Pentax is offering in the smaller dMF niche market and how that's faring for the company financially.
Fixed that for him.



Sorry Tromboads, hope you don't mind!

Late to the party as always
Anyways, just want to express my happiness to see Pentax stepping up in the right direction.

For me, there are times when small sensors shine (I'm an Olympus m4/3rd fan too), but as a film photographer, there are times when only FF (or bigger) can give me the satisfaction in shooting.

A Pentax (and Ricoh) -quality full-frame camera would swim well with its competitors, and will pull quite a bit of ex-Pentax user base back into the fold.

Good move, and it's about time.

Use photoshop to make a gradient darkening towards the center of the frame around the girl. Fill in the area around the girl to make sure she doesn't get blurred. Then you use that mask and apply lens blur. That's how I do it in photoshop at least.

Hahahahah If i wanted shallow depth of field tho, I just would have shot myself. In the head. With a gun. :P Still nice use of photoshop :P

Needless to say Full Frame Shmool Brame! Photos rock and arguments over crop factors don't

I did it the rough and dirty way - duplicate layer, which I blurred, then erased with a soft eraser brush (in one diagonal sweep) to selectively reveal the original layer underneath.

From the FOV and the thin DOF, looks like a medium format shot. A good excuse for the 645D!

I'll have to mess with that. Thanks kindly!

That sounds a lot less complicated than what I thought it would be.. Cheers for the info!

The D600 and soon the 6D are going to bleed Pentax dry IMHO. They are both offered at prices that make the switch from Pentax affordable.Check the ,marketplace and see how many Pentaxians are hitting the exits. I think even if a Pentax FX camera comes soon, they'll never get these people back into the fold.

In business it's always cheaper to keep a client than to find a new one.

JMHO
I have looked at the specs for the 6D and do not think it is that big of a deal it has many of the things that are already Pentax complaints like 11 focus points and 180 sync speed it also has the 4000 max shutter speed. I do not believe it will hurt anyone the Nikon D600 is more of a threat and do not see it really killing the APS-C market since there are problems with the sensor and oil spots.

I don't think that Adam is an official Pentax representative is he? So until THEY announce a FF it doesn't count for mine.

I've all but given up on them anyway as you can see from my signature.
