I would hardly call that mastery.

Like with any other art, If you think there's no room for improvement from education or other training or criticism, and you believe yourself has mastered the art, then you have stopped progressing, and will likely get no better than where you are.

It's definitely good, but all pretty much one style. Again, if you think there isn't room for improvement, then you won't ever improve... I wouldn't call her a 'master of photography' until I can see how she can handle other scenes. Also, they all looked pretty heavily PP'ed to me... Hard to say exactly the quality of what's coming directly out of the camera.

Also, picking ONE phtographer as an example of why we don't need education is dumb. Not everyone that picks up a camera will learn that quickly, and learn by themselves, just as their are plenty of people who can learn how to write, or Calculus, just by doing.

It's also unfair to say that if you can't figure it out yourself, you have no way of becoming 'professional'

People learn different things in different ways. It shows a lack of understanding of the learning process to think we don't need education in photography.

Doesn't change the fact that there are classes.

BTW would you hire a mechanic that learned from youtube or one that took classes and certified?

Did you read the thread? I have said many times I want to see a top of a line flagship FF first.

Right, but I never found a digital I could like until Leica introduced the M9, which has no AF, SR, or automation... And it is still my preferred digital. There is a (small) market who don't like all those things.

No, I did not go read whole 4 pages about yet another FF idea.
And don't get me wrong, I would like a minimalist FF, or a mirrorless FF (as a successor to the K-01). But the reaction of the photography community (even users from other brands) would still be bonkers

The minimalist FF dSLR sort of depends on there being a successful flagship, all-the-bells-and-whistles, you-can't-afford-it FF dSLR first, to recover the investment of going with the FF sensor. After sales of the fancy expensive model peaks, derivative, less-expensive models can be introduced, with the MF minimalist model coming out last; or, next-to-last, as the "retro" styled MF minimalist can follow everything else.

Ricoh is a business not a charity so forget the K1000d.

Yes, Ricoh is a business; if there is a demand they will try to fill it. If they can do it without major development expense (e.g., deleting features from existing product) there is no reason not to, if the market is there.

Yeah, because no legitimate business has ever donated anything as part of a marketing plan before...

For the record, again, FF in this regard is definitley not viable. At this point, though, if they did strip out a camera and use the K-X or K-5 sensor, cost would be incredibly low.

Plus, there's an advantage of getting students started on Pentax, don't you think? If they're used to Pentax and learned to like them, don't you think they might look at the higher end ones to buy for themselves?

It will cost more in R&D to remove existing features than to keep them.
To make an all manual DSLR cheap they will need to re-use as much as possible from a full featured high volume camera. Maybe by using a K-500 with the mode dial fixed to M-mode and AF motor removed they can produce a cheap all manual DSLR, but this camera will most likely be more expensive than the full featured K-500 as it will be produced in low volume.

A fully manual camera forces the student to learn how to use a slr camera.. otherwise they just leave it on auto.. might as well get point and shoot. Lots of cheap FF glass out there also.
Is that really the issue, seriously? Photography students these days just don't have the discipline and can't be trusted to turn the little dial from "Auto" or "SCN" to something more challenging? If that's really it, then there could still be a K-500 with those automatic modes disabled in the firmware. I wouldn't miss them, and it would be a heck of a lot cheaper than developing a special new FF camera.

And yes... There is lots of cheap old FF glass out there that also works on a K-500. If cheapness is a serious goal, then the whole idea of starting with a FF sensor that costs several hundred dollars by itself just seems perverse.
