Brook and Mabel made me smile! Ricoh carries shoes around too.
You named your dog "Ricoh"? That is cruel, simply cruel...branded at birth as spawn of the hociR...

No need. The K-1 is just a K-3ii that had too much to eat over the holidays.


Steve
Since the K-1 is only 16MP in crop mode, I think it's the much-delayed K-5III that folks called for when the K-3 came out - all the bells and whistles of the K-3, but with the 16MP sensor's dynamic range. They had to figure out how to adapt it to a bigger version of the sensor because the GRII is gobbling up all the 16MP APS-C chips.

What's your secret?...those little blue pills are damn expensive, even from Canada.
I was not exactly thinking along those lines, more to do with alimony payments... Trust me, whatever them pills cost do not compare

Careful, that's dangerously close to being photography related!

Eh, it's Happy K-1 Launch Party Week. Our long nightmare of non-fullframiness is finally over. I think the Mod will let me off with a mild *bonk*. I've had so many urges to post snarky, nonsensical things in the K-1 threads, that some K-1 was bound to leak out here.

...


WHAT DO PEOPLE HAVE AGAINST TYPING THE HYPHENS IN CAMERA NAMES??? IS - A SPECIAL CHARACTER OR SOMETHING??? DO WE NEED AN EMOJI FOR IT??? Sorry. It slipped out.

Sounds like this thread on an average day!

Did someone actually ask if it comes in pink? I wanted to, just to stir things up, but controlled the urge.

Meet Ricoh Shiner Bock the pup my hubby was duped into thinking would stay small. His excuse for bringing home dog number 3, "I rescued it, they said it would stay really small" , "It's Blue Heeler and Labrador Retriever."
Now would be the time to explain that hubby was never the one to rescue dogs, that was my children and I, as in every single time. Hubby was the one whining about it, soooo I guess this was a midlife crisis thing where he decided to actually have a pet ...... That I Would Have To Train Since He Did Not Know How. So I named the pup RICOH, hubby named it Shiner Bock so it has two names.... guess which one he comes to first, RICOH. muhahaha.
