Tony Northrup K-S2 Tutorial

This might be of interest to some people. Tony Northrup has posted a free K-S2 tutorial on youtube. Might be a bit basic for some, but for others........

Its nice to see Pentax getting some love, but Tony clearly doesn't know of the features unique to Pentax bodies such as the green button. I think there were a dozen times during the video where Tony was scrolling some setting back to default, and I was muttering 'or just press the green button'. and no Tony, the green button is not some sort of video start button. No mention of the various program modes such as MTF which will select the optimal aperture for compliant lenses.

No mention of hyper program mode. No mention of built in intervalometer (try buying a canikon body in this price range with these features). Why would he recommend a 70-200mm lens for portraiture on a crop sensor body and not the 50-135? I would suggest it is because he is so conditioned to the canikon 'norm' that the lens probably doesn't register on his radar.

As I said, it's nice that Pentax is getting some attention (why the ks-2 and not the K-3II?) but he really should understand the product more deeply if the video is not to be seen as just a vehicle to flog his book/s
