Please, in the next K-7 firmware update, take the 99 exposure limit off of interval shooting. For good time-lapse video this is not nearly enough!
I agree!! It's not nearly enough, and should be completely easy to fix. Also, I wish you could start the interval shooting with the 2 or 10 second delays, which also shouldn't be hard to do.

Just buy everything from B+H, it'll be there in 2 days.
the cost of the K7 from B+H, plus shipping, plus customs charges, is more than if i buy it locally from JB Hi Fi

not that it matters anymore.. got the 18-55WR kit..


Dear pentax. DA L 55-300 as a seperate lens plz.

I love the concept of the k-x and i think only thing that has to be done is good marketing of this idea.

So my wishlist is:

- 12 mpx sensor
- double PRIME II engine ( for faster continous and better buffer )
- dual slot ( CF + SD )
- 6 to 7 fps
- Greatlly weather resistant
- with a body that size is about k10d.
- All the features of the K7

And thats what i would call a flagship model. Totally top notch features..

Second of my wishlist is something probably that would never come true.. i dream of a waterproof dslr with mounted something about the size of 21mm ltd fix focal lens.

I'm curious why you want an L lens for this, just a weight issue? I would prefer a WR 55-300.

personally, having previously owned the 55-300 (sold it during my brief delusional wandering into the 4/3 system and their nice 70-300), I would much prefer an L version of the 55-300...but that is because I recently purchased the 50-135 so I think the cheaper L version would do for the amount of use. (I actually think the best route for pentax would have been to ditch the 50-200, compact as it is, and have only the L and a WR version of the 55-300, which is a significant upgrade to the 50-200, size aside).

So, for my dear pentax comment...please make a K-x 2 lens kit with the 55-300 L available!

A file numbering system that has 5 numbers instead of 4. Having had yet another holiday where my entire file system was screwed when my camera clocked itself and I had to use a non-empty SD card, I can only continue to swear at a company that cannot keep count of shutter actuations across multiple cards when one has been clocked and one has not.

Rather than ask for a camera that can KEEP COUNT when it clocks, how about one that clocks itself less often so this pathetic weakness doesn't come up so often?

I camo camera body as well as lenses for wide life photograph. That would be great as often such a colour camera would be usefull as one often can get very close to game using camo clothing and with a camera that has a camo pattern with a tele lens the same would make wild life photography with shorter telephoto lenses a breeze, sort of hunting with a camera instead of a rifle.

So, to satisfy us both how about dear pentax, do away with the current 55-300 and make both the L version and yet announced *cross fingers* WR version.

Oh and my last post a couple back, I meant to ask for a K-x 2 lens kit with the 55-300 L in WHITE PLEASE! (not the lens in white, just make that a kit!)

I think they should fase out pvc plastics, mercury and other materals, and contribute to wildlife fund. It would boost thier wilderness photograhy cred. The only other company even attemting this olympus. It would be good press.

Pentax should consider adding a rotate CCD function, clockwise and counter clockwise for both northern and southern astronomical photography users.

No telescope required to piggy back on, just a slow rotate which the K7 can now do.
Provide a variable rate of rotation so it will cover any part of the sky and any lens. Its up to the user to find the correct rate for his/her lens and location specific circumstance.

Name one other camera that could then produce clean astronomical photographs from a fixed mount with near no post processing.

Zero competition and something that the others would not be able to reproduce.

If you want to get fancy, you could even sample first and then calculate a correct compensation vector or even go to live view and use a two reference points and do it live.

$2000 tracking telescope scope plus Canon or Nikon piggy back mounted to it etc

Or one Pentax K7 leaned off a car with a block of wood to get the right part of the sky and do the same job.

When you've got it, flaunt it.

Please stop trying to make camera bodies smaller. Professional camera bodies should be larger than entry level to provide balance to the larger lenses used by professionals. Think more like Nikon d700, not Canon Rebel.

If you want to be taken seriously by professionals you need to make a body up to the challenge.
