Hello from Sasha

Hi guys!

I'm fairly young italian guy trying to figure out which system to buy to start shooting with reflex and since the presentation of this K-70 I'm now considering also Pentax versus that Canon 760D. I'm used to shoot video with my Panasonic HC-x900, but this would be my first reflex... The "last one" I have in house is an old Minolta Dynax 8000i

I'm also finishing the development (I'm a student of electronic engineering) of an Arduino based controller for a 3-axis DIY slider and head motorized with stepper motors

See you around!

Hello from Sasha

Hello to you Sasha. Welcome to the Pentax forums. It looks like you have a few decisions to make with your future camera gear. Any help you may need is only a question away. Good luck.

welcome to the family There seems to be a lot of interest in the K70 right now but at this point I think it's still a bit of an unknown, have you also considered the K-S2 ? seems to be quite nice and ppl seem to be happy with it..

Thank you ^_^ I saw that, and this is probably already a great camera but, even if still I have that HC-x900, it won't hurt if I'll be able to use my DSLR as a second camera for video... Plus, they had so much features (better SR, better low light performance (?), better sensor, 14 bit RAW...) into that K-70... I just have to wait for its release

@Entish1: I'll leave answering to you question to people better trained than me
Even I walked in here just 1 day ago... Welcome from me!

ahahahah it's comprensible
Pentax too should be happy I suppose

P.S.: English is not my first language and I already saw myself make some mistakes... bad bad guy, I should've studied more
Problem is I haven't been able to find a way to modify my reply after it is submitted... How can I do?

Don't worry your English is vastly superior to my non existent Italian.

And your totally forgiven as your in my second most favourite city in the world... the first being Italian also, which is Venice, just because it has such beautiful light there.

Something I really wanted to do but haven't done yet is start visiting as tourist this city...
Never done enough and if you have already been here for a week you probably visited as much Rome as me

Aye, maybe that changes once you get a few more posts under your belt, you being the new boy and all.
