I think the next Pentax DSLR should have a robust video mode... something like the canon maybe even better. I know most on this forum could not agree with me... I see a good market for it for Pentax, because they are the only camera company left that makes weather sealed lenses and is compatible with a huge catalog of legacy glass. I see the weather sealing a huge advantage for nature film makers. I could see this as a great nitch for Pentax no one else can offer. Look what Panasonic did the there GH series film makers love that little camera, why can Pentax do that with their K5 series.

Sure, HD DSLR is a booming business. Many company use DSLR shooting MV, short film, commerical ,etc..
and yes, I think the video feature on Pentax is behind other brand.

Well that would be great. Limiting is the format for video, lack of AF and slow processing. More advanced video-modes would be great. FullHD with hi-speed framerate. I think it is also time to introduce FullHDwide 2560x1080 pixels. This is the movie format and TV screens for that format are going to be sold world wide on masses in the coming years.
