I've taken a few videos on my K5 over the years. All accidentally.

I've never tried video--just not interested.

I have never used it, I know it is there, but if have always had a P&S with video mode. For years that was an old kodak 5MP bridge camera, but now I use a Q (actually my wife uses it)

You would need the arms of a gorilla to hold a K5 and a 70-200 soon for any length of time at arms length. The Q with light weight and resolution to do the same job is much more practical.

I never tried the video ability of my K5II, I like the facts that a picture can fix a moment instead of capturing the whole moment... It's also more friendly to scroll through memories that were well captured instead of looking at a bunch of video...

I'm still trying to get a handle on still pictures, let alone moving ones, lol.
Seriously, I have no use for the video mode so I just leave it alone.

There is a whole thread in the video section of this site demonizing people who don't get it that state-of-the-art video is critical. If you don't use it and don't see a need, how is Pentax ever going to move forward?

I have finally started experimenting with the (reportedly) terrible video on my K-3 as an element of expanded storytelling. It is not easy, but the results are intriguing.

if Camera can take movie like videos then those who make videocams can close shop

I've almost never used it on K-7 and so far never on K-3.


First I don't see a point... second - irrational, yeah I know - I always had the feeling like my camera may come to harm in the video mode.
Should I feel the need to make a video (family, etc.), I'd rather take a videocam for that.

I've had several cameras that can take video; I've yet to use video. I think my main problem with video, is how to view it. Silly as it sounds, can it be viewed on your computer like your stills? Guess I'd better dip into it, & see if I would like it.
