I found a 'decent' camera for shooting pentax glass! :P

After seeing some examples of other people using one on the forum I figured I'd try out an emount camera again, and I'm pretty satified with my experience with FA* glass, and with the 20mm A glass I have too.

Feature/setupwise the fs5 is pretty easy to rig up too, and the weight is about the same as a gripped K-1 or a 645Z so I can still handhold it.

I'll make some proper videos soon

I always thought the power zoom feature on certain pentax zoom lenses would be useful for videography, does the mount adapter support it?

The old PZ lenses always seemed pretty loud to me.

Id be worried about zooming being audible during filming.

Unfortunately nobody has made a 'smart' E-mount to K/KAF mount adapter. Metabones could probably make one, but I bet their PM/biz people dont see a market for it. With some cleverness I bet you could make an arduino do the things and slap it in a 3d printed casing, but thats a future project.

not much of a problem if you use a shock mounted external microphone with the appropriate pattern for noise rejection.

Last time I did a video for a photo studio shoot, my colleague and I were miced up with a pair of wireless lavalier mics, they only had one boom mic to pick up ambient sound. No on camera mics were used.
