Why?? Why not h.265 10bit?? Why not to make a gamma curve like everybody else?? they are 4 years late and not giving even a solid gamma curve, just a ¨flat¨ profile.

Im out...ill keep my K3 for timelapses, but Im selling the rest of the gear and getting a Xt4.

K3II + outstanding AF + 4k 60p 10bit 420 (10bit 422 via hdmi).

Yep, Im asking for a Fujifilm Xt3!! lol!!

Then, grab it all, and put inside some little cinema camera (like sony FS5) with clean 12bit SDI output, and launch Ricoh Cine with Tokinas or Pentax Ltd with official CineMod. Lol.

About video. In this new mirrorless war (despite if Pentax is going milc or not) the 4k 60p 10bit 4.2.2 its been the key factor.

Just want the FujiFilm XT3 with a K mount and KP dynamic range...maybe IBIS.I know is mirrorless but I also know that no matter how fantastic the new apsc camera could be, It will not have 4k 10bit 422 clean video output, and I need that, besides my FS5+Shogun Inferno.

Ask about video. Not only 4k video, but sdi out, or ProRes....even a Ricoh cinema camera, lol. More indi brands like Kinefinity, Blackmagic or AJA are doing well. Even RED makes it way. Ok, Im dreaming, but I would love to ask ¨why not??¨ since pro video is replacing pro photography as concept at a commercial level. Nowdays almost every pro phographer have to be a filmmaker in some way.

Just got the sony FS5 + Shogun Inferno a month ago. I think is the best option in the 4k-7k price range. I mean....4k 120p raw in burst mode....4k 60p raw or ProRes. Cant be more happy, lol. I think is an amazing and bargain camera. Got a Novaflex adapter for my DA lenses too. Expensive but amazing choice.

Pentax should do something like that, maybe with Ricoh brand, honoring some old Ricoh camcorders, you know....the KP sensor, 4k 60p internal, and a clear SDI out. That would be groundbreaking.

Lets keep dreaming....its almost free, lol.

K30 gone RAW video

Ok, im writing this because I have NO IDEA how to do it, but I think it is quite possible. I do mostly video, with different cameras, but for still and timelapse I use K3. I have a K30 with the aperture problem and theres no one who can repair it in my country (Argentina). So what I have is a camera that can use just lenses with aperture ring....or....a super 35mm sensor for experimental purpouse.

My idea is somehow put an SDI output to the K30...before de compression, and see if I can record it with an external recorder or even a PC. It shall give me RAW footage. The point of doing this is exclusively for fun, and for a ¨wake up Pentax and do some nice video¨ purpouse.

Any idea where can I start?? I already contact an electronic engenier to see if he can do something like that, but I would like to see what you guys think about it.


SFBW (sorry for bad english) and Cheers!

I have a very little film production company in Argentina. We have some canon 6D, 5DII, and 2 sony a6300. Ziyung gimbal, and lots of gear around. We are 4 filmmakers that work as a rock band, lol, but Im the only photographer, and main cinematographer, with a K3 and a (now broken) K30. We make any kind of job...social, TV programs, Online programs, fiction, music video, corporate films, commercials, etc. Luckly we have a lot of work.

In side by side comparision, the K3 always lose to the rest of our cameras. But in every day job, In muted color profile it do the trick. Its incredible how many times it have save us. We also adapt all my Pentax glass to video, since a lot of lenses have aperture ring.

I already suscribe to your channel, and I KNOW, that cinematography is a lot more of how you put the lights than wich camera you use. I would love to see some uploads.

Hope one day Pentax surprise us all with a apsc (s35) camera, with clean output for 4k 10bit 422, and a nice slow motion. Until that day, we have one of the most amazing ¨timelapse machines¨ ever made :) . Do it before I get Sony FS5 with an external recorder and sony raw uptdate, lol.

Cheers, and sorry for my english.

Kind of dissapointed...

I was hoping some video improvements....seems like Ricoh doesnt realize that photographers have been becoming filmmakers and cinematographers too, since the DSLR filmmaking revolution in 2009. Pentax bodies, and K mount have a HUGE potential for becoming mainstrean, just giving 4k and a clean hdmi output. The GH5 or Sonys doesnt have lenses, or just have lenses through adapters. Pentax have a whole line of amazing APSC (Super 35mm) lenses. Lots of Pentax K mount MF legacy lenses are adapted to GH5, Sonys and Canon (not that much nowdays*) every day.

I dont know how they are not seeing this. Is just crazy. Canikon is not seeing it neither, so the clock goes on and Pentax misses the oportunity to groundbreak the DSLR/MILC filmmaker world.

Pentax "KP" DSLR registered in Indonesia

Looks that its not a k3 succesor. And misteriously very expensive for an apsc body (ok, Nikon D500 is the exception, but is not a high end camera since the lack of top lcd screen). The only justification for that price is.....video?? :) . Last night I dream the KP was 4k, 1080p 120fps and clean hdmi output for a ninja flame and prores 422 color. If the K70 has the sony a6000 sensor...why the KP cant have the a6300 sensor, since a year has come since that sony came to life.

I know...its a dream. But its a nice dream.....Pentax groundbreaking DSLR filmmaking with all those cheap and amazing MF K mount legacy lenses.

Video orientated please. Tilt screen, jacks, and 4k...or maybe just fullHD at 30p max...but with raw video, like blackmagic pocket.

If I was Pentax...lol...Would make a K70 and a Ks3 for video, and make all the Ks line video orientated...with K mount and the amazing legacy lenses (used a lot by dslr filmmakers with adapters), could be a major jump. Look what dslr video made with GH4 and Samsung, or event the Sony A6300.

They always beat Nikon flagship, or reach the level at least.

A big splash...like a lot of mess in a positive way?? I think so. It would be amazing to see some pentax gear in the olimpics (even if K1 its not the camera for this, I know K3II can do the trick in daylight), or any movie.



Yes, is a true philosophy, but now they are using it for more sales.

In social networks, in the last 3 days I ve notice at least 4 jump ships from nikon to pentax. Yes. you read it well.

Are they gonna launch the Limited "3 amigos" with HD coating?? or maybe a whole new modern version??

We know K1 is a camera for photographers and we love it like that, but what are they plans for video?? Are they aware that a massive amount of dslr and mirrorless filmmakers are using Takumars and K-mount in their Canon or Sony cameras?? Are they thinking to step in the real professional movie camera market?? (this last one based on the RED camera rumour).

Yep. But this a Leica or Nikon DF kind of camera, with the Pentax awesomeness. There are tons of good movie cameras, dslr, mirrorles and specialized movie cameras are getting cheaper. But there is no camera as the K1 show it is in paper.

Maybe in the future we will se a A7s kind of Pentax, or maybe it is called RED camera with K mount :) .

I love the aesthetics of the K1. Its the kind of "beauty" that I like. The beauty of a Lamborghini Diablo, or a Walther P40. It looks tough, bad ass, and little. Its like a Joe Pesci kind of beauty, lol.

Its me or the new Ricoh marketing campaing for the Pentax K1 is just amazing???

Not only this. In the inteview they said they pay a lot of attention to users request. Maybe we (pentax forums) are kind of responsable of this camera (or they want us to think it).

The "we make photography cameras for real photographers needs" attitude is great. It inspires devotion to the brand, probably the most wanted response in a marketing campaing.

It just called my attention, since we always complain about Pentax marketing. I believe they listen that, and are making thing real good.

I would love to read what you think about this.

Sorry for my bad grammar again. Cheers from Argentina!!

Lol. Agree.

The only one pro photography that is not dying is the one that uses telephoto lenses. Since you cant do this pictures with an Iphone.

I believe that there will be more FF cameras in the future. This is just the begining.
