I heard there is an ignore function here. While I am extremely reluctant to put anyone on ignore, you are getting dangerously close to ending up in that bin. Very tiresome negativity.

K-1 FF Pixel Shift--Disrupting the Status Quo?

Yet, that is exactly how I intend to use it if I get one. It is a matter of priorities, as there are others things in my life that are more worthwhile to me than several hundred hours per year spent at the computer doing PP. As someone said above, different strokes for different folks.

I am totally with you here, bro :) I do not have the interest, the energy or the time to spend hours after hours at the computer after the fact. What comes out of the camera, that's it, in my case.

Then again, I am no pro and have zero aspirations to win photo contests. Just a keen hobbyist who has a day job that is already demanding and challenging enough. So yes, I am one of them despicable jpg people :lol:

My feature request list for the second gen Pentax FF

1) I do not see AA batteries as an important thing. Releasing another grip with AA capability would be enough but I wouldn't need it.
2) Video length is not an issue for me.
3) I almost never use any flash, built-in or otherwise. Much prefer to have built-in GPS and WIFI.
4) This would be nice in the next model. 120p full HD also for slow motion.
5) Yes for this one.

In the next model I would like to see the possibility to fully use Pentax 645 lenses, i.e. an AW adapter without crippling.
I would also like to see cold temperature capabilities improved....-10 C doesn't quite always cut it here.
For time lapse, I'd really want an implementation where neither the mirror or the mechnical shutter needs to move.

I would never buy a Mac for anything. Terrible quality/price ratio. Desktop computers I always build from components by myself. It is really easy to do. Top notch parts, fabulous quality for price.

Seems like an absolute winner! Without a question a game changer regarding the feature set and price point.

Video features lacking? I do not give a hoot. The only types of video that I would care about are time lapse 4K and very high frame rate full HD that allows proper slow motion (i.e. 100-250 frames per second). This camera serves the former need and no dslr in it's class serves the latter. Different tools for different jobs.

Thanks! It used to be goalies mostly but now our junior program has started to churn out pretty promising dmen and forwards too (R. Ristolainen in Buffalo, S. Vatanen in Anaheim, O. Määttä in Pitsburgh and the yet undrafted P. Laine & J. Puljujärvi).

I used to live in Toronto for a couple years so I got to see a couple NHL games...and I was there to see the World Cup of Hockey semis and final in 2004, in person :)

I see :) Because of the certainty, I assume you know more than most of us here.

If they work well, the handheld pixel shift & hdr are really something else! Still also hoping for faster implementation of the individual shots in pixel shift, thus reducing artifacts in scenes with some movement.

These goodies aren't confirmed yet, though. So I will wait until the official takeoff before rejoicing.

If you do a lot of time lapse, you will easily run the shutter count up to 100 000 or much more. For example, a time lapse video of one minute duration played back at 25 frames per second consists of 1500 frames. And that is just one single video clip and only one minute :-)

K-1 Specs

Even this spec list, not yet containing the surprise goodies, makes me think that I will get this camera at some point. Especially as the launch price isn't very high, meaning that the camera will be affordable in my point of view (probably will drop under 2000 euros given some time).

Important good things are the sensor, new and improved shake reduction and autofocus, the tilting lcd screen, built-in GPS and wifi, pixel shift, 4K time lapse, WR (a given, but important anyway) and the new durable shutter unit (especially important for time lapse use).

Things that mean zero to me: burst rate, sync speed. Video capabilities don't mean much to me either so those specs are easily sufficient (time lapse is more important).

Negative aspects are battery life and usb 2.

That one I never saw. So my response is based on the edited post.

In general, I dislike the number of persistent, negative whiners here and on other forums.

To make things clear, also in real life I will tell people like that to get the **** out. Sorry for being such a blunt personality but that kind of people can go somewhere else to piss on someone else's parade.

I disagree. Whiny trolls reap what they sow. And what kenspo said wasn't very rude at all.

I see at least one: Uluru here = Zvonimir Tosic on the other forum.

Also a hint to Nicolas06: like you, english is not my native language and therefore I try be careful when writing messages here. Misunderstanding arises so very easily, especially things like message tone are sometimes hard to interpret.
