I hear you :) Still I think that 'funfactor' is there with K-3III. No camera or hybrid are perfect, you have to make it sing :)

If Id have the money, this would be the case. Since Iv bought K-3III and I have to prioriticeit will be 16-50 first. But that 21 will be on my shopping list. Sweet focal on FF as well as on aps-c. 16-50 should be one killer lens. Looks like it.

I'v tried AF-C with my SDM and DC lenses and it only does work with that touch focus. It is actually quite nice. What I'm waitng is just that ability to get AF-C working(after I can afford 16-50PLM) even if it would be slow. There are many places where I'd like MF instead also.


About that camcorder. I think that it is unbeatable, even with more advanced 'hybridcamera' in comparison. Untill 'that' limit. But this is why people still use camcorders and also that is why many proper videocamera are what they are.

K-3III does add 'fun factor', but it won't replace dedicated things.

I really don't think that there is any reason to postbone DFA21 launch. Autumn is good time for new releases. Ricoh will tell when it is ready. Too bad that there is no actual 'news' yet. But Let's see, october is just around the corner.

Thanks for update an explaining. I did have a look at to my eye it does nice job, not the fastest, but it is smooth. And this is important. Althou some more advanced hybrid cameras have adjustment, and all that, this is pretty nice, and what it more important...it does work.

---------- Post added 09-23-21 at 13:18 ----------


I agree. I have looked at several videos from youtube and they have used cameras like C70 and A7SIII. Sure, focus is fast, but when it does jump around, it does make it confusing. Fast, yes, but all over the screen.


This is big improvement all in all for pentax :)

Alright, I thought that there is not possible way to teeskentely it. Perhaps by changing how and there focusing happens, could help. Touch focus in af-s should be good to get things going fast. No af-c thou. Still it is much better that before(no AF-C at all). We have to wait for FW update :)

To me this looks okay. Not sure if you can accelerate AF speed, but there might be possibility of some tweaks.

I can’t help thinking about rumoured patent exchange with Panasonic and how it would affect new Pentax cameras video capability in future. When I’m shooting video with K-3III, it clearly is ‘good enough’ and you can get pretty nice material out of it. Just have to avoid quick panning and jerky movements (which is not that different from other brands).

I’m hoping for better sensor readout speed so that this jello could be degraded in video but also in ES mode to make it even more improved and useful.

But what could come out from Panasonic would be probably better bit depth and hopefully there will be good support for External stuff too(I’m going to buy external monitor next. I need it for my BMPCC4K too, even that big screen is not ideal for properly seeing your framing as well as focus. Same goes for K-3III. With this it is more or less a guess..)

But I like it. My initial thought of video with K-3III has not changed. It can and hopefully will be better thou as I have a feeling that we are not getting the best what we could from this camera already.

This one is 4K, and shot today with gimbal. So kind of 'hand held'. I tried to have fun with my microphone too. It is nice to explore with that also. Nothing serious, but I'm quite happy with this one. I did not do any PP other than cut the clips. I did use colour profile in the camera. I did actually like that easyness, althou I do also like to play around with tones and all that, but this was fun easy thing to do this like this.

I loaded this one in video to get good quality out of it. Enjoy!

Yeah, I did just come back from my weekend work gig. I did do a lot of video, but since that gimbal is so goo with BMPCC4K I did stick with that for video. I did take some documentation with K-3III while I was gimballing away, but my photo saldo is not very impressive...It is going to take a while to get back because there is so much editing to be made. I did shoot exhibitions, light art workshop, music, burlesque(3 hour show with 2 cam live stream) and some also presentations. Good times. I'll try to get back to single in as soon as I can.

New telephoto lens design patent

I know nothing. But this kind of news is good. There was rumours of Nikon also going after video things from Panasonic. Not sure what is going on there. BUT. This and Olympus rumour to me is very welcome. Pentax/ricoh know that this is something they dont have(we know that too). So why put a lot of effort to try to develope that when it can be bought and they can concentrate on the things they do very well.

But when. ?

Soon I hope. I really actually think that K-3III could be even better with video and all. Perhaps new stuff is coming, but they wanted to just get K-3III out as it is and give better FW update later to improve things they know they can develope later on.

Ricoh received from Panasonic video tech and from Olympus some other thech and they did get something from Pentax in patent exchange. Atleast based on recent rumour. This is where this thing refers to.

Even thou 645 FF does sound thrilling, new 645Z with optimised size(not much smaller)while keeping praised handling of older gen cameras, but with clear crisp OVF, and reliable focus with eye AF, as well as updated accelerator chip to get accurate colour and deep DR and all other goodies, and other accelerators to get performance up AND 100 MP crop sensor and full motoriced mirror, like K-3III but bigger and better to minimise slap, Perhaps with ibis and maybe with 4K(just to keep up with offerings). With 10000€ price.

Yes, it is more expensive that 100S is, but still quite good and you’ll get plenty for your money. And Ricoh won’t have to do 28-45 and other crop lenses from the scratch…that said, they would have old lenses to be redone, but Perhaps they want to go forward.

It would be logical that their goal is now set for the other things after so much has been done(K3-III is out as well as DA*16-50 PLM) no need for more developement with aps-c models, for now. I suppose that they will learn how these things will be received. I do also think that some things could still be further developed with K-3III, it could be that video will see some update. That Panasonic codec do sound interesting. Perhaps IS from Olympus has already been implemented?

But it is time for next models, like 645 and then FF. Ofcourse RG line too because it has big demand.
Lol

That is quite a bit of lines keep up with, as well as theta!

Yeah, I'll be haeding off tomorrow to do some video stuff(live stream and also social media event photo/video) over weekend. So it'll be busy couple of days. I'll have to say that my posting/commenting has been lacking and sorry about that, and it does seem to remain like that for the rest of the month.


I'm happy that all of the sudden there is 2 big gigs for video/photo as it has been quite dead with business lately. Looking forward to try my gimbal too. Seems to wok well with K-3III as well as with my BMPCC4k cameras.


I'll still stick through the rest of month, but will be posting then and there :) today will be busy packing everything up..

No, I did buy focus motor and focus lenses manual, from wheel in that gimbal. I don't have to touch lens unless I want to zoom, but that I will do propably between the shots. Gimbal is super effective IMO. I did just try it with BMPCC4K and AF is not as intutive through gimbal and USB, so I'll stick with focusmotor with that camera too.


I'd recommend this gimbal in a heart beat, but only with focus motor. in total of 680 it is not that big investment. Althou IF you are not going to use bigger cameras, then a bit smaller gimbal could do. This does carry BMPCC4k and 6K(pro too) with out problem(well I should buy extension bit for BMPCC use, but with my use so far I don't need the 'whole movement range), so it'll be good for many kind of work where I need it.

---------- Post added 09-15-21 at 14:11 ----------


I suppose that you used 16-50 PLM. I'm interested of which mode did you use and how did it go. Since this lens is in my mind for gimbal use and I'd like to 'trust' AF with it, since it should have AFC and face detection ect. perhaps it is video settings?

---------- Post added 09-15-21 at 14:23 ----------




Yes, indeed. I suppose that Ricoh wanted to give good alternative for MILC also with video in mind. SR(yes mechanical) is good, but it could be more effective. Why I bought gimbal. For handheld shots SR is okay and when you turn it off, you'll see how much it actually do help you.


4K quality is 'good enough' and for some instances you don't simply need more. just make sure that you use somethign to steady your shots(tripod and slider is very good combo(as well as gimbal is)) FHD quality is very good.


I did just look alternative, like Panasonic S5. I lookd couple of videos and I did notice ugly jelly(they were runnin on the street and trees went like / / /) Have a look of me running up hill and trees are like | * it does have jelly, but compared to that it is just as bad or even less. I thought that I can do better with K-3III so I won't have to use big for other system. That said, other systems do have their strenghts, what they do lack is mirror and this 6 letter word at front. Pentax.

Yes it does cost quite a bit, but so far I'v been happy. Need to explore more. I have proper video cameras for the kind of work when I need to step up, and going to uppgrade those too. This K-3III is nice run and gun and it does pretty good with photos too ;)

Here is one video with gimbal, I used DA40XS as well as DA*16-50 for this video. I was a bit pushing it, and Will keep on pushing. That said, I have pretty good feeling now of what I want to avoid, and good thing is that it can be avoided.


Yeah, I have good feeling about this now. Going to remove steel rings for neck strap and propably going to put microphone on the camera when I'm doing future shootings, pardon me for the sounds now...but here is the video.

This is very good, only drawback is that crane 2S don't recognice K-3III, so it for example record button can't be used on the gimbal, and I suppose that timelapsemodes are also quite challengin to be used? Also it does not seem to recognice USB-C as it does not recharge my K-3 when it is plugged in? So I'll see what that is all about.


But, I bought it mostly for gimbal use and I' can still push button on the camera to get rec on/off. I have focus motor(+168) and so far what I have played with it, it seems good and solid too. I can even put focus clamp so that I have minimum limit as well as longest focus, so I can prepare my shot better. As you have seen, it is hard to see that screen and having critical focus is difficult. I'm not saying this because of it is tilting or not, screen is just simply too small. i have touble with it every now and then anyway. (going to propably get my self external screen(which will double as recorder)).

Yeah,

Some clips coming, but perhaps next week. i'm quite busy this week...maybe a sneak peek tomorrow.. I'v shot video with DA55-300 WR and it is shaky even @ 55 mm. so yes, with out tripod it is challenging. Actuaaly one of the videos with field which is above, was shot with 'just' 55-300 but it was with tripod. I suppose 55-300 PLM being even better.

I have been trying out my crane 2S and it does very well thinking that I have not got any experience with gimbals before. Super steady and intuitive to use. Seems to work very well with K-3 III.

Nice! Looking forward to see more from that new 16-50plm

---------- Post added 09-13-21 at 20:23 ----------

I did unbox my zhiyui crane S2, obviously there is no control with lens, or camera. But I also bought focus motor.

But, my brief tryout did give to me the result that I was looking for. Very steady handheld material. Drawback is that I have so small screen now to work with. I’ll put it through places this week and also use it with BMPCC4K as it should give complete functionality with it actually. Should improve that material too.

I’m quite excited all in all.

edit: after 4 hour of play and all that, I'm still quite excited, but also quite stunned of how much of work there is to get things to work. Gimbal works just fine, focusing works just fine, me...well have to wrap my braing around this a bit more. Image quality is almost as good as it is on tripod. Balansing and making this thing work from bag -> shooting, is a wee a bit of work...I'll try 'field test' tomorrow. Obviously IF I want things smooth and I want that gimbal look, this is the way to go. Movie SR is not 'that' good, even if it is quite good.

Id also think that K-1 and its successor is enough for many things, as well as K-3III is. 645D would indeed fill my interest as first of all trying out MF but also colour from CCD is looking nice :) still it is a luxury thing, so itll cost some to be had just for pleasure. Even thou primes are coming closer :)
