shop: you mean the aar-ou one?
customer: no the aar-ou-one-ou..
shop: ehm, we only have the aar-ou-one-ou...one-ou
customer: ou ou
...
shop: have you thought of Leica S?

And this is consistent with what my university teacher (at Institute of Creative Photography) and a master printer keeps telling us. Plus one of his favourite phrases: laptop monitor is not a monitor but a laptop cover :lol:

@kjames5

Apparently, as per this article main browsers are now able to display Pro Photo RGB correctly (I'd question that, even different variations of monitors/browsers play role and vast majority of people have uncalibrated monitors, or they check pictures on mobile devices where nothing matters), but if, for some reason Facebook upload had stripped the profile from the pictures than you stand no change and we all here understand it and do not blame you for it.

Looking forward to seeing more of your pictures

Keep up the good work

CP+ 2018 Interview Question Suggestions

Not sure if already asked, but:

1. Are you working on larger frame coverage of PDAF? Currently the K-1 coverage and especially the 645Z are very limited to the center area. Other manufacturers offer much better coverage.

2. Are you planning to supply lens profiles for all current Pentax lenses for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop applications? (including e.g. FA 35/2.0 etc)

3. Would you be open to officially supporting and sponsoring a 'World Pentax Day'? The 'World Pentax Day' was created by Pentax community and is now an established event with solid participation of photographers. By cooperating with the organizers Ricoh/Pentax could achieve great marketing results with limited costs. (E.g. Handing over branded cards with something like 'Smile. You have been captured by Pentax.' could empower street photographers to take pictures and spread promotion on a mass scale)

* Adam, this is by no means an attempt to interfere in your great event! :)

how long can they produce this thing if the 36MP chip is no longer manufactured? do they have a warehouse full or will this cover just a short period of time??

I think it's time for them to stop the naming/model confusion of potential buyers. Stick to policy, I don't mind seeing K-1 IX if it means 8 solid improvements ahead. If instead there were 8 new model names including changes in first letter, position or existence of dash, length and sequence of digit, I'd be even more confused that looking at the lens lines. For an outsider, Ricoh/Pentax doesn't know what they want. Sticking to the existing and iterating would mean more certainty for everyone

I think RICOH CR should get paid by Czech Republic - the official travel site (official state tourism board) for this viral upheaval and raised interest in everything Czech... Let's hope it's not remembered as the Big Czech Hoax (BCH) after a couple of weeks :)

As one of the Czechs on this forum I have to admit that this thread page is potentially the funniest I've ever read on any forum. Despite discussing demise of one of the greatest cameras ever.
Will ask my friends to Czech it out :)

Pentax K-3 III in Sep-2018

I am not an engineer so this is just my wild guess but I reckon there is plenty of space in battery packs for an ssd interface and storage. Plus it would give you options of various sizes.

I am not talking about another SD card slot, but a proper and fast dedicated SSD memory interface with super fast write speeds.

I could see Battery packs with memory or memory compartments. I think the camera bodies are way too crammed already.

Financial Results:FY2018/03

Not very nice reading...
Sales in the Other segment in Americas down by 56% and Europe 28%, and interesting to see the proportion of these regions to the domestic market and the rest of Overseas. Basically, America is half the size of Europe market, which is 1/20 of Japanese market... Unclear how much of this is digital cameras.

But this one is worrying (though not surprising given the lack of news and new products from Ricoh):
"Sales in the Other segment increased by 5.0% to 44.9 billion as compared to the previous corresponding period. Though income and profit in optical equipment business mainly increased, it was offset by the decrease in income and profit in the camera business due to the decrease in amounts of sales of digital cameras. As a result, operating profit in the Other segment decreased by 2.5 billion as compared to the previous corresponding period to 2.0 million of loss. "

How do you know this? Are you member of the development or production team? Or have you seen and tested the optical formula, glass, focusing, coating?

I think it is very premature to panic about this lens as nobody outside Ricoh has seen a glimpse of it
