Why A BIG Camera When The Latest Smart Phones Are So Capable?
Posted By mauri
Replies: 120

Phones are just the latest in the line of point and shoot cameras which started with cameras like the Kodak Brownie. Mainly suited for social photography then.

Real cameras are for people who take pride in their photography and want to expand their horizons. And of course for professionals.

And that's how it's gonna stay for quite a long time, no matter shrinking or expanding markets.

I always find it somewhat funny to watch American reality shows with blurred out trademarks. Not very realistic.

If you hit a burglar over the head with the K1, you'll immediately realize that it's in another class compared to Pentaxes that came before.

DP Review puts K-1 Mark II as second worst camera of 2018

The problem with DPR naming the KII as one of the worst cameras of the year is of course that the UPDATE, not the camera itself, is one of the worst of the year. To extrapolate that into 2nd worst camera was malicious, and confirms that they don't really care about the brand. Of course there's quite a few other examples also.

Last time I looked KEH had one for $29. I'm also looking for one, but import costs to South Africa would make it too expensive.

Pentax analog spot meter?

I wonder if a LED substitute cannot be made up? Surface mount parts are very small. Also an LED would probably last the rest of the meter's life.

Although I marvel at the automatic features cameras have these days, I use my modern Pentaxes much as I did in the film days. For the kind of photography I do, it is still the easiest and fastest.

Love the simplicity of the picture. Also the sun's reflection on the water unifies the picture, in constrast to other sunset pics where the horizon splits the picture in two.
