Doesn't Hyperprogram make Av and Tv redundant?

Hey there,
i'm a manual shooter myself, but i've been wondering why Pentax keeps the Av and Tv modes on the mode dial... do they give any advantage over simply using Hyperprogram?

36MP is 50% more than 24MP.



But it's not. It's tied to sensor area.

You post this video as if it was revealing something shocking the public needs to know.

When in fact, this is a video for people like you who didn't bother to read on the dxomark website what those scores actually represent, and need a video laying it out in front of them.

I think it's fine that the scores don't reflect the cameras' ergonomics or autofocus accuracy, since that's never what dxomark was set out to do.
They give you only the sensor information, it's your decision what to do with that information and how to value it against the other aspects that make a camera great.

So... it's not that the numbers aren't correct, it's that until now you were mistaken what those numbers meant.

man i wish Pentax would have a page like that, where you could post how Pentax cameras could be improved... sure, the no 1 spot would be taken by "make a full frame", but maybe usability improvements like "in playback mode, zooming in should center on the focus point used" would get heared.

anyway... 67th.

Wow that backside looks to me like they gave up usability to accommodate that screen. Buttons are not placed where you can reach them comfortably, but instead, they are shoved to the edge of the camera...? :confused: weird layout i think

again, it's hard to help you if you don't write one word about what it is that you don't like.

however, i think the colors seem inconsistent from shot to shot, and the skin tones don't look so healthy. is that what you mean?

i took the liberty to process one the way i think it should look.
greetings, alcazar

How to push the Pentax Full-Frame Idea and get that FF out faster...

what insights into the market do you have that you come to that conclusion?

afaik they say there's only a market for it if it has a unique selling point. making a FF is one thing, making a FF with a strong USP is another. if the Pentax FF is spec'd and priced just like the canikon full frames, then people will keep buying those. i guess for Pentax the cost of R&D, marketing and rollout is only worth it if they can sell the FF not only to existing customers, but also convert people from other brands.

- The pentaxforums' review of the K-3 critisizes "Cycling through screens in playback mode is tedious" - a pop-up menu appears instead of the old method, cycling through screens by repeatedly pressing the info button.
This is slower and brings no apparent benefit. Will you bring the option to revert this?

- The K-3 offers 100% zoom in playback mode now (which is useful for quickly checking correct focus), but it zooms in on the center of the image, and you have to scroll for finding the point of focus. Will you bring the option to zoom in on the AF point that was used?

- Is there a procedure inside Ricoh Imaging that allows for consideration of changing little ergonomic problems like the 2 mentioned via firmware update after the camera has been released? How does it work, where do you get your input? Have you heard of Adobe's "Just do it"-program of quickly implementing small features requested directly by users, and do you think something similar would be a good idea for Pentax?

just a wild guess: make shure you don't have your finger on the shutter button while you use the menu... i used to do that and the fact that the screen would randomly switch off confused the hell out of me for weeks :-)

I love the fact that this camera is so small! Ricoh seems to be progressing on miniturization, which lets me hope a FF Pentax will not be much bigger than a K3
