B&W only DSLR

I'll try to track down the blog I read where they removed the color filter array themselves. They basically scratched and peeled it off (in one sample shot, there were still bits of color left along the edges where the filter wasn't removed completely). Apparently it makes images sharper, more sensitive ISO, and better DR. But yeah, anyone tried this out themselves?

What happened to my message? It's blank. Did the admins move to the proper forum?

Anyway, was just wondering how to remove the color array filter of my K100D, after reading how Canon users remove theirs from old 1000D's. Any ideas? Thanks!

I speculate an FF mirrorless in a K1000 body to go head to head with Fujifilm! Unique! But sadly just a dream...

if pentax did the same for their mirrorless, as a digital LX, with k5 sensor... that was what i was hoping for... sad that oly beat them to the punch :( if only ricoh and pentax reads the forums, they would have seen many of us hankering for an LX styled camera... thinking of getting this oly, though being m4/3 is a shame.

@pingflood - Call me Huddie from Shreveport ;) Me too, looking forward to using M lenses on it too, if the registration distance allows for it. But still pining for a retro Pentax Mirrorless that can take K-mount lenses :(

Fuji will announce their X camera next week, the interchangeable x100 type one... I sincerely hope Pentax announces something that'll blow the Fuji away and be worth waiting for...

New Fuji X Interchangeable Lens Camera..photo leaks | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS

I've been waiting for Pentax to make a small, interchangeable lens, camera that handles like the ME Super for years. It's been discussed here by others before, but alas Fuji were the ones who listened... If this camera will be good, I might get one. Will still wait for Pentax' entry in the EVIL arena though. Hope they deliver something worth the wait...

K-x - DA 40 combo ... found a small bag

I'm using my k100d and DA40 almost exclusively, the bag I use is a half-sized messenger bag. I have my wallet, phone and stuff in an outer pocket, while inside the main compartment is the camera and lens. For added protection (since it isn't padded), I have an old corduroy fisherman's cap I wrap the camera with. The cap also doubles as... well... a hat when needed :)

If the upcoming Nex - c3 (3c?) has the same sensor as the k-5, then surely Pentax will have no problem doing the same... hopefully.

Then make it the size and feel and look of a k1000 or even ME Super and it will be awesome. With jeztastic's suggestion, a seamless adaptor for K-mount lenses that would work and look seamlessly would be doubly awesome.

So there's an APS-C EVIL, and it was mentioned that Pentax is looking to compete with the x100 market... here's hoping it's a digital LX, with same retro design and size :)

Personally, I find the lighting too hard and flat... like it was taken with the pop up flash... the third one above is better. What lighting are you using? And how?

Have a k100d, tried it just now... removed the lens and sd card. The camera would just say that no sd card is inserted but i can access the menu just fine.

What the others said, looks shady to me. If the camera were his/hers, they would have explained more about the sd card thing.

Hmmm, I saw these at a local arcade here in the Philippines. I think they cost around $1 to $3 here. They sell it in plastic eggshells (as mentioned above) and you have to put in a token worth about a dollar. I forgot if it requires just one token or three though. You couldn't choose colors though. It dispenses in a gum-ball-machine-like, um, machine.
