New Pentax K-70

Interestingly it promotes better full HD video. "Flawless full HD movie clips" in 60i (meh) and 30p frames per second in the H.264 format (standard). This says very little in itself, through.

Together with the announced HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3ED PLM WR RE or smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6ED AL[IF] DC WR lenses however, the K70 will have improved continous autofocus together with these lenses. Also extended aperture control in the former lens, which could be very nice.

If they implement Focus assist (zebra patterns) in live view for video and perhaps better compression through the codec, this could be an interesting option for those interested in video. Bring back mechanical IS and it will be their strongest competitor thus far. But none of these are mentioned so I will have to wait.

If it were a priority, Pentax could really offer something unique in the video department. They could start by bringing back mechanical shake reduction and up the codec. If that were the case, I'd probably upgrade, given the time.

My battery drain problem completely vanished following this path. They are more expensive, but last a long time.

I think it is bound to happen that a new APS-C flagship will be released, but maybe it will take more time, since Ricoh/Pentax put more effort into their upcoming full frame model. It will probably be as with their Q-line up, which I hope will continue, but was hinted in the recent interview is not top priority at the moment.

It does strike me that Pentax has several good things going for it, one thing which is certain: you can get pretty much the best build quality, including weather sealing, for the least amount of money in the industry. They have created a sweet spot for people like me. The K5 and later, K3 - are in this respect, top notch.

Since we now know there is a dslr coming out, probably intended as a replacement for the K50, it appears there will be quite a short amount of time to announce a flagship camera with a quick release schedual. Or are they known to push fast from announncement to release for the general public? (I haven't actually given this much thought previously).

Camera Store TV Give Pentax 2 Awards 2014

I found myself laughing and enjoying the segment, TCS mixed humour and seriousness and I think they strike the right balance between the two. So what if they think the KS1 suck.. It is their opinion and they also give quite som praise for other Pentax cameras (645Z and K3 to be specific).

They are actually promoting Pentax cameras, which is more then I han say for a lot of outlets.

Pentax best and worst of 2014

The camera store TV feature two cameras from Pentax/Ricoh among its best and worst of 2014, in a quite hilarious (and drunk) presentation. The 645Z is considered second best of this year, while the KS1 is, well, not that lucky.

Take a look:

Aside from what their opinions may be, what are you guys and gals thoughts on the best and worst Pentaxian move of this ending year?

- Not being part of the megapixel race would be good.
- Better video all around, focus on shake reduction and codec.
- Continue to imrpove auto focus.

Three steps of Q sensor increases, if true it is both unconventional and quite cool. Perhaps 2/3 is the threshold of what is possible with current lens design?

What Should Pentax Do?

This would be innovative! I don't neccesarily think it would be wise to introduce another mount, but if it would be able to take k-mount lenses with an attachement, which is active, it could be great. Also look at what speedbooster is doing, they turn full frame lenses and increase their light capabilites by taking away the crop factor.

I think there is a benefit to being conservative, the design choises are a bit hit and miss, and I feel Pentax would probably be wise to invest in better software engineers. Other then that, I think they should just continue to make top notch aps-c cameras and lenses for some time to come.

Since the bokeh like effect it is software generated, it could possibly have been improved since the original version. I guess we just have to wait and see.
