This was shot 6 years ago. As far as I remember there was a handfull phones shooting HD at all, so at least your "average phone" cant be true ;) K7 was the 4th dslr ever to implement video btw :)

Smartphones will have 8k-RAW video and 500fps FHD before Pentax starts implementing FHD 60 and clean output. So keep dreaming :D

Accepted. K1 still looks gorgeous, hate the body design of the other brands, especially the mirrorless ones. :( Like we say in Germany: There is not an ultlimate "Eierlegendewollmilchsau", still sad :( :D

Why more expensive? Was a price already mentioned? Why should video making it that much more expensive, the tech is inside already. The only reason such feautures make other cameras THAT more expensive, is because they have other products they need to protect. You know yourself that 645z argument is silly I guess :)

Bad comparison. In this case, you could add a feature WITHOUT changing or influencing any of the other features! Btw Im sure Porsche could built a truck and sell it, their SUVs are selling like hot chocolate :D

Yeah, or less. Thats just excuses. Why smaller the target market instead of increasing it?

Haha, reading all the comments I might change my mind about the regret part, you're so adorable guys :D No, to be honest Im sure the camera will be great. And I still love my old K-5's look for photography and the raw is awesome. Couldn't push it nearly as hard on the Sonys Ive used. Just edited an old picture in Photoshop and being able to push 3,5 stops without a problem is incredible! And the noise of the k5 looks way more organic than on the Sonys.
But I make a living of filmmaking and need to have an versatile camera that shoots decent video. Of course, 4k might not yet be the most important thing and the IQ comes first, but the fact that it does not have 4k is a sign for me. I don't think Pentax might have learned how to implement decent video or maybe they don't care and that is okay but sad. The k-5 was a monster back when it was released, even concerning the video. It had MJPG, Mic-In, the best SR on the market (and I would even say it is still the best SR) and the image was pretty good even though it had no full manual control. I don't really get how they once threw so many video features that back then were ahead of their time (especially in the k-7) and now are kind of lacking interest in pushing the video limits in their cameras. I mean, other than Canon or Sony or Panasonic that all have to see how to implement good video without cannibalizing there higher-end more expensive dedicated video cameras Pentax could without any downsides implement beasty video and everyone would profit or at least have no disadvantage. I hope you get my point? They had a ton of time, the video market is big nowadays with everyone owning a stills camera being a filmmaker too and they could easily bring a game changer to the market but they don't. I bet there are many talented people at Pentax/Ricoh but this still does not seem like a good economical choice at all.

Short film shot (mostly) on Pentax K3ii

I like it, the voiceovers voice fits and is likeable. But I miss some kind of music. Would have made it more interesting I think and also would have made the noise and cutoffs of the voiceover less noticeable. And I think I would not have had the wind noise at 0:38 remain in the video. Besides that, good job, keep going! :)

Hello Pentax community,
this time I'm gonna post a video that was not shot on a Pentax because buying a quadcopter that would carry my k-5 is tooooo expensive and out of reach at the moment. I still hope you enjoy the aerial view of Frankfurt at autumn! :) Looking forward to your feedback! And sorry for the bad youtube quality btw, looks sooo much better on my computer and I wish you all could enjoy it at the same (mostly shot at 4k) quality.

Yours sincerely
Carlos

P.s.: Feel free to like and share, if you think the video deserves it, every like helps me on a video contest by Sony :) If I win the a7s and sell it I might have enough money to buy the long awaited Pentax FF next year :)

K-01 video quality and maximum ISO
Posted By CarlosK3

Because of the K-01 getting cheaper and cheaper I thought about buying one as an addition to my K-5 for filming. Sure, the K-5 has the better image because of less compression but the K-01 has manual controls and 60fps at 720p.

I wanted to see some samples but didn't find anything decent, especially concerning 60fps. Could someone upload some RAW video files of his k-01 at 24fps & 60fps in different light situations? Another question is: What is the maximum ISO in video mode?

Thank you in advance! :)

Haha, most people don't even know what a matte box is meant for :D Some people only use it to look more professional for their clients. And a follow focus won't help you if you don't own an external monitor as well, because telling perfect sharpness on the small 3" is a gamble :D But I would also be really interested in some samples with those russian lenses. What mount are they, m42?

Yes, Pentax's SR on the K-5 might the best I ever saw on a camera and I have it nearly always turned on. With some practice, a steady hand (and/ or a little bit of AE stabilize) it makes a slider obsolete if you can't afford one :)

The location is the city Vigo, which is located in the spanish state Galicia. Like you already saw, I used a flycam, yes. A Flycam 3000 to be exactly.The only scenes where shaking was digitally reduced are the scene where one guys overviews the city and the sunset at the end ;) And yep, we're from Germany. 3 of us from Kassel and me from Frankfurt.

Hello everybody,
my name is Carlos and I'm a 21-year old filmmaker from Frankfurt (Germany). Since I got my hands on the K-x which was my first digital SLR I've fallen in love with Pentax and I guess, thats one of the few reasons I stayed with it despite shooting more video than photo. So I guess, this forum is the right place for someone like me :D

Best regards

Carlos

Love Metaphor (Vigo, July '12)
The making of the video cost me a ton of work, especially the edit because this time I didn't want to use the editing process simply to add different clips together but to use it as an additional storytelling tool. This video is not only the story of three german tracers falling in love with a city and its citizens but its also my version of a methapora about love. This metaphora is about the steps of love from hapiness and excitement to hatred, anger and agression when the relationship is getting older and sometimes if it doesn't break it finally reaches the stadium of total satisfaction. I tried to show this through choice of footage and music.
Thanks for reading
Carlos Meyer
