What do you think of Touchscreen for future Pentax DSLR's

to the OP, i'd have to say "no" its not a good idea. Simple point is that you should be able to control the camera whilst at your eye, by turning a dial, flicking a switch or pressing a button that you know the location of without having to look. I bemoan cameras and camera manufacturers which 'drop' hard controls for menu based systems.

If it does come to pass, at some stage, then please God let them leave the hard controls in place and allow the touch of the touch screen to be deactivated (a menu option would be fine for that!)

What do you use most Raw or Jpeg

k20 - raw + jpg

My reason for liking jpg along with the raw;

a) when browsing the windows directory, they are fast.

b) I have a liking for the in camera black and white (adjusted to high contrast), and for some reason silkypix takes the RAW shows it in that lovely black and white and then helpfully converts it back to colour (although I probably didn't want it in colour).

Anyhow, I like the posters idea above of getting it right in camera then there is no need for RAW in the immediacy of the photo shoot. The only thing i do believe is that there may be something that you want to do with your image in many years to come and if you've just the jpg then perhaps you won't have the image information to do whatever that may be (ie: x amount is discarded) so RAW in a way future proofs your artistic intent (that you don't even know you have as yet :) )

Robert, thanks for the blog post - it very nearly got me to the end point of a question that is presently on my mind.

I would be much obliged if anyone could clarify the following for me;

If I want to use SR (shake reduction) with a manual lens (the 50mm f1.7) does crop factor come into it at all? i.e. should I be selecting a 75mm lens setting when I turn on the K20D for the shake reduction to work at its best?

Hey there fellow Pentaxians,

So i've been lurking from time to time about these parts and the forum has used the electronic cattle prod on me - so here I am making at least one post to avoid the unthinkable.

Anyhow, back to lurking for a while :)

Best wishes to all,
