Is it time to ditch the SD card concept?

So true, except maybe for the cost advantage to the manufacturers. They can cut cost and yet charge higher price for the storage and we would not be able to do anything about it.

If the camera exploded, fell into a void or burned, I very much doubt the SD can survive either.

Thanks for the review. F8, 1/30, ISO500 - I don't know if that is strong enough. I was spoilt by the power of the Pentax AF160FC.
BTW, you couldn't have picked a scarier subject. :D

So true! The box says Ricoh but the lens in the picture says Pentax.
But then Panasonic does that with Lumix too. :lol:

Same here. Almost impossible to shoot only 1 frame if drive is set to high. Ended up with the bad habit of jabbing the shutter button. So now I set it to medium or slow instead.

I am just hoping for an improvement in AF accuracy. I have never been bothered by AF speed but do value focus consistency. Sometimes the pdaf misfocus. LV is much more consistent.

Your opinion differs from mine. I enjoy watching his YT video. Good or bad info about Pentax, I take it all in and decides for myself.
The fact is he did say that about the AF firmware, the fact is he does exist. The fact is you do not like him but I do enjoy his videos.
I respect all your posts in other threads, regardless whether I agree or disagree. How about you respect others?

Cameraville mentioned a 4th firmware update relating to AF. Maybe that will improve its performance.

Battery cross compatibility - Pentax D-LI90 and Panasonic BLF19

I cycled the battery once and tested it. Internal resistance is a little higher than expected but at least the capacity matches the original.
It did not achieve 2040mAh but then it depends on the test perimeters and margin of error. Now I can only hope it lasts for many years just like the genuine ones.
I have tested many others but deleted the results. Most cheap batteries cannot even reach 1400mAh and IR are very high. Only Pisen was true to its rating of 1400mAh. But I can no longer find that battery.

Red: Zitay 1949mAh
Orange: Pentax 1846mAh
Green: 8 year old Pentax
Blue: cheap 3rd party

Yes, I noticed in ebay that Japanese sellers labelled lenses excellent ++ even when there are some scratches and dents on the barrel.
But I bought from Amazon JP brand new.

B&H will not ship overseas or else I would have bought them long time ago.

---------- Post added 09-02-21 at 11:00 ----------



Over the years I have thrown out a dozen 3rd party batteries from every brand I could get. The capacity of all of them are around 1400mAh new. More importantly all of them have high internal resistance which cause a big voltage drop which in turn may be the source of weird camera problems people complain about.

I use a West Mountain Radio CBA IV to test all my batteries so that I know the exact capacities and voltages under load.
