Thread: Pentax K-7, It IS Here!

  1. #41

    Default Re: Pentax K-7, It IS Here!

    so far...what i see main advantages for practical usage,

    Vertical Battery Grip D-BG4, Weather-Sealed and Cold-Resistant, Support Either Another D-LI90 or Six AA Batteries, Provision of Extra Shutter-Release Button, Preview Lever, e-Dials, AE-Lock, Green Button and AF Button

    Continuous (Lo):-
    JPEG: 3.3 FPS: No Limitation, until Card Full;

    1/8000th second Top Speed

    Built-in AF Assist Light:
    Yes


    *In red is what should have been in the K20D...i wonder if ever found out which genius at Pentax said Assist Lamp not needed for K20D because for work, bloody useful. I wonder if the number of shots left will be very obvious in other modes.

    Anyway unless the price is very competitive, going to be tough especially if they going to use video as selling point.
    Supported Video Modes: 1280 x 720 Pixels (16:9 Standard High Definition), 640 x 416 (3:1.95), 1536 x 1024 (3:2), All Modes at 30 Frames Per Seconds.....so is it 720i or 720p? i would have thought by now should be 1080p.

    not many K20D users will "upgrade" or i dun even see it as a upgrade anyway... AF confirm improved, but still not there yet....less than a yr and K30D might be out...

    K100D/K200D users might consider...

    nice, looks like pentax also did listen to feedback from its users and incorporated it into the development of the K-7.

    for example, the addition of a focus assist lamp, addition of AF button to the grip, etc. i also infer from one of the pictures that the remote control can be set to start and stop a bulb exposure (no need to point and hold).

    not interested though!

    Sigh.

    to be perfectly honest, we can't say whether we're interested or not until we know the following:

    1. Image quality/High ISO performance improvements (especially if not limited to better noise smoothing for JPG)

    2. AF speed/accuracy increase

    3. Price.

    Of course, it's not as if anyone -needs- more camera than they have already, assuming they have a fairly recent dslr.

    (This doesn't apply to you, kelvint81. buy buy buy! lol)

    K-7的AF系统仍然是采用从*ist D时代沿用下来的11点AF系统,在算法上应该是有了不小的提高,和K20D一样也有针对不同镜头的AF微 调记忆。据说K-7的AF系统叫做SAFOX VIII+,不知道这个+是否指的是增加了独立AF辅助照明灯?

    yes, no reason for them to ditch it

    Pentax DSLR中首次出现的独立AF辅助照明灯是不少用户期待的功能,这个功能也可以通过菜单关掉,以免在不 想打 扰被摄者的时候发出可怕的绿色光束

    green AF beam?

    I definitely don't need it, I admit. in fact, I feel my K100D, an 'old' model as it is, is too much camera for me. There're functions, like exposure compensation, which I haven't really gone into yet.

    And when I look at my photos now, I doubt having a newer camera will make me a better photographer. My photos will still be as lousy as before, just that they may show more detail :P

    So I don't need the k-7. But I WANT the k-7. And that's the difference. Perhaps that's also the case for most of the upgraders! Haha!

    (Would have sprang for the now reasonably priced K20 if not for the size..)

    Well, if you want it and it's an affordable discretionary purchase... why wait?
