Are we really that mean?

I came across a Pentax K1 review video on youtube, and it started with the following message:



Was that a joke or there were really some pentaxians behaving like a crying baby?

I believe that comes from a video from The Camera Centre (Canada), and is very much tongue in cheek.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

It is meant to be tongue in cheek but there is certainly an element of truth in what he says. I laughed out loud when I first watched that video (not at the K-1 btw)

mean whats mean if you tell them the truth that they have made a balls up then its deserved
if they have missed the boat and you tell them
the thing is if you dont tell them there is somthing wrong they dont try and fix it its part of the learnig curve

My Pentax is so fast at focusing it focuses before I point it at the subject.....truly amazing.
Best regards, John

My Pentaxes (K3, K5 and K30) are so clever they go out and take pictures on their own while I sit in the coffee shop eating bacon sarnies.

you think its a joke but tony northrup posted a review of the k1on youtube and then had to post a second video defending his review because the pentax lynch mob came out even after him saying its the best landscape dslr he has ever used.

Focus is so last century, time to move on.

Why? No built in flash controller?

Admittedly I only discovered wireless on my lowly K30 last night and I have a Metz 50. It is a bloody brilliant feature and my fault for not knowing about it.

Actually Pentax have dropped that feature (or something similar) on some of the newer models.

My Pentax cameras can't track focus much at all. And the video mode could be a lot better.

Most everything else is superb though.
