- develop Modular system with external modules (like GXR but more split)
... split body, sensor and lens units ... we can use body when we travel in other case we can use tablet (Android, iPad etc.) for directing with bigger display (important),
it is real revolution .. not only mirrorless.
I think that people like Jobs would add interchangable lens modul with sensor to tablets and smartphones
and after several Years ...who will be Pentax Ricoh / Nikon / Canon etc !!!
There is possiible trasfer data from sensor to external unit,
changed some hardware by software emulation and it would do what we need
(e.g. ARM processor and graphical cards or develop special photo clone of tablets with DSP processor)

... and try it in the nature and in the level ground .. if You need some expensive equipment (special tripod) for fixing then it is'nt well done
. .. I think that solution is in the controlling device, which we would use normal non expensive tripod
and all functions we would change from control unit via tablet or smartphone without moving tripod ....

- adapt camera hardware components to ICT technical standard (all components and add other like wi-fi, BT3, GPS etc.)

- keep technical evolution

- more software developping and benefits

- buy Metz or Elinchrom or both company (and wirreles solution) ...

- try re-value partnership with Samsung or make partnership it with other ICT company like Apple, Google, IBM, Nokia, Oracle etc.

Poll question would be sometimes so stupid ... but it wouldn't be in the czech language

thanks K

No thanks “Ricoh”, we don’t need fancy gadgets or gismos.
Well developed cameras and lens, is what real photo enthusiasts require.
Keep it simple.

Many thanks.

Yes, we need, but it would be a part of modular system?
Some people need more than other,
some people are waiting a new possibilities
and I think that Pentax Ricoh, too ...

Wireless communication with Android and Apple tablets / phones for liveview, video and controls would be great, but not sure about a modular system.

But yes, I agree with Chris - the first priority is an uplift of the current lens line up... e.g. revising the DA*16-50, perhaps improving the kit lens that the K5 etc ship with (how about a WR 16-45mm?)

Agree with ChrisR....Faster/quieter autofocus, clean high Iso images, quality lenses at sensible prices, forget about silly on board effects filters and gimmicks.

Michael

longer lenses, a more accurate auto focus that will work in almost total darkness. a choice of bodies for eack model including one that doesn't have video, why should i pay for something i don't want, need or will ever use!

It would probably cost more to produce a separate non-video model, and would be pointless too since the video function is not something that needs much other than a bit of software. Rather than 'not adding video' they would have to 'cripple' the video capabilities of the CMOS sensors they use.

You do that every single time you get a piece of software. Some years ago a survey showed 95% of Word users actually used 5% of the functionality of the program. After many years of extra bloating I would think the figures ever more extreme.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Undoubtedly true of Photoshop too .

I shall be happy if Pentax Ricoh bring out some new lenses, especially some longer ones, some top of the range expensive beasties, and some for the mere mortals amongst us. A new flash, as good as the Nikon ones, would be nice too.

I think in general, "expand the range" is what is needed. When you look at Pentax catalogues from the 70s and 80s you realise quite how much there was.

Personally, I'd love a tilt/shift lens but I cannot see it happening, just too specialised.

Some personal interest (masters of photography)
and Pentax alive ... continue line of our lens, bodies, flashes etc. that I think all Pentax users need after 5, 10 Years and next ... what will be?

This question have to prepare a good company today.

Split prism focus screen option please for SLRs, then I might be tempted by the K5!

Pentax Q
... I tried it
... well done, but why it doesn't have:
- the possibility to change P-TTL control / master for internal flash
- AF adapter for Pentax K lens (DA lens included)
- the possibilty remote control from Android / Apple / Windows systems
with wireless HDMI, BT and wi-fi connections

... price comparing with Nikon 1 system (AF adapter made) !!!

I tried Pentax Q and I bought Sony Xperia Pro
... it is a bit alternative to my Pentax K-5 (of universal and pocket solutions) because I need some nowaday comunication device, too.
