Much, much better than that other one.

Shame he didn't say "I was blown away by the speed and accuracy of the focusing", but that'll do for now

Yeah many comments I see are asking what the video bitrate is and if the AF system works during video recording. And I'd like to know if the focus peaking is able to function during recording also. Still very quiet on that front.

I do like the ability to view the images on an iPad. That would be really good for checking focus etc as I personally find the rear screens make everything look good in the field, and find pixel peaking quite difficult to check that well on the rear screen as often it all looks really good on the bright rear screen.

Can do that now with various wifi sd cards.

Yeah but I like the idea of having two card slots for this. Or course why not just build it into the body, rather than make the physical housing for two cards etc when it's likely this will be occupied by a wifi card anyway?

What about when new wifi standards come out, you can upgrade the card and keep your body up to date... The flu card will also like other wifi cards most possibly have memory capacity still.

To be honest the eye fi card I have you really only need the one card. I have the 16gb version but it has a never run out option so just keeps uploading when full and deleting the earliest photos first to write over...

No, AF does not work during video on the K3

I'm not for or against anything based on that. It didn't do a lot for me though really. It was just a video of a person taking shots of a ballet dancer with a few glimpses of some specific features.

I just watched a video on youtube of a canon dslr doing just this. Nothing fancy but it tracked a bloke walking towards and away from the camera on a tripod. Seems a shame to not be able to utilise this new K3 autofocus system in the video mode?!
