    the convention was mostly 45-minute to 1-hour presentations of different pathological subjects by different speakers. we shot from 8am to 5pm and even until 12 midnight on day 2.

    i used 1280 x 720p, 30fps. it never overheated. focus peeking helped although you won't get it WHILE recording video. nevertheless, manual focusing was easier for me via the lcd. my old eyes were grateful.

    nice cam. i ordered one already, for use mainly as a video cam.

    WISHLIST:

    1. an articulating lcd screen
    2. audio monitoring and more audio controls
    3. live view when using and external HD monitor WHILE RECORDING VIDEO.
    4. change the rubber thing that covers access to the sd card slot


    (and i sold the 60d after the convention.)

    please post more reviews sir joseph, I'm thinking of taking the same path..

    Thank you sir for your account on the K-01. I agree with its video powers; I've tried the K-01 also before in a store. I also agree with the rubber door... it feels flimsy compared to the rest of the body.

    "This is not a camera store"...... I like your signature. I remember late last year, I think, two photographers here in DPP lists all their equipment and gears in their signature and they were stalked by syndicates by luring them into supposedly photographic assignments in a darkened "middle of nowhere" in Antipolo.

    Buying a camera doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a camera owner.

    Re: 2012 release: Pentax K-01

    Resurrecting an old thread - how many people have shot with and bought a K-01? Prices have been cut drastically on this in the US, so I decided to get one to replace my old K100D. Got a kit in white with the 40mm pancake from B&H - less than $400 shipped My aunt will be bringing it home this February.

    Re: 2012 release: Pentax K-01

    Bought this cam for video work mainly as I am not really into photography. Sold my 3ccd's to switch to dslr's. Started with a 2nd hand K7 to evaluate the transition until I decided it was time to dive into it more. So I got this and some manual lenses and a video rig. What made me go for this was the design, apart from the obvious IQ advantages over some Canikons. I know it doesn't appeal much to many, but for video it kinda makes a lot of sense, especially with the size of my hands. The bulkiness and weight makes it more stable handheld. Pocus Feaking (thats how the lady from camerahaus says it) is one of its most useful features.
