Pros: Size, weight, file quality, adjustable screen, AF micro-adjustment, wi-fi

Cons: Cross buttons difficult to maneuver (little protruding)

Opinion: I've been using ks2 for about a month and I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of this small, just-in-size camera. They have a K1 that is clearly another category, but the little one often leaves the 300mm naturalistic preference for short distance distances while retaining an appreciable image quality. For the rest I believe that those who preceded me in the opinions have Said almost everything. Rn I wanted, however, to do this review to make a correction to what are the descriptions of the features that do not include the AF micro regulation that is instead.

Pros: Size - Adjustable Display Stabilization Sensor

Cons: Lacks the mirror up function - uncomfortable rear Cross Keys - Stagnation dell 'used market

Opinion: One thing I really hate are the rear cross keys, the left in conflict with the display and still flat and hard to select the blind if not with the nail. Customizing improved dials. For the rest I confirm the previous reviews. The Pentax attack, stabilization and sound and visual confirmation in the viewfinder makes it excellent for use with slow, manual vintage even though the meter with these lenses only refers to the center point (I think) and is less reliable. Digital effects can also be applied to images already taken, the 'HDR is pretty horrible, but who can' pleasure ... I noticed an ease to burn the lights that improves with the correction that you can 'apply 200 iso on. The swiveling display is so comfortable that it would do no more 'to meno.rnIn practice I think is equivalent to other peer-end brands with the added stabilization and tropicalizzazione.rnA Unlike what is specified on the card, there is fine adjustment of' car focus.

Pros: low weight, swiveling display (finally!), in well-assembled plastic chassis, endless customization, good noise kept at high ISO, bright viewfinder

Cons: Missing the socket for the remote cable release, mirror up operation only if the self-timer, the remote control sensor on the front only, wb daylight with a strong magenta cast

Opinion: I purchased the K-S2 to tile flagship K-3, and coming from the latter I noticed some deficiencies. For example, there is no view to the cable remote shutter release, and for me that I love to photograph at night is an inconvenience because with the camera on the tripod you can only use the remote control. Besides, the sensor is only on the front of the camera (K-3 also has one on the back), then to use it must get at least on the side of the camera itself, because if it remains behind there's no way scattare.rnAltro hitch it is the mirror up function. The K-3 has a dedicated menu while on the K-S2 this function can be used only in conjunction with the self, with both the (2 sec.) And with the remote control (3 sec.). RnHo started by listing the "against" because I am the ones that I noticed right away, but I add that being (in theory) a mid-range camera, we can rest and once made a habit youcoexists without problemi.rnGià that there are, I point out that compared to the K-3 the white balance to daylight has a strong magenta cast (both occurred in RTAs in Lightroom), and requires a correction in PP, if not like .rnTra the qualities it takes me the swiveling display. It was time for Pentax to be adjusted to competition. It has excellent resolution and is convenient when shooting from low (back thanks ...). Do not touch it, but not if they miss. Unlike the K-3, the chassis is made of plastic instead of magnesium, but is assembled very well and gives a feeling of strength while being light. It also holds good and all the controls are operated without problems, even the front wheel, which instead a specialized magazine called awkward as too close to the button scatto.rnCome usual for Pentax, the pentaprism viewfinder is very bright, l ' the list is endless customizations and held at high ISO is very good, thanks to a little 'less sensordense than the flagship. Finally, there are some functions "scenes" that greatly simplify shooting in certain situations and do not oblige to pass by various menù.rnInsomma, despite being little more than an entry-level, it is actually a camera that can also make the happiness of most experienced photographer and experienced, with a value for money very competitivo.rnSe only you could use a shutter cable would be perfect.

Pros: af fast, wifi, adjustable screen size and weight and tropical conditions, sensor stabilizzato.per who noted the lack of grip on the remote control or the remote sensor, remember that the machine is fully manageable by smartphone or tablet, just crock.

Cons: awkward left joystick button with the screen closed. missing upper LCD, some refinement functional aesthetic type rotating hooks for the shoulder strap, magnesium body, overexposure difficult to manage.

Opinion: given that they are the first impressions, I have the camera 15 days and I could not take in all conditions and with any goal, however, as often as for Pentax another great product. rnCome qualities you immediately notice the clarity of the optical viewfinder and the large field of view, follows the digital time swivel and excellent reading in the sun. It opens up a world of shots in very interesting ground level, as well as macro facilitated. the display monitor in detail is not perfect, but much improved compared to a k30. The machine is compact and sits well even if he loses the perfection of k5 and k30, which is not scollano by hand. But after a while you find a great location, that I had to keep the index at the top in the engaged position. on this video selector that if you act to rush you go directly from off-screen was added, but you realize right away. I've never been fond of video cameras, but the convenience of having it on the power button of makes you think that something you could capture the anch and in movie. It has a metal frame but in excellent plastic chassis, but I would have preferred magnesium, maybe they wanted to reduce weight. weight and size ultimately make me think of the choice of the machine, hardly use a tripod. Missing the top status monitor, the retractable screen protrudes from the camera body and almost impossible to press the left button of the joystick. It has many functions to take pictures without going through the post production, all work and they save a lot of time. Only eliminate the defects without affecting other. Board sharpness and highlights (works by ISO of 200in) rnAuto focus very very very fast, even in complete darkness then is not lost much of mind! The seal at high use is excellent, between 100 and 300 there are no substantial differences, and up 800 the result is excellent. The oriented screen I find it great for macro shooting from the floor, with the app and activated wifi is a pleasure. You can leave fixed somewhere and manage all the camera with your smartphone, including af. Significant crop you can do I think grazi6euro; guaranteed Fowa four years. since it is a just released template does not recommend the europe warranty, if something does not work and care goes into europe miss a season of shots as well as a whole lot of pennies in spedizione.rnAspetto expenses other reviews or comments from vostra.rn
