DSLR Boom Continues
The K-7 also adds a new 77-segment metering system that quickly and accurately determines exposure for even the most complex and dynamic lighting situations.
The HD Movie capture mode features adjustable quality and resolution settings, aperture control, as well as mechanical Shake Reduction, and an external microphone terminal for recording stereo sound. The K-7 will capture video at the default standard of 1280x720 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio (equivalent to 720p), 1536x1024 resolution with a 3:2 aspect ratio, or 640x416 resolution with a 3:2 aspect ratio (equivalent to VGA quality), all shot at 30 frames per second.
Can’t imagine what each of these manufacturers will do to top this first half of 2009 but you can bet the wheels are turning as we head toward the pre-holiday Q4 selling season. Stay tuned.
