    Is a Samsung GX-20 sort of, almost, a K20D?

    I bought the Samsung about three years ago for a very good price, but it’s now gone to a new home, replaced by a K-5, better in many ways, but I still like the older camera a lot.

    In February this year, I photographed the Festival Centre in Adelaide, and along the bank of the River Torrens; a very unreliable Kingston SD card died while on the shoot, so I went home disconsolate.

    Fast-forward to a recent Mac software bundle offer and I am now a happy owner of Disk Drill Pro, which recovered over three hundred DNGs from the card. I have started to process the interesting shots, and here is one I prepared earlier.



    Pentax 16–45 @ 16mm: 1/250 f9: iso200

    No idea how the GX20 and K20D match up, but I'm happy for you that you could recover your photos !


    Kind regards.

    They are pretty much the same camera, but with different software—K20D; GX-20?

    And the Disk Drill software is the best recovery package I have used.

    But did you like the picture? At least it was made with a Pentax lens!

    Well, I can see a line below your picture that reads: "you like this".
    Guess it means I like it ...

    Kind regards.

    It's a fine b/w conversion, nice shot too, but why is it almost Pentax like ?
    Really not in a life time could I tell them apart !

    Kind regards.

    Don’t worry—it’s just a joke! I can see in my mind’s eye somebody complaining about a Samsung being talked about here in a Pentax forum …
