    am i reading things correctly?

    i am reading an article about the K1-2, which says that the frame rate increases if the camera is switched from full frame to crop mode
    at least that is the way i read the article.
    is my understanding correct?
    cc and enjoy

    Photography is painting with light

    What article?

    - - - Updated - - -

    However, for many video functions on phones/cameras, a reduced image size
    does allow for a higher frame rate.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Yep!.

    According to the specs, 4.4fps in full frame mode, 6.4fps in APS-C crop mode.
    The reason will be the buffer fill/write rate.

    Full frame mode has more data per images(eg. 70-90MB / image), APS-C mode more likely to be 25-30ish MB / image .. so for every 6.4 APS-C images per second, you have less total Mb to write to the card every second.

    One thing I like about Pentax .. is their philosophy that the customer is king!
    You can update you K1(series 1 model) to a K2-II model for a reasonable sounding fee(I think about $500 or so).
    It takes a while to do, as they change physical bits internally AND subsequently label your series 1 model as a -II model too.

    A very cheap update
    Nikon D800E, D300, D70s
    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    {Yongnuo}; -> YN35/2N : YN50/1.8N
