02/02/2012, Remember the rumor late yesterday evening concerning the Pentax K-01? Well, it seems that the horse is out of the stable now, with Pentax having announced the Marc Newson designed Pentax K-01. This is an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) that comes in a timeless retro form factor, and yet does not have any technology inside (or on the outside) that hail from yesteryear. No sir, it is all future forward […]
02/01/2012, What you see above could be a leaked image of the future Pentax K-01, although it might very well have been a decent Photoshop job as well. This mirrorless camera does seem to share its design cues from the past, and with image leaks like these happening (real or otherwise), you can be sure of one thing – the real deal ought to be released very, very soon. It does […]
01/26/2012, Photographs can be taken in either a landscape or portrait orientation, but unfortunately most cameras have been designed with its shutter release button placed in a landscape position, which sometimes makes taking a portrait orientated photo slightly awkward. Now we know it’s not really a big deal but Pentax has decided to address that particular “concern” with their new Optio VS20 point and shoot camera which features a vertical shutter […]
11/28/2011, How do you think the world would look like if it were all just black and white, with shades of grey in between to tell the difference? Well, a black, white and grey rainbow would not be much to look at, would it? M&Ms and Skittles, too, would lose their sense of taste and flavor. Well, good thing we live in a Technicolor world, and with the Pentax K-r digital […]

09/02/2011, Pentax decided to deliver some good news to those who have been hankering after the Pentax K-5 DSLR for some time already – and seeing just how the world’s economy is more or less topsy turvy at the moment, it makes sense to lower the price point of the K-5 to $1,499.95, which is a Benjamin shaved off from its previous level.

06/23/2011, The Pentax Q camera was announced late yesterday, and was touted as the “world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera”. Since only one lens (standard prime) was announced with the camera, it seems a bit odd to not have any extra lenses announced for the camera.

06/22/2011, Leaked information about the Pentax Q was true to form, but too bad the leak came out just hours before the official announcement, which isn’t too enticing since there isn’t enough time between then and now to create enough buzz concerning Pentax’s latest shooter, the Pentax Q. As mentioned earlier, this is the self-proclaiming “world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera (ILC)”. The Q as it is simply known will […]

Meant for use only with Pentax digital SLR cameras (obviously), the Pentax […]
