More treats for you shutterbugs like me! Here’s a fun, new device announced this week by Pentax – the Pentax K-01. Some very cool news out of Pentax.When is a camera more than a photographer’s tool? The answer is when it’s an object designed by Marc Newson, one of the most acclaimed and influential contemporary designer – Enter the Pentax K-01 (pronounced ‘kay- zero-one). The K-01 will be available in yellow, black and white in March 2012 for $749.95USD (body only) and $899.95USD (lens kit including new DA 40mm XS)
About the advanced functionality… The elimination of an optical viewfinder and quick-return mirror gave Newson more freedom in designing the camera body, and the K-01 showcases Newson originality in every detail. Available in black, white and Newson’s signature yellow colors, the K-01 features the designer’s autograph logo stamp on the bottom of each camera.
An interesting new rugged, waterproof, dustproof device from Pentax delivers strength, durability, GPS, and much more – perhaps an interesting option for anyone needing a fine camera for field work and jobs in rugged environments. Some major improvements in the latest Optio WG-2 models include:
