Pentax K-50 Eye-Fi Bundle
Ricoh Americas adds wireless connectivity to the K-50
By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Oct 16, 2014
Ricoh Imaging Americas has just announced a new Pentax K-50 bundle consisting of the camera body, a DA L 18-55mm WR lens, and an Eye-Fi Mobi wireless SD card. The latter will allow users to wirelessly view and download photos via a smartphone. This kit will be available at retailers nationwide for $499.95 later this month with black, red, and white color options. We currently do not know know the capacity (8Gb, 16Gb, or 32Gb) of the Eye-Fi card.
The Eye-Fi card is essentially a freebie in this new kit, as the current retail price of the K-50 with a lens is also $499.95. If you don't want to wait for this bundle, head over to Adorama and grab a Pentax K-50 kit with a free flash and $50 gift card and 4% reward, then apply the rewards and gift card toward the purchase of an Eye-Fi card, making it almost free (plus you get a flash). Other bundles with various other free accessories are available as well, and we've summarized them in a recent post in the deals category.
Regardless, both the new Eye-Fi bundle as well as the existing bundles are a fantastic value for those looking to upgrade to a modern Pentax body. They're also great holiday gift ideas if you'd like to introduce a friend or relative to the wonderful world of photography.
The Pentax K-50 is a weather-sealed upper-entry-level DSLR with a host of advanced features that make it unique in its class, such as an optical viewfinder with 100% coverage. Learn more about it in our in-depth Pentax K-50 review.
