My 33rd Birthday camera-cake!!
Camera: Pentax k3 
Posted By: fredrious, 04-23-2016, 11:29 AM

It doesn't matter if you don't have enough money to by your favorite camera. If you have a lovely wife, she'll make one for you, a sweet one! : )

Story: For a long time I was waiting to finally grab a Pentax K-1 in my hands. Almost two weeks ago announced that the K-1 would be on a Roadshow and that it would come to my city (Regensburg) on April 29th. I was so excited because of the news until it turned out that we had to be on a short trip starting exactly from April 29!! What a shame.

Few days later, on my birthday, my wife surprised me by bringing home the whole Ricoh factory and exclusively making a brand new (sweet) Pentax K-1 for me : ) How lucky can one be! It was so hard for me to cut it, but eventually, I had to, it was my birthday cake : )

So here you are, a special edition handmade Pentax K-1.

P.S.: My wife is not a professional "cake maker", this was her first time making such a beauty.

She did a great job of modelling the cake after the real thing! The green LCD screen on the top plate is an especially nice touch.

Can you do an in-depth review of the weather sealing for us?
