K-01 on TV

a black and silver K-01 has a featured role in a new insurance commercial (18 seconds in)


I can't quite make out the model of the film camera it's replacing, however...

Do you have Nationwide insurance?
Do you have ninja skills?

If you answered "Yes!" to the above questions, you have a chance... .

Certain conditions might apply; must be the age of 18+; you must keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date; you will not transfer your account; we reserve the right to remove or reclaim her if we believe it is appropriate.

I think it was already posted. As noticed, the K-01 clearly replaces an old SLR.

I noticed the dslr in the commercial as well. It certainly does look like the K-01.

That's pretty cool, and you have a sharp eye to catch something so fleeting.

But after the video finished there were a number of other videos to watch. his one caught my eye:



Oh yeah!

I was just about to post about the commercial, but I guess there's a lot of sharp eyes around here. While it was nice to see a Pentax on TV, I have to say the camera was not the best thing about that commercial...

On this morning's Today show on NBC they had a segment about freed lab chimps.
A lady was taking pictures of them with a dslr and I expected it to be a Nikon or Canon, but it didn't look like either.
I rewound and paused.
It was a Pentax K-7.
I about fell out of my chair!

The slr looks a lot like a Pentax K1000. If so,the commercial writer is on top of their game. K-01 can be clearly read on the second camera
thanks
