K-01 non-existent?

Looking at the Flickr data for all Pentax camera, can't seem to find the K-01.
What's happening?
  • K-01 users don't upload?
  • K-01 doesn't exist (or has a different name)? Or,
  • K-01 isn't a Pentax camera?

Yeah, that's Flickr being Flickr. I believe I read somewhere that several people sent requests to have the camera added, but nothing ever resulted from that. There is a K-01 Flickr Group however, and it's currently about 600-member strong.

Following up on myself, but... I tried earlier to send something into Flickr Support. Just got this response:

Hello ,

Thank you for contacting Flickr.

I'm sorry that your camera isn't listed in the Camera Finder . I'd really like to help.

All information in the Camera Finder is provided by Yahoo! Shopping. Although we do not have direct control over this information, we have passed the information that you have noted onto them, so they can look into it. We do not have an estimated time on if or when these updates will be made, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

If you have any other issues, definitely let me know.

Thanks,

Jacob

The Q and the MX-1 are not listed either.
Or the K-5II/s or the K-50 and K-500.
Yet there are plenty of photos from all cameras if you search.

Yahoo are just dropping the ball

The revamp of flickr a few months ago, was not just dropping the ball: it was cutting the ball into ribbons, and burying it.

I can hardly bear to look at my flickr photostream without the "&details=1" adjustment.

It's this web wide move to 'Responsive design' for mobile devices that is (in some cases) creating a bad UX for desktop browsers.

Speaking on behalf of all K-01 owners (we've had a meeting): we're too busy out in the real world taking cool, arty and "in the moment" pictures, to upload to $RANDOM-SOCIAL-NETWORK.

Its nothing to do with the revamp, either. It to forever to start seeing the K-x in Flickr when it launched, and my P&S Samsung took almost a year to show up, and when it did it was lumped in with half a dozen other models that preceded it.
