Pentax K-01 in a Nationwide Insurance Commercial

I usually don't watch that much TV, but I was watching a show and a Nationwide Insurance commercial came on featuring a "Cat Woman" reverse burglar - as in she is putting items back after they are heisted. Anyway, check this out at 18 seconds in. The camera she puts back on the Kitchen counter...... It has the Pentax logo whited over, but it certainly looks like the "brick".... You can stop the video and then zoom in on the frozen image to get a better look (hold down the control key while scrolling the mouse wheel). I am guessing that if Ricoh had arranged the product placement, they would have left the logo on....

All that says is that there is a Pentax user that is running a prop department out there somewhere..... Any chance that you might be on the forum?

You see the advantages of a Marc Newson design. It attracts the eye of the creatives that run art departments and advertising agencies.

Unfortunately it has been discontinued so they won't be replacing it with a "brand new" K-01.
