Nice K-r promo video from Pentax

This has been out a while apparently. It's in German but I guess there are likely to be other language versions around the place:

EDIT: found a French version too:

Yeah, there are certainly similarities with the K-x 'Emilie' clip. This clip isn't as polished though - it lacks the nice tight storyline of the K-x 'Emilie' clip.

Instead of the cool story in the K-x clip of 'arty boy meets rock-star/model girl', the story in the K-r video is 'skinny guy takes photos of old lady on a roundabout, then walks down-town'. Yawn

I also hate the way the K-r owner in this clip is shooting his camera - most of the time he is shooting using LiveView, treating the camera like some big point and shoot.

Do you expect them NOT to emphasize that the cult K-x successor has finally got a proper screen that people can use and at least similar to competitors?

I really don't see why the K-r target market should be considered anything but P&S savvy.
This is toe-dip enticement, entry level territory. They don't expect that consumer seqment to want to look like dorky "Camera Guy" geekoids.
