not much chance of that they didn't work well, they existed for journalists in the days before zoom lenses

Wait, its a firmware change that tags your images as being shot from the camera manufacturer of your choice (Canon, Nikon, etc.). This is why it is first coming to Pentax cameras!

Then we can lie as to what camera we have and get jobs shooting for Brightroom.

So I heard from a very very unreliable source that the product in question is actually camera armor with style, which is made from your choice of alligator hide, lemur fur, or lamb sack. you choose the material and then it is custom stretched over your Pentax for a snug lasting fit that will also protect your gear with mother natures finest. Apparently snake skin is in the works, but problems arose because the skin does not conform to the body well and it looked tacky as all get out, but lamb sack on the other hand, is classy.

I'm getting this image of going out with my leather wrapped K-5, shooting in the rain, and then having smelly wet and molding leather.

Great, so then we get attacked by the fur haters and PETA types while shooting an event or whatnot!

Make sure you have the weather resistant lenses!!!
