World Exclusive! Prototype of next generation Pentax camera spotted!!!

I was wandering around a sci-fi convention yesterday when I just couldn't believe my eyes - I spotted what appears to be the prototype version of the next flagship Pentax camera - obviously due to pressure from the stained sensor and FF issues on the K-5 Pentax had to fast track a replacement model very quickly:


Featuring an all new completely redesigned AF module with no less than 6 AF assist lights - FF issues will soon be nonexistent for any light source:


I spoke to the official Pentax representative who assured me the new camera will make Canikon go green with envy:


I also tried speaking to the head of Pentax research and design, but he refused to divulge any details. His comment was "Who am I? Are you sure you want to know? The story of my life isn't for the faint of heart. If somebody told you this was a happy tale, if somebody said I was just your average guy, not a care in the world... somebody lied."

Very good, lol!
I dunno which is sadder, going to the convention, admitting going there, or putting it into the post ;-)

LOL!

It was my first time, went there with a friend - I didn't really know what to expect (I think I was probably thinking of the opening scenes from the movie "GalaxyQuest")

On the whole it was really boring - apart from taking photos of the cosplay. The people who dressed up were really accommodating to requests for photography and were very good at striking poses for us.

Unfortunately I am not a big fan of the genre so I don't recognise many of the characters, but I gathered many of them were anime rather than sci fi.

For example, this costume is from something called "Chobits" - whatever that is:

Chobits is a comedy about personal computers that take the form of sexy young girls. I think what you have there is a factory second...

LOL - so what exactly are you trying to say here Jeff!!!

Well, I thought she looked (and sounded) very feminine ...

But then maybe not compared to Justin Bieber

A cool light-hearted diversion from all the tech hype.
Thanks for sharing.

Like gary I am old enough to know what K-9 is. I miss the old version of Dr Who with its dodgy sets and cheep special effects. The New big budget version just does not have the innocent charm of the original. Bit like the Pentax KX.

You were there. I wasn't. Must be the lighting on a handsome woman.
