Brown! ???
There have been some brilliant Kr and Kx colours but this isn't one of them. Though the little bear face on the prism housing is cute.

I think it kind of looks cool. Makes me hungry.

Will probably be rebuffed on Gizmodo

This will probably draw the ire of the bozos on Gizmodo, calling it fecal-brown or the "skid marks" edition.

Nevermind that it's a limited edition, that there are only 1000 produced. They never pick up on that fact (and yes, I make comments and leave things in the "tips" box, but it's all largely ignored). The K-5 beats the holy 5DmkII in dynamic range, but you wouldn't know it if you relied on Giz for your photo news.

If it's not the latest incremental megapixel bump on a consumer CaNikon, they don't want to know about it.

I find Engadget to be similarly caustic towards Pentax, although maybe not as harsh as Gizmodo. I think my wife would love this limited edition though

I'm a big fan of Rilakkuma (I have subscribed to the San-x page on Facebook) and I have the Rilakkuma app on my iPhone, but the camera looks kind of ugly compared to the character:


Of course, Rilakkuma inspired electronics is not new:

This one certainly looks better than that previous multicolored one.

A distinctly Japanese one.

Pentax definitely knows how to market in Japan. Americans don't get this stuff.
