Mel, before you became a Mod you were a really nice member. Now you are a tease and you forget the /sarc tag all the time.
LOL! Sorry!! Just reportin' what I was told! Seriously though, when he tried to get a closer look the person holding it moved it behind his back. Brendan was going to see if he could get a good look at it but they're definitely being discreet with whatever it was. But he did emphasize it's rugged appearance.

Tease tease tease. Really I know nothing. Just reports of glimpses and peeks.

Mystery Camera Spotted at CES?

QuoteQuote:
A glimpse, just a glimpse was had of a rugged appearing, possibly mirrorless, viewfinderless camera sporting what looked like a k-mount limited or pancake lens. Could this be a prototype of something forthcoming? Please note that no announcements have been made and nothing is substantiated. This was just a spotting of what looked to possibly be something new. Maybe. More information will be posted as learned. Stay tuned!

I don't know if it's me, but that dark blue text on a gray background on a blue background is murder on my eyes.

OMG, CAN SOMEONE JUST STORM THAT BOOTH?! I NEED TO KNOW NOW!

EDIT: Ha, saw that was posted by Mel, too.

Isn't this a Pentax Forum, and not a FujiFilm X-Pro1 fan club? Seriously, people... :ugh:
Right now the XP1 is the hottest camera at the show. Pentax made their name by making compact, high quality cameras and small high quality lenses. That is exactly what Fuji just introduced. A lot of Pentax users would love to see a Pentax version of the XP1.

Rumors are rumors, but I want to see what's in that glass case down there in the courner. Clearly, Pentax is showing SOMETHING... and after all, CES is supposed to showcase the best products of whatever year is comming around. I for one think they have SOMETHING to show. There is also that crowd around the table... They just might be keeping it low key...

It was posted by me on P3 because I am one of the editors of the publication. The other editor/owner, Brendan, is at at the show and called me on the phone right after seeing it and told me about it. I then posted my blurb on P3. It was later that I mentioned it in this thread. As you can see, there is a link to P3 in my signature line. Brendan posted his sighting to our Twitter feed first. I followed suit on P3. Full disclosure and all.

Oh and I've been an editor there longer than a mod here if that matters to anyone.

Those people in suits huddled around the table are probably whispering about the new color schemes they're about to reveal for the Q. The people spoke, and Pentax listened!

Ken Rockwell reported that the activity at the booth all centered around the Ricoh Leica-M mount module, and suggestions on how to improve it. (His was to go FF)
He said nothing was new on the Pentax front. Of course, the show is just starting.

How about the Pentax Q Pro X-1 camera. To be news worthy it has to have X in its name. :-)

did this make it already in the forum?
It is from Pentax Germany stating "The poster needs to get bigger this year"

Ok, something will come and it is marketing. But maybe it is linked to the CES
