i pray to god that the play button doubles as a LV one, and there is a viewfinder hidden in that bump.

I am wondering why the elevation of the built in flash seems to be higher at the back of the cam (not sure about this, though). Of course, the flash elevation mechanism might be responsible for the strange form. Yet maybe an EVF could fit in right behind it. Hopefully.
Another explanation could be some kind of hinge hidden there to flip the monitor up and give a waist level view finder (would be rather cool), as I am not yet convinced, that the cam doesn't have an articulated screen.

I think there is a reason why they deliberately have not leaked a picture of the whole backside.

But Adam's comments suggest he has the press release info and more or less he said there's no VF. Didn't he?

EDIT:

Even without a viewfinder, I think this camera will have a lot of merit.

From the photo could it be that the back fully go up including the control The finish is different and the indentation on the right side could be the hinge

I'm sure that's just the card slot hidden there...

i think its more likely that that is the card slot cover.

Adam is probably trying to keep us guessing.... hopefully...

i dont understand it. I would take a viewfinder over a built in flash any day. The flash on my K-r broke a while ago- and i don't care- i never use it!

Then why so secretive about the back side? Maybe they're just playing with us

I would agree, or some sort of output port.

I'm pretty convinced that there is an EVF now.

i will be very disappointed if not anyway.

To put it this way- It would not cost hardly any more in production to have a EVF, and they are guaranteed to make far more sales if it has one- so what is there for them to lose?

having said that though, the gar didn't have one

yeah. its probably all the ports and the card slot in the same place, instead of putting one on each side of the camera, as with the K-r

Ehh... from a design standpoint putting all the ports at the grip side is a big no-no...

My Guess it's a K-O1 - as in "K" - "Optio" - 1 since it looks to me as if it's a "Super Optio". As in a blending of the Optios and the K mount. In that I get it now.
