Ok, now I KNOW Ricoh is serious! Shopgirls!
I actually like the fact that they are tastefully covered. PRI is serious!

I said "Shopgirls" not models. Having females show off tech toys to a 95%+ male audience is just good marketing. Having them tastefully dressed indicates to me that the product is worth focusing on once they have your attention.

Firmware not polished

The chap mentions the speed of the camera response, while not noting that the firmware is far from being in its final release form. Doesn't have his facts straight..

Upon further inspection it looks like it's just a C mount adapter on the Q for KOWA CCTV lenses.

Really neat though. There is such a wide variety of (basically free) CCTV lenses out there I might have to pick up a Q when they get cheap just to experiment...

Well, lately, anything tech including photo shows are car shows without cars, really
Not that I have a problem with naked women, none at all
But it's true that using 'it' to sell bugs me :ugh:
