Pentax Ricoh Photokina 2012 Interview Update

As I mentioned before, I had the opportunity to interview three Pentax Ricoh representatives on Wednesday.



They were Mr. André Dierickx, Managing Director of Pentax Ricoh Imaging Europe, Mr. Shigeru Wakashiro, head of the Pentax Product / Camera System Planning Team of Pentax Ricoh Imaging Japan, and Mr. Genichiro Takaoka, part of the same team.The video is otherwise ready right now, but it was decided last-minute to use the noise-free sound from our sound recorder rather than the crappy audio from the video cameras. This means that the video will be delayed, but you'll be able to see it before the end of the weekend for sure! The wait will be well worth it

Thanks! Please also provide time codes of

it typically takes at least 18 months to develop a new product [...] It may take longer for larger formats. In the past, we told you that we were evaluating the market to see whether a FF body was in demand and feasible to make. Let's just say that we are looking at this particular product type more than ever right now...

They also said that the FF will NOT be at CP+, but chances were high that we'll see one in 2013.
-> Start of development: 12/2013 - 18 months -> 6/2012 ... or earlier ... anyhow ... in the past

The video is going to have subtitles as half of the interview was in Japanese (translated on the spot, but still)

Adam, why don't you satisfy our curiosity now with whatever sound you have, and then post a new video in a few days, so that we can see it again and go through some new conclusions?

I kinda want them to edit the video with a big Cheshire Cat face when the question is asked and then have it slowly fade away laughing...
