Multi pattern white balance? I wonder how that will work out.
"When shooting scenes that include multiple light sources, such as sunlight and shade or flash, light sources are recognized automatically and the image is separated into different areas. White balance is adjusted separately in each area according to the different light sources to achieve optimal color reproduction."

Is it just me, or do they shave off like .1x.1mm of the sensor every generation? We're going the wrong way!

Seems like a nice camera, though. Anyone see a date or price?
Adam has the price already up at the front

It certainly seems like a great upgrade on paper, I'm excited to see how it performs. The keys are going to be how much of an improvement the new AF system is, and of course the performance of the new sensor. Disapointed that there was no announced improvements in the flash system, but I guess you can't have everything.

Wake me up when.....

The spec sheet seems a bit light on details. OVF and Sensor AA and virtual MF modes are not mentioned at all.. we've been salivating over these features for days now. .. lol. I dunno but I reckon our fantasies were more interesting.

PS> I just read the spec's off our forum and the AA sensor trick is mentioned.. my bad ATS.

Missing something?

Image processor? Which one? Has been an issue (especially with creating HDR....really slow)
Save HDR in RAW format? Rumors were it would...will it?
Selective White Balance! Way too cool, any details (assuming will have to be in JPEG only but can dream of RAW post process option)
Still would like to see ISO bracketing with lower ISO options (makes HDRs so much better)
Bottle opener....okay maybe they can leave that feature out.
And amazing that Ricoh cannot get the web site updated with current information. Thought they would fix that problem of the old Pentax site.

Only scary part is a full frame coming out next spring (just upgraded to K-5 IIs last Spring). Oh well what's wrong with ANOTHER camera in the bag (along with the K-10, K-20's and LX's when I feel like film)!

Does anyone know the format of the raw video file from K-3?
I tried to search for the raw video format of D800 just for reference, but in vain....
Thank in advance!
