I'm not quite sure Pentax would have made such an apology before Ricoh ownership.
Ned's response would have been something like "Huh? What? What picture?

They should have hired Miley Cyrus and her circustour....





Well it's good now. Maybe they even understand that it is not even smart to photoshop such an image, unless you'r 50+ and still live with your parents.

Don't kid yourself. Miley Cyrus is just fine. It's an act, and she knows exactly what she is doing.

Another marketing misstep... everybody knows that lime and red clash. However, the Blue Cream Soda would go well with Miley's boots.

Once your product is derided it is nearly impossible to restore credibility and intended market identity. Now that it is forever associated with the Giant Woman I would say in the marketing area of Ricoh Imaging Americas Corp the K-S1 is now a well and truly dead product.

We're doing a great job, don't you think?
"What are we going to do tomorrow night?"
"Same thing we're doing every night, Pentaxians! Try to kill Pentax!"

Nothing wrong with that!


However, I was at the Bangerz tour of Miley Cyrus in Amsterdam and she didn't hold up a K-S1!

You've hit the panic button, Monochrome.

Most don't know or don't care.

The mocking of the bending iPhone 6 is a storm in a tea cup, for example.
