Mix of different styles.

That dusk gold color scheme paired with the 20-40 limited makes the K-S1 look a lot better. Maybe Pentax really should have updated the 18-55 kit lens with the release of this camera.
Looks awful

I wonder how the smile recognition works on pets. Cats, and dogs. Not that she's a dog, that supermodel you just convinced to pose for the hot new camera launch. Woof. Ron Hendriks is going to go wild with this one.

Yes, yes, LEDs are stupid, the blinking red self timer light was stupid as well, remote controls are stupid and Pentax is DOOMED™.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but that is similar to how most selfies/wefies are taken today.

They should build in a small camera-module that is like those smartphones in the back of the camera for selfies. Not to fancie, just like 8 megapixel or so. How expensive can that be?

Well, that basically erases the "hey, I bought a big camera with a lot of megapixels to make us look like models, lets point the big lens at us!". Youth today express individuality and persona through tech, like it or not it's a fact. The K-S1 is made to stand out, it's made to look fun to use and it's made to make you the center of the party. There is a reason that sneaky street shooters are a diminishing category of photographers.

It gives people joy and who are we to deny them happiness?

I guess we'll see if it sells. My feeling is that there will be more people interested in this, than if Pentax came out with a full frame camera. While folks on the forum are interested in better image quality than they currently have (APS-C) and their lenses "working the way they are supposed to," most of the world is interested in better image quality than they have currently (cell phone camera), ease of use, and could care less about legacy lenses and how a 50mm "is supposed to look."

I imagine the kx was the best selling Pentax camera of the digital age because (1) it was small, (2) it was cheap, and (3) it came in colors. And plenty of people like the colors, even though folks on the forum had to fight nausea when they even thought about it.

We are not founders of Ricoh to think how it sells.

I contact with young people very often. They are more clever and advanced than a lot users of this forum think.
For example, they buy lenses for iPhone - fisheyes. And they don't care about DSLR anymore.
And they really live in Internet environment.
Touchscreen and Wi-Fi are the part of life already.
As for K-S1.. It's really OLD school. LCD lights is not serious. It's funny.

Young people have interest to DSLR, but VERY weak now. The peak of popularity of DSLR is gone several years ago.
The cameras which they use - entry-level Canon and Nikon DSLRs and Sony.
Mirrorless Sony, of course. But vast majority uses smartphones.

K-S1 reminds me the movie - Fear and Trembling

The grip LEDs are slightly tacky, but they're more functional than the usual self timer lamp. So... do you think it's stupid? Do you think a method of verifying face detection AF from a distance is stupid?

People will still be taking selfies when we've abandoned photographs and are taking 3D holograms instead.

Let's just forget it is a camera altogether. All we care about is the selfie features (or lack of selfie features)

Apparently Ricoh has. It IS the K-Selfie1 (and Q-Selfie1) after all.
