Pentax K-S1!

Pentax is having a second try at K-mount mirror less, this time with EVF!

PENTAX K-S1???????????? - ????info

Looks somewhat futuristic.

Edit - It looks like this is not mirrorless after all - just a small DSLR

It must be a low end model because it has no mode dial. Some interesting details that look mostly decorative and a rather different control pad on the back.

Critics - sharpen your knives!

Well, this camera looks VERY different.
I'm kind of happy that this might FINALLY be something new from the Ricoh brain trust contribution.

Looks pretty cool. Interesting to see if it is real or not.

I think itīs fake. In the last picture you can see the viewfinder looks just like the ones on DSLRs. It should be black if the screen was off or showing some kind of data.

Interesting. But no flippy screen

The K-01 looks better IMHO. This better be very well priced.

Pretty detailed for a fake, IMHO, but lo-res pics for sure.

Looks like the video mode switch is on the on/off switch, where DOF preview is on Pentax DSLRs.

Can someone post some images or text from this link? All I get is a "403 - Forbidden" error.

Cheers!

If I understand the translation correctly, it has a new smile recognition and detection system. The LEDs on the front turn green when it senses the subject is smiling. That green Auto mode will also run in a "smile-preferred" mode and only trip the shutter when the subject is smiling.

I bet this thing sells really well at Disneyland.
