Pentax at Arlington Camera Show

Went to the Arlington (Texas) Camera Show today with my daughter for the third or fourth year in a row. The booth was covered with all the latest: K-S1s in every color, Q-S1s, both Z and D 645s...

Here's a pic of the booth with the incomparable Jessica Oleksy presiding.

The Pentax booth was a bit bigger this year, and definitely had more equipment. As in previous years, it was comparable in size to the Nikon, Fuji and Panasonic booths - just a bit bigger - and seemed to have more traffic than any of them. Also as in previous years, the Canon booth was much bigger than any other booth.

Beyond the equipment, there are classes, models available for test shots, and a big-enough crowd to jam pack the building on a rainy Texas Saturday. The show is open from 10 am to 6 pm Sunday, Nov. 23rd. Feola say check it out.

Hey Weevil,

Yeah, it was hard to tell which was more heartening -- the effort Pentax puts into this, or the steady stream of people at the booth. Much busier than, say, the nearby Nikon booth while I was there.

Canon was the busiest, but then they had a HUGE booth -- took up the entire back wall -- with live models you could shoot to test out gear. They do that every year here.
