Does it mean it has a little smartphone-like camera hidden behind the flip-screen housing that takes a photo of yourself while you shoot ?
Now that's funny! If smartphones and tablets can have front and rear facing camera sensors, why not a DSLR? On the other hand, how many pictures of my nostrils do I need?

Three series: Standard, Nature Collection and Sports Collection versions, which appear to be just colour variations.

I'll be very surprised if the K-S2 doesn't have interval shooting and multi-exposure.

EDIT: Just read specs - YES, it lists interval shooting and multi-exposure.
Saw that too on the US site. I'll note that they were saying the same thing with the K-S1 on the US site at first, and eventually removed that text. But let's hope they'll be there for real on this one...

EDIT: So the "Stone Grey" looks pretty good, IMHO...

The K-S2 LCD monitor also features a variable-angle design for the first time in a PENTAX digital SLR camera. By rotating the monitor 180 degrees to face the subject, the user can activate the self-portrait shutter button, to capture the perfect selfie!
So flip the screen and some button becomes a selfie button.

Do you know if it will take an AA battery clip like the K-r/30/50/500?

4K is for interval movie shooting, similar to the one in K3 and 645z.

Mic input mentioned in the nice description on the front page of this camera, they seem to mention audio levels monitoring.

Here it is ! PENTAX - K-S2 Black
Seems a great little camera.

Interesting new feature 'Clarity Enhancement':
QuoteQuote:
Clarity Enhancement Feature and Advanced HDR Mode

Newly adopted clarity enhancement option adds more realistic texture impression to images by enhancing the spatial frequencies to match with human visual characteristics. Enjoy outstanding clarity even on screen-fit view on a variety of display monitors from a tablet PC to 4K high-resolution displays.
But it only seems to apply when viewing images on-screen when displayed from the camera (?)

Also they really need to provide some better sample images. This image says little about the camera, and just looks like a poor crop.
