I believe the presentation starts at 6pm Pacific time (GMT-8) tomorrow. Not +8.
So, 24 hours from now a bunch of you will be watching this webinar, available all over the world at the speed of light, and then someone will post something here, which will be sent to the rest of us all over the world at the speed of light. I don't expect it to be relevant to me, but I will be grateful for your report nonetheless.

Maybe it is a new tripod head that will simulate pixel shift technology on any existing camera.

Not sure how that would help Ricoh though...

A clip-on-plug-in rear swivel screen for all currrent Pentax DSLRs, that's what it is! Maybe.

But we'll probably all be muttering "meh... what was the fuss about?" this time tomorrow (in some part of the World).

I really hope it isn't being exaggerated- it takes a lot for something to be groundbreaking

My bet is that the announcement is absolutely NOTHING. Just talking about Pixel Shift, 645z or whatever...
I really hope i'm wrong, though!

I just wish there were no teasers, just announcements.

If whatever it is is half as good as the beat up it will still be great, but everyone will be moaning.

This whole thing smells like when they had this "whatever his name is" designer announcement for the K01 ...
