Priolite: Sync Speeds Up To 1/8000s With Pentax - Third-Party Announcements | PentaxForums.com

Not often do we get access to a technology that has the potential to change how photographers work. A technology that enables photographers to create images like never before, only limited by their imagination. This is about sharpness, resolution, speed, fidelity, and so much more. It's a game changer.

If you have about 30 minutes, please join me for an official announcement and a short presentation about this significant development, and what it can do for you. Seats are limited

And to think Pentax could have been saddled to a different horse a few years ago. Looking forward to the Monday news

A new Theta model?
Not sure I understand how seats can be limited for a Web Presentation?

Hmmm. Instead of 'plastic lumps', now we get web presentations.

Real products that people can handle would be preferable.

Perhaps Ricoh has chosen to leak some information about the FF model in November?

In spite of all Ricoh is more active than Hoya. Sorry to say but I expected much more from Hoya. Great optical firm and on the other hand the
Pentax tradition. And what - loose of time.

Okay I'm Intrigued

This has to be an overstatement though 'the potential to change how photographers work' I'm finding myself at a bit of a loss. Lets see what could be so revolutionary - High burst mode where you pick out the frame you want? Open source apps, Android OS DSLR, SIM card upload to cloud storage, Theta at 30 FPS with high resolution 20 mpixel images. Ricoh GR with in camera super sampling from multiple shots (Not the same as K-3 II) hey If I could come up with enough of these I might actually get close.

You mean like a government that announces the same funding multiple times? I fear that you may be right.

I doubt this will be something tangible, based on the wording. Perhaps it's a piece of software, firmware feature, etc.
