I believe all stress test are made in house, and the beta testers just the funcionality test, i hope that only Kenspo and a few others and no the general public be a beta tester
Bugs are guaranteed, particularly if the system has a lot of newness in it. So I really hope Ricoh take the opportunity to throw every test they can at their new flagship FF (ie K-mount computer) before it hits the stores.

Yes Ricoh surely doesn't need a K-3 fiasco with the FF body.. it seems this is why there aren't many willing to take on much risk.. the market is so tight already that one false move could be over the cliff. dooooom. haha

But it also seems they ARE really looking into this.. if the 70-200 is any model..

5-9 November is the Salon de la Photo show in Paris, and Ricoh will be exhibiting there. Maybe the FF will be formally launched in Japan first, and then make it's public debut at Salon de la Photo?
I'll be there and hopefully can test the FF with my lovely FA 31 & FA77

I need some fresh excitement for this release to tide me over so I don't go out and do something stupid like buy an XT-1 or a D810 or another Profoto B1. (holy run on sentence batman) More money than brains right now... or impatience for something new and exciting lol. I blame my boss for wanting to give me bonus money :P

I dont have it in my hands yet. I will know more later this coming week..since most of Ricoh's people here, have been on vacation lately. They should all be back at the office from tomorrow
I'll look out for suspiciously duct taped cameras when going to the ya festival later this week ;-)

you get a media pass to the same show that Kenspo is at when he starts testing. then you get someone to distract him, cut the camera strap, grab, and run like hell. I don't recommend this course of action however. Just saying thats probably the easiest way to do it.

But first, you should use Google to search for Kenspo's picture, to figure out if you want to mess with the man

Probably the best way would be: time travel back maybe 20 years, move to Japan, learn Japanese, do some formal study there, and then either (a) get a job in the Ricoh imaging division, work there for 10 years, or (b) become a well known photographer in Japan in a genre of interest to Ricoh (eg fashion, music, landscape etc), hold some exhibitions in Tokyo, get some Japanese media attention, then wait for an invitation from Ricoh to test their new FF under a very tight NDA.

More seriously, I think it's basically too late for beta testing. That's done. They are supposedly two months away from product launch. They are probably cranking out fully working 'pre-production samples' ready for distribution to the camera media (and Pentax insiders) world-wide as we speak.
