Maybe I'm nuts but I'd swear I've seen full-frontal pictures of the final product. I assume the prominent K-1 is real.

Because it is an new processor, but maybe not a Milbeaut?
All processors are made by Fujitsu for Sigma, Nikon, Leica, Pentax.

Maybe.

DIGIC is based on Texas Instruments OMAP (Open Multimedia Applications Platform) - I found such info.
The Digic sensors are made by UMC http://www.umc.com/english/class_300/index.asp, and designed by Texas Instruments

https://chipworks.secure.force.com/catalog/ProductDetails?sku=CAN-CH4-6501&v...ext=digic%205+

Sigma, Pentax, Nikon and Leica are Fujitsu.

BUT...Ricoh has own processors for GR and GXR cameras.

DIGIC is Fujitsu too.
As posted above Fujitsu no longer makes the image processors the business was spun off into a company named Socionext. It is still part of the Panasonic-Fujitsu collaboration.

Leica (Maestro), Nikon (Expeed), Pentax (Prime) and Sigma (True) = Socionext Milbeaut.

Canon (Digic) = customised Texas Instruments OMAP.

Panasonic (Venus), Samsung (DRIMe, based on Exynos) and Sony (Bionz) = proprietary products internally developed.

No it is not. On Digic 5 and 5+ they worked with Texas Instruments. Datasheets - Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki - Wikia

At this time Pentax seems to have conceded leading video to other brands. Aside from the problem with audible IBIS movement noise, whatever unknown software/hardware issues they have, or feature substitutions they have made seem to be made. Endlessly arguing video is free does nothing. If it was 'free' they'd do it.

Either accept it or move on.
What happened with that rumour that Ricoh was about to buy RED?? I believe the source was Kenspo (I don't remember).

You didn't change it quick enough or he already quoted before you edited it.

Indeed kenspo was the one.

Ricoh is after buying RED..might be a connection here. But i can't confirm, cause no one wants to talk about this bit. So this info is from others..

Wow, tantalizing possibility. The possibility of marketing RED cameras with new Pentax-branded lenses would go quite a long way toward bringing the brand back to prominence....
