Hopefully they do add more dates later - I'd also be interested in a photo-related coffee break. You guys who got in, let us know how it goes!

Yes, it is in the title , I read what I wanted to and glossed over this, thinking as I was it would be like the 100 year presentations of something. I will pay attention next time.
Honestly, I didn't cotton on to the "1-2-1" part until after I'd registered I thought it would be a group session, and I'm kind of surprised they're doing it this way. You'd think small groups of half a dozen would be just as useful, and certainly more efficient. It makes more sense now, though, why they asked for details of the cameras and lenses each participant uses... I imagine they're tailoring each session to promote products the participant might want to purchase next.

They're one-to-one presentations tailored to the individual rather than group sessions, so I guess that's why spaces were filled so quickly

I didn't get the slot I wanted, but was offered Thursday 17th of December 15:00 - 15:45, which I've accepted. Given the obvious demand - which I suspect has taken Ricoh a little by surprise - I'll be amazed if they don't offer additional dates...
Get your money ready, loosen up that wallet! I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't leave your session without a commitment to buy the K-3 MkIII upon release.

LOL They'd have to convince SRS to offer me an attractive trade-in for my K-3II and DA*60-250 If I buy the K-3III any time in the next couple of years, that's what I'd be selling (as a minimum) to part-fund the purchase...

At the price estimates I've seen, I'd half expect them to sell you on a time share option.

Maybe these people are Toastmasters and no how to do a presentation in the allotted time?
Toastmasters? There's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time. I used to be an Area Governor in Massachusetts back in the 1990s.

Really? I thought it was a new concept after hearing commercials or something for it a few years back.

Oh, no. Toastmasters International has been around since 1924.

At the moment, Chuck, I believe it's just for SRS Microsystems' UK customers - so both dealer and country specific. I think it's fair to say that SRS is the UK's biggest and most prominent Pentax dealer, so this probably represents both a sales push by Ricoh and a "thank you" to SRS for their previous and continued Pentax sales efforts...

Ah ha, thank you for the information, now I can understand. I figured there was a reason or two.

Somebody should find the USA's biggest Pentax dealer (B&H?) and persuade them to offer something similar.

Now that would be a happy thought and I bet it would get plenty of entrants.

Did anyone attend a webinar?, if so what did you think of it?

I missed out as I applied too late even though it is my posting I thought it was a web conference rather than a one to one thing.
