Wow...the NEW K3D Next Week!!!

So it seems that next week is the big date for the new K3D with a Full Frame 27.5 mega pixel Samsung/Pentax CMOS sensor as well as Live View, Stereo HD Video at 30 fps with external stereo microphone input, built in "on body" stereo microphone with a proprietary wind cut system and sound zoom to lens provision, SR, New Sensor Clean ll, a new 25 point Auto Focus System with 32 point face recognition technology and iso from 50-6400 plus extended Low 25 iso and High 12800 iso. Will shoot at a continuous 5.5 FPS till the card is full. Not only that but the Battery Grip adds a Wi-Fi transmitter and augments the shooting speed to 7.5 FPS. I am impressed!

The recommended price of this baby will be $2995.00 and $329.00 for the optional Battery Grip...

Can't Wait!

I don't know anyone with a 32 point face, so it would be useless for me.

No espresso machine built-in?

Well, it can't hurt... That way you can shoot quickly in crowds and verify the face you want to focus on.

Hehe

Hopefully it will have a toilet plunger function too. That would be a no-fool feature to have.

Does it make coffee? I heard that you can use the latest Nikon as razors. If K3D does not make coffee, I'll switch!

You guys...What is April Fools? Is it a holiday or what? Never heard of it. Is that like "Fools Rush In"? Just wanted to share some info that I got from a guy I was going to see about a dog and he brought it up during a cigarette break.

Since Ned won't allow it to be sold in the U.S. I'm sending you a check for mine. The check is in the mail.

Great but that is USD price - Camera Canada has it on pre order for $18,760.00 CDN for the body and a mere $899.00 for the grip (battery not included) - sale price for one week only
