but, btw, if it can take 6AA, and if it doesnt have any features of its own apart from holding batteries, then why not allow it to take 2 extra batteries instead of just one, for a total of 3 batteries. now 2 is a lot already but I have to imagine the video recording will eat battery. live view as well.

would be cool to have a second sd card slot tho. dont know why so few manufacturers have done that. one cool way of using 2 slots is to split the images accross them to clear the buffer twice as fast by writing the first image of the burst to the first card while writing the second image to the second card at the same time. hell if you could do that on the body and add another 2 slots to the grip you can write off 4 images at the same time, I imagine soon you could do very long bursts

Does anybody else lament the loss of the chrome shutter release button? Nothing better than handing the camera to someone unfamiliar and saying "just push the silver button"...
I like a little chrome/polished look...the K2000 looks very nice to me I only with the DBG2 also has a chrome button...





Woohoo...almost in the top 10 posters in this thread!

Battery is 7.4 Volts. 8.3 volts with AC adapter,. But 9 Volts with 6 AA lithium batteries. What can we do with 9 volts that can not be done with 7.4?

AA LiMH batteries are 1.2V only. So, six of them just makes them work reliably. Great job! 9V don't cause any harm if designed in. Which is why the camera features a battery recognition.

Well the show's nearly over but the real fun is just about to begin. Despite the ( possibly) unintended leak yesterday Pentax must be pretty happy with themselves. They got free targeted advertising to almost half a million potential buyers.
I look forward to reading the real specs while enjoying a spot of " afternoon tea".
Damn civilised release time , chaps!
