Pentax K-7

Alright, maybe not too exciting, but at least they are not afraid to do this. I think he did this a few times already. Please consider that the bucket is filled with water around 1cm too.
So lens could be potentially be fried if it wasnt good enough.

But nope! fired a few shots perfectly. Checked SD card slot. Perfect.
I asked him about the flash, and guess what, he let me popup the flash and use it right away.

He just keep giving me the "dare to try it" attitude.
So i did abuse the demo pretty bad with the water.

Pentax K-7

Anyhow, it was real fun seeing him do that.
Wish they have a fishtank like the olympus booth.
But i guess it's really impossible to prevent leak when it comes to water pressure...
Its a dslr afterall, i guess.

Please dont ask me why did i take all these pictures with a canon. My istDL is getting serviced. But i stayed loyal of using PK lens on my canon.

BTW, sorry for blurry picture, i had a 28mm marco lens attached when he had the demo, it's too much of a hassle to change to another lens at that point of time.

It will be pretty difficult for HoyaTax to refuse any warranty water damage repairs after those images, huh? Save them...
