Nice visualisation of the full-frame.

But really all we have before us at present is a high-tech version of this kind of older molded plastic and clay (?) model, as seen here for the K-3:


We shouldn't read too much into what we are seeing on display at the moment. Like the K-3 model, many a button or bump on the full-frame model may appear or disappear as the ergonomics are refined, and the camera moves closer to production.

From the pictures...I can't see how it "won't" have a flip out screen.
If it doesn't have a flash, no biggie for me, although I do use one on the K3 from time to time.

Not a deal breaker in any way for me to buy the FF.
Even if the FF doesn't have video, it will still not be a deal breaker.

The FF as *just* a stills camera would be awesome to go with my K3 workflow!!

But...if this camera is going to go that route...it have better have awesome low light performance, great IQ, fast frame rates and everything that goes with a "scaled down 645z" which would work just fine with me too.

I can't imagine not having video of some sort, but regardless, I will be buying the FF when it is available....even pre-ordering it when it's available.

I meant that it has a tilting screen...

I've scaled the K-3 vs K-2 to demonstrate that this new camera is quite a bit bigger than the K-3. It is much more like my Nikon D800

The new FF has no flash! Even worse, it has no textures, there are no labels, and the buttons cannot even be pushed in! Its almost like what we are seeing isn't even a finished product or something [/sarcasm]

I don't see why the lack of a popup flash on a pro body is a handicap. Few high end cameras include one. Even in my amateur shooting, for fill flash or evening/night shooting, the popup flash barely gets any use. I grab the AF540FGZ preferentially every time.

As for wireless shooting, again, the range of wireless shooting having an external flash body is greatly improved, especially in daylight, and I have found two flashes bail me out greatly in such settings.

It is possible that the FF body could also incorporate radio triggering.

If that will actually happen, then the missing built-in flash is not such a big deal.

It's truly amazing that people are speculating on what the new FF camera will and will not have from a plastic unfinished model. This is not a prototype!!!! Ricoh has'nt even finished the final design of the camera yet and much less finalized what features will be included in the camera. Why do you think Ricoh Imaging just days ago sent a survey asking the uses what features they would like to see included it it.

No way will they skip video functions on this camera. Just remember how much flak Nikon got for the df not having video.

Mic and headphones jacks will be under the flap doors for sure.
