Pentax Full Frame Video - Dutch



Who can translate? I know he is showing some old D-FA* zooms that still have the green ring, but what is he saying about the FF viewfinder? About 1 minute 15 seconds into the video he starts talking about the prism. Is he making a reference to the Pentax 67 when he is talking about the OVF of the new FF?


My understanding of the Dutch language doesn't go any farther than my ability to spell "Dutch".

He's just saying that the shape of the prism housing (not necessarily the actual prism itself, of course) is a nod to the Pentax 67 camera designs of yore. Although this may not be that informative as regards the prism and viewfinder, it is a wonderful bit of detail from Ricoh showing real respect for some classic Pentax history. After hearing that delightful accent, I suddenly have an urge for some kroketten with mustard...

Thank you. I'm hoping they will do more than simply give the 67 a design nod. I'm hoping we see the biggest, brightest FF OVF on the market.

The rep is forum member Mike Muizebelt (Mousehill).

No real news, he shows the prototype body (which is made of aluminium according to the interviewer) and the new 70-200 and 150-450.

It was a imaging show some weeks ago in Holland. I didn't attend this year, but went some editions in a row last years. Always good speakers, Scott Kelby was there this year and you can hear him on the sunday report:

Basicly they are excited about having the FF block in tha house. Apperently that is more exciting then 21 working FF camera models from other brands.
