Italian photojournlaist with Pentax camera on CBS newscast

At the CBS News website is a story, broadcast Saturday, about work by longtime Italian photojournalist Letizia Battaglia. A Pentax camera is shown during the segment.
Later I intend to post a longer message with links to some articles I found about Ms
Skimming some articles, I found no reference to her use of any Pentax cameras, but I saw one mention of another brand.
Some of her work is graphic black and white phtography of homicide scenes.

correct title is photo-journa-lay-waste

Jokes aside, she's pretty well-known & pretty good at what she did/does.
