I'm liking the key-lime pie and the blue drink one!

Pentax K-S1 Sweets Collection

Looks like Ricoh has released some new colors as well as some new product photos. I personally really like how they did these and find them to make the camera very appealing especially for ladies looking for a stylish camera option.

I really like the fun colors! They completely appeal to my sense of whimsey. The only problem for me is that I'm always going to buy the K-3 or its equivalent-- I'm not going to buy an entry-level camera just for the colors...

But are they PFR? (pie-filling-resistant)

Hmm, I'm hungry all of a sudden.

Apparently, they are calling the blue/white one "Blue Cream Soda", but we all know it's a Smurf!

They seriously need to do those colors in a K-50 or K-3 and get the outdoors stores to sell them, a lot of consumers there, with a lot of cash.

Pentax needs to remove this particular ad NOW!

It is a horrible Photoshop effort.

For a photography company this is a mortal sin.

I completely agree with you. A black and OD green K3 would have attracted me and so would a DA 560mm if I had that kind of money.

Just a full frame woman I'm sure.

I like the linen brown the best, I think, maybe.

I laughed when I got the e-mail from Ricoh with the awful Photoshop job. This has been e-mailed out to thousands of people. I think this piece was originally shot for the Q and they couldn't afford to hire a photographer, so they just Photoshopped the KS-1 in and shrunk it down to fit. They really aren't spending any money on marketing, or proofing apparently.

It appears to have been edited from this stock photograph

Well, they're conserving their resources for the cameras, right? Just call it streamlining
