K-S2 battery grip

Does anyone know if there will be a battery grip for the K-S2?

No grip no glory. There won't be, there is no grip connector.

i think i know how to build one, the downside is that i need to get some more stuff besides my new K-S2 for the research and i'm currently.. well.. financially challenged. perhaps in a month or so i can start hacking, until then - patience my friends

Not a chance. Not much point either for a camera designed with ultimate compactness in mind. Buy a spare battery or two.

yes, that is the exact kind of motivational speech that gets me going, if i could only do the things that are actually technically possible, i would be out of job...

and to be honest - its more about large grip and vertical shooting buttons than about battery. most probably my prototype will have ony control features, extra power features can come later.

and the compactness - getting K-S2 is also about getting weather sealed body and good sensor when you can not afford K-3
i'm sure i'm not the only one who got K-S2 as a K-3 substitute and would appreciate reasonably priced grip for it

Nothing to do with techincal restraints, Pentax choose only to make grips for their flagship models. It's marketing strategy and business models. Want a grip? Easy - upgrade!
