"déclencheur de passion" means passion trigger, I think.

Vive La France.

Looks like the French territory is pretty well covered by a Pentax dealer every other 100 miles or so (blue patch = more than one shop offering Pentax full frame).

Good to see it is readily available.

Here in Singapore, we need to wait for stocks as the distributor has run out.

Yes, "déclencher" is a verb indicating in this case the action of "pressing the shutter button". They've done a play on words proposing that Pentax "triggers the passion of clicking pictures". Not too shabby, IMHO.[COLOR="Silver"]
