Pentax FLUCARD 16GB O-FC1 out of sales


For some weeks I have ordered from a local dealer a Pentax Flucard 16GB O-FC1. Last week I received a rejection that this product is no longer available.

Then I ordered this weekend this FLUCARD 16GB O-FC1 at an online store here in Switzerland. Unfortunately I received from them a cancellation of the order with the remark to please specify an account for the refund. This does not sound as "temporarily unavailable".

Can we expect next week at the Photokina perhaps a new, revised Pentax Flucard?

Let us surprise us. I will no longer order one until I get concrete facts!

Considering that the card received a firmware update just a few days ago, I don't believe it will be discontinued anytime soon. The real solution is in-camera wi-fi, and Pentax still has a ways to go before that'll happen.

Well since I just ordered a K-3 bundle with FLU, and its all shipped, heading my way, my guess is that the European warehouses didn't stock enough of them, or that they were all diverted to the US to help with the bundle sales.

I think the European and US Flucard are not 100% identical because here in Europe we have different Frequencies and also restriction on the Broadcast Power a the units.

It would be great if Ricoh makes an Update of the K-3 with builtin Wifi and GPS (e.g. Pentax K-3ii)
