Well that's nice. They should also brand their cameras as "vegan." And I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for a more Eco-friendly camera, either.

Pentax USA doing a marketing-related activity!? We've entered bizarro world Adoption and spay/neuter are good causes and it's good to see Pentax associated with them. My wife and I have 3 rescues.

Awesome! Will this be like that video of the dog shot with the Q I wonder?

Ad as a relative newcomer to the Pentax world (I got my K-x about a year and a half ago, and didn't follow news until recently) did Pentax do stuff like this under Hoya? Or is this the hand of Ricoh pushing Pentax into grand new places?

There are different types of materials that can be used in order to market it as.. less damaging to the environment and cruelty-free.
