I wanna see Ned rock Yellowstone with one of these, as a marketing exercise. And the Grand Canyon. And all those other US photographic landmarks.

That thread should be "Pentax give Carlos and Steve 645D's". We need to cover both coasts.

Sounds catchy! This thing could go viral!

Time to get this on the social networks! Someone call Oprah!

I have sold photos professionally and I helped a good friend of mine get his render done for a billboard on Times Square (Mini Cooper Robot). I have way too many computers.

It is seriously tempting to do this...
  • First...The Facebook page!
  • Second...The video!
  • Third...The blogosphere!
All the old boy needs is a chance and a decent CAMERA! Lets see if we can get him (me) one! What do you say Pentax!

It can be couched as an experiment:

"We gave two aspiring professional photographers the new Pentax 645D and told them to go nuts. Here's what they accomplished..."

This would follow with a mixed slideshow of our best bits accompanied by some appropriate music, punctuated by sound-bites from you and me commenting on our experiences with the camera and why it is totally worth it.

It's always worth a free something, let alone a MF camera!

Sounds like the formula for a great sit-com

Seriously though...Pentax are you listening? This is truly a great idea, sort of like reality TV for photographers!
