645D in German TV prime time

Spotted this during prime time news special on German TV about Germany's presidential resignation (Wulff).

The photographer is depicted while shooting Germany's president.

Anyway, this is probably the first time I see a pro Pentax camera on the news!

So scarce to see this kind of back-office pictures on TV.
As scarce as German's presidents resignations i believe.

Could be the GPS module, or a wireless trigger

Definitely a flash trigger. Can't remember which model, but it's sold on fleabay. Funny that he didn't use a name brand one on a 10K camera

I spotted at "Bundespressekonferenz*" even a Leica M9 .
So CaNikon-ownership is not a condition for a membership at BPK .

@falconeye: thanks for posting (your nick is programme )

I don't understand why people bother with these on a Pentax and the resulting limitations regarding shutter speed.

I'd take the Cactus V5 or even Cactus V4 over the RF-602 any day.
