Anyone notice the Nationwide commercial in which a de-branded K-01 is stolen and instantly replaced?

(at 19")

Yep, I picked that up when I saw the commercial the first time or two. Someone on the crew of the commercial likes Pentax!

Yeah, me too. Say what you will about the looks of the K-01, but it's definitely distinctive. (Personally, I love it, but that could just be the decade and a half of design experience talking.)

I think the overall visual design is nice, but the implementation needed some work. The rubber cover for the memory card area is a bit too flimsy and the trap door for the memory card is not easily opened unless you have long finger nails (I keep mine short). I think they should re-issue it with some improvements, like weather sealing!

Watching Let's Make A Deal today, behind curtain #2 was a yellow K-01 as part of a digital camera package. Didn't get the name spoken out loud, but featured a nice closeup of the camera.

The things you see when watching network daytime television... I was more excited than I should have been, as evinced by the raised eyebrows of my wife at my outburst of delight.

I get the same response from my wife when I spy a P38A Range Rover on TV!

Speaking of commercials, I've been thinking that the woman in the first segment of the Dassault Systemes commercial is using a Pentax, perhaps a Kr. It goes by quick so I'm not sure but it looks like a storm trooper white and black body.

unfortunately the lens release button is definitely not a Pentax. Watch it again and pause it. And seeing the shape of the dome for the pop up flash, not Kr at all.

I guess you're right. I was fooled by the color combo.

Well, it might be a white K-30 with a covered Pentax logo. The grip sure seems identical, along with the color scheme.

I recently watched a programme on BBC featuring a flying archaeologist. He was using a Pentax to take photographs out of the aircraft. I think it was a K-5, but it could have been a K-7.
