I think their biggest mistake was forgetting about marketing/ads altogether. It's non-existent, even in Japan where they have a more significant share of the market.
Yes, you're correct - It's almost as if they did not have a marketing department!

Is it possible that they just do not have or cannot obtain production facilities to allow them to go after North America as aggressively as we would like.

You think it's a production volume issue?

I have no information but it might explain the weak marketing in North America.

I don't think that's it. Pentax cameras probably have low demand compared to Canikon, so production capacity/output is probably not the issue. Good marketing is the issue. People just think that Canikon and Sony are the only choices when it comes to digital imaging products. Most people are completely unaware that Pentax even exists, let alone that they offer better choices for beginners and prosumers at competitive prices.

You're obsessed about video, Kadajawi ... not many are.

One person even said they didn't give a "rat's" about it!

Buy a GH4.

I was joking. I am actually curious about what his cousins said, because the K-30 is a rather fine camera. Why would they buy some other brand instead?


And not really obsessed. Disappointed, mostly, that Pentax puts plenty of effort into improving the K-3 for video, but screw up the most important part of it... the actual image quality. The improvements for audio quality are appreciated, but wasted.

Mh... yes, but higher end Nikons have great compatibility with old Nikon lenses, AFAIK. Exceeding what Pentax does. And then there are the mirrorless cameras, which tend to be able to take pretty much everything that was ever made.

How do they exceed what Pentax does?
