K-30 or K-50 on TV

Not sure where to post since it's kind of silly...

I was watching the TV show Bones and in this week (or last week... the last one on the DVR...) one of the character is using a white (stromtrooper) K-30 or K-50.

I was so excited I had to pause and rewind to make sure.

I'm glad to see a Pentax on TV, even if the name is taped up...

I can help you identify it: If it's ugly, it's a K-50. But if it's fricken' beautiful, then it's a K-30.

My first thought was a K-30 but I have doubts. I'll try to get a screen grab

Cool! They could at least have used white tape, it is so obvious.
That looks like a k-30 with the slanted nameplate.

To bad about the label taping Canon and Nikon must pay royalty fees because I see those labels all the time.
