Pentax Full Frame and K-S2 images from CP+ Yokohama

Some image I shot today at CP+ event in Yokohama.
The FF was just a plastic prototype, no new details about it... all was focused over the new K-S2, a nice camera in my opinion

A full frame with flip-out screen just like Nikon D750 ! Awesome.

The button layout is almost the same as K-3 except the red LV/REC is gone for good.

A string and a luggage lock securing the K-S2. How cute.

Nice photos, thank you for posting them.
Great to see the hotshoe was kept on this camera.

Nice flip-out screen on the FF, also, doesn't seem to have onboard flash.

We may see one yet - it depends on whether the peaked prism housing reflects the actual prism size or is a decorative touch. If you look closely, the "flipout" screen is all a single piece with the rest of the body with no seam or articulation. It could be that the front of the prism housing will eventually also be a detachable piece that flips up to reveal on-board flash.

That could explain the huge size of the top of the camera. I tought the pentaprism was just big!

On closer inspection the little "lip" on the front of the housing above the Pentax logo might also be pointing toward an eventual flipout flash there.

Where exactly do you see a flip-out screen ?

Is the "crystal" finish back for the K-S2? It looks like the white paint on the KS-2 has some shine on it. I love the crystal white on my K-30, but I saw a K-50 at Target with the matte white, and I thought it was horrible.

From interviews they have said the FF will not have a pop-up flash. The shape of the pentaprism also suggest the same (if there was a flash it would be flat on top). Does anyone know if the new DA 18-50mm built is with hard plastic of metal or both?

Geez, there is no glass in the viewfinder and the rear LCD doesn't have an actual hinge. This thing really is a fake plastic mock-up, could have been printed on a 3D printer. The only thing this proves is that Ricoh is willing to advertise that they are working on a FF. We can't really interpret any of the implementation or features based on this.

Pentax just took the Canikon "big black lump of plastic" concept to the next level...

I agree, a 3d printed mockup is a bit of a sloppy presentation, they should have done a better job

Granted, they did put the Pentax name on the front, but that's probably just a sticker or some white paint that someone applied by hand. But they didn't even bother to put green paint on the green button, etc.

I guess a willingness to discuss the subject of FF is better than nothing.
