Pentax in the movies!

I was just watching a new flick that came out in March 2008 called "Shutter", basically a remake of a 2004 horror movie from Thailand concerning a photographer and his girlfriend who are involved in a tragic auto accident and subsequently begin to notice ghostly figures in the backgrounds of their pictures. In one scene, just before the ghost injures the photographer, I saw this:





I'm not sure which model it is, but it appeared to be the K100D just by the layout of the back buttons and he also used the kit lens, which is surprising since he is supposed to be a professional photographer shooting models. One would think he would have used a better lens for this.

It IS good to see though that Pentax product placement is happening in the movies!

I noticed too, but just now I couldn't remember which movie I saw it in so thanks for reminding me

Not a movie, but Claire in the TV series Six Feet Under is using some K-series body I believe. I'm not sure which.

Tour de France, not in a movie but on tele

as many of you may be aware of, there is now the Tour de France going on.
On Dutch tele there si each evening a talkshow-like program covering the tour and each day they invite a guest. Last week they had a TV presenter who likes photography so he was followed while shooting.
He carried a Pentax.

In a swedish commercial for Loka (mineral water), there is a pro-photographer who is using a Pentax 67 (well, they've erased the Pentax logo, but I'm sure it's the Pentax 67, the one with a wooden handle)

Hmm, well I think it's a commercial for Loka, I almost only noticed the camera

At the very beginning of Shutter, the wedding photographer is using a Pentax 645 too.
