Pretty sure this is a pair of Pentax cameras in this ad

Just saw this ad (a friend is affiliated with a local franchise of this business, I'm not advertising them or such) and I'm pretty sure the neck straps say Pentax on them for both the cameras in this video. Not enough view of the two to really tell what the bodies are, but the lens hood in the side shot of the guy in the wheelchair looks like my 50-200WR hood, but it could be any moderate length lens with a cylinder-style hood on it, I guess. Interesting, at least, to see what I think are two Pentax cameras in this little ad. Sounds like at one point he's instructing her on using the AF button on the back of the camera, as well.

He is wearing a standard Pentax (blurred out) neckstrap and hers seems to have the protruding Pentax prism housing beak of the K-30 K-3 (see below).

I'd agree that the wheelchair user is most definitely using a Pentax Strap. The camera looks older - maybe K100D or K100d Super era?

My initial guess is that he's shooting a K10D K20D (interestingly, with the O-ME53 magnified eyepiece) and she's shooting a K-3.

He's definitely not shooting a K-30, based on the placement of the mode dial on the left flank of the prism housing.

Thought it was a cool find, anyway. Nice to see some Pentax use when many folks are unaware of the brand.

Yep, Pentax straps on both cameras and he takes a turn with both. One of the cameras is a K-3. I like the comment about the green light.

Nice catch. I just saw this one:

At 2:50 you can see a Pentax Telephoto lens. My first guess is that it's the M* 67 800mm 6.7 lens.
