Sounds like a great little point and shoot. Unfortunately, it's a point and shoot.

TCSJordan (the guy in the video) already posted this earlier. (Just mentioning this so you didn't think nobody cared about your post, or the camera. )

He certainly likes it. This has encouraged me to have a look at one.

Of course, he mentions the lack of a hot shoe a couple of times, and the lack of bounce capability as well. Forum members are not the only ones to miss that feature. Otherwise, it sounds like it was well received.

Interesting that his comment on the K01 was that it was "hideous and no one bought it." Yikes!

Oh yes, I noted that. I disagree with "hideous" and if "no one bought it" my name is "no one".

It really didn't sell well until they began blowing them out for a ridiculously low price.

I guess No One cares about price. Or, price can affect hideousness.

Price doesn't affect the hideousness. When reduced, it makes it more tolerable.

Why Pentax didn't simply make an all-black model is beyond me.

I'll take the fantastically hideous look of the k-01 over some fake retro want-to-be any day.
