In May this year I am looking to buy a camera for vlog's while I travel - so small, light, flip screen and 4K video is the specification. My budget for this gear is up to USD $4,000. The first project I need to use this camera on is in Vanuatu in early August, so the purchase is planned for late May to allow time to test the camera/lens functionality and use.

Unfortunately no Pentax camera currently meets this specification, and I am starting to look elsewhere (Panasonic, Sony or Fuji), although I like the Pentax system and I have plenty of Pentax lenses that would be suitable for the projects planned.

I would be happy with an updated K-70 with a video specification to 4K or even full 1080p with 60/120fps. Or a small light Pentax mirrorless camera with a good video spec. would also do the job nicely.

As others have already noted, video has not been a Pentax priority, and this has been noted in user surveys and by company reps. As a result, I am not at all hopeful regarding Pentax providing such a camera any time soon.

When I currently travel I take my K-3 and really enjoy the output for stills.

An option would be a K-P or K-70 and see if I can live with the video output in the interim. I can only take one camera and a few lenses while travelling, so I am loath to move away from Pentax if I don't have to.

In summary I would be very happy if Pentax released a small, light K-mount DSLR or mirrorless camera with a decent video specification, and would buy the camera as soon as it was released.
