Those are great images Kobie! How did you achieve the first one? (The car shot)

I've not been on PPG for ages but I see it's been updated and voting is much quicker than in the past.

Aha. Slick. Note even third base.

Don't worry. As soon as the specs are released, someone will complain that it does not have 547 AF points and someone else will complain that it can't shoot 8K video. ;)

Baseball? I did not know it was played in the rain. How about that.

Maybe that part of this camera is unfinished? I don't know. One thing I find interesting is the depth of the body which seems deeper front to back than previous models. So, maybe they have found a way to integrate a swivel screen more effectively.

I agree, it seems odd to go back to a fixed screen. All I'm saying is that it would not bother me personally. And, that framing of the margins of the screen is a little strange. We'll have to wait and see! :)

I'm willing to bet you could not be more wrong if you tried. :)

Have a look at the photos:







This is no "one off body shell". It's very clearly very nearly production ready. Mock-up shells don't show that level of detail. Note too that it already has a model name, which is simply taped shut with a bit of black masking tape. If it was a mock-up, that level of detail would be highly unlikely to be present.

The thing I'm most surprised about is how few functions are on the top control wheel, compared with the K-1II.



K-1 for comparison purposes:



As someone who never uses the screen articulation of the K-1II, I would not view the lack of rear screen articulation as a design fault. I wonder if they decided to go in favour of weather protection over flippy screen?



There's no way this camera is not very nearly production ready. No design department produces such a production ready prototype simply to convince their bosses to produce the product.

It's much too slick for a one-off prototype.

Well, I'll support the Springboks until they lose to the All Blacks and then I'll support the All Blacks. Simple really! :lol:

Edit: The Springboks have already lost against the All Blacks. Drat.

Nope, just the curve of the body. Have a look for the corresponding curve at the top right of the LCD.

Strikingly similar button and dial layout to the K-1:

Common feature with touch-screens. Ensures that your nose does not operate the touch screen by turning off the touch functionality when your face is near the camera.

Something else I have just noticed: Note the button to the left of the AE Metering button. On the K-1, that button on the very left is the LV (Live View) button. Why would they blank out the LV script on the button?

That's the card access lamp. Same location as on K-1.

Shape, dial placement looks much like the K-1 and K-1II.

Built in GPS and no pop-up flash.

And, above and to the right of the green button is something which can only be a joystick.

I'm going to guess touch-screen too, based on what looks like a proximity sensor for touch-screen auto on/off directly below the viewfinder.

Well, well, well.

The image is interesting:


Shape, dial placement looks much like the K-1 and K-1II.

I'm going to guess dual card slots based on the size of the memory card door.
