Pentax FluCard O-FC1 Review

What's in the Box

The Pentax FluCard is actually manufactured by TREK, a Singapore-based company specializing in digital storage media.  TREK is the original creator of the FluCard Wi-Fi protocol and has specially adapted it for use with Pentax cameras in the O-FC1.

With that said, the O-FC1 is distributed exclusively through Pentax (i.e. the Ricoh Imaging Company and its worldwide divisions) and sold through authorized Pentax retailers.  Don't buy a standard FluCard directly from TREK thinking that it will enable tethering with your Pentax, because it will not!

The box bears the Pentax and Ricoh logos and features the same design as other accessory packaging.

Inside the box, you will find the FluCard itself, a protective case, warranty information, and a multilingual setup manual.  Click here for a printable scan of the English portion of the manual.  This manual is accompanied by a PDF operation manual supplement which can be downloaded from the official Pentax/Ricoh web site.
