Hi folks,

There's an interesting article over at Crave which indicates Pentax may be releasing "higher-grade SLR" in 2009. The article Pentax plan calls for higher-grade SLR refers. 8)

Good move. I can imagine some Pentax users have been waiting for a more demanding camera.

hi, so far i'm the Pentax user, in m country this brand is very low, however i did not pay attention and chose by model, not by name, K10D, is an amazing cam, does many things that i want and even more, however,
i came from P&S photography, and had live view and tilting LCD, which i miss, for composition of more creative of shots..

i have a question, do anyone of you, Pentax owners miss tilting or articulating lcd?
are there any roumors, of whether pentax is considering to make Dslr with tilting or articulating LCD?
do anyone of you have heard/read, or asked someone about it?

wow man that's a valuable thing! i wouldn't need any other camera.. if i had one of these..

i did not know that such gadget exists..

bet there doesn't say anything for pentax K10D, it says about older pentax cameras, but not for K10D particular..

if you saw somewhere written about this exact model i would appreciate the link.

thanks a million!

I wonder if anyone will do a "Zigview" in the form of virtual reality goggles?

here it is, if you click on the picture of zigview this will show up> http://www.zigview.co.uk/S2.htm


look on the pentax box theres the k10D , if you press the k10D link it wont show the k190D specific Zigview wich makes me wonder if its really compatible, but its a matter of searching on google or local stores... ill tell you more once i ind it ;)


Edit: ive searched for it and all sites states that the S2 B model fits the k10D so... http://www.morrisphoto.co.uk/ProductDet ... d~239.html



Bob- yeah that would be a great feature, 100% field of view and magnification!

You welcome! but anyway, since its a gadget that its not very comon in stores you might want to check the compatibility before order it just for the sake of it... =)
