PDN Pulse published their Pentax K-1 announcement prematurely

Pentax K-1 camera 1
PDN Pulse already published their Pentax K-1 article online – check it out here:

“Ricoh has made its long-awaited foray into full frame photography official today with the launch of the Pentax K-1 DSLR, which is due to arrive in April for $1,800 (body).

The K-1 sports a 36.4-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor with no optical low pass filter and a native ISO range of 100-51,200. The image sensor can shift to provide 5-axis image stabilization with up to five stops of image correction, per CIPA standards. It also supports a Pixel Shift Resolution mode (similar to the one we tested on the K-3 II) where the sensor shifts by one pixel over a series of four images which are then merged in camera to create an image with less noise and more accurate colors.”

The technical specification and US pricing I reported earlier are now confirmed. The official announcement is tonight around 11 pm EST. Stay tuned for detailed coverage.

      A pro grade camera for 2/3 the price of its closest competitor and you wonder why I’m excited?
      I would be super excited if it was nikon that relaunched the d800 at this price point but even that is still $2200 if you can find a mint refurb.

      I also highly doubt the “where is the innovation folk” are the ones excited about this camera.

      I honestly do not give a rats ass anymore about that “innovation” that adds nothing to a camera’s photographic capabilities.
      The only one that did something interesting there in Olympus

      One does not choose Pentax for video. Pentax knows this too. The only reason people cope with a DSLR form factor for video is the size of the sensor and reduction of duplication in what you have to carry or what lenses to buy. DSLRs are B cams that people have adopted as A cams.
