The upcoming Pentax K-new flagship APS-C DSLR camera will have a fixed-type LCD screen



Ricoh released the third part of their “Product Stories of New APS-C” series where they discussed the use of a fixed-type LCD screen in the upcoming Pentax K-new flagship APS-C DSLR camera:

We decided to prioritize the development of a compact, sturdy body because it was one of the new camera’s most important design themes. We were able to reduce the depth of the camera between the lens mount and the LCD screen by optimizing the circuit board layout and downsizing the LCD components.

In addition, incorporating an angle-adjustable screen in a compact body often makes it difficult to increase the size of the LCD monitor. That’s why PENTAX decided to equip this new camera with a fixed-type 3.2-inch monitor. This was a decision based on our goal of allowing the photographer to confirm the image’s quality and composition on a larger screen at the shooting location, while still keeping with the basic design concept of a compact, sturdy body.
