Ricoh to release two new “affordable” Pentax compact film cameras in Spring 2024

In a recent interview, Ricoh Imaging Europe confirmed that Pentax will release two new “affordable” compact film cameras in Spring 2024:

“Last December we announced the launch of a film camera project. Of course, the project is still on track. It will see the light of day in spring 2024 with the arrival of two cameras. As far as the type of film camera that will be released next spring is concerned, it should, as a first draft, be two compact cameras, high-end in terms of technical specifications but not in terms of price. They will be relatively affordable. It’ll be a first draft, two compact cameras, followed by SLRs, of course, which are the cornerstone of this type of cameras.”
