Once again, the rumors have turned out to be true! Ricoh has just taken the wraps off of the Pentax K-3 II DSLR camera which comes packed with some differences when compared to its predecessor. The new K-3 II employs a Pixel Shift Resolution mode that shifts the sensor in order to capture higher-quality images among others.
The full Pentax K-3 II specs list has just been leaked on the web along with more photos of the DSLR. Recently, the rumor mill has revealed a single shot of the camera, but now the gossip talks have revealed more images, while confirming the Pentax K-3 replacement’s official announcement date: April 23.
Ricoh may be on the verge of announcing a new Pentax-branded DSLR. The rumor mill has leaked the first Pentax K-3 II photo, which is known to preface the introduction of a product. The brand new K-3 II seems to have a similar design to its predecessor, but you should refrain from conclusions before the official launch event!
Ricoh has patented one of the most interesting lenses of recent times. The optic in question consists of a Ricoh 16.4-500mm f/4-6.7 lens, which comes packed with a built-in diffractive optics element and a 2x extender. The latter is capable of providing a staggering 35mm focal length equivalent of 5600mm.
After announcing the development of a Pentax-branded DSLR with a full frame image sensor, Ricoh has forgotten all about revealing more information about the camera. Thankfully, such things are usually leaked and this is the case with the Pentax full frame DSLR release date and price details, which have showed up on the web.
After updating the roadmaps for all Pentax-branded lens mounts at CP+ 2015, Ricoh has patented a new lens, which could describe one of the models found in one of the roadmaps. The Pentax 18mm f/2.8 Macro lens has been patented and it describes an optic made for Q-mount mirrorless cameras with 1/1.7-inch-type sensors.
The CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 is underway in Yokohama, Japan and Ricoh has joined the event in order to make a few announcements. The company has released an updated Pentax lens 2015 roadmap, which reveals the new lenses that will become available soon for K-mount, 645-mount, and Q-mount cameras.
Ricoh has introduced some Pentax-branded products before CP+ 2015. It appears that the company has decided to focus on its brand as well, by announcing the Ricoh WG-5 GPS, a premium, rugged compact camera that replaces both the WG-4 and WG-4 GPS. The new shooter features an interesting photo mode, called Mermaid.
Ricoh is preparing for the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 with another record-breaking product. After announcing the world’s smallest weathersealed DSLR, the Pentax K-S2, the company has introduced the HD Pentax DA 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE lens, which is the world’s shortest standard zoom lens.
Ricoh returns with another event full of Pentax-branded product announcements. The new Pentax K-S2 has just become the world’s smallest weathersealed DSLR camera. The K-S2 is based on the original K-S1, but the new model comes without its predecessor’s uncanny LED illumination system and with a traditional design.
Ricoh has confirmed that it is developing a Pentax-branded DSLR camera with a full frame image sensor that will be on-display at CP+ 2015. However, the company has not revealed any technical details of the shooter. Thankfully, the rumor mill has just leaked the first Pentax full frame DSLR specs list, which includes a 36MP sensor.
Ricoh’s final announcement of the day consists of the second telephoto zoom lens designed for Pentax K-mount DSLR cameras with full frame image sensors. The Pentax D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6ED DC AW lens has become official bearing no more, no less than four autofocus buttons on its barrel and will be released next month.
As the rumor mill has predicted, Ricoh has introduced a new lens to prepare itself for the upcoming Pentax K-mount full frame DSLR camera. The HD Pentax D FA 70-200mm f/2.8ED DC AW lens has become official, promising to deliver a high image quality and high-performance for portrait, action, and sports photographers.
After years of constant praying, the dreams of Pentax photographers will become a reality by the end of 2015. Pentax has officially confirmed that a Pentax full frame DSLR camera is in development. Moreover, a prototype of the device will be displayed at CP+ 2015, while its release date is set to take place sometime this year.
At Photokina 2014, Ricoh said that it was planning to release a Pentax-branded full frame camera sometime in 2015. Although the company’s CES 2015 event has been focused on APS-C products, it appears that the HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/2.8 lens will be announced soon for DSLRs with full frame image sensors.
