After previewing this product at the Photokina 2014 event, Ricoh has finally announced it. The Pentax 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 weathersealed lens will be released for K-mount DSLR cameras by the end of November 2014. The optic will provide high image quality, which will be appreciated by landscape as well as portrait photographers.
Ricoh is expected to officially introduce the HD Pentax DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR lens on October 30. The company previewed the product at the Photokina 2014 event and the rumor mill is claiming that the K-mount lens is bound to become official soon. The claims are backed-up by a specs list and a press photo of the lens.
Ricoh has announced its follow-up to the Theta camera that records 360-degree panoramic photos. The brand new Ricoh Theta m15 comes with more color options and faster WiFi. However, the camera is now capable of capturing 360-degree videos for up to three minutes. Look for this camera in a store near you as of November 14.
Ricoh has just announced not one, but two replacements for the WG-20 rugged compact camera, which was introduced earlier in 2014. The brand new Ricoh WG-30 and WG-30W are now official with improved specifications and they are identical in all aspects except for one thing: the WG-30W comes packed with built-in WiFi.
The prayers of a multitude of Pentax fans will be answered in 2015. Ricoh has confirmed that the company is currently working on a Pentax full frame DSLR. Furthermore, it appears that the camera will be released sometime in 2015. On the other hand, three new K-mount optics were on-display at Photokina 2014.
Ricoh has decided to make a move into the action camera market. The company has used its experience with rugged cameras in order to develop the Ricoh WG-M1. The new action camera comes with built-in WiFi as well as the ability to dive underwater without an extra case. This affordable action cam will be released in October.
With Photokina 2014 being just a few weeks away, official announcements have started to pour it. After Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus, it is Ricoh’s turn to introduce a new product. The Pentax K-S1 DSLR camera is official and it is packing an LED illumination system that will indicate the device’s state among other details.
Ricoh has allegedly scheduled the Pentax K-S1 announcement date for August 28. The new K-mount DSLR camera has had more of its specs leaked on the web ahead of this date. An interesting information consists of the purpose of the LEDs built into the grip, which are said to display the state of the K-S1.
After having some of its photos leaked, an insider has leaked the Pentax K-S1 specs list. Additionally, two more photos of the upcoming DSLR have been revealed, confirming that the camera will be released in multiple color choices. The K-S1 is expected to be announced by Ricoh sometime prior to the start of the Photokina 2014 event.
Ricoh will allegedly introduce a new Pentax-branded camera in the near future. The first Pentax K-S1 photos have appeared on the web. They are detailing an ultra-compact DSLR camera with an interesting design. The shooter has some green LEDs embedded in the grip, whose purpose remains unknown for the time being.
Ricoh has officially revealed the Pentax HD DA 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR lens, wide-angle zoom optic aimed at Pentax 645-series medium format cameras. The new lens features a constant maximum aperture throughout the zoom range and offers a very high image quality. It will be released this August with a hefty price tag.
After several leaks during the past few days, the Pentax Q-S1 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is finally official. Ricoh has introduced this new Q-mount shooter with a 12.4-megapixel 1/1.7-inch-type image sensor and built-in sensor-shift Shake Reduction technology. The Q-S1 will be released by the end of August for $500.
New Pentax Q-S1 photos have appeared on the web. The mirrorless interchangeable lens camera has been leaked recently, with the rumor mill undecided on its name: Q2 or Q-S1. It seems like the latter is the right one, as it can be seen in the new set of leaked images. The Pentax Q-S1 camera will be announced sometime in the near future.
Sources familiar with the matter are claiming that Ricoh is preparing to launch the Pentax Q2 mirrorless camera and 28-45mm f/4.5 lens for medium format cameras. In order to prove it, the sources have also leaked some photos of these two products. Ricoh is expected to officially announce these products ahead of the Photokina 2014.
Weeks of speculation and rumors have not done enough justice to the Pentax 645Z medium format camera. Ricoh calls it a “game-changer”, a DSLR that will allow users to “achieve photographic distinction” thanks to a 51.4-megapixel CMOS image sensor, a maximum ISO sensitivity of 204,800, and full HD video recording.
