I see it's your first post to DPR. Welcome. Where did you get the image from?

Friend of mine send me this picture today. Maybe this picture is just a joke.

Mebbe from that 4/1 joke about a FF Pentax (K-3) that's becoming a little stale now...

...it should have been pulled by now from Pentax Forums, but apparently it hasn't...

Something like that is likely. Looks like a mid to low range DSLR with the 24 MP sensor. The Nikon d3200 is essentially that so it wouldn't surprise me to see similar from Pentax.

FAKE
In reply to viking79, May 12, 2012

Lower right corner. Bad cut and paste, good effort.

Waiting for the real thing.

Or not fake?
In reply to Ryhfeed, May 12, 2012

Sorry, my bad, the picture did not look that PSed when looking on a bigger screen than the smartphones. Now im not that convinced that its a fake, but the top prism and right top panel looks like a K10-20 and the bottom/ backside like K7-5.

Hm....

+1 on fake. Would have also been a little more believable if the camera happened to have more than 1 shot left on the memory card. The LCD appears too "good" looking to be capture on camera like that. It appears too bright in such a well lit image. I'd expect it to be less visible, as if you were using the camera in sunlight.I expect studio light to be similarly bright.

Can't comment on the image but the idea of an ISO50 24MP camera certainly sounds like an enticing proposition. Now if only Pentax could muster the guts to deliver another K-5 class package, we'd can all laugh our way to the printers.

FTR. here's what I'd like to see:

  • Bigger budder(24 RAW would be nice)

  • Better FPS selections. (3, 5, 8 FPS)

  • Better MF support! (focus peeking, quick LV zoom(hold), green button when magnified in LV)

  • Better AF - (much better would be great)

  • Improved video mode - higher FPS, manual control and AF

  • Flash synch revision? - (seems like a big deal for the flashers)

  • Bigger body - (I'd like a little more meat in hand anyways)

  • True NR: OFF - (oh how sweet that would be)

  • Tethering - (for the buffs but definitely welcomed)

  • Dual SD - (but not stacked, that's just too Nikonian)

  • Pano assist in LV - (overlapping frames between shots)

  • AF bracketing - (heaven for the macro kids)

  • Mirrorless stills - (hybrid between video mode and stills)

  • Better ISO - (better is better right)

  • Better DR - (why the hell not)

  • More color depth - (for bragging rights)

  • Weaker AA filter - (would love to get just a Little closer to those pixels)

K 200 D Super
In reply to Ryhfeed, May 12, 2012

To me it looks like a tuned K 200 D, merged with parts from a K-7. Some essential buttons are missing, the upper left button is a joker.

There's no trash button. This is the camera for the photographer who always gets the right shot. Thank you Pentax, you've finally designed MY camera, haha!

+2.5 for fake
In reply to dreamerxs, May 12, 2012

1st: either the view or delete button is missing

2nd: look at the hot shoe

2.5nd: would pentax return to the k200d design or would they be consistent with the K-7 / K-5?

BTW: the 001 counter for pics left on the card is not problem. I have a 16 MB SD that does exactly this

Have a nice weekend

Your first instincts were right and it does looks PS'ed.

The info screen on the LCD isn't even straight.

If it was real then I'd be disappointed as it looks to have the same old 11 point AF system that we've had since the *ist D

No, no, no. K-5 size is jusr about perfect. I put up with the K10/20 for years before the K-7 came out. I don't ever want to go back there.

There's a battery grip for people who like things bigger - don't force bigger on people who don't want it.
