pseudobreccia: I've always been a big Pentax fan and supporter...but these sample images are horrible! What the heck is Pentax thinking? I tend to believe that the camera will be really good...but this is no way to market a product and advance the bottom line! A 90-yr old grandma taking a photo for the first time with an iPhone could produce better images than the ones on display!

Making some image just at a better level ksn't a Secret known to just a few people, there are maybe a million peoplek who could do a better job. You have to want to!

Are you Pentax Police? The images are a way of presenting the Pentax FF camera to the world. No matter how you spinn this, these images are never doing a Job the way they should have. Ricoh is cheaping out on these images........Well then you get a burn on the but for doing so.

aftab: I wonder how many units they will have sell to make this camera profitable.

I do wonder if three years down the road things are different.

I think Hasselblad is loosing.

The Pentax 645Z with it's low price should make some sales. So maybe growing to 10.000 units is possible.

Where is that 50K number coming from? I don't think it is that many. My guess is maybe half of that sold.

RonHendriks: Hasselblad is the next to be absorbed.

A company like Hasselblad is like a vineyard. You are proud to own it, but the money bleeding will end that joy sooner or later.

RonHendriks: It is still in shops. And no mention of it being discontinuït for customers in The Netherlands. Was today in a Media Markt.

Yes I know, but maybe some people bought a Samsung yesterday not knowing and not being told by the salesmen in the shop!

technotic: The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

In the short run already some camera system have to disapear. We have so many new mounts the last years that they can't all survive.

RonHendriks: Not having a DC motor and not being wheaterseald is a designflaw I don't understand.

So basicly wheatersealing is something tp ignore in the future.

RonHendriks: Why no Android 5.0 Lollipop?
Why no 4G and make it a real smartphone?

So it's a superzoom with a small sensor.

meh.....

Problem with this is:

It's not a Phone!!!!!!!!!!

So it does not give people the camera they want without having to carry an extra device. Still taking a Phone and this camera. So probably this one is staying at home (or in the shop).

A very small niche. But stil a great system. You could also buy the Pentax 645Z for yourself and your best photofriend and still have money leftover to go to McDonalds.

Tonio Loewald: What's the resolution? This seems like something many people would want to know, yet it's missing from the press release. For comparison purposes, a VR Cave looks pretty terrible with HD resolution on every wall (~12MP); high quality VR caves need hundreds of MP.

https://theta360.com/spheres/samples/5bdbf9f8-3a15-11e4-bf19-52540092ec69-1

Looking at the examples of Ricoh's website, it looks to me like it really needs 2-5x more resolution before it's at all satisfying (and the dynamic range is pretty terrible too).

If it could do HDR stills it would be damn useful for environmental lighting (3D global illumination).

With 4GB memory and 4 hours video, it will be pretty limited in quality, unless there can go less hours recorded.

SeeRoy: "360 degree" panorama. Ok, what about the other axis? How many degrees? A true 360x180 "VR" (not my nomenclature) pano is not so easy to achieve. Where can we view examples of this miraculous product's output?

I had the first version once in my hands:
