The teensy Q cameras flopped in the US, but they remain central to Pentax's effort to rebuild its business and brand. Also coming: a big price cut for the K-50 SLR -- and leaf-shutter lenses for the beefy 645Z.
In addition to being a relatively small dSLR, Pentax put glowing buttons on the entry-level K-S1.
Pentax hopes to attract a new group of dSLR buyers with some design flash and an updated control layout.
For its Q series update, Pentax more toned-down color options.
A new lens for its 654 system includes all of Pentax's latest tech.
Though it's still a tiny interchangeable-lens compact, it has a more refined design and color palette than its predecessor, the Q7.
The Ricoh WG-4 (with and without GPS) and WG-20 offer the same durable construction that the series is known for, as well as a new mounting system for action cam lovers, and it officially drops the Pentax name from point-and-shoots.
Among several other enhancements, this successor to the 645D is the first in the category to capture video as well as 51-megapixel stills.
For the K-3, Pentax changes everything from the sensor to the controls.
