Pentax hopes to attract a new group of dSLR buyers with some design flash and an updated control layout.
Though it's still a tiny interchangeable-lens compact, it has a more refined design and color palette than its predecessor, the Q7.
The German show lets photography enthusiasts try the latest cameras, lenses, and accessories. Here's what the conference showcased.
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.
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.
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.
While the camera still has the weather-sealed body and same basic design, almost everything else about the Pentax K-3 from sensor to control layout is different.
