Pentax unveils GPS add-on for DSLR cameras

Posted in Pentax by Conner Flynn on June 5th, 2011

The O-GPS1 is a GPS unit that allows geotagging of images. It attaches to your camera and allows the camera to add latitude, longitude, altitude, UTC capture time and direction as image metadata. Then you can use the data to place images in mapping software like Google Earth or just use it to organize your files.

If you own the K-5 and K-r models, you can use the ‘Astrotracer’ feature which predicts the movement of celestial objects and uses the sensor shift mechanism to track the movement to give astrophotographs with single points, rather than star-trails. Stargazers will love this feature.

Pentax Rainbow K-r

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2011

The Pentax Rainbow K-r is pretty loud as far as colors on a camera go. If you like rainbows and need a new DSLR, then you might want to check out these limited edition cameras before they’re gone. This version is designed in collaboration with Tower Records.

The style is much less serious than your typical digital camera. This one shouts fun. Maybe they got the idea when some guys at the factory had a paintball fight one night. Only 300 of these are produced so you might want to pre-order one. Only 300 of these were in the factory the next morning when the boss came in, so that’s it. $1,100

Pentax offers NB1000 Lego-like camera

Posted in Pentax by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2010

The NB1000 from Pentax is all about customization. It is identical to the RS1000 and comes with a Lego-like body, allowing you to customize your camera with different blocks that come in several sizes and colors. It’s basically just a cheap ploy to get Lego fans buying the camera.

The NB1000 is a 14.1-megapixel camera with a 4x zoom. It is capable of recording 720p video too. Looks like this one is for the Japanese market only though. It will be available later this year for 20,000 Yen ($238).

The new version of the K-x that Pentax has unveiled today is ever uglier than that bright orange version from last month. The new K-x is only going to be offered in Japan and looks like a rainbow exploded.
