Changes to V1.11
- Corrected – When shooting image after using the Built-in flash, Exif data of shutter speed is not updated on Version 1.10.
- Added automatic reset function when detecting rarely occur abnormal motion of the sequence.
(When automatic reset function is operated, latest setting will be reset)
*Contents of [Version 1.10] and earlier version will be also updated.
Frankly, I really don't completely understand what is updated and what's new. Fix an EXIF tag bug and an auto-reboot function when something goes wrong? :-o

My special thanks to Blog readers sazon3 and Mistral75 for the links and alerts.
Now, I like the outlook of the camera more, at least not hating it, call me emotional if you like! ;-D And also, at least now there is not a Ricoh logo on the body which is really disgusting as it is seen on the back of the K-3, I have to say! >:-(
As for the size of this new K-s, I think it is comparable to the previous smallest Pentax DSLR body ever, the Pentax *ist DL2, which I also have. But it will not be heavier, I believe. Modern camera bodies should become lighter and lighter, when quality and weight are both sucked out by the manufacturers at the same time! ;-P

Utter ugly, silly and toyish look! It's indeed a stupid design for this appearance!! OMG!!! >:(
Update: This new body will be small, comparable to the Canon EOS100D, but not considerably smaller. Look:

All Q lenses are designed for 1/1.7" sensors for their image circle, of course, which seems to be the maximum size of a sensor that can be put into any Q body.
Speaking of lens patents, RP has yet got another new lens patent of an ultra-wide lens used with 43 sensors, but what 43 camera and system they have? So, this is mysterious:
N.B. All the original links above are in Japanese.
See what Photocritic refers:
A free 200FG flash and a 16GB SD card will be complimented. Note that the code you enter during checkout could be either "PENTAXJUNE" or "SUMMERSALE".
Btw, it seems that something new is coming, or the K-mount line is to be discontinued! ;-P

Probably, this is just a Q7 with an original Q shell in a different painted dress, i.e., a 1/1.7" sensor inside. As an original Q user, I am sure that I will not buy one. The colour game of Pentax and Ricoh is just a history for me and I am sure I shall not buy a new Pentax camera anymore for the sake of its colour and appearance, unless Ricoh yet produces something real in the future, which they have not done that for long! >:(
