Pentax Teams Up With World Famous Artist To Make Colorful Cameras
The digital camera company links up with one of Time's 100 Most Influential People to create a sleek new machine.
Love quality cameras and fine art? Then turn your attention the launch of the new PENTAX K-01 interchangeable lens camera collaboration with internationally heralded designer Marc Newson. During his already illustrious career, Newson’s artwork has graced some of the world’s most venerable museum collections around the world, including the MoMA in New York, London’s Design Museum and V&A, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Vitra Design Museum. Recently, Newson was even ranked as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time Magazine.
His new project, with the PENTAX K-01, is an interchangeable lens camera featuring 16.28 megapixels, high-speed burst shooting, an extra-wide sensitivity range with a top sensitivity of ISO 25600 and Full HD video recording.
Coming to us via the PENTAX RICOH IMAGING COMPANY (the first to develop colour digital SLRs and front customizable compacts) Newson’s camera has clean and simple lines that derive from his three design themes — TIMELESS, TRUSTY and TOUCHABLE — while still providing a multiplicity of advanced functions and user-friendly features generally associated with a digital, interchangeable lens camera.
The PENTAX K-01 comes in the following color combinations and will be available from end March 2012:
-Black with black grip
-Black with yellow grip
-Silver with black grip
