JVC to buy Pentax?


Mark Peters : 2009-11-05 05:00:00
JVC Kenwood Holdings to buy Pentax Camera Division? : Where there is smoke, most of the time there is also a fire. An article in an apparent economic newspaper from Japan claims to have information about the possible sale of the Pentax camera division by the Hoya Corporation to… JVC Kenwood Holdings. Now let that be a surprise, granted when the information is actually true. What we find remarkable is the official reaction that Hoya very quickly gave with the announcement that the aforementioned article was not based on fact. If it speculative or not, in all appearances there is something brewing at the Pentax camera division. A few days ago the CEO of Hoya, Hiroshi Yamada, commented in a certain direction.


Pentax online camera store


Mark Peters : 2009-11-04 10:37:35
Pentax online camera store to replace current dealers? : Is this the beginning of the end of the Pentax camera dealer? The news that Pentax Europe will open its online Imaging System stores in Germany, the UK, France, Switzerland and Hungary, does not seem like positive news for photo camera stores. For the traditional camera store, there is already a lot of competition online, so that the strategic move that Pentax will make with its online camera store might be the last straw. By setting up the Pentax online camera store, consumers in the countries named can order directly from Pentax. Undoubtedly a suggested retail price will be used, but in any case it will take away profits from the camera stores.


Pentax camera division merging with Samsung?


Mark Peters : 2009-11-03 11:40:00
Pentax digital camera division merging with Samsung? : In the past, camera manufacturers like Fujifilm, Pentax, etc. dominated the international photo business. It was virtually unthinkable that electronic manufacturers could make the leap and claim a market share. However, the digital picture era changed all of this. Various camera brands experienced great difficulty in making the switch from analogue to digital, with Kodak being the biggest example. Pentax is also one of the manufacturers that seems unable to claim a significant market share. It is not the products that are to blame, the Pentax DSLR cameras are mostly welcomed warmly by the trade press. Is there a partnership coming up?


Pentax review : K7 DSLR camera


Dennis Hissink : 2009-10-29 15:00:00
Pentax K7 review : The DSLR market is dominated by Nikon and Canon and they certainly keep an eye on each other. However, this is something that often proves to have a somewhat negative influence on the creativity of the manufacturers, as it generally means they lose a little bit of their daring. Fortunately however, there are also smaller brands such as Pentax. These smaller brands do not need to worry about whether or not they are number one. They just make cameras the way they think they should be. A little cocky at times, but that is only healthy. The Pentax K-7 is one of these cameras.

Pentax camera review : K7 photo gallery


Dennis Hissink : 2009-08-10 21:30:00
Pentax K-7 picture gallery : During my stay in Las Vegas, where I attended the PMA 2009 Imaging Convention and Trade show, there was already talk behind closed doors of a shortly expected Pentax digital SLR camera. The first information we gathered sounded promising, yet it was too early (February 2009) to reveal the news. Internet rumors kept growing however, and three months later, the Pentax K-7 DSLR was finally officially introduced. A DSLR camera from the middle-segment, yet a camera with refined features. The Pentax K7 is a typical SLR for the demanding user. The wealth of advanced functions and user-friendly features in a high- quality housing make the Pentax K-7 a high-end model from the Pentax K-series DSLR cameras.

Pentax digital cameras at PMA


Dennis Hissink : 2009-03-10 01:32:00
Pentax digital cameras at PMA 2009 : Pentax also attended PMA 2009, but the booth didn’t leave much to the imagination. The compact, completely white booth looked more similar to a sales booth than one for demonstrating and showcasing products. Naturally, the digital SLR cameras of Pentax were showcased as well as a new 15mm f/4 lens, although there was hardly any news, if even any at all, about DSLR cameras. Obviously, Pentax did not consider the PMA to be the right time to make an announcement. If you have doubts about a Pentax announcement coming up, be patient... for one or two months. By that time, we will reopen the Pentax book to add a new chapter...


Pentax medium format camera


Ilse Jurriën : 2009-03-07 00:22:00
Pentax medium format camera at Photo Imaging Expo : According to a publication in the popular UK magazine Amateur Photographer, Pentax will appear at the next show in Japan with its digital medium format camera. A few years ago, Pentax announced the development of a digital medium format camera, and the model even received a name: Pentax 645 Digital. After that, however, the plan was stored on a shelf and seemed doomed to stay there. In an interview with John Carlson, product marketing and support manager of Pentax USA, Amateur Photographer was told that Pentax foresees possibilities on the Japanese market for this product. The upcoming Photo Imaging Expo, starting at the end of March in Tokyo, will be used to present the Pentax 645 Digital again.


Pentax X70


Ilse Jurriën : 2009-03-05 23:45:00
Pentax X70 Megazoom digital camera : Pentax Imaging has announced the Pentax X70 Megazoom digital camera featuring a high magnification 24X optical zoom lens with wide-angle to super-telephoto coverage housed in a highly portable, compact, lightweight body.

The lens will ship in April 2009 for $649.95 USD, while the Pentax X70 will ship in April 2009 for $399.95 USD.


Pentax X70


Ilse Jurriën : 2009-03-02 19:55:00
Pentax X70 Megazoom digital camera : Just before the PMA 2009 Show kicks off, rumors and leaks are daily business. Most brands have already introduced their new digital camera line-up, but still no word from Pentax so far. However; we strongly believe that a new Pentax DSLR is on its way. The following text is a copy of the information we have received from an active Pentax forum member. Until we receive the official information we consider the following information still as unofficial.


Pentax hybrid digital camera coming up?


Dennis Hissink : 2009-03-01 20:24:04
Pentax hybrid camera to be launched? : The German magazine Colorfoto has published an article about the new Olympus E-620 camera with a product shot that is certainly not an Olympus DSLR but appears to be a Pentax camera that could not be identified so far. This close to the PMA show, a continuous flood of speculations, one after the other, appears, and all we can do is wait and see what's going to happen. At this moment, all we know about the new Pentax camera is what we can decipher on its back. The camera lacks an optical viewfinder, but does sport an electronic viewfinder (EVF) and a large sized LCD monitor. This seems to indicate a large optical zoom range or a hybrid digital camera.
