PentaxPentax K-01 system camera : Pentax Ricoh Imaging announces its first interchangeable lens camera. Designed by Marc Newson, one of the most acclaimed contemporary designers, the Pentax K-01 looks as good from the inside as it does from the outside. With the 16 megapixel Pentax K-01 (pronounced ‘kay- zero-one’) system camera, Pentax pushes boundaries in terms of camera size, color, durability, and design. The timeless Pentax K-01 system camera houses a full array of advanced functions and user-friendly features in a camera body with remarkable form and function. The elimination of an optical viewfinder and quick-return mirror gave Marc Newson more freedom in designing the camera body.

The Pentax K-01 system camera showcases Newson originality in every detail. Available in black, white and Newson’s signature yellow colors, the Pentax K-01 features the designer’s autograph logo stamp on the bottom of each camera. Widely known for designing a wide range of objects from furniture and household products to bicycles, cars, aircraft and yachts, Marc Newson has had collected works displayed in The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City and many other major museums.
