It's always nice to see a company like Pentax doing well (I've got a soft spot for them as my first camera was a Pentax). So the announcement from Hoya (they own Pentax) about healthy profits of over 1,300 million Yen is very good news. There are rumours of a mirrorless Pentax camera on the horizon as well.
But... what is the fascination with colouring in their cameras. The K-x is a great little camera but the new "Rainbow" colour scheme is awful... or is it just me?
Er, yes that's over the top by miles - but the Japanese love colourful little gadgets. The K-x has a whole range of colours and, while I initially turned my nose up at them, I'm starting to come around to them - there's a selection of their colours here.
How about the Olive Green (or Brown) for the Army, Navy Blue for the sailors and a nice pink one for the RAF? ;-)
