Here’s the latest innovation from Pentax: a puppet body for your lens cap! The “Cameraman” is a handmade puppet body that comes with a 52mm lens cap showing a smiley face. It costs ¥2,914, or about $32, and is only available for a limited amount of time.
There’s also about 100 different designs you can choose from, though we think it’d be cool if they offered a blank doll for you to draw your own design. It’d be like the Munny for cameras.
This is the same company that allows you to customize the colors of its entry level DSLR, the K-x.
Looks like Pentax is trying to differentiate itself from the competition with creativity and adding a “fun factor” to entry level photography.
