Ricoh has put up a new teaser page for its upcoming full frame Pentax DSLR. Back in February 2015, Ricoh announced that the camera would arrive by the end of the year. It looks like that date got pushed back a bit, as the website now says the debut will happen in Spring of 2016.
The camera still looks like what Ricoh was showing off earlier this year. Here’s the product photo that was sent out to the press back in February:
And here’s a photo by Japanese site DC.Watch of a Pentax FF prototype camera at the CP+ trade show in Japan:
The Pentax full frame DSLR is also rumored to have a High Resolution shooting mode, which may capture multiple photos in quick succession and then combined into an ultra-high-definition image. This technique could allow the Pentax FF camera to produce photos well over 100 megapixels in resolution.
Aside from these (supposedly solid) rumors floating around, there’s not much else in the way of announced details, so we’ll have to wait until Spring 2016 for official word. Stay tuned!
