Three New Delicious Color Options & $100 Price Cut For K-S1 | Pentax Release

By Anthony Thurston on October 23rd 2014

Pentax, and their parent company Ricoh, are not ones to shy away from offering you every color option you could ever imagine on their cameras. Today, they bolstered that reputation with the announcement of three new ‘Delicious’ color options for their K-S1 model.

New Pentax K-S1 Color Options and Price Update

Now, as far as we can tell, these new K-S1 models are just new color schemes. Meaning that they will feature the same 20MP sensor, 5.4fps burst, 51,200 Max ISO, 1/6000th shutter speed, and 3″ display as the original K-S1. So don’t run out and get one of these if you are hoping for new features. The only new features here are the deliciously flavorful color options: Blue Cream Soda, Strawberry Cake, and Lime Pie.

Pentax/Ricoh is hoping that these delectable new color options (which they are calling the “Sweets Collection”), and the accompanying mouth watering product photography, along with a nice $100 price drop may pique your interest in this new K-S1.

These new color options for the K-S1 will go on sale in mid-November, and including the $100 price drop, they will be available for $650/Body or $700 in the kit.

    Gifting someone would be a nice option

    Photogs such as this guy would do well having such fanciful cameras

    All I need now, are to find a pair of shoes to match. Then I’ll be straight.

    I can see these as a great camera for the stay-at-home mothers that enjoy taking photos of their children for fun. The white and blue one is my favorite of the three color combinations.

    With the places I take my (basic black) Canon any of these offerings would end up dirty/dingy white and blue or red or green. I try to keep my equipment clean, however, I don’t try to make a fashion statement with it.

    I still can’t figure out what market Pentax (Ricoh) is trying to hit. I was a long time Pentaxian, going back into the film days all the way to the K-5, and I ended up leaving them because it they didn’t seem to really have a plan. They make great cameras, I love the ergonomics and thought put into them, but they just seem a bit aimless as a business.

    Very good news with the price drop rated as excellent. Even I am an Olympus, Panasonic user, I hope that also Pentax will find a niche in the photo market and prices will remain or become more affordable for the photographers.
