A new Pentax film camera
Many of us have been asking ourselves who will bring the next film camera to market. First Leica and now Pentax.

A new Pentax film camera?
Mr. Suzuki does then make a clear statement towards the end of the video that this is an exciting challenge and worth pursuing, but that we cannot expect a product in the near future. It may be that is influenced by the well-known Japanese culture of understatement and that one does not want to promise too much although one is already very confident. However, I would like to point out that Pentax as a brand is known not only for good quality products but also for its “Unbearable Slowness of Being,” as with its introduction of AF technology in the ‘80s, and with digital technology. Mr. Suzuki is also at pains to point out that they are in no way thinking of abandoning digital technology.
