Hi, in case nobody heard about it, Pentax came out with lower end HDSR camera.

All I know at this point is that it is super cheap and has 100 or more color variations to choose from. It does 1280x720 24F. Looking at recording time chart, it seems highest bit rate is comparable to Canon?? It says 11min for 4GB flash card. Is it not?

OK, it seems the codec is Motion JPEG(AVI)24fps.

Is this a good thing?

It says it will have auto focus but the camera movement noise will be recorded.

The censor size is 23.615.8mm.

I don't see how audio is recorded. But it is cheap enough I am considering it.

Around 70000 yen (Apx, $700) including lens.

Okay, I just found there is already a thread about this machine in THE NEW GUY.

Could somebody move my comment there?

I appreciate it.
