(ENDED) Pentax K-S1 with 18-55 for $265 (three colors)

This daily deal expired…

Have you ever wished you had a camera inspired by frozen yogurt color schemes? Your time has come! The new condition Pentax K-S1 with the 18-55mm lens and a 16GB FLU (wireless; it’s not sick) memory card goes for $260 at Woot Sellout, good until 1am ET on Tuesday or earlier if sold out. Limit up to three per color per customer. Shipping is $5 flat regardless of how many you buy.

The three available colors are “Lime Pie” and “Blue Cream Soda” and “Strawberry Cake”.

PS: a hidden benefit of these cameras is that you may be able to get them in places where professional-looking DSLRs are not be allowed. The bouncers/security-guys may look at these and think it’s a kids toy 🙂

    Ah, but you failed to mention those all-important LED lights along the hand grip! What’s a fashion statement these days without LED lights? I wouldn’t be surprised to see caskets festooned with them anytime now.

    Maybe the Japanese are going through a phase something like that in the U.S. of the 1950’s. That was a time when the cool cars had tail fins, lots of heavy chrome, three-color paint schemes (pink, gray and cream, for instance) and two-feet-plus front, and three-feet of rear, overhang. It was also a time when many a front yard sported a few plastic flamingoes. Now, the Japanese seem to be doing that kind of thing with electronics, including cameras. Ricoh/Pentax is clearly hoping to attract young people to venture past their smartphones to a dedicated camera by offering some colorful and kitschy product differentiation. Quite a departure for a division of a company that gave the world one of the better, yet most forgettable looking, “serious” cameras available: the GR I/II.

    • the blinking lights would definitely make them look like a toy, so they could fly under the “No DSLRs allowed” sign. Especially if you hand them off to a kid 🙂

      They can also be home or office decoration, a wall with the complete collection of the limited edition Pentax K color options! Or maybe the yogurt shops can use them for people to take “yogurt selfies” 🙂

    Yogurt selfies, LOL. Yoplait, Dannon, are you listening? 🙂
