I can't say as I like the colors, but I like the camera. I will agree with the FAIL rating because you have designed a camera for an advanced amateur and then didn't release a viewfinder.

I like the yellow one.
Close to the "Hello Kitty" version.

DP Review writes, "Pentax Ricoh discontinues K-01 K-mount mirrorless camera"

DP Review wrote:
Pentax Ricoh has moved its K-01 K-mount mirrorless camera to the 'discontinued' section of its website after just 12 months on the market, following steep discounts to its price in recent weeks. The unconventional-looking K-01 used a full-depth Pentax K lens mount but relied on contrast-detection AF, rather than the phase-detection systems for which all autofocus K-mount lenses have been primarily designed.

Designed by Marc Newson, the K-01 was one of the most unusual-looking cameras we've ever used, and the full-depth K-mount made it one of the largest mirrorless camera's we've ever reviewed, too.

At this year's Consumer Electronics show, we asked a Pentax representative whether there would be a K-02, but received a determined 'no comment' in response. It is possible that the K-01's role could be taken by a long-rumored K-mount module for Ricoh's GXR system.
