Do you still remember the Pentax Special Robot Edition K-r DSLR that we posted back in December 2010? This limited edition DSLR camera comes in a bright, multi-colored body and a robotic head that fits into the flash hotshoe. Pentax USA and Walmart will launch the new Pentax K-r in limited edition colors such as pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, navy, metallic brown, gold and silver. My favorite is the silver model.
Each new color kit will be launched with an 18-55mm lens and several advanced features. Too bad, there is no info on pricing or availability so far. More pictures after the jump. Read more…
