Ricoh Announcing Cost Cuts in Face of Crisis

https://www.dpreview.com/news/3586946955/ricoh-announced-cost-cuts-in-order-to-survive

"At this point it is not clear if and how Ricoh's imaging brands, such as Pentax, the Theta 360 degree cameras or the R Development
kit live-streaming VR camera will be impacted by the cost reductions."

PC Remote Control Software for Pentax DSLRs (via Wi-Fi)

https://sourceforge.net/projects/pentaxks2wifiremote/

Despite that the software was designed for the K-s2, a Pentax user reported that it worked for his K-1. So, it you try other Pentax models, please report your finding here! :-)

[Fanboyism] Pentax History and Cameras 1952-2017 (Official)

http://www.pentax.com/en/pentaxhistory/archives/

http://s1.media.ricoh-imaging.de/media/7542ab0e4610697f54bd87b2ce2c343e/poster_A1_slr_cameras1952_2017.pdf

Amongst the above, I bought 15 models over years.

So, for my 15 Pentax interchangeable-lens bodies, they can be further categorised as follows:

- 4 Film and 11 Digital
- 2 Medium Format, 4 135 Full Frame, 8 APS-C, 1 Tiny Sensor Format
- 14 Reflex and 1 Mirrorless
- 1 Silver, 1 Oliver, 1 Blue, 1 Gold and 1 White, all Others are Black in Colour
- 10 models can take AA batteries, 4 with adaptors or with grips (which were bought separately at high prices)
- Total cost of these cameras when bought new was huge, present value is minimal! :-(

After all, I must admit that I am a true Pentax fanboy, who bought and supported the brand blindly, over decades! :-((
