Prosumer vs. Consumer[edit]

I have removed these labels per WP:V. They are uncited and apparently not labels Pentax published. http://www.pentaximaging.com/products/cameras/digital/digital_slr/ Nothing is mentioned there or related pages I could find that indicate either type of label.

I haven't got the time at the moment. Just about every Pentax press release announcing the camera declares who the target market is, so if any other editor has the time they can add these references using the <ref>link here</ref>. If no one else gets around to it, I'll go ahead and do it myself in a few hours. Tejastheory (talk) 01:04, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

K-m/K2000D[edit]

This was recently announced at Photokina [1]. It's basically a smaller, lighter K200D (although it goes to ISO 3200, not 1600, hmmm). It still has the stabilization, but no sealing and no top LCD.

How the heck should this thing fit into the template? My proposal would be to change the K100D, K200D, etc. line to be called "Enthusiast", and put this in the "entry-level" category with the K110D. I know that's hopelessly imprecise but it seems like the easiest most intuitive solution. Any suggestions? :-P ǝɹʎℲxoɯ (contrib) 14:16, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

*istDS entry level while K100D enthusiast?[edit]

Is this because the DL hadn't appeared at this point on the timeline? So the DS had to be pentax's entry-level model at the time? The K100D sits, featurewise, somewhere between the DS and DL just with added shake reduction, i think it's fair to label any camera which uses a pentamirror as entrylevel, the 110D maybe needs its own super-entrylevel section. It's also worth comparing features between the *istD and DS, maybe the latter needs to be repositioned as enthusiast. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.24.241.9 (talk) 15:32, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Removal of MZ-D and 645D prototypes[edit]

I agree that the MZ-D and 645D prototypes shouldn't have been listed as they were previously, since these never went into production or on sale. However, they were also significant in the development of Pentax's camera lineup and should probably be acknowledged somehow in a timeline like that.

Can anyone think of a way to incorporate prototypes into a timeline like this? It would probably be helpful for the Canon/Nikon/K-M/Sony templates as well, since those also omit early prototype and hybrid DSLR models which were significant in the development of modern DSLRs.

How's this?

Richmeister, I like it. Moxfyre (ǝɹʎℲxoɯ | contrib) 05:18, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

645D now in mass production[edit]

As the medium-format digital 645D finaly went into production, it would make sense to update the template. What about:

Video[edit]

How about viewing the video capability, similar to Nikon, Canon tables? --79.198.31.54 (talk) 08:57, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Done. --Richmeistertalk 10:26, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Great! --79.198.31.54 (talk) 20:47, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
How is video supposed to be differentiated in this timeline? I don't see it marked in any distinctive way the current version. —Moxfyre (ǝɹʎℲxoɯ | contrib) 16:42, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Cameras with HD video are underlined. --Racklever (talk) 10:05, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Table corrected[edit]

As of April 2011 camera shops here in the UK have the K-r, K-x, K5 and K7 for sale. See [2] Racklever (talk) 06:52, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

"Ultrasonic vibration dust removal"[edit]

The template currently distinguishes Ultrasonic vibration dust removal as a distinct feature of the K-7, K-5, and K-5 II. But don't all the Pentax DSLRs with in-body stabilization have ultrasonic dust removal? Or is this truly a new feature? (I only
