Ricoh Imaging is allegedly working on a new Pentax M-E mirrorless camera with APS-c size image sensor.
The information comes from a Japanese Magazine claiming that a potential Pentax M-E camera is on the horizon. This will not be Pentax’s first mirrorless camera. Ricoh announced the Q-Series mirror model back in 2011.
The Pentax Q was the world’s smallest mirrorless camera with a size of 1 / 2.3 “(6.17 x 4.55 mm). Ricoh’s Q camera followed the Q10, Q7 and Q-S1 models. More details after the break!
Pentax M-E Mirrorless Camera with APS-C Sensor Coming
The original M-E model from Pentax were a classic 35mm camera which was announced back in late 1970. Apparently, Ricoh will re-create this retrospective M-E film camera in the form of APS-sensor to a mirrorless camera.
Rumored Pentax M-E Specs
- 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
- Compact body with a retro design
- Shake reduction system for stabilization
- AA filter sümiulator
- Adapter to use K-mount lenses
- Tiltable rear LCD
The articles in Japanese magazines on upcoming cameras have not been very accurate in the past. We think that it would be a pretty good move for Pentax.
