We've finally made it to one of the first steps in the Pentax/Samsung partnership. As expected, the first model out has the Samsung name on an existing Pentax camera. A jointly developed camera will come later. For now, the Samsung GX-1S digital SLR has been announced.
Bascially, a rebadged Pentax *ist DS, the camera shoots 6 megapixels, features a Pentax lens mount and a 2.5 inch LCD. The camera can shoot 2.8 frames per second up to 8 images and has an ISO range of 200-3200. The camera is powered by 4 AA-sized batteries. For storage, the camera accepts SD memory media.
The Samsung GX-1S will be available starting in February
