Pentax K Teaser in US

Pentax today supported rumors by posting a teaser on its home page for a new digital SLR. Calling it only "the new K," the company shows a top portion of the camera and is running a countdown that ends on May 20th, when the announcement takes place. No clues are given as to what features the camera would have other than familiar DSLR features like a flash hot shoe.

The news follows weeks after a similar effort in Japan and supports rumors that the new camera is the K7D, the company's first true high-end DSLR rather than a simple replacement for the K20D. These claims have maintained that the K7D would have a new autofocusing system, burst shooting up to 5 frames per second, a viewfinder with 100 percent coverage and a fast 1/8000 shutter speed. Some have also suggested it may be the first Pentax pro camera to offer video shooting, at 720p.
