  2. Yes. But I believe that Pentax has made most of it and Samsung is buying
    technology from Pentax.

    Burst rate only 3 shots in 15 seconds...
    Even so the "shoot and scoot" mode would interest paparazzi.

    What is next is a Samsung sensor.

    When Samsung and Pentax signed their long term co-operation agreement,
    Pentax has already signed up for the Sony sensors. You can be sure
    that Samsung are developing the next generation of sensor for Pentax
    (and Samsung) DSLRs.

    For their 12MP "Pro" camera?

  10. I thought Sony and Samsung had a clear agreement - Sony gets to share
    Samsung large LCD screen tech and manufacturing (Samsung is now making
    screens for Sony), Samsung get to use Sony large scale CCD sensors.

    The Sony/Samsung agreement is quite separate to that between Samsung
    and Pentax.

    The publicity attached to the Samsung/Pentax agreement made an
    explicit statement that Samsung would be contributing future sensors
    and electronics while Pentax would contribute optics and "SLR
    technology".

    The testing I saw did 71 frames in 30 seconds compared to the D80 that did
    90 in 30 seconds. only about 2.2 fps..
