1.2million dot 3.5" LCD's will hopefully come to Pentax soon!

Yes oh yes!!! Getting the BIGGER SLRs to catch-up on its smaller fancier designs too. And it all started with a built-in flash on the SLR & now... flippable preview screen. Great Features !

I'd love to see such a big screen on our next camera, but don't think Samsung' compact DC has anything to do w/ Pentax though ...

I'm thinking "industry standard" - I can't see Samsung keeping this to only their cameras. Although I suppose that's a possibility.

Since Pentax is making dSLR for Samsung, why not ask them to make small DC (but put Pentax name and SMC lens on them) for us :cool: Nowadays all our DCs are outsourced anyway.

Aspect ratio is likely to be wrong though. 1152k dot means 384k pixels, translating nicely to a resolution of 800 x 480.

Yup!

I actually think that a screen on the front is a -great- idea for a compact, but samsung designs aren't all that pretty...

Sorry but I rarely sit up and take notice of Samsung cameras but...
I'm still hopeful Pentax will someday resurrect a digital version of the System 10 concept Pentax 110 DSLR.
If they can put a decent sized digital sensor with low noise and decent resolution, I would go out and buy one tomorrow.
If you ever get the chance to look into the viewfinder of a Pentax 110, you'll be surprised how clear and bright it is. :thumbsup:

Look how cute the Safari version of the 110 is...
