Seems like Emjay is splashing out on advertising the Pentax Q.

Saw the bus ad, on sides and back, just now during lunch. Too bad I couldn't get a shot of it before it left the bus stop.

It shows a white Q, big words "Pentax Q", and the tagline "Smallest digital..." forgot the rest. :p

Anyone glimpse it too?

This is news indeed.
Never seen any Pentax Ad since the ones on the taxis.

There is a Pentax Q ad outside the main entrance on the Challenger at Funan.. You can see it while riding the escalator up. It's quite a huge banner actually!

Something about nano? And there was an Emjay logo and company name at the bottom. The camera was next to a playing card to show how small it was... Could it be the one that le petit prince saw?

I can't remember if the bus ad includes a playing card. I hope it does, cos the picture of the Q on that ad looks massive! No sense of scale otherwise.

That sure looks big! Though I don't think the Q is considered a DSLR? Haha!

Anyway, since that first sighting, I haven't seen the bus ad again.

Off-topic: Was keen on the Q as my carry-everywhere compact, but given up waiting for Q prices to drift downwards; just got a 2nd-hand Ricoh GRD 3 instead. Loving it so far!

Is the bus ad the same as the one I posted? I don't really like the ad though, I must say.
Same here.
Looks quite 'cheapo' imho.
"Brought to you by one of the oldest camera makers since 1952"
sounds so constrained and lacks punch.


I would have gone all out with

"From the maker of the first Japanese SLR"



Hold a Pentax. Use a Legend
