You missed it! But Today's Woot is waiting!

Persistence of memory [when memory fails].

For all the moments you want to capture. And every single one you'd rather forget, too.

"Ugh, Marthew, I feel terrible."

"Me, too, Streeven. Last night was pretty crazy, even for New Year's Eve."

"Morning, guys! How are you two feeling today?"

"Terrible. I don't even remember what happened last night."

"Well, you're in luck! I had my Pentax camera with me to capture all the action."

"Oh … oh, no. No."


"Jaremy, please don't make me look at - "

"Here you are at the playground before they kicked us out."


"And Marthew, here's a great shot of you at your ex-girlfriend's doorstep. Do you remember when we decided to crash her NYE party? She was pretty upset that you were only wearing a paper plate. Oh, here's a pic of that."

"This is a nightmare."

"Let us not forget our visit to the truck stop! Look!"

"I'm going back to bed."

12.4MP Backlit 1/2.3" CMOS Sensor

Bundled normal-range zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27.5-83mm, making it suitable for capturing wide-angle shots, portraits, and everything in between. Four extra-low dispersion (ED) aspherical lens elements minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. The lens has 5 aperture blades and syncs with the camera's built-in flash at shutter speeds up to 1/2000 sec. The maximum aperture ranges from a fast f/2.8 for low-light shots to f/4.5. Pentax's lens coating produces well-defined, high contrast images with minimal flare. The Neutral Density (ND) filter lets you use a wide aperture in bright environments where a narrow aperture would normally be required
