It’s not often I get talk about both anime and photography, Pentax are releasing an Evangelion themed Q10 DSLR in April, sadly it’s Japan only and they are only making 1,500 of each model so the chances of getting your grubby mitts on one is fairly low. But you can dream.
It’s going to clock in at 59,800 Yen ($660 or a little over £400) for that that you get a 12.4 megapixel, mirrorless interchangable lens camera which can also shoot video in fill HD.
It’s apparently not just going to come in the above EVA-1 colour palette but will be available in the other EVA models as well.
Unfortunately I can’t find a link to just this fan created by designer/design firm Johnson Banks (I can’t even find an about page…) It’s still pretty cool and I like Pantone related things…
After an exhibition of our work was held in Tokyo in 2004, we received an annual request to take part in a product design/decoration project for the Creation Gallery in Ginza. Here we were given a blank ‘fan’ and asked to make it appeal to a younger audience, so our design takes all the ‘cool’ blues and greens out of the colour palette and shows them as swatches.
