Pentax shows NERV, flashes Japan-only Evangelion-flavored Q10s

We've seen Neon Genesis Evangelion-branded devices for quite awhile now, and as a testament to the garish-hued series' longevity, Pentax has announced a special edition, show-themed Q10 series of its own. It'll release a mere 1,500 of the models in Evangelion heroine shades, starting with the Eva-01 model shown above at a price of 59,800 Yen ($660 or so). Besides showing your love for '90s anime, that sum will get you a 12.4-megapixel, mirrorless interchangeable shooter capable of Full HD video, while filling out the already-bounteous Q10 color choices from the hue-loving outfit. Stateside fans of the show will likely be disappointed though -- it'll only be sold in Japan, starting in April. Check the source to see the other colors.

PMA 2010 Starts Today

The PMA (Photo Marketing Association) show kicks off today and runs through to the 23rd February 2010. It takes place in the Anaheim Convention Center in California and plays host to a slew of announcements in the digital photography arena.

There have already been many pre-show announcements including Pentax with the X90. Add to this the Samsung HMX-U20, Kingston with their new class 10 16GB micro SDHC memory card and of course the Canon EOS 550D (shame Canon are not attending the PMA). This all adds up to some seriously exciting new goodies for photographers to drool over. Keep an eye on the Geekanoids website over the next few days for further PMA updates.
