My Pentax doesn't levitate like that. Is it a new firmware release?

Pentax often do things differently - that is the Drone Mode.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

It's not levitating, it's high speed photography. The seller repeatedly dropped the camera and tried to capture it photographically just before it hit the deck. He finally managed it but not before several failed attempts. Hence why it's now being sold as broken.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

How the heck did Pentax AF manage to get that image...

Nearly right - he threw it at the ground and photographed it as it bounced (with the result described above).

You're all close but not quite there. It's Flash, the only individual fast enough to not be caught on camera.

No idea why he's on eBay though.

59 quid for a broken K-r? If there's any magic involved in this listing it'll be that he manages to sell it for that.

So this is for collectors only, right?
