Looks like the new KS-1 is going to be announced tomorrow. Photorumors site has some more info.

Looks quite nice spec including Flucard compatibility and one or two more features from K3. I wonder how they have priced it?

It has been announced already. Details here:-

Not on Ricoh's own site yet though!
Can't get that excited although I noticed DPR managed to immediately downgrade it from Pentax's "mid-class" to "entry level".
These definitions are pretty meaningless in reality these days as they are purely arbitary and one camera can always trump some features of another.

SD card slot on the bottom sharing the battery door. Why???

Plenty of colours to choose from.

At least the LED's, which have limited function, can be turned off.

Because the LEDs indicate how many faces are detected are
we going to get silly remarks from people in the photo
such as "My LEDs not LIT UP! "

Now that's a really useful feature if you are using it on self timer - I guess we should be calling them 'selfies' now to go with the new style of things

When Computer Fairs were popular a few years ago everyone
seemed interested in anything with BLUE LEDS ..........
Hardly any interest in GREEN ..... Have Ricoh chosen the
wrong colour for the yoof of today!

The Video is H.264 ....
So no more 30fps Motordive Just when I was
getting interested in it

EDIT: Blue still seems popular look around 10' 30""
in this video......

Body only.

The greedy buggers ! You can get a K-5ii body for 10 less, which you can then spend on a set of battery powered christmas lights ...
