Ricoh K-S2 online survey - weird ending?

Having received the email to participate earlier to day, I have just tried to complete the survey and I think I answered all the questions - but after the last question page the browser opened this page, which was COMPLETELY blank and so I don't know if my contribution (such as it was - not really interested in a K-S2) was actually fully received!

Anyone else run into the same issue?
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

I thought the same at first. It wasn't blank just a page placement error corrected by scrolling back to the top. This on Firefox on my 24 inch screen though.

By the way if these folk are asking questions does that mean we have found someone who can reply to our long running Q & A requests????

OK Here...... Have you got Eval&Go blocked in your browser?

You could always make your OWN Questionnaire

Interesting - but, as I'm not interested in the K-S2, I have better things to do at the moment!

I thought the survey was pretty interesting. Towards the end it moved away from K-S2 and onto more general APS-C and even FF opinions / questions. Spent a good half an hour typing up a few ideas, opinions.

I liked the question about a possible "35mm full flame" model - certainly a hot topic for discussion!

This is what I got at the end of the survey when using Google chrome.

I think Bill's post explains what I probably should have done to see the final message.

He used Firefox, I don't know what you were using. I used Chrome as a comparison and out of curiosity..

Hi all,

My view of Ricoh running Pentax is they have very little clue how to please a largely enthusiast audience regarding their products. I doubt they even have many on their local team that are even keen photographers. They are clearly based for marketing in France now for Europe with presumably just a modest sales desk in their UK registered office.

My view of the web in general is it's a pleasant experience on my 24 inch 1920 x 1200 deep Dell monitor screen, diminished but usable on my 7 inch android tablet and must be horrible on phones but most of the population use them for this and photography it seems. My wife has one and I avoid them. As I said on another thread I've done a small amount of web design and making stuff that is fine on Windows/Android work the same in Safari on Apple devices is challenging. Page positioning is particularly irksome so not surprised at this. It could all have been done on one page of course.

I do feel Pentax needs to be more engaging / present with their customer base.

As mentioned elsewhere, the likes of Canon have a big presence in social media and run large competitions where they send you props in a box for the various events. There are lots of training options also, such as individual video episodes to explain how to take photos in certain circumstances with their equipment.

This has come up previously with the quality of the Pentax manuals, and the general lack of a user guide as to how to group all the options together for different shooting situations. Other companies are doing that sort of thing quite well themselves, without the user needed to acquire a 3rd party book/guide to explain how best to use their new purchase.

Not saying there's not a need or a place for 3rd party sources of info, just it would be nice to have more of that from the manufacturing company themselves.
