Pentax Taps YouTube to Display Films Shot Entirely with K-7 DSLR

Pentax K-7 DSLR Camera

Pentax has posted two short films shot exclusively with its video-capable flagship K-7 digital SLR camera. Pentax commissioned two Colorado production companies to create the entertaining short films to demonstrate the many possibilities of shooting HD video on a PENTAX K-7 digital SLR with a lens assortment that offers cinematographic perspective to anyone.

The films were produced by All Terrain Studios and Futuristic Films both of Denver, Colorado. The film features are viewable via YouTube.

One film shares a typical day in the life of a snow bum who lives for his daily terrain park fix. The film captures majestic vistas of the Rocky Mountain Continental Divide and offers an inside look into winter sport lifestyles.

The other one takes viewers on a nocturnal odyssey of a desperate fugitive. It is the sweet tale of an uncle comforting his beloved niece with a cellular bedtime story. A mad clown, a crazed woman, magic pills, gunshots and more add up for a fast-paced, riotous adventure. It was shot in downtown Denver entirely at night.
