Just when we thought the Pentax K-S1 could not get any flashier, Ricoh has just released its LED lit DSLR in three new dessert inspired colors named Strawberry Cake, Blue Cream Soda and Lime Pie. In case you forgot the Pentax K-S1 strutted its way onto the camera scene with 12 different colors and a strip of LEDs.

Other than the new trio of “Sweets Collection” colors, this is still the same K-S1 underneath featuring a 20.12MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor. Despite the camera’s attention calling design, the K-S1 is still a serious Pentax shooter with a 1/6000th second maximum shutter speed, 5.4fps continuous shooting, and a maximum ISO of 51200.

On top of the lights along the front grip and surrounding the shutter button the camera has a bright 3-inch, 921,000-dot LCD on the back of the camera. The camera also come with a Flu Card, which is similar to an Eye-Fi Mobi card in that it creates a wireless LAN network to connect with smartphones and tablets.

These sweet inspired PENTAX K-S1 will be available this November in a kit with the SMC DA L 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens plus an included Flu Card for $699.
