Pentax seems to have decided that one of its niches in the digital camera market will be to allow consumers to customize the look of their hardware. Their NB1000 literally lets people reshape the camera through the use of Nanoblocks bricks, and their RS1500 lets users customize the look of it via skins.
So as part of a tie-in with the upcoming Warner Bros. Green Lantern blockbuster, Pentax will be releasing a special limited edition ‘DC Super Heroes’ version of the RS1500 that comes with seven different skins including the Green Lantern, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Superman, Catwoman and The Joker. They’re also throwing in a less-than-super 4GB SD card and a Green Lantern protective case. Specific pricing info for this collector’s pack is still TBA, but given its ‘limited edition’ status it will probably be a bit more than the camera’s $149.95 MSRP.
