Pentax Celebrates 60th Anniversary with Dunkable Gold SLR Throwback

Not that you'd want to drop this sucker in the water or anything, but Pentax calls its LX Gold camera the world's first waterproof and dust-resistant SLR. That's right, Gizmodians, this is not a digital camera, it's a nod toward those olden days when our forefathers used something that was known as "film." But Pentax did this relic up right, with shiny gold and alligator trim, celebrating the company's 60th anniversary.

Just to show that the company actually has its shit together, Pentax also trotted out its K10D, a 10.2-megapixel premium DSLR camera with a pretty cool "shake reduction system." Jump for pics of that and a few more beauty shots of this waterproof golden fossil of a camera.
