Pentax K-r DSLR Line Comes in Different Colors; To Ship in October for $800

September 9, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Pentax’s DSLR line has got an update with the unveiling of successor to the K-x. Christened K-r, the digicam range comes with new color accents, which in fact offers you the option of picking the piece of your favorite choice. Pentax has said that its new range of colorful cameras offers advanced yet simple to use features at an attractive price.

With the new K-r line  update, Pentax has brought to its DSLR fold improvements  such as an upgraded ISO range of up to 25600, a better burst rate  of 6FPS, and a much-improved LCD  measuring 3 inches at 921000 dots of resolution. The earlier features, such as 12 megapixels and the 720p video (limited to 25 FPS), are still there.

Extreme user-friendliness is what we like about the Pentax K-r DSLR. It comes about as a lightweight model and offers options such as Auto Picture, Scene, and Custom Image Processing. With these you can be assured of snapping up superior quality images while still offering a high degree of manual and priority control.

Besides, aspects such as fast frame rate, high ISO sensitivity, responsive autofocus, improved 12.4 megapixel low-noise sensor and widescreen HD video capture make the Pentax K-r something you can rely on while on a photography jaunt.

While shopping for the Pentax K-r DSLR, we suggest you should look for the options in colors the company offers.  You can pick from among the  traditional black, the new classic white, and PENTAX red hues.

Also, look for some improved in-camera HDR image capture including a Night Scene HDR mode and a smart dual-power-source design that offers the choice of either a rechargeable lithium-ion battery or four AA-size battery power.

Pentax has also thrown in the aspect of infrared data transfer compatibility with the IrSimple high-speed infrared data transmission system for wireless data transfer to the web or other IrSimple-compatible devices.

The camera will start shipping this October. The camera will be accompanied by a selection of top of the line lenses, including a new 35mm F/2.4 lens for $220. When it hits retail the body-only kit will cost $800. The addition of an 18-55mm lens kit will make it $850.
