New Pentax is to be an entry level digital SLR camera
Pentax has recently announced a new DSLR camera, the Pentax K2000 DSLR camera. This model is designed specifically for those consumers who are ready to make the transition from a point-and-shoot digital camera to high quality, top of the line digital SLR photography. The Pentax K2000 is will be an entry-level system camera consisting of the new Pentax K2000 body, the Pentax AF200FG Auto Flash, and the Pentax DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL lens.
Reviews show the Pentax comes with a 10.2-megapixel CCD, a compact design, and a 2.7-inch QVGA screen that facilitates one handed operation. The camera body also features the same Pentax developed Shake Reduction technology that is found on the more advanced K series digital SLRs.
In addition, reviews show that the Pentax K2000 offers a new Auto Picture Mode, which lets users select from Landscape, Portrait, Macro, Action and Night Portrait modes that will help tailor the Digital SLR camera settings for beginners. In addition, the camera also has a Dust Removal system, as well as a dedicated programmable help button that aims to explain the current camera settings that will help guide and teach the camera user about digital SLR photography.
The Pentax K2000 kit will ship in November for around $700.
