New Cameras Unveiled
The budget-conscious K200D features a 10.2 MP CCD along with a 2.7-inch wide view LCD, a weather and dust-resistant body that allows for some flexibility in harsher conditions - a feature that should be most appealing to the intended audience. Add an advanced 16-segment meter and 11-point AF, with 9 cross sensors, along with Auto picture and Scene modes that provide ease operation for the novice with several more advanced modes so shooters can grow with this camera - and important part of the mix with the budget DSLR crowd.
On the higher end comes the K20D that features a 14.6 MP CMOS sensor along with Shake Reduction, enhanced Dynamic Range and what Pentax refers to as PRIME image processing engine that, they tell us, “maximizes image properties and allows custom adjustment of image parameters.”
That is but a peek at what should be an interesting PMA…Super Bowl and all. Look for more on PMA 2008 in the next several editions of Clique as well as a full show recap (CES too) in the March issue of Picture Business.
