Pocket- Lint: Pentax has announced the newest addition to its DSLR lineup - the lightweight and compact Pentax K-r.
Despite having a biggish 23.6 x 15.8mm image sensor the K-r keeps its slim figure due to a stainless steel chassis that has been "downsized in-body shake reduction mechanism, and state-of-the-art, high-density packaging technologies that ensure space-efficient positioning and layout of the camera components".
The Pentax’s full-frame dSLR debut, the K-1, hits at an opportune time. Canon for couple of years now, hasn’t updated its 6D or 5D Mark III , nor has Nikon done so with its D750 or D610 . Which makes a new model at an aggressive price a welcome development .
Engadget: Pentax's K-5 DSLR has been around for a little while now, but it's only just recently received enough reviews to establish something of a critical consensus.
Photography Blog - The Pentax Optio RS1000 is a well-specified entry-level compact camera with a clever twist - its front panel can be personalised with your own photographs or illustrations, potentially making every RS1000 unique.
