Pentax K7 SLR Review - One Heck Of A Digital Camera
Pentax K7 Digital SLR Camera (incl 18-55 mm Lens)
The new K7 is at the high end of the K range of Pentax DSLR cameras and has been designed for easy operation using the most up-to-date features.
The Pentax K7 Digital SLR Camera (incl 18-55 mm Lens) has a 14.6mp sensor, offering a four-channel read-out and revised auto-focus algorithms.
It also has an optical viewfinder that shows almost 100% of field vision thanks to the camera’s glass prism finder, built in face recognition and a high-speed continuous shooting feature. The 3" LCD monitor offers a great view of the pictures you shoot, while the Live View facility allows you to view the images you are taking on the monitor in real time.
The K7’s still imagery is very high quality - 1280x720 pixels - and the HD movie facility shoots at 30 frames per minute.
The shutter not only has an impressive shutter speed of 1/8000th, but it is also incredibly quiet, an excellent feature when taking photos during weddings or other formal occasions when interruptive sound is frowned upon.
In addition, a shake-reducing feature compensates for camera shake by bringing the shutter speed down four shutter stops. It is also compatible with all Pentax interchangeable lenses, which is great news for those who like to experiment with different lenses. If you already own a Pentax, the good news is that most of your old lenses will fit.
As always, Pentax has come up with a great camera in the K7 model. The many up-graded functions have been stylishly encased in a hardwearing, waterproof body, which has been designed to provide a durable item that is easy to carry and yet provides all the features that a keen, amateur photographer is looking for in a digital SLR.
With all these great features, Pentax has really come up with a winner in this camera, so do not waste anymore time looking - click to buy and you can be the proud owner of the Pentax K7 Digital SLR Camera.
