Pentax K100D Super SLR

 

The Pentax-developed Shake Reduction (SR) system in the K100D Super effectively offers a two- to three-stop advantage for sharp, blur-free images even under difficult shooting conditions. The SR mechanism is designed to minimize camera shake by...

The K100D Super's user-friendly features include a comfortable eyelevel viewfinder, a 2.5 inch color LCD monitor, a generous LCD data panel, and an innovative Auto Picture mode for automatic selection of the proper exposure program. Offering quick,...

Pentax K100D Super

 

If you're looking for a well-made, versatile entry-level DSLR, give the Pentax K100D Super a test drive. One advantage that it has is lens compatibility - it's compatible with virtually every Pentax lens ever made, which means that you can get some...

Pentax K100D Super Review

 

Although there may be nothing particularly revolutionary about it, the new dust removal system works in three stages: first, an anti static coating on the CCD helps repel dust and other nasties, while ...

Having the arrogance to call your camera 'Super' places it justifiably in the firing line for a critical kicking. But having used the camera for more than six weeks, that thought has never entered my ...

Pentax K100D Super Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Pentax isn't actually shipping any SDM lenses yet, but the first such models are fast approaching. The Pentax smc DA * 50-135mm F2.8 ED (IF) SDM and smc DA * 16-50mm F2.8 ED/AL (IF) SDM are both expected to ship later next month, with the smc DA *...

The other main change in the Pentax K100D Super is the addition of a dust removal function as seen in the Pentax K10D. As with that camera, the K100D Super uses its Shake Reduction mechanism as part of a two-pronged approach to fighting dust on the...

Pentax's K100D Super; The Digital K-Mount Revolution Continues

 

In 1979 Pentax launched the ME Super as a manual focus, aperture-priority automatic SLR with an electronic focal plane shutter. It was small, light, and by all reports had excellent ergonomics. It used the by-then ubiquitous K-mount lens system and was...

The camera has a 6.1-megapixel APS-C-sized CCD and when combined with an 11-point autofocus mechanism and 16-segment multi-pattern metering delivers excellent image reproduction. The bright penta-mirror viewfinder features a 96 percent field of view...

Pentax K100D Super Review

 

Last year when Pentax introduced the K100D, they advertised it as "an affordable, full featured, user friendly digital SLR." This year when the Pentax K100D Super was announced, they advertised it as "an affordable, full featured, user friendly digital...

Compatible with EVERY Pentax lens ; Excellent image quality ; Compact, light body with great ergonomics ; Built-in shake reduction ; Built-in dust removal ; Good in-camera JPEGs and RAW format is available

Image buffer is too small … only 5 JPEG or 3 RAW images ; Top flash sync shutter speed of 1/180th is too slow for fill flash in bright daylight

use a 6 megapixel image sensor compared to other DSLRs using 10 megapixel sensors, the low price of $519 and impressive feature set make it an amazing value. Let's see what Pentax's newest entry level DSLR brings to the photographer's tool kit

Pentax K100D Super review

 

Pentax's entry-level SLR gets a revamp and a price drop

Well specified for an entry-level SLR ; Sturdily built yet portable ; The price certainly is 'Super'

Resolution not as high as its rivals

The K100D Super is all about price, price, price, and one enticing enough to overlook the modest headline resolution. That said, it packs in all the essentials and delivers crisp, colourful images out of the box. Plus you get a lens, making it a...

Pentax K100D Super 6Mp DSLR camera

 

The simple to use Pentax K100D Super looks every inch the real deal. It is a great choice if you want to make your first foray into digital SLR photography.

To sum up, the Pentax K100D Super is an unfussy, uncluttered user-friendly camera that is still packed with enough features for most amateur DSLR users. On our test shots, the Pentax delivered warm colours with just the right degree of softness for our...

Pentax K100D Super

 

Pentax upgrades the venerable K100D with a superhero alter ego. Here's what we think about it.

All of this makes out-of-the-box point-and-shoot snapping easy for those wishing to get to grips with their first SLR system. To really hammer the point home, the mode dial is described in the publicity as "friendly" -- which is nice.
