Pentax K110D (with 18mm-55mm Lens Kit, Body Only)

 

In true contrarian style, the K100D is the more expensive of the two, thanks to Pentax's own sensor-shifting optical image stabilization. Aside from that, the two SLRs are identical. Both feature 2.5-inch LCD screens, 11-point autofocus, and...

In-camera optical image stabilization; relatively compact; great mix of auto and manual features.

Auto white balance is warm in tungsten light; no raw-plus-JPEG mode; only 6 megapixels.

With its built-in image stabilization and comfy mix of manual and automatic features, the Pentax K100D is one of the best dSLR bargains on the market.

Pentax K110D

 

This is still my most favorite camera body, bought it in January 2007 - I have shot numerous quality photos with this one. Feature-cost analysis wise this is pretty much the best offer you can get.

The rubber grip has become a bit faded white-ish that kinda looks bad

"great camera"

 

I bought this for the price,I paid $288 w/lens and the camera is great. when you use the old lenses you set the f stop and it will set the proper sutter speed. I had no problems with it. I like the mirror lockup function w/the optional remote control.

I have no problem givin'it all the 5's!!! It's my first dslr and i'm not mucha than a newbie in photograph. What I can say is that the pic's are great, and to prevent that lack of "shake reduction" I tend to snap more than one pic, maybe 3 our 4.... ...

the only problem is the absolute lack of experience... of my part

Owners Opinion: Pentax K110D (Pattisboy, 6 Dec 07)

 

The K110D is my first DSLR and I have five other point 'n' shoots and almost six years experience of digital camera shooting. I used a Pentax SpotmaticII for over thirty years and various rangefinder types (and box cameras) since I started photography...

Product Specifications

Who says a starter digital SLR has to be stripped? Not Pentax. The vast array of features packed into the affordable Pentax K110D is impressive. This including a fast, high-precision 11-point auto focus (9 cross-type sensors) with SAFOX VIII and superimposed AF-point display. Add to this a 6.1 megapixel APS-C size CCD, sensitivity equivalent to ISO 200 to 3200, 2.8 frames per second capture rate for action photography, and a bright, high-precision Penta mirror viewfinder with 0.85X magnification. The sleek, compact body design with a high-rigidity stainless-steel chassis offers convenient SD media Card storage and High Speed USB 2.0 data transfer and operates on AA batteries, 2CR-V3 lithium batteries, or optional AC adapter. This camera comes with PENTAX smc P-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 The PENTAX smc P-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 is recommended for use with digital cameras. Ideal for beginners, it provides a focal length covering a wide to moderate wide-angle range. Like all PENTAX lenses, the smc P-DA 18-35mm F4-5.6 zoom lens is treated with PENTAX's acclaimed smc coating for maximum light transmission, sharp definition, and high contrast while minimizing flare and ghost imaging.
