Pentax K-7

With increasing interest of the masses into the technicolour-ed world of photography, the market for the semi-professional Prosumer cameras has become extremely competitive and tough. Every new entry into this category is carefully scrutinized by the clickers and the critics alike. The Pentax K-7 promises to make its presence felt in this highly competitive sphere of the camera market. This 14.6 mp camera that comes with a lens with a range of 18mm to 55mm has all the necessary features of a Prosumer camera in a smaller package.

Design and Functioning

Superior quality Magnesium alloy makes this Prosumer camera tough and ideal for travel photography. The ISO range that it responds to is 100 to 3200, which can be extended to 6400. Its viewfinder gives less magnification and 100% coverage. With a shutter lag of less than 0.1 second and shot-to-shot time of 0.24 second, this camera is a serious enthusiastís delight. Taking a quantum leap from the Pentax K20D, its predecessor, the Pentax K-7 comes with a dedicated button for controlling the ISO settings. It also comes with an Auto Focus illumination lamp for taking pictures in the dark. Its shutter speed extends from a minimum of 30 seconds to a maximum of 1/8000th of a second. It is compatible with SD and SDHC cards for storage.
