Pentax K-r 12.4 MP Digital Camera

on 4/5/2012

This is my 5th Pentax Digital Camera. I currently own and use the Pentax K-r, K-x and K200. They are all exceptional cameras that produce stunning results with nominal effort. By far, the K-r has shown it superiority in rapid focus in low light conditions. The cameras are small, sturdy and perform as expected. The price for these entry level and serious amateur cameras is a bargain considering the superior results. Add a quality 2.8 prime lens and turn out photos to rival Cannon and Nikon at one-third the price.

Product Overview

Brains, meet beauty. The Pentax K-r has it all. It's a powerful DSLR with advanced features like 12.4 Megapixels, HD video and a 3 inch LCD display. On the beauty side, taking photos has never looked this good. Plus, the K-r comes in basic black, classy white and PENTAX red. The PENTAX K-r competes with higher-end DSLRs and looks great doing it. That’s brilliantly colorful.
