The Pentax K-R 12.4 Megapixel Digital Camera – A Great Deal

The Pentax K-R 12.4 Megapixel Digital Camera is a well designed, precision-built and robustly constructed imaging tool. This camera is a compact, entry-level digital SLR that doesn’t skimp on features. Some of the highlights include a 12.4 Megapixel CMOS sensor, sensor-shift image stabilization, a 3-inch LCD with live view, 6 fps continuous shooting, plenty of manual controls, and 720p movie recording.

The Pentax K-R 12.4 polycarbonate body shell over stainless steel frame construction is tough enough to go just about anywhere. The Pentax K-R 12.4 also has an efficient dust removal mechanism that automatically shakes dust off the CMOS sensor, a custom image function for applying one of nine creative modes (such as Bleach Bypass, a dramatic effect used in movies) to any particular image you wish, a digital filter function with a choice of 18 filters to process images without a computer (including Starburst, Sketch, High Contrast, Fisheye, Toy Camera, Posterization, Retro, etc.), an upgraded HDR (High Dynamic Range) function to create a superb image in difficult lighting situations (by combining 3 different exposures of the same scene) even when not using a tripod, and 3 different cross processing options to create dramatically different colors. It even has a high-speed infrared data transmission system–the first in a Pentax camera.
