Pentax K-r Interchangeable Lens Camera
A mid-range, lightweight, 12.4MP DSLR that also captures stunning 720p HD movies that you've been thinking about.
The K-r has several details going for it, also, such as a 3'"high resolution LCD screen featuring 930,000 dot resolution, as much as 6 fps shooting speed, precise 11-point autofocus, sensitivity as high as 25,600 ISO is why you'll never lose a shot because of poor light, as quick as 1/6000 second shutter speeds for freezing the action, plus a choice of power, choose Li-ion rechargeable or everywhere AA batteries.
Hold on! There's more: the K-r also features an efficient dust removing mechanism that shakes the dust from the CMOS image sensor automatically, a custom image mode for utilizing one of the nine creative functions (like Bleach Bypass, which is a dramatic look used in movie production) to any particular photo you want, digital filter mode with an 18 filters selection for processing images without need for a computer (includes Sketch, Starburst, Fisheye, High Contrast, Toy Camera, Retro,,
Pasteurization, etc.), an updated High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode for creating superb images in difficult lighting environments (combines 3 different exposures using the same scene) without needing a tripod, plus 3 unique cross processing selections for creating dramatically unique colors. It also features fast infrared data transfer, the first for a Pentax camera. The latest mid-level Pentax. Initially placed ahead of the K-x it provides more lanky, K-7 styling. What do you think now?
Video is not the really big deal. Record can only be around 20 minutes before the sensor gets hot, it's only 720p, 25 fps, no auto refocus, no control of the aperture subsequent to the image capture
beginning. So, don't get the k-r for its video feature, what amounts to just a basic camera feature and the sound is only mono. Live view is the Real Deal.
