Coming from Pentax the K10D digital SLR is the very first serious attempt at capturing part of the professional SLR market. However, this is only a first attempt and is not from one of the major companies yet at the same time this is packing some of the features that makes it highly desirable for those who are looking for a great camera that is highly effective and still at an affordable price.
Some of the best features include the crisp 10MP size, as well as the total of 11-point settings for auto focus. There are also a whopping 72 seals on the camera that helps prevent any moisture as well as dust from penetrating the inside of the camera which works very hard to ensure that your camera is never damaged over debris. Of course true to SLR fashion, you have the ability to capture images in RAW format, which will allow you additional options for modifying the images.
One of the best features that has been added is the supersonic motors that are used in conjunction with the lenses. While most Canon and even Nikon cameras have used this technology for a while now, this is the first attempt that Pentax has made and is certain to put them onto a level playing field with the major camera companies. Some of the other great features include the nice image processor that is included. Pentax has code named this Prime and has kept much of the specifics about the chip itself under wraps. What they have been kind enough to reveal is that the chip utilizes DDR2 RAM, in addition according to Pentax they are the only SLR camera to offer DDR2 technology.
With shake reduction added in as well; this is certainly shaping up to be a very good camera to look at for a basic starting SLR camera. While of course companies such as Nikon and Canon have a lot more experience going for them, this will make a great option to look at and is a reasonable camera to get started with.
