Pentax K10D Digital SLR

 

Pentax's top digital SLR gets the TR treatment at last

Despite being over a year old, the Pentax K10D still compares well with other current mid-range enthusiast's DSLRs. It is one of the few digital SLRs on the market with a weatherproof body, and combines this with outstanding build quality and design,...

Pentax K10D review

 

Over the past few years Pentax has wheeled out a succession of largely identical 6MP SLRs which were neat but nothing special. Can the K10D break the mould?

Big, tough and supremely well-specced, but if you don’t know what you’re doing it’ll scare you stiff

Pentax K10D DSLR digital camera

 

The Pentax K10D is reassuringly robust as you heft it out of the box, it has a tough plastic body with a metal chassis. This robust body design provides a reassuring feel when handling the camera and when shooting, particularly if you're out and about...

Good image quality, plenty of detail, excellent range (and some unique to Pentax) of exposure controls, body integral Anti-Shake, anti-dust system, build and environment protection, RAW+JPEG mode, good value for money

Slightly soft JPEG images "out of the camera", slight loss of highlight detail

The Pentax K10D is the company’s new flagship and as such, it comes to the market replete with an excellent feature set at a great price.

Pentax K10D DSLR digital camera - FIRST LOOK

 

I was introduced to the new Pentax flagship DSLR at the massive photo trade show, Photokina that's held every 2 years in Cologne, Germany at the end of September.

Large screen on rear of camera, proprietary CCD-Shift anti shake mechanism, great new shooting modes

It's early days, but its looking like there won't be much wrong here

Pentax K10D review

 

Will it make a splash? It's going to take some convincing

Excellent image quality ; Good anti-shake ; Dual-RAW modes ; Useful features

Lenses can't match the camera's quality

The Pentax K10D is quite a surprise. Its performance matches anything its rivals can do

Pentax K10D + 18-55mm review

 

The bulky K10D has more in common with Nikon's D80 than the other sub-£500 digital SLRs.

Pentax K10D Review

 

It's fair to say that Pentax SLR fans haven't had much to shout about in the digital age. That's all changed with the introduction of the highly-specified K10D, which promises to take Pentax back into the enthusiast heartland. Daniel Lezano puts it to...

Overall, I am very impressed by the Pentax K10D. It represents a major step forward by Pentax and has what it takes to give its big-brand rivals a strong challenge. In terms of features, its ahead of the pack and in experienced hands is capable of...
