Pentax K200D review

 

It's a plain Jane, but the K200D promises decent performance and sturdy build at a reasonable price

Not so much sexy as sturdy, this is a workhorse rather than a camera you’ll ever fall in love with

Pentax K200 D DSLR camera

 

The K200D follows the footsteps of its forbear, the K100D, offering a budget price camera but with a mid-to-high-end specification. Make no mistake, the K200D is a compact and simple to use DSLR that makes the art of snapping a cinch, (barring some...

Build, image quality, ease of use, price

Pentamirror viewfinder’s gloomy, some key controls buried only in menus, minor handling issue

And so, when all is said and done, the K200D straddles a gap between those on a budget and those wanting a feature rich, rugged DSLR and it does it rather well. It is not without flaws and some handling foibles that take getting used to.

Pentax K200D review

 

The K20D proved to be a great camera, but will the K200D meet the same standard?

Extensive feature set ; Good pictures ; Robust build

Uses AA batteries ; Dodgy Kit lens

The K200D is very good. The interface might look basic, but the features aren't. The Kit lens is the draw back though. It's OK for the undemanding but you may want to consider a more expensive alternative like the 16-45mm, say, which will push the...

Pentax K200D + 18-55mm lens review

 

Pentax's K200D is relatively bulky and heavy for an entry-level DSLR, but the dust- and splash-proof body is surprisingly robust.

Pentax K200d

 

Cameras like the Pentax K200D are designed to attract non digital SLR users to the mirrorcam fold, although you don't have to be a newbie to appreciate this model's affable feature set. There may be smaller and lighter compact DSLRs in the market, but...

Pentax K200D & Sony Alpha 200 Test

 

The latest generation of budget DSLRs has arrived offering more for your money than ever before. How does ten million pixels for £400 sound? Not bad, eh! Step forward Pentax's K200D and the Alpha 200 from Sony. Both are aimed to appeal to beginners...

Pentax's K100D won many plaudits for its excellent handling and so it's little surprise that this update hasn't seen many changes. At 630g, the K200D isn't heavy, but it has a very reassuring feel, thanks to the large, rubberised handgrip and the...

Pentax K200D

 

When we reviewed the Pentax K100D Super we were impressed with the built-in anti-shake and anti-dust features, not to mention the unbelievably low price. However, not upping the pixel count meant plumping for the bigger, pricier K10D if you wanted more...

With fewer thrills than most of its rivals, there are no Live View options for example, the K200D may not have the same kind of appeal as some, but it should be a compelling choice for existing Pentax users and will appeal to semi-pros on a budget
