Good The value-for-money of this camera makes the competition look either greedy or inefficient. There is nothing cut-down or under-done about the Pentax.

The K100D and K110D digital SLRs were announced in May 2006, aimed as a straight replacement for the *ist DS series (actually the DS2) these two SLRs are designed to appeal to the affordable end of the digital SLR market but dont compromise on feat...
Good About as good as six megapixel resolution gets, crisp and detailed, a big improvement, Excellent detail even at higher ISOs, overall noise levels on par with competition, Effective long exposure noise reduction (necessary too), Accurate and fast auto-focu...
Bad Limited continuous shooting capability, buffer only large enough for four JPEG frames, Over-saturated default image tone (Bright), can lead to channel clipping, Relatively loud shutter release, Slightly humorous user interface compromise (Cntnuos expsr)...
Bottom line When we reviewed the *ist DS it was a camera which equally surprised and disappointed; on one hand it was one of those cameras which functioned beyond its expectation or billing, and on the other it disappointed with its relatively poor in-camera imag...

On the outside, the new Pentax K100D ($599 body only, $699 with lens) looks a lot like its predecessor, the *ist DS2. Pentax didnt just change the name, though (but Im glad they did) -- inside the K100D is a CCD-shift image stabilization system. T...

Pentax K100D Overview The Pentax K100D, along with its sibling the K110D, are the companys first DSLR models to forgo the rather confusing "*istD" branding. Both share an identical (newly developed) body and feature set, with the exception o...

Bad Very warm color balance in low-lighting and slightly warm outdoors Auto white balance had a hard time with household incandescent lighting Slightly high contrast Slow AF, especially indoors...
Bottom line The Pentax K100D is a capable digital SLR, perfect for consumers interested in stepping up from a basic consumer digital camera and into a world of better image quality. Its also a smart choice for owners of Pentax film SLRs and lenses who want to go...

In 1976 Pentax replaced its venerable Spotmatic 35mm SLR with a new camera called the K1000; a very basic manual exposure single lens reflex (SLR) designed to help neophyte shooters learn basic photography skills. The K1000 enjoyed one of the longest...
Bottom line Serious amateur shooters may have a few issues, but family snap-shooters, P&S digicam users just making the jump to a dSLR, student photographers, casual shutterbugs, and old timers with a collection of Pentax glass will appreciate the K100D's reasona...

DET ÄR INGA jätteförändringar som Pentax tekniker gjort. Om Pentax var så nöjda med K100D att de inte tyckte att det behövdes ändras så mycket eller om Pentax inte tyckte attdet var lönt att göra om kameran mer kan man undra.Genom att erbjuda inbyggd b...

Formgivningen av kameran är inte riktigt speciell, t.o.m en aning tråkig. Den ser ut som om man inte hade tänkt allt för mycket över utseendet. Men att designarna av Pentax säkert har tänkt över saken, märks först när man börjar jobba med kame...
