    Pentax K200D Digital Camera

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The entry-level DSLR digital camera market is a crowded field, with some strong contenders. If you're going to compete in that arena, you'd better have some features that set you apart. Today we're going to look at Pentax's entrant, the K200D digital camera. What makes this entry-level camera different? Is it worth the price? Keep reading to find out.


    It seems as if the Pentax K200D digital camera has some stiff competition as it enters the ring to compete with the likes of theNikon D60, theOlympus E-520and theCanon EOS 450Din the entry level segment of the market, but Pentax has nothing to worry about. Aside from a reasonable price, the K200D also offers a range of more than desirable features, which include a "shake reduction" or SR system, dust removal and perhaps the most unique and unusual feature for this type of camera: a weather-sealed body and large viewfinder with 96 percent coverage and a magnification of 0.85.

    The K200D's shake reduction system alone makes it worth its price. Photographers, both amateur and professional alike, can consider blurred hand-held photographs, particularly those taken with telephotos or long exposure times, a thing of the past. Two sensors are used by the SR system to detect any vibrations and compensate for any movements by the 10.2 megapixel CCD. This blurring protection system occurs directly at the CCD, saving the user from having to purchase special and undoubtedly expensive lenses. Even more impressive is the fact that the Pentax K-mount bayonet enables just about any Pentax lens to be used with the new K200D.


    Even amateur photographers know that you can't choose a digital camera based on how it looks in pictures, but rather what kind of pictures it takes. Fair enough, though it should be pointed out that the K2D00 is a ridiculously good-looking digital camera; much of its looks come from a very sturdy design, which features some of the heaviest construction in its price range. Its plastic body and metal frame make it the densestPentaxto date. Let's not forget the camera's dust sealing around the buttons and doors, gaskets and seals, giving it a soft, spongy feeling around those locations.
