Now itâ€™s official: the Pentax K-7 mid-range DSLR signals to the world that the venerable Pentax name (under Hoya management) is still very much in the game dominated by Canon and Nikon.
The 14.6-megapixel Pentax K-7 offers novel features like video recording, in-camera HDR and automatic horizon correction. Likewise, its standard dustproof feature has been upgraded to a newly developed DR II dust removal system. The K-7 is weather, dust and cold resistant (to 14Â° F or -10Â° C), making it ideal for use in any environment.
Top shutter speed for the K-7 is 1/8000 second, and itâ€™s good for 100,000 actuations. Continuous shooting rate is 5.2 frames per second for up to 40 JPEG images.
The Pentax K-7 is scheduled to ship this July with an MSRP of $1300, body only.
