Crazy colors, lots of â€˜em. Pentax goes full steam ahead with their idea of having the usually staid black DSLR in any color you like with the new K-r digital SLR camera. The new Pentax DSLR is available in all sorts of colors in Japan. You can even have all those various colors in one DSLR.
But donâ€™t let the colors distract from the fact that Pentax continues to make some of the best DSLRs around. The new Pentax K-r has some serious specs: 12.4 megapixels, 3-inch LCD screen with 921K dots of resolution, 6fps in burst mode with up to 25 images in a single sequence, max shutter speed of 1/6000sec and high sensitivity 100-25,600 ISO range, among others.
The Pentax K-r DSLR will ship in October. Body only price is $800; with an 18-55mm kit lens itâ€™s only $850; with double kit lenses 18-55 and 50-200 the price goes up to $900, and higher still at $1,000 for the K-r with two 18-55 and 55-300mm kit lenses.
And yes, all those colors are available only in Japan. If youâ€™re elsewhere, like in Europe or the United States, the K-r will be available only in red, white and the usual black; maybe Pentax thinks youâ€™re not that crazy with colors.
