Pentax Officially Announces the K-7 Digital SLR Camera

Pentax K-7 Digital SLR Camera

Now it’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 14° F or -10° C), making it ideal for use in any environment.

Top shutter speed for the K-7 is 1/8000 second, and it’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.
