High ISO speed and the weapons of the new Pentax digital SLR
Today, the first act of ‘expected range of Pentax renewal with the official announcement of the new Pentax Kr In these years, Pentax has distinguished itself among the other manufacturers of digital SLR cameras to its range of products reduced in number but each one the result of careful research and innovation and always offered at very attractive conditions, a lot of smoke and little substance so to speak.
The new Pentax Kr is inserted between the excellent entry-level Kx, awarded by TIPA as the best camera in the 2010 entry-level category, and Admiral K-7, keeping the same sensor before and refining functions eliminating the few points weaknesses that may have prevented the Pentax Kx to get credit from the market. The Pentax Kx of which we have often employed on these pages is one of the best digital cameras APS-C for its performance at high and very high sensitivity, exceeding the same as K-7 and placing itself in comparison with levels of reflex higher-end digital, Kr doubles today, giving an upper limit of sensitivity extended up to ISO 12800-25600 3200-6400 against the Kx and the expectations will be kept imagining what we can expect levels of quality. But that’s not all in the new Pentax, let’s see the main features of the first pending laboratory tests.

System, therefore the two critical points raised in evidence against the Pentax Kx namely the inability to view in the viewfinder AF point active use Exclusive AA rechargeable AA batteries, the Pentax Kr is thus presented with all the papers in to deserve a reserved place in the bags of the fans even better with the new economic and Pentax 35mm f/2.4.
