New Pentax K-5 DSLR gets unveiled.

Pentax unveiled today the new Pentax K-5 DSLR camera with 16.28MP resolution. The Pentax K-5 also offers a wide sensitivity range between ISO 100 and ISO 12800. The K-5's high-speed continuous shooting mode records as many as 22 images (in the JPEG recording format) in a single sequence at a maximum speed of seven images per second.

The K-5 features a glass-prism finder with a nearly 100% field of view and at 0.92-times magnification (with a 50mm F1.4 lens at infinity) to provide a better view of the image field and improve the accuracy and speed of focusing and image composition.

The Pentax K-5 captures movie clips in 16:9 Full HD (1960 x 1080 pixels) at a frame rate of 25 frames per second. There is no mentioning of auto-focus in the press-release.

The K-5 features an improved HDR (high dynamic range) function to create one composite image with an extra-wide gradation range from three images with different exposures, without requiring a computer.

Pentax did not reveal the pricing of the K-5 yet.

Pentax also unveiled the K-r DSLR camera for Photokina 2010.
