Pentax announces the new K20D and K200D DSLR cameras days before the PMA 2008 camera trade-show opens its doors.

The new flagship PENTAX K20D replaces the K10D and features a huge 14.6MP resolution. The Pentax K20D advanced features include dust-proof and weather-resistant bodies, an improved PRIME image processor, and PENTAX developed Shake Reduction that works with any of the 24 million PENTAX lenses ever manufactured.
More feature highlights of the K20D:

  • A newly developed CMOS image sensor to bring out the optimum
          performance of PENTAX interchangeable lenses.  Featuring 14.6
          effective megapixels and the latest noise-reduction technology, the
          sensor assures superb image quality.
  • Custom Image functions that allow users to select between six preset
          options and further adjust image processing, including saturation,
          hue, contrast and sharpness.  The K20D also offers an Expanded Dynamic
          Range function that allows users to gain more contrast and detail in
          bright settings.
  • A Live View that allows users to see the full image area to confirm
          composition, focus status and lighting on the large 2.7 inch LCD
          monitor.  A grid display may be engaged to help assure the perfect
          arrangement of an image and Auto Focus may be activated by simply
          pressing the AF button on the back of the camera.  Further fine tuning
          of the image can be confirmed with the 4X or 8X zoom option.
  • An improved Dust Reduction system that features the new Dust Alert
          function to pinpoint the exact location of dust particles for the
          photographer to remove.
  •  A weather and dust resistant body that allows photographers to keep
          shooting even in harsh conditions.
  •  A PC sync socket for more advanced photographers who use studio
          lighting.
     

The new Pentax K200D is designed for first time SLR users and features a 10.2MP resolution and all the advanced imaging technology of the award winning K10D.

The PENTAX K20D (body only) digital SLR model will ship in April 2008 for US $1299.95, while the PENTAX K200D digital SLR will ship in March 2008 for US $799.95 (with new 18-55mm lens).
