    A Great DSLR – Pentax keeps getting better and better, October 31, 2010

    This review is from: Pentax K-r 12.4 MP Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (Black) (Electronics)

    I have been using the KR now for almost a week so these are my initial impressions. The best way to describe this camera is a KR with several new improvements, though more evolutionary than revolutionary.

    My favorite new features are the improved LCD (higher resolution), visible AF point, faster live view focusing, faster shooting at 6 FPS and faster focusing in all environments, especially in low light though with the new AF assist lamp. I cannot emphasize the AF capability in low light. The KR focuses fast, even in almost total darkness.

    Another new feature is the capability to use AA batteries as well as Lithium ion. It comes with a Lithium ion battery and charger to start.

    The image stabilization is still in body as Pentax has been doing for years. This allows the use of many Pentax lens and still have stabilization.

    The high ISO capability with the KR is great as it is with the KX. I had a T2i and find the high ISO capability better with the KR. Plus the white balance requires less adjustment with the Pentax. It seems like I was always modifying the white balance settings with the T2i. This came as a shock to me knowing some of the white balance issues I have seen with Pentax cameras in the past.

    One of the coolest new features that I really like is the capability to convert the last JPG picture taken to RAW. So let’s say you take a picture and you cannot take it again (one time opportunity!) and the JPG was not up to par…You can save it as RAW and then convert in camera or in software later. This is only possible for the last JPG taken however.

    The video will work in a pinch but is not the strength of this camera. It is 720P and 25 FPS with no auto focus. The T2i is better in this arena but I honestly never used it much. Despite DSLR improvements in this area (especially with the T2i), I still prefer using a camcorder.

    However, the KR is a photographic tool and has lots of options once you start wanting to experiment a little more. Get it with the 55-300 lens (great lens!) if you can swing it. It is a great deal with the 2 lens kit and truly a savings versus buying it later.

    Pentax is often overlooked in the DSLR arena. The KX has been a great seller for Pentax. If you have one, I would not necessarily upgrade to the KR, though some of the new features are nice. If you are looking for your first DSLR or possibly switching from another brand, I highly recommend the KR.

    This is my 5th Pentax Digital Camera. I currently own and use the Pentax K-r, K-x and K200. They are all exceptional cameras that produce stunning results with nominal effort. By far, the K-r has shown it superiority in rapid focus in low light conditions. The cameras are small, sturdy and perform as expected. The price for these entry level and serious amateur cameras is a bargain considering the superior results. Add a quality 2.8 prime lens and turn out photos to rival Cannon and Nikon at one-third the price.

    I chose Pentax because I already have 2 Pentax SLR bodies and wanted to be able to use my lenses. I chose the K-R over the K-X based on a lot of reading and what I thought was a good fit for me (and cost, too).

    I love my new camera! I got it less than a week before a trip to Europe and am extremely satisfied with the photos I took without a chance to really learn the camera. I am a total amateur and new to digital cameras, so when I say it is easy to use – it really is.

    My favorite features so far:

    exceptional low-light results – I can only say WOW!
    capability to use AA batteries as well as Lithium ion – I bought the AA adapter and had to use it in an emergency – so glad I had this as a back up to the lithium battery

    Couple of reasons I picked this camera:

    said capability to use AA batteries
    stabilization in the body not in the lenses

    I’ve taken a couple of thousand photos with it and am really pleased with the results. I’m looking forward to really learning what it can do.
