Pentax K-r Digital Camera Review
The Pentax K-r may look like a stormtrooper, but this might be the DSLR you're looking for.
The Pentax K-r is an entry-level DSLR that is designed for those just getting into higher-end photography or those who have shot with another DSLR before. It features a stainless steel chassis beneath a mostly plastic body, a 12.4-megapixel CMOS sensor, and a 3-inch 921k-dot LCD display. It is designed to be simple to operate, but still perform at a level comparable to any camera at its sub-$700 price point. We found the K-r to offer enough great handling, very extensive menu options, and enough performance to make it worth a long look for anyone in the market for an entry-level DSLR. In typical Pentax fashion, the camera is available in a number of colors, including black, red, and classic white.
