The Pentax **ist DL packs an interline interlace 23.5 x 15.7 mm CCD with a primary color filter. This prosumer digital SLR can shoot 8 bit color in JPEG format and 12 bit in RAW. We tested how accurate those colors are by taking several exposures of the industry standard GretagMacbeth color chart. After uploading the images into Imatest Imaging Software, we analyzed the data and output charts to see how close the **ist DL’s colors come to reality.
