July 5, 2007: The new Pentax K100D Super digital SLR camera will soon be available in Australia.
Other features include 11-point wide-frame AF using the sophisticated SAFOX VIII autofocus system, a large 2.5 inch colour LCD monitor with 210,000-pixel resolution and a lightweight penta-mirror viewfinder, which combines Pentax original finder optics with a Natural-Bright-Matte II focusing screen to deliver a bright, clear subject image with a 0.85 times magnification and 96-percent field of view.
The new camera is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards and a new SDM system, which assures smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a built in supersonic motor. When the lens equipped with SDM system is mounted on the Pentax K100D Super camera body, the focus mode is automatically switched to SDM-assisted autofocusing.
Nineteen custom functions allow photographers to personalise camera settings. Consecutive shooting is supported at up to five frames at the speed of approximately 2.8 frames per second (at BEST image quality in JPEG format). Eight distinctive Scene modes are provided, along with a choice of two preview functions (digital/optical). Users can also choose between two CR-V3 lithium batteries, or four AA-size batteries to power the camera. Five digital filters (black-and-white, sepia, slim, soft and brightness) allow editing of recorded images. The new camera is supplied with Pentax Photo Laboratory 3 RAW data and image processing software and Pentax Photo Browser 3 image browser software.
