Pentax has uncovered its new digital SLR camera, the K-30 with some enhanced weather and dust resistance capabilities. The SLR camera superbly combines a set of coveted attributes such as a compact and lightweight body and sophisticated camera features. Pentax brags high-tech auto-focusing, full HD video capturing, cold and dust resistive body and a superb glass prism optical finder as major traits of the new K-30. Well, it is a “spiritual successor” to Pentax’s toy-like K-r camera, says Engadget.
The SLR camera has been manufactured with every detail getting state-of-the-art and dynamic water resistance technologies. According to John Carlson of Pentax, every corner and button of the K-30 has been weather sealed and toughened up against drops. Indeed, it might be one of the best SLRs out in stores for adventurous creative photographers. With this camera, users can go for a hiking and trekking and get in engaged in any outdoor activities with no worry.
Going by tech specs, the K-30 comes up with many rich features. The SLR camera shows off a high-speed burst shooting that can deliver a speed of six snaps every second. Further, the camera touts a high-speed shutter unit that provides a maximum speed of 1/6000 per second. The K-30 also has a great look with an ergonomic grip to ensure stable and comfy control. Along with its sporty look, the camera will certainly guarantee a reliable and faultless performance.
Pentax is to bring the K-30 SLR camera into market with three body colors; crystal blue, crystal white and black. The camera will be available at retail stores in the U.S. in July 2012 with an expected price of $849.95 for body only. The kit, which contains the DA L 18-55mm zoom lens, comes for a massive $899.95, however.
