Latest Digital SLR From Pentax

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, September 2, 2009

      The latest digital SLR from Pentax.    I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     It's one of the new breed of digital SLR cameras that can shoot high definition video.   But the Pentax K7 has plenty of other worthwhile characteristics that make it worth considering.   Senior marketing manager John Carlson...

 "The first one is going to be the size of the camera.  It's one of the smallest cameras in that category.   And then there's a magnesium alloy body and it's weather sealed.   Additionally you have a high resolution sensor, 14.6 megapixels, with the ability to capture HD quality videos.   You've got a large viewfinder, 100 percent field of view. "

       If you have an old Pentax film SLR camera....you'll be pleased to know that those lenses will work on Pentax digital SLRs as well.     At 13 hundred dollars...it isn't a camera for beginners, but for Pentax fans, the arrival of the K7 is welcome news.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more, at BootCamp.com.   I'm Fred Fishkin.
