The New K7 Is The Highestspecified Pentax Dslr

aberration and distortion compensation.

Perhaps the biggest surprise, however, is the inclusion of HD video capture. The K-7 can shoot video at 1536 x 1024 and 1280 x 720 pixels, at 30fps, while also boasting an external microphone input for superior audio and an HDMI terminal for display on HD-ready TV sets.

If those aren't enough features for you, the K-7 also boasts an electronic level indicator, a multiple exposure mode, and a set of 16 digital effects filters. Pentax has also retained key features from the company's existing K20D, including Shake Reduction, an upgraded Dust Removal system, and a dedicated Raw button.

All of this is housed in a body built from magnesium-steel alloy on a stainless-steel alloy frame, with 77 seals to make the camera dustproof, weather and cold-resistant down to -10°C. Despite the robust construction the K-7 is the smallest camera in its class, and the lightest, at just 670g (body only, without battery). The high-capacity battery can produce up to 980 shots per charge and there is also an optional battery grip available.

The K-7 will be available from late June/early July at a launch price of £1,199 for the body only, or £30 more with the 18-55mm kit lens.
