Pentax 100D DSLR - LCD monitor|
According to Steve Digicams: "The K100D's large 2.5-inch LCD monitor was a pleasure to use. Like other dSLR's the LCD is used to review images, display image capture parameters and navigate the camera's menu system. Although it can not be used as a live viewfinder, the LCD can be used to preview composition, exposure and focus by rotating the Main Switch to preview with Digital Preview set in the Preview Method Custom Function. The LCD was usable even on the sunniest of days, and the menu text was very easy to read, thanks to the large text, the LCD's brightness and contrast, and the colors chosen for the menu display."
Pentax K100D review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "The image noise was practically non-existent at ISO 200, at ISO 400 it's still very clean, and at ISO 800 shadow noise becomes noticeable. At ISO 1600 noise becomes noticeable in highlights, but the images are quite usable. ISO 3200 introduced noise and loss of image detail to the extent that you'll only use it if it made the difference between capturing an image or not; use of the Shake Reduction feature should enable the use of lower shutter speeds at lower ISO settings."
