PentaxPentax K-30 waterproof SLR camera : Pentax Ricoh Imaging announce the introduction of its new weather and dust resistant digital SLR camera - the Pentax K-30. Ideal for photographers with active outdoor lifestyles, the new Pentax K-30 combines a compact, lightweight body with many advanced features found only in higher end DSLR camera models, such as a weather, dust and cold resistant body, a glass prism optical finder with 100% field of view, state-of-the-art autofocusing, and full HD video recording capabilities. The exterior of the Pentax K-30 has been designed to be both sporty and functional for active outdoor photographers - a large grip provides a firm, secure hold of the camera; a low-profile pentaprism housing for reduced height; and a rounded, soft-rubber casing for a solid grip of the camera during vertical shooting.
