PentaxPentax K-500 digital SLR camera : Pentax is pleased to announce the launch of the Pentax K-500 digital SLR camera. With its sound specifications and outstanding value for money, this new model is designed to make high-quality digital SLR photography accessible to everyone. The Pentax K-500 has been developed to resemble the higher end Pentax K-50 digital SLR camera. This lower cost model inherits features such as a compact, lightweight, easy-to-hold body; high-resolution image reproduction with approximately 16.2 megapixels; super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 51200; and high-speed shooting at approximately six images per second, making it an ideal camera for all levels of photographer.

Pentax K500
The Pentax K-500 features a state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor with a large image-capturing area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm, which gives high-speed image data readout. This image sensor is coupled with PRIME M (the same high performance imaging engine used in the higher end models), to deliver high-resolution, rich-gradation digital images with approximately 16.28 effective megapixels. The Pentax K500 also offers high sensitivity shooting at a top level of ISO 51200, allowing the photographer to capture beautiful night time shots.

Full HD video recording
The Pentax K-500 records high-resolution, full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels) in the H.264 recording format, with a choice of frame rate (30, 25 or 24 frames per second). It also offers creative image-processing tools like Custom Images, and movie recording features such as an interval movie recording function, for the production of more personalised movies.

Pentax K-500 autofocus
The new Pentax K-500 DSLR camera features the state-of-the-art SAFOX IXi+ AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation with 11 sensors (including nine cross-type sensors in the middle). It also features a spot beam projector to assist AF operation in poorly lit locations. Its select-area expansion function keeps the sensor module tracking a moving subject, even when it moves out of a pre-assigned auto-tracking area, by assessing distance data collected by neighboring focus sensors. As the result, not only the accuracy and speed of detecting moving subjects during autofocus operation, but also the auto-tracking performance of moving subjects when using a telephoto lens, have been greatly improved.

Pentax K-500 price
The Pentax K-500 + 18-55 mm DAL lens is available for a retail price of £ 449.99. Visit the Pentax website for more information and technical K-500 specifications.
