Pentax has announced and confirmed the launch of their new mid-range DSLR camera. Known as the Pentax K-7, its expected to arrive us in the UK by end of June. With several new user-friendly features, including video recording, high dynamic range (HDR), and automatic horizon correction, Pentax looks to compete with the likes of Nikon D5000 however the K-7 will be more expensive than both similarly specced cameras from Canon and Nikon in the UK.
The new DSLR will feature a 14.6-megapixel sensor, ISO 100 to ISO 6400 settings and the company’s PRIME II imaging engine, an upgrade of the original PRIME. Continuous shooting gives a nice 5.2 images per second, like most new DSLRs, the K-7 too has “Live View” as well as video recording mode.
Citroen announced plans earlier last week to revive the DS nameplate for a line of mid-range premium models based on the new C3, C4 and C5. They decided that they could no longer wait for the Geneva Motor Show debut of the new Citroen DS3 and published a few images of the concept a few weeks early and rightly so I can understand why!
