The "Limited Edition" Pentax K10D Grand Prix has been launched to commemorate the Pentax K10D winning the illustrious Camera Grand Prix 2007. This highly acclaimed award crowns the impressive list that also includes the sought after T.I.P.A Best Expert D-SLR 2007.
Developed as the result of PENTAX's pursuit of higher-quality, finer-resolution digital images, the K10D combines 10.2 effective megapixels with an array of advanced features and a series of improvements at every stage of digital SLR photography. PENTAX believes that, while some of these technologies and improvements may not be actually reflected in the product's specifications, they do make a significant difference in the final images. Important features include the PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction (SR) system to minimize the adverse effects of camera shake, a newly developed A/D converter designed to convert a large volume of data more faithfully and swiftly, and a new high-performance imaging engine designed exclusively for the K10D.
The K10D also comes equipped with a host of features and functions designed to assist the photographer in various aspects of high-quality digital SLR photography. They include a new Dust Removal (DR) system to keep dust off the CCD surface, a PENTAX-original exposure system for faithful reproduction of the photographer's creative intentions, and a dependable dust-resistant, weather-resistant body construction. All combined, the K10D delivers exceptionally high image quality and responds brilliantly to the exacting demands of advanced photographers.
