Pentax K200D digital SLR - Test shots - Exposure evaluation

By Jamie Harrison



Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Skin tones are rendered very naturally, producing excellent results in the studio.


Exposure metering is very accurate.


The metering copes well with these bright highlights.


Shooting at 1/45sec I was able to get sharp results, but I wouldn't recommend going lower.

Can you use old K mount lenses on this camera ?

If so what is the focal length conversion factor ?

The wikipedia English page on the Pentax K200D mentions that, and if you click on the "K-mount" link you have more detailed information about the eventual need of stop-down metering.
