Pentax Launches K-30 Weather-Resistant DSLR and Optio LS465 Compact

Pentax has announced a new mid-range DSLR camera. The K-30 has a 23.7mm by 15.7mm CMOS sensor for 16.2-megapixel images as well as shake-reduction technology.

The company says the camera’s body is compact like an entry-level DSLR but has features usually found in more advanced models. The body itself is weather-resistant, cold-proof and dust-proof.

The glass prism finder claims to have an almost 100-per cent field of view. The camera can shoot approximately six images per second. It has a shutter speed up to 1/6000th second and a maximum ISO of 12,800 (or 25,600 using a custom function). For video, it can capture Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, at 30 frames per second.

It comes in three colours: Crystal White, Crystal Blue or Classic Black, and it’s on sale from the end of June, at a price to be confirmed.

Pentax also announced a new compact model, the Optio LS465. Priced at £89.99, the pocket-friendly camera weighs only 104g and measures 102 x 46 x 18mm.

On sale from mid June, it will be available in Sapphire black, Ruby pink and Amethyst purple colours. The look of the camera can be customised with one of 10 different acrylic inserts.
