Pentax *ist DS – Digital SLR Review - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation Review


This page consists of resized images (to Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 50) in order for you to evaluate the overall exposure.

”’The 18-55mm SMC Pentax DA lens sold with the *ist DS is equivalent to a 27-83mm lens on a 355mm system, ideal for wide-angle shots like this.”’


”’Colour reproduction is outstanding on all channels, with lots of detail even on the brightest highlights.”’


”’The built-in flash has a guide number of 17.5 at 200ISO, so it has plenty of range, and can cover the same area as the 18mm lens.”’


”’No, not taken in Australia but in Dawlish, Devon, which is famous for the black swans that live right in the town centre.”’
