Pentax K100D Digital SLR Review - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation Review

This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

Despite the overcast conditions, the K100D has produced a nicely balanced shot with good contrast and very natural colour balance.


Shooting into the sun can be a problem, but the K100D’s 16-point metering system has coped perfectly. The 2:3 aspect ratio is the same as a 35mm film SLR.


The SMC Pentax DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens is very good, producing excellent edge-to-edge sharpness and minimal distortion even at the widest end.
