Pentax debuts latest K-series DSLR

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Pentax has introduced the K-r, its latest compact digital SLR.

The K-r packs in a 12.4Mp, 24 x 16mm sensor and a 3in, 921,000-dot LCD to view your pictures on.

In addition to stills, the K-r will also shoot 720p video.

Pentax also touted the K-r's battery design, which allows you to swap out a dead rechargeable for a set of four AAs. The catch in the small print? You need an optional "AA battery adaptor" to do so, and it doesn't come in the box.

Available in a choice of black, white and red bodies - the latter two only available bundled with 18-55mm lenses - the K-r goes on sale on 11 October, Pentax said. It didn't provide pricing. ®
