  1. Pentax K-S1 review

    Hands on: Pentax K-S1 review

     

    Canon and Nikon are not the only D-SLR makers. Pentax is still there too, though the K-S1 might not be its finest hour

    On paper, the Pentax K-3 offers a lot of bang for your buck. But is it enough to tempt away the hordes from the Canon and Nikon standard?

    Pentax K-50 review

    Pentax K-50 review

    8  

    The Pentax K-50 competes with Canon and Nikon's entry-level models, but it offers some exciting extras and is a bit tougher than most SLRs.

    Pentax K-500 review

    Hands on: Pentax K-500 review

     

    This DSLR has got the same sensor as the K-50 and K-30, but it's a bit more affordable.

    Pentax has given its latest Q compact system camera a 1/1.7-inch sensor. We take a look at the new model.

    The Q10 from Pentax is as compact as a compact system camera can be, but is it any good?

    Is the combination of the Pentax K-mount with mirrorless technology and Marc Newson design, a marriage made in heaven?

    Pentax is pitching its new SLR right at the bottom end of the market. Have corners have been cut?

    Pentax K200D review

    Pentax K200D review

    9  

    At first sight the Pentax K200D does look very much like the K20D, and the model numbers are confusingly similar. There are significant differences, though. The K20D, reviewed in issue 72, has a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a Live View mode. The K200D reviewed here has a regular 10-megapixel CCD and no Live View. Despite that, the K200D is a very accomplished little camera, which shares many of the features of its bigger brother.

    Pentax K20D review

    On the surface, the K20D is not unlike the K10D. Under the skin, though, it's very different. The biggest change is the swap to a 14.6-megapixel CMOS sensor. It's clear by now that you don't get a lot more definition with these higher pixel counts, but every little helps and it does mean that fine detail is resolved with a little more subtlety.

    Pentax K100D Super review

    Pentax K100D Super review

    9  

    We were rather scathing in our write up of the K100D Super's predecessor, the plain old K100D. Our grumpiness was largely because the design hadn't changed much since the days of the *ist D - if anything this incarnation is larger, yet at the same time less fussy - and, with a six megapixel resolution it felt overpriced at £600 when you could buy a 10MP DSLR for a similar outlay.

    Pentax K10D review

    9  

    The last Pentax SLR we reviewed, the K100D, is pleasing enough but disappointing in certain respects. The main issue is that it's cosmetically and technically hard to distinguish from all the Pentax cameras that have gone before

    Pentax K100D review

    8  

    The K100D is the latest in a very long line of 6-megapixel Pentax DSLRs, which doesn't seem physically that different from the *ist D. The surprisingly compact body is built around a metal chassis and finished off with tough, matt-black plastics.

    Pentax *ist DS review

    Pentax *ist DS review

    9  

    Pentax claims that the *ist DS is the smallest and lightest digital SLRon the market at moment. This isn't just some hollow boast based on afew millimetres shaved here and there, but a difference that's obvious
