After details of its new camera were leaked onto the web yesterday, Pentax has 'fessed up about its new DSLR. The K-x is $650-worth of DSLR, with a 12.4 megapixel CMOS censor, 4.7 fps continual shooting, 720p HD video at 24 fps, and comes with an 18-55 mm lens. Throw in image sensor cleaning, 11 selectable auto-focus point and a PRIME II imaging engine, and you'll be staying home to save your shekels before the K-x hits the shops in October.
With a 2.7-inch LCD screen, and ISO sensitivity that ranges from 100 to 12,800, the 1.13-pound camera will be available in four colors: black; white; and limited-edition versions in red and navy. And if none of those are your shades, then move to Japan and customize the body yourself — 20 body and nine grip colors are available. Pink and yeller, anyone?
