Pentax K100D Super Review

What Digital Camera
1 November 2007
  • Summary: This clearly feels like a stop-gap camera to wring a few extra months of life out of the K100D until a proper replacement came along (the K200D), but it’s no less worthy for that. It’s nicely designed, performs well and delivers great results.
  • Pros: Handling, Image Quality, Low noise, Built-in IS, Price
  • Cons: Burst shooting performance, Too menu dependent, Menu interface, No Raw+JPEG option

DP Review
25 August 2007
  • Conclusion: When we reviewed the *ist DS it was a camera which equally surprised and disappointed; on one hand it was one of those cameras which functioned beyond its expectation or billing, and on the other it disappointed with its relatively poor in-camera image processor, which simply wasn't delivering the...
  • Pros: About as good as six megapixel resolution gets, crisp and detailed, a big improvement, Excellent detail even at higher ISO's, overall noise levels on par with competition, Effective long exposure noise reduction (necessary too), Accurate and fast auto-focus, although focus motor slightly noisy, O...
  • Cons: Limited continuous shooting capability, buffer only large enough for four JPEG frames, Over-saturated default image tone ('Bright'), can lead to channel clipping, Relatively loud shutter release, Slightly humorous user interface compromise ('Cntnuos expsr'), No orientation sensor (hence orientati...

  • Pros: Handling, image quality, ease of use, price
  • Cons: Pentamirror viewfinder, indistinct finder info display, some key controls only in menus
