Pentax K-r Overview

The Pentax K-r Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Zoom Lens (White) is that lightweight, mid-range 12.4MP digital SLR camera with a 3x zoom lens that also shoots dazzling 720p HD video that you've been looking for.

Wait! That's not all: the K-r has an efficient dust removal mechanism that automatically shakes dust off the CMOS sensor, a custom image function for applying one of nine creative modes (such as Bleach Bypass, a dramatic effect used in movies) to any particular image you wish, a digital filter function with a choice of 18 filters to process images without a computer (including Starburst, Sketch, High Contrast, Fisheye, Toy Camera, Posterization, Retro, etc.), an upgraded HDR (High Dynamic Range) function to create a superb image in difficult lighting situations (by combining 3 different exposures of the same scene) even when not using a tripod, and 3 different cross processing options to create dramatically different colors. It even has a high-speed infrared data transmission system--the first in a Pentax camera.
