Pentax reveals K-50, K-500, Q7 cameras with 120 color combinations
Pentax Ricoh has introduced two K-mount DSLRs and one mirrorless camera. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287649==http://www.pentaximaging.com/dslr/K-50_Custom_Colors" rel='nofollow'>K-50</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287650==http://www.pentaximaging.com/dslr/K-500" rel='nofollow'>K-500</a> DSLRs both improve on the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287652==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/05/22/pentax.k.30.debuts.offers.numerous.enhancements/" rel='nofollow'>K-30</a>, while still using the same sensor 16.5-megapixel APS-C sensor, while the mirrorless <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287651==http://www.pentaximaging.com/hybrid/Q7_Custom_Colors" rel='nofollow'>Q7</a> uses a larger 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor than the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287653==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/09/11/pentax.makes.q10.interchangeable.lens.compact.k.5. replacements.official/" rel='nofollow'>Q10</a>, though maintains the same 12.4-megapixel resolution. <br />
<br />
The weather-resistant K-50 is capable of shooting at six frames per second, with the ISO able to go as high as 51,200, at a shutter speed of up to 1/6000 of a second, and using the SAFOX IXi+ autofocus system. The viewfinder offers 100-percent field of view coverage, and is accompanied by a three-inch LCD display on the rear, and compatibility with the Eye-Fi SD card system. It will also be available in a choice of 120 different color combinations. <br />
<br />
The K-500 has relatively similar specifications to the K-50, though lacking the color options and weather-proofing. Suggested as an entry-level DSLR, the K-500 also swaps out the lithium batteries used in the K-50, and instead allows it to run off four AA batteries. <br />
<br />
The Q7, weighing 7 ounces, is able to take shots at ISO 12,800 and includes the same SAFOX IXi+ 11 point and 9 cross autofocus system as the two DSLRs. It is able to use 19 smart effects and filters, along with 7 lens effects, and the option to overlay effects on top of each other, Eye-Fi support, shake reduction a three-inch LCD, and the same 120 color options. <br />
<br />
The Q7 will be shipping in August for $500 as part of a kit with an "O2" lens, while the K-50 and K-500 will be shipping with an 18-55mm lens at the end of June for $780 and $600 respectively.
