Pentax K2000 DSLR Whitens Up

Pentax K2000 DSLR Whitens UpWhen Pentax rolled out its K2000 DSLR digital camera last September,it pretty much looked like all the other DSLRs out there: black, blocky body, lots of controls, and features designed to appeal to both photo pros and savvy consumers who have advanced beyond thecapabilities of point-and-shoot compact cameras. Now, Pentax has decided to play the style card, announcing a limited white-bodied edition ofthe K2000 will be available in February 2009.

Specs on the camera are unchanged: 10.2 megapixel resolution, a 2.7-inch LCD display, ten scene modes plus custom image modes, SD and SDHC storage, and a sensor system to keep dust out of images. The camera also features mechanical image stabilization, 3.5 fps high-speed shooting, sensitivity down to ISO 3200, and a five-point autofocus system. The white version of the K2000 will also feature white version of Pentax’s new DA L series of lenses.

Pentax says the white K2000 will be available in “very limited” quantities, and doesn’t offer any pricing information; however, the everyday black K2000s are priced around $600 to $700.
