Pentax K10D dSLR Digital Camera Review

Pentax K10DWith an excellent dust-proof, weather-resistant, ergonomic design and stability, the dSLR K10D (released in September 2006) is not a point and shoot camera: there are a lot custom settings, and you will have to find the ones that are the most important to your style. Pentax K10D brings some unique features and exposure modes into a very thoughtful and ergonomic design, like vibrating CCD sensor provides built-in Dust Reduction and Shake Reduction. At high ISO, the image quality, however, is pour.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
