The Pentax K-r is a DSLR camera that is designed to be easy to use. A number of scene modes automatically adjust the settings according to the environment, and low light shooting is enabled with a fast shutter and sensitive 25600 ISO senor. A number of special effect filters are also built in for artistic expression. Images are captured by the 12.4 megapixel CMOS sensor for high resolution photos, and auto shooting allows images to be captured at 6 per second in order to catch the right moment. HD video recording is also available in 720p detail. A rechargable lithium-ion battery powers the camera, but it is also compatible with AA batteries if needed.

Love the picture I found for this...



Something about the #Pentax_K_r actually looks quite attractive. I wish more cameras were available in garish colours like that. Gives it some personality and makes it look so much less grim, even though it's clearly a very serious image capturing device. I'm sure this has an effect on your human subjects, and maybe even yourself as a photographer. It just screams: have fun, and don't take this so seriously.

I think this looks awesome. This is how they should advertise this camera, it makes you think you could take 'fun' pictures with it.
