Pentax K-30 16MP weather-sealed mid-level DSLR previewed
Published on Monday, May 21, 2012 10:00:00 PM GMT

It can shoot continuously at up to 6 frames per second, has a maximum shutter speed of 1/6000th of a second and can capture video at 1080p30.

Pentax launches smc DA 50mm F1.8 for APS-C cameras
Published on Monday, May 21, 2012 10:00:00 PM GMT

Pentax has announced the DA 50mm f/1.8, an affordable telephoto prime lens for APS-C interchangeable lens cameras.
