K200D review on DPREVIEW is out

Pentax K200D Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review

Strange conclusion... Don't they (DPREVIEW testers) really know that jpeg could be adjustable?


They says:
"Luckily there are two ways of working around this limitation though. You can either modify the default settings or, even better, shoot in RAW."

Conclusion - Pros
Good range of JPEG customization options.
Overall - Highly Recommended (if you shoot in RAW).

Why? I can make a lot of versions of in-camera jpeg. To my taste. A lot of. K200D has several adjustable image modes.

Where is logic?

I think Pentax should just slip a few one pound notes into the battery compartment of the next few cameras they ship to dpreview, perhaps that will help dpreview better judging their cameras.

Pretty much.

Have you noticed also how Nikon and Canon always fair at least slightly better than either Pentax or Olympus in all tests?

More over, it can be easily edited in Photoshop CS3 and Lightroom 1/2.
White balance, black level clarity etc....
I left RAW, cause I can easily adjust JPEG and my K10D has great WB control.

K200D takes the same point numer for features like D60 (8.0) !!! Really ... but did they look on that comparison table made by themselves in the same review ? Thats weird (or maybe not knowing who made the review).

Cosmin,

Don't forget that for C and N the points start at +1 and for the rest at -0.5. Money talks ...
