Pentax has never made a full-frame DSLR before. But this new camera, the K-1, looks like it was worth the wait.
As the sub-$1000, beginner DSLR camera's utility has been gradually been replaced by the rise of mirrorless cameras, the just-over $1000 DSLR market remains an area where camera companies are hoping to reign in more advanced and even professional users. With that in mind, let's take a look at Pentax's new K-3, a…
When you first see Pentax's new Q7 interchangeable-lens camera, you think your brain is playing tricks on you. How can it be so small? This must be a replica. But then you hold it in your hand and squee with delight because it's so maddeningly adorable.
Pentax is a classic imaging company. So you've got to let them have their own crack at an old-school style camera, right? In theory, sure—but the new Pentax MX-1 feel just a little late to the party.
Pentax has overhauled the excellent dust-proof, shock-proof, water-resistant Pentax K-5 from 2010 with a brand new autofocus system that works in darker conditions than ever before. The Pentax K-5 II might just be the best sticky situation camera out there.
Apparently, some people love the Pentax DSLRs because they can stand sand storms and heavy rain. I never imagined they could be subjected to this kind of hardcore testing. That's probably why US Army soldier Alex Jansen, now deployed in Afghanistan, loves them.
The promise of the new Pentax K-30: The toughest, fastest DSLR that won't break your bank. We just tried it out for the first time, and so far we're impressed. An $850 DSLR body shouldn't feel this good.
Camera makers have been cramming professional quality imaging into a budget (sub-$1000) packages for years. One of the disadvantages of these cameras is that they're not as resilient as their $3000 counterparts. The Pentax K-30 aims to change that.
It was just yesterday that leaked shots of the Pentax K-01 turned up, and now here's the full monty. It's not what you might call a head turner, but it's a pretty impressive addition to mirrorless cameras.
A collection of official-looking leaked photos made it on to the Pentax Forums today, purportedly unveiling the upcoming K-01 mirrorless camera. It looks to be available in multiple colors, features an HDR mode, and comes equipped with a 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens. There's been no official word from Pentax as to…
Point and shoots are generally seen as the wimpy hacks of the camera world, when compared to modern DSLRs and fancy new micro four thirds cameras. But their specs—like the 18x optical zoom on the Pentax Optio RZ18—are getting pretty impressive. It's like when Carrot Top grew mega-muscles and could all-of-a-sudden kick…

There's a lot to like about the new Pentax Q digital camera. It has a slick retro look, five interchangeable lenses and many features of a dSLR packed into a body that's the size of a point and shoot.
Some shocking news! Not only does dinosaur retailer Tower Records still exist (in Japan), they're responsible for this so-ugly-I-kind-of-like-it limited edition K-r DSLR. It looks like it was submerged in the boiling blood of the 1990s, but it's kinda charming!
Photographer Todd McLellan likes taking things apart and revealing the dizzying bits that comprise our gear. I'd have never guessed so many tiny pieces could be stripped away from the thing—and when arranged so precisely, they're quite gorgeous.
The Pentax Optio NB1000 is a 14.1 megapixel camera with 4x optical Zoom and 720p video recording. Oh, and it's front face is like a Lego board so you can attach anything you want on it.
Two more "fun" compact camera series has been announced today by Pentax, with my favorite being the Optio RZ10 (pictured above). For around $270, it has a 14MP sensor, and a 10x optical zoom.
