“Brains, meet beauty. The Pentax K-r has it all. It’s a powerful DSLR with advanced features like 12.4 Megapixels, HD video and a 3 inch LCD display. On the beauty side, taking photos has never looked this good. Plus, the K-r comes in basic black, classy white and PENTAX red. The PENTAX K-r competes with higher-end DSLRs and looks great doing it. That’s brilliantly colorful.”
