Pro camera for a great price I’m a professional photographer and use the K20D for a wide range of photography including: products, landscapes, events, portraits and glamour. Event photography can challenge any camera because you are having to deal with constantly changing conditions. The settings you need quick access to are instantly available on dedicated buttons – so no hunting through the menus. Things like focusing modes, exposure compensation and shake reduction are all instantly to hand.Functions you need less often have their own fast-access menu through the FN button.So – for a professional who needs to get the camera in the right mode quickly, this is hard to beat.Image quality is superb. With over 14Mp to play with, you still have the option to crop to the detail without losing quality. You can produce huge prints so even posters pose no problem.The publicity boasts of the camera being sealed against the elements. It works. I recently took it to shoot at…

k20d a great bit of kit The 14.6 MB and good lens resolution enables this camera to often capture detail that is simply not visible with the naked eye. The sensitivity setting at 3200 iso also has revealed interior detail (Italian church frescos) using only low levels of natural light better than I could actually see! – and the grain can be adjusted.The large lcd screen and zoom by the rear dial enables quick review of images to check success or otherwise.I upgraded to this camera from a Milota 6.5 MB digital (no longer produced) which performed well and had features in common. At first I wondered if I had done the right thing. I have now used the K20D for architectural photography and 2 weeks of snapping on holiday and I have no doubts – this camera is robust, intuitive in its menue layouts with button short cuts (you do need to learn these) and full of functionality (this makes it semi-professional – there is a lot you can do).So far on enlargement of images I have seen no significant…

Best consumer DSLR around Let me open this review with a simple statement: the Pentax K20D is one of the best consumer digital SLRs by any manufacturer.The ‘headline feature’ is the weather sealing – competing products such as the must be covered with a plastic bag if (or, in the west of Scotland, _when_) it rains. The K20D, on the other hand, laughs in the face of inclement weather – though the sealing is not 100% complete without a weather sealed DA* lens. The build quality – for which Pentax have a well-deserved reputation – is incredible. The camera is built like a tank, and the weather-sealing process no doubt contributes to this (since tighter tolerances are required).If the camera has a weakness, it is perhaps the autofocus system. It is not the quickest (especially if it has to hunt), and indoors it can front-focus if given the opportunity. As a landscape photographer (with occasional forays…
