The Pentax K10D SLR Digital Camera combines 10.2 effective megapixels of image resolution with an array of advanced technologies, including a Shake Reduction (SR) system to minimize the adverse effects of camera shake, and a high-performance imaging engine - Pentax Real IMage Engine (PRIME) - designed exclusively for Pentax digital SLR cameras to produce well-balanced, true-to-life images. Pentax also incorporated a high performance 22 bit A/D converter to quickly transfer images with accurate color tones and richer gradation from the CCD to the imaging engine. The Dust Removal (DR) system incorporating Pentax-original Special Protect (SP) coating helps keep the CCD surface dust-free, and adds a shift mechanism to shake dust off the CCD. Furthermore, the dependable dust-proof, water-resistant body construction of the K10D features 72 seals throughout the camera to allow photographers to continue shooting even in dusty or rainy environments. All combined, the K10D delivers exceptionally high image quality and responds brilliantly to the exacting demands of advanced photographers and keen amateurs alike.
