White K2000 DSLR camera
PENTAX imaging has announced a limited edition white version of the K2000 camera with a double zoom kit. The camera continues to use a 10.2 megapixel sensor and a 2.7-inch wide-view LCD monitor, and is still tailored towards newcomers: a custom image mode containing six preset options and a full auto picture mode potentially take full control of the scene rather than pushing the user into manual control. Other touches include ten different scene modes, a help button, and a dust alert function for the sensor.
For the limited edition PENTAX includes an smc 50-200mm F4-5.6 AL lens and smc 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 Al lens, both of which come in the same white as the camera body. Pricing isn't available for the camera, though the existing model sells for $800; the white version appears in February.
