Hands-On with the Pentax K-r

Text and images by Melanie Beus

Announced on September 9, 2010, the K-r is the new entry-level DSLR, designed with the new user in mind. The design and features are aimed towards the person who is beginning with their first DSLR experience from a point and shoot style of camera. The K-r features many of the settings and modes familiar to the point and shoot photographer, as well as the basic, more manual types of settings found on DSLRs aimed at advanced users.
The K-r is essentially the replacement body for the K-x, but as both cameras are geared for the new DSLR user, to say that the K-r is intended to be an upgrade for current K-x users would not be entirely accurate. It is still the step between compact cameras and the more advanced DSLR body. Keeping this in mind, while some comparisons to the K-x will be made where there are obvious new features added, point-by-point comparisons between the two cameras will not be made.
