Based on the Pentax K100D lens-interchangeable digital SLR camera, the new model features a 23.5mm X 15.7mm 6.1-megapixel (effective) CCD image sensor plus the acclaimed Shake Reduction (SR) system and Dust Removal (DR) system as the K10D. The new model also supports ISO sensitivity up to 3200, the highest automatic setting in its class - based on data including the subject's brightness level and the focal length of the lens. Users can pre-program a desired sensitivity level from ISO 200 to ISO 3200. Novice users can select Auto Picture mode, which automatically and instantly selects one of five picture modes (including Portrait, Landscape and Macro) to create the most appropriate visual effect for a given subject. Since the camera sets all primary parameters (including shutter speed, aperture, white balance, saturation, contrast and sharpness) the photographer can concentrate on picture composition.
