A good-all round, entry-level contender with enough advanced features to keep enthusiasts happy too - especially if they have brand loyalty to Pentax and can make use of their existing stock of lenses. The K100D Super represents value for money par excellence!

Pentax K100D Review - PhotographyBlog

Nov 04, 2007 | Category: Pentax K100D

Having the arrogance to call your camera ’Super’ places it justifiably in the firing line for a critical kicking. But having used the camera for more than six weeks, that thought has never entered my head until now. That’s because the Pentax K100D Super ticks very nearly all of the boxes for those wanting an easy to use DSLR that delivers images you’ll want to keep straight out of the camera; and with the minimum of user input and effort to boot. That said, there is enough room to grow built in for those of us who do want to do more than simply point and shoot, and first time DSLR users will have fun experimenting.

Pentax K100D Review - PopularPhotography

Oct 04, 2007 | Category: Pentax K100D

While we’ve criticized the K100D in the past for relegating most controls to the menus, we’ve accepted that such cameras aren’t meant for control freaks like us.

With the Pentax K100D set to Program, it’s a simple pleasure to use - a point-and-shoot with great viewing. The basic controls are accessed easily enough using the function button, and the autofocus finds the subject readily, with little fuss.

Pentax K100D Review - Steves Digicams

Sep 24, 2007 | Category: Pentax K100D

This lightweight, durable camera was fun to use. While the Pentax K100D Super’s 6-megapixel resolution lags behind that of some entry-level models by competing manufacturers, the addition of Shake Reduction (SR) and Dust Removal to a set of mature and useful camera features makes for an attractive consumer dSLR.

With the street price hovering around $599 (US) with a 18-55mm zoom lens, the K100D Super is a great value. With a price point that overlaps into consumer digicam territory, the K100D Super offers a compelling choice to point-n-shoot upgraders. Further more, users of Pentax film SLR’s will be tempted to make the jump to digital, with their inventory of K-mount lenses being compatible with the K100D Super AND its integral Shake Reduction feature.

Pentax K100D Review - CNET

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Pentax K100D

Pentax K100D does a wonderful job of balancing the needs of amateur and experienced photographers. It doesn’t have some of the more fancy features, such as white-balance bracketing or dynamic range optimization, that you’ll find on more expensive cameras, such as the Canon Rebel XT or the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K, but for its price, the K-100D is a steal.

If you already own Pentax lenses, this camera is a no-brainer. On the other hand, if you’re really looking to save money, and shake reduction doesn’t float your boat (though it probably should), then you can always step down to Pentax K110D, which is the same camera without the shake-reduction feature.
