When the Pentax *ist DL came into the office, the first problem we encountered was exactly how we were going to talk about it. How does one pronounce *ist DL? Browsing the Internet revealed everything from "star-ist-dee-ell" to "eye-ess-tee". We here a… Read Full Review

Pentax is joining in with the digital reflex cameras for some time now, relatively quietly. The brand is aiming at the lower segment and Pentax is very strong here. Before it was with the analogue cameras, and now the same thing happens with the digita… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2006 by Lisa Gidley (1 review written)

Spec: Digital camera, 6,100,000 pixels, LCD display - TFT active matrix - 2.5 in - Color
Good: Svelte and affordable; logical interface; solid image quality.
Bad: Autofocus sometimes flustered by difficult scenes; auto white-balance setting mediocre for outdoor shadows or artificial light.
Bottomline: A great value per ounce, the Pentax *ist DL is a logical choice for budget-minded enthusiasts looking to upgrade to a digital SLR, but its not ideal for shooting action or running on full auto.
