Written on: 27/03/2006 by Lisa Gidley (1 review written)

Spec: Digital camera, 6,100,000 pixels, LCD display - TFT active matrix - 2.5 in - Color
Good: Relatively compact; beginner-friendly mix of manual and automatic features.
Bad: Poor high-ISO photo quality; sluggish autofocus in dim lighting.
Bottomline: The compact and inexpensive Pentax *ist DS2 performs well and blends automation and manual controls into a beginner-friendly dSLR. For those approaching the dSLR market with a bag of Pentax lenses--or no lenses at all--its worth considering.
