Pentax K-r limited edition gets bizarre robot theme makeover

Pentax has outed another in the company's range of unusually colored DSLRs, this time a limited edition of 100 rainbow K-r cameras. Supposedly the result of customer demand, on the inside it's the same 12.4-megapixel shooter previously offered in white, black and red, complete with a 3-inch 920k dot LCD display, 6fps shooting for up to 25 frames, in-camera HDR editing and a 100 – 25600 ISO range, but on the outside it's an eye-catching (if not eye-watering) array of colors and a matching lens.

Pentax's other new cameras of the day are the point-and-shoot Optio RS1000 and Optio RZ10, the former offering gobfuls of customization thanks to eleven included 3M adhesive vinyl skins (and an app to help you create more) along with its 14-megapixel sensor and 4x optical zoom, while the RZ10 packs 14-megapixels as well but scales up to a 10x optical zoom.  Both are capable of recording 720p HD video.

40MP Pentax 645D camera gets video demo, one step closer to release

Pentax's huge medium-format 645D digital camera has had a public outing in Toronto this past weekend, demonstrating its updated Kodak 44 x 33 mm sensor - that has climbed from 30- to 40-mexapixels since we first saw the concept back in early 2009 - and general all-round awesomeness.  Shooting a single frame per second, the Pentax 645D is apparently intended for scenery and other still-life photography, rather than anything faster moving.  Scolirk grabbed some hands-on time and a demo video you can see after the cut.

Pentax Optio H90 gets reviewed: surprisingly good budget camera

Pentax Optio H90 gets reviewed: surprisingly good budget camera

Of Pentax's most recent range of point-and-shoots, the Optio H90 particularly caught our eye with its vaguely 70s stylings.  Over at PhotographyBLOG they've been putting the budget shooter through its paces, and it turns out to be surprisingly capable.  Not only are its 12-megapixel stills decent, it has a broader focal range than similarly-priced rivals and can also record HD video.
