This top-of-the-line, weather-resistant D-SLR has hd video and a low price
New PRIME II Imaging Engine
The new high-speed, high-performance PRIME II imaging engine works with the revamped 14.6-megapixel CMOS sensor to produce better image quality and quicker operation, and enable HD video and Face Recognition AF in Live View mode.
Rugged, Compact Body
The smallest D-SLR in its category, the K-7 is 7% smaller
than the K20D, but retains that camera’s excellent dust- and weather-resistance. The magnesium-alloy K-7 can be used in temperatures down to 14° F (-10° C).
New 3.0-Inch, 921K-Dot LCD With Live View
The K-7’s LCD monitor is bigger and higher-res than the K20D’s, great for using the new Live View and video capabilities. Live View features contrast AF and Face Recognition AF (which automatically finds and focuses on a subject’s face). Live View also can be used for continuous shooting.
Sensor-Shift Shake And Dust Reduction
The K20D’s excellent sensor-shift shake-reduction and dust-reduction systems have been improved in the K-7. The SR system now compensates for rotational sensor movement, as well as up/down and left/right motion, while the DR system features a piezoceramic vibration action. Because it’s in the camera body, shake reduction works with any lens you put on the camera (and the K-7 will accept every Pentax lens ever made).
100 Percent Field-Of-View Viewfinder
The optical viewfinder on many cameras doesn’t show you exactly what you’re getting. If you’re exacting with your compositions, a 100% field-of-view viewfinder is a huge plus.
Dedicated RAW Button
If you like the flexibility of RAW, but sometimes need the convenience of a preprocessed JPEG, this button lets you quickly switch between these formats on the fly, without digging through menus to find the setting.

The body also features the same PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction technology found on more advanced K series digital SLRs. PENTAX Shake Reduction is compatible with more than 25 million PENTAX lenses to deliver sharp images even when handheld at slower shutter speeds. The K2000 also features the powerful PENTAX-developed Auto Picture Mode, which selects from Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Action, and Night Portrait modes to tailor the camera settings for any photographic situation. The camera also has a comprehensive Dust Removal system to help keep images spotless.
