Pentax IST D Digital SLR Camera Body {6.1 M/P} Description


The Pentax *ist D, housed in the world's smallest, lightest SLR body, comes equipped with an array of advanced functions and user-friendly features, including: a large sized CCD with an impressive 6.1 effective megapixels; a responsive SAFOX VIII autofocus system with 11-point AF sensor; a sophisticated 16-segment multi-pattern metering system; a bright viewfinder with a newly developed compact glass pentaprism; an innovative Hyper operating system; 22 user-adjustable custom functions; and compatibility with existing PENTAX 35mm-format interchangeable lenses and accessories.


Powered by four AA-sized batteries or two CR-V3 batteries, the optional D-BG1 battery grip prolongs the *ist D's operation time. It can be mounted onto the bottom of the *ist D without removing the battery stored inside the camera, so the battery life is extended considerably. It also comes equipped with a vertical-position shutter release button, a preview lever, Tv/Av dials and an AE lock button. The optional O-CC10 camera case stores an *ist D camera body set with a standard zoom lens and features an inside pocket to hold a lens cap and the optional remote controller.
