The New Pentax K20D Live View function: The Pentax K20D digital camera sports a live view feature to display a potential image on the LCD monitor during shooting. The live view function helps photographers move their eyes away from the viewfinder during low and high angle shooting. Verifying the cameras shake reduction effect is a breeze while shooting thanks to this new feature.
Pentax K20D PRIME Imaging Engine: The K20D incorporates the Pentax Real Image Engine that was designed exclusively for Pentax digital SLR cameras. Faithful color reproduction is achieved by effectively controling the digital signals transmitted by the K20D CMOS image sensor. The K20D imaging engine also includes DDR2 memory for speedy image processing.
Pentax Custom Image function: The K20D sports a new custom image function that selects one of six modes in order to adjust image processing to the photographers preference automatically. Tone, saturation, contrast, and sharpness are all instantly manageable if desired and bright, portrait, landscape, vibrant, and black and white image modes are also available. A radar like display on the LCD panel makes tuning simple and the digital preview option allows photographers to see the effects of their tuning instantly.
Pentax Dust Removal System: The K20D includes a dust removal system to prevent dust from blocking the CMOS image sensor. A super protect coating has been applied to the image sensor surface via vapor deposition. The fluorine compound prevents dust from sticking and when it is shaken off the image sensor it falls onto an adhesive strip located in the bottom of the unit so that it cannot return to the image sensor. This system also features a dust alert function which shows you precicely where dust may be sticking to the sensors surface.
Continuous shooting: The K20D offers a continuous shooting mode that allows the photographer to take up to 38 Jpeg images in succession at a maximum speed of approximately three images (frames) per second. In high speed burst mode the photographer can capture up to 115 images at a speed of approximately 21 images per second. Size is fixed at 1.6 megapixels per image while taking photographs in burst mode.
Improved Rechargeable Batteries: The K20D employs large capacity Lithium ion rechargeable batteries that capture approx 740 photos when fully charged. A new energy saving design resulted in a major improvement over the K10D model.
