K20D, K200D and D60 Specs!
Jan 21, 2008

I like to change URL numbers to discover hidden spec sheets. Last year I uncovered the Olympus E410 and E510 through this site. This year, here's some specs for the K20D, K200D as well as the Nikon D60.

Get it while it's hot ... add "& lang = en" to the end of the URL, without the quotation marks or spaces to get the spec sheet in english:

K20D: http://lets go ditigal.org/printspecs.php?sid=1764
K200D: http://lets go ditigal.org/printspecs.php?sid=1763
Nikon D60: http://www.lets go digital.org/printspecs.php?sid=1775

In case this stuff goes offline, here's a copy and paste of the more important stuff:

K20D:
Resolution 15.10 Mpixel
Maximum resolution 4672x3120
Minimum resolution 1824x1216
Sensor size 23.4x15.6mm
Sensor type CMOS
ISO ratings auto, 100 - 6400
Sequence (fps) 3
Video function No
LCD size 2.7-inch
LCD resolution (pixels) 230,000
Weight 715g.
Sizes (mm) 141.5x101x70

K200D
Resolution 10.75 Mpixel
Maximum resolution 3872x2592
Minimum resolution 2400x1600
Sensor size 23.5x15.7mm
Sensor type CCD
ISO ratings aut0, 100-1600
Minimum shutter (sec) Bulb+30
Maximum shutter (sec) 1/4000

LCD size 2.7-inch
LCD resolution (pixels) 230,000

Nice find.....

Maybe they're just cursory specs?...they don't seem to be complete.

the K20D is 1764
the K200D is 1763
the D60 is 1775

K20D specs look impressive. 15 mpixels is pretty high for a crop sensor. i wonder how that will turn out at 6400?

i guess the D60 is a new midrange small camera, i wonder if it has the in body focus motor?

Holy cow! Nice work, Pedro.

Not as much info as we are all hoping for, but still very, very impressive! I was especially interested to see that the K20D is 80g lighter than the K10D... I wonder how they dropped the weight that much without affecting the weather sealing?

The weight of the K10D is about 710 grams without the battery.

Without knowing whether the listing here for K20D is with or without we can't be sure but they are probably about the same weight.

Also, Pedro, could you please recheck the exact listings of those URLs. I can't get them to work as listed.

Thanks...and thanks for the lead.

Ah, yes. Good point. I usually see camera weight quoted with batteries, but you're right, it's probably without here!

URLs. I can't get them to work as listed.

He mis-spelled letsgodigital.org as letsgoditigal.org in his post... just swap the g and t and they'll work

doh ...

The rest of the stuff posted is lukewarm. There's an Olympus SP 570 UZ that pushes the limit even more for ultrazooms, and a bunch of compact Nikons and Olys.

15MP on APS-C sensor - kind of scary specs noisewise, eh?
With the massive bump in MP I had hoped, we would see a 1.25 crop sensor.

On the other hand, they must be up to something, if they feel confident with 6400.

Interesting times,

Maybe it just doesn't show on my browser (safari) but I don't see anything on those sites that even says this is a pentax camera, let alone the 20D/200D. Are we just assuming this based on the specs? Couldn't it be from another camera?

Hey, I'm sure you were pretty excited to get it posted. Great work!!!

compact Nikons and Olys.

Well, I bought my K10D to get away from my Olympus ultra-zoom, with its horrible shutter lag and execrable xD cards, so I'll pass on that one

How do they make 18X zoom lenses on inexpensive cameras??? Is it easier to make the optics when they're smaller diameter? The Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens costs about $450 just for the lens, and it is a stop slower than the ultrazoom cameras, which are usually 2.8 at the short end. So I don't get how they do it. Impressive, but I don't much like the end products usually.

Look in the title bar of the browser. It clearly indicates "Pentax K200D" or "Pentax K20D".

This is incorrect as I've seen both models in person. The sensor for the K20D is false, but I can't reveal my sources, though. I can, however, say that both models will impress and put Canon and Nikon on notice that Pentax is making a strong comeback in the DSLR market.

Can someone say baby steps... i'm not seeing any definative improvements inthe specs... sure we might get better IQ especially if they give us ISO6400 but did we need 15mp? where is the faster AF, faster burst speed, better metering and extra features? now i know this is just a small list of specs and it likely doesn't have everything and i'll have to wait till thursday to find out the rest... i will reluctantly upgrade if that 15mp (14.5mp) is equal or better in IQ

Hmmm... very mysterious Presumably, you're not under NDA yourself, because then you couldn't even say that much. Can you say anything more?

The resolution quoted (15.1 MP) is for total pixels.

But efective pixels are 14.6MP (4672x3120). This number has been floating around for quite some time.

But anyway, I'm just the messenger.

Cheers.

Well, you answered your own questions. All those features would not get listed in a brief spec sheet like this one.

Hmm...just 3 fps?
In reply to kukitos, Jan 21, 2008

It'll be bad for K20D to be so out of 40D and 300D (and A700?) league when it comes to burst speed. 3 fps nowadays is entry level, think Rebel or D40 territory.

Agree but have you taken note of the N*kon D300 fps rate when the battery grip is attached ?

Where's the LCD resolution competing with the A700 (and D300)? No 800,000 to 900,000 pixels?

Can't blame the measuring technique because the K10/K20 screen is nearly 1/4 less as the measurement is actually done the same way.

Can't blame Nikon higher cost, because you're mostly paying for Nikon name - and the A700 is comparable in price.

These screens were last year's technology. The K20D having "better" live view than the D300 is great, and is the type of innovation that gets people to Pentax instead of Nikon - as long as Samsung gives them a comparable performance LCD which they could have if so desired.

As Samsung is a leader in LCD's, you'd think this was a no-brainer to aquire approx 900,000 pixels (unless the screen is only 2.7" instead of 3" - then maybe 800,000) for the K20D.
