Pentax K100D Super review

Very simply, the flexibility, quality, and price of this system is without parallel. I have shot a number of challenging automotive racing events during challenging lightening conditions and this camera has always performed well, even in using 20 year old $20 glass purchased from eBay. Portraits are warm. SR is outstanding. ISO 1600 which I use frequently still looks brilliant. I have toted this camera around for Rally car racing events and in all kind of harsh conditions without any issue. The camera feels well built and has had flawless operation since purchased last year. I also considered the Nikon D70 and D40. The flexibility of using old lenses coupled with the SR made this a pretty easy choice. Could not be happier.


For indoor pictures, I use the custom white balance setting when shooting JPG. This custom setting works pretty much in all indoor conditions brilliantly though.
