  • The K20D has a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a Live View mode. The K200D reviewed here has a regular 10-megapixel CCD and no Live View. Despite that, the K200D is a very accomplished little camera, which shares many of the features of its bigger brother...

  • With the K200D, you get ease of use and good performance. But it’s rather bulky and we think it offers far more features than most family members would want or need. If you’re thinking of moving up from a compact, then give the K200D good cons...

  • Abstract:  Pentaxs K200D is relatively bulky and heavy for an entry-level DSLR, but the dust- and splash-proof body is surprisingly robust. The use of four AA batteries contributes to this bulk, but battery life is excellent at 1,100 shots. This is partly do...

  • Abstract:  When we reviewed the Pentax K100D Super we were impressed with the built-in anti-shake and anti-dust features, not to mention the unbelievably low price. However, not upping the pixel count meant plumping for the bigger, pricier K10D if you wanted more...

  • Optical image stabilisation; compatible with most Pentax lenses
  • Fiddly controls; no live view; heavy
  • The Pentax K200D has a couple of flourishes -- like optical image stabilisation -- but lacks entry-level features such as live view and face detection. Its chunkier than wed like with such a basic model, so if youre after an entry-level model there...
