Pentax K7D Specs Leak
A forum leak today may have provided details of the new K series camera Pentax plans to launch later this week. Using an claimed promo graphic as support, the tip supports the notion of a K7D launch and maintains that the camera will have the 14.6-megapixel resolution of the K20D but a new PRIME II imaging engine and the company's first-ever support for HD video recording in an SLR. A viewfinder with 100 percent coverage is also billed as new.
The camera would otherwise have a 3-inch, 920,000-pixel preview LCD with live view as well as built-in image stabilization, dust removal, and resistance against both dust and water. Pentax hasn't confirmed any of the details but should make an official announcement on May 20th.
