Pentax K-m review
Pentax has clearly opted for the latter approach with regards to differentiating the K-m from the six-month-old K200D. The latter camera, while debuting at a price point towards the high end of the entry-level market, was acclaimed for featuring facets of its more advanced sibling. It, of course, follows that the K-m also features said facets, owing to the fact that it’s essentially the same camera – but, of course, over £150 cheaper than the K200D was at launch. What you also have to consider is that the K-m is, in essence, more than an entry-level DSLR. The slight quirks with underexposure, and in turn white balance, mean that shooting Raw is certainly preferable, and as such an understanding of image-editing software needed.
But this is what the K-m offers – an eminently affordable DSLR that produces good results if you’re willing to put a bit of effort into your shots, a process which will in turn improve your photography.
