Pentax K500

The Pentax-original Auto Picture mode automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode for each scene or subject.  Since the Pentax K500 sets all important camera settings - such as shutter speed, aperture, white balance, saturation, contrast and sharpness - the photographer can concentrate on image composition. The Pentax K500 also offers 19 Scene modes, including Night Scene Portrait, Pet and Backlight Silhouette, to simplify the photographing of difficult scenes or subjects, which can be challenging for entry level digital SLR photographers.

In addition to the standard rechargeable lithium-ion battery capable of capturing approximately 480 images with a single recharge, the Pentax K500 can also be powered by four AA-size batteries with the use of the optional D-BH109 AA Battery Holder. Since AA-size batteries can be easily obtained almost anywhere around the world, there's no worry about battery shortages, even when travelling. The Pentax K500 + 18-55 mm DAL lens is available for a retail price of £ 449.99.
