MANILA — Pentax Philippines has officially released the special local edition of its K-50 weatherproof DSLR camera sporting the bright colors of the country’s flag.
Dubbed “Filipino Pride,” the Philippine edition of the company’s mid-range camera is uniquely colored in a combination of blue, red, yellow and white.
Other than the colors, though, the camera is no different from the regular K-50. But that is certainly not a bad thing in terms of specs.
The camera still boasts a stabilized 16 MP CMOS sensor and weather resistant and dust-proof body — perfect for the current unpredictability of the country’s weather.
It still features the high-speed continuous shooting at around six frames per second, high-sensitivity shooting can still reach ISO 51200, and its auto-focus can “accurately” capture moving objects.
It also can record full HD (1080p) and battery problems can easily be resolved using regular AA-size batteries.
In terms of price, both the regular edition and the special Philippine edition start at P32,990 and come with a 18-55 lens.
