The good: In-camera optical image stabilization; relatively compact; great mix of auto and manual features.
The bad: Auto white balance is warm in tungsten light; no raw-plus-JPEG mode; only 6 megapixels.
The bottom line: With its built-in image stabilization and comfy mix of manual and automatic features, the Pentax K100D is one of the best dSLR bargains on the market.

Summary: Every camera has certain characteristics that a good photographer learns and adjusts/compensates for. Depending on your style of photography this camera can easily be adjusted to meet your particular needs. The person that made the statement that the pictures are too dark and blurred has not bothered to learn how to properly use this camera or is just an inexperienced photographer. I’ve been using Pentax cameras for nearly 30 years and I consider this a robust well built product especially compared to some it more expensive competition. I’ve owned my K110 for almost a year and its performed flawlessly under all types of conditions from below freezing temperatures to humid 100-degree weather.
The K110 produces excellent color, sharpness and has very low noise levels. I’ve used this camera in my studio to take portraits; I’ve also taken action shots at baseball games and horse shows, and landscapes all with superb results. To achieve the full potential of this camera or any other DSLR you need to move beyond the automatic settings. Take the time to learn how to use all the features of this camera and you will produce excellent pictures.

Summary: I bought this for the price,I paid $288 w/lens and the camera is great. when you use the old lenses you set the f stop and it will set the proper sutter speed. I had no problems with it. I like the mirror lockup function w/the optional remote control.

Pros: Better name and if it is anything like the *ist DS, it's a winner (I've got one)
Cons: unknown 'cause I don't own it.

Summary: I have the IST DL and K110D.
Compared to the IST DL, I must say the K110d is a cheap camera with very dark images requiring long shutter speeds to yield a bright image and that leads to motion blur (ggood luck trying to capture anythin moving). the images are full of grain and noise at ISO200 and the images are over sharp with lots of clipping and blue fringe.
DONT BUY THIS CAMERA!!Updated

- Manufacturer: Pentax
- Part number: 19028
- Description: Who says a starter digital SLR has to be stripped? Not Pentax. The vast array of features packed into the affordable Pentax K110D is impressive. This including a fast, high-precision 11-point auto focus (9 cross-type sensors) with SAFOX VIII and superimposed AF-point display. Add to this a 6.1 megapixel APS-C size CCD, sensitivity equivalent to ISO 200 to 3200, 2.8 frames per second capture rate for action photography, and a bright, high-precision Penta mirror viewfinder with 0.85X magnification. The sleek, compact body design with a high-rigidity stainless-steel chassis offers convenient SD media Card storage and High Speed USB 2.0 data transfer and operates on AA batteries, 2CR-V3 lithium batteries, or optional AC adapter.
