Photokina - The Pentax Stand: The digital K-5 and K-r SLRs

Photokina is the world's biggest photographic and imaging trade show. It is being held in the Cologne Exhibition Centre, the Kölnmesse, from September 21st to the 26th, and a team from Wex Photographic have travelled to Germany to see what new and exciting products are being announced and on display at Photokina.

For the benefit of any of you that are interested in the Photokina happenings, but didn't want to travel to Germany, weren't able to go to Germany, or, like some of us, had to stay behind and work while your colleagues went to Germany, we will be updating you with all the latest goings-on via the WEX blog and Twitter. What's more, in an exciting new venture for WEX, we will be bringing you a visitor's-eye view of some of the stands and products in the form of WEX TV video clips!

So, keep coming back to the WEX blog and we'll update you with the latest information, news and videos as they come in.

The Pentax K-5 and K-r

The K-5 is the latest enthusiast SLR camera from Pentax and offers a wealth of features that keen photographers will appreciate in a camera, not least of all the 77 independent seals that offer dust and weather-proofing. The K-r sits at the mid-level of Pentax's digital SLR line up but still offers many features that you would expect from far more expensive cameras, including 6 fps shooting and sensitivity up to ISO 25,600.

In this video The Wex Photographic team at Photokina speak to Mark Cheetham at Pentax to find out more about the new K-5 weather-sealed SLR and their mid-level digital SLR, the new K-r. Mark explains the benefits and advantages of both cameras and what they have to offer photographers.
