Pentax unveils 15 new color options for K-30 DSLR

There’s a common element most DSLRs share, aside from the obvious: their no-nonsense professional black coloring, which is appealing to some users, but lackluster to those who enjoy a little more visual variety amongst their photography equipment. That’s where the new K-30 DSLRs Pentax is rolling out comes in. Starting today, consumers can get this durable shooter in a variety of shiny and matte color options.

The Pentax K-30 is now available in nine new colors for a total of 15 color options overall, with both “silky finish” matte and “shiny crystal” options comprised of: Crystal Black, Crystal Bordeaux, Crystal Green, Crystal Red, Crystal
Silver, Crystal Yellow, Crystal Orange, Silky Blue, Silky Bordeaux, Silky Green, Silky Red, Silky Silver, Silky White, Silky Yellow and Silky Orange.

The K-30 is a DSLR designed to withstand rugged and somewhat harsh environments, offering a combination of a lightweight body and durability features, including weather, dust, and cold resistance. The DSLRs can be pre-ordered now from Pentax, with no word on when they start shipping. The price comes in at $799.99, and includes a PENTAX DA 18 – 55mm lens.
Pentax’s Senior Marketing Manager John Carlson said: “The K-30 already offers great features, such as dust and weather sealing, the 100% field of view viewfinder and dual control dials that are only found in more expensive cameras. By adding additional color choices, the K-30 now appeals to an even wider array of customers who are looking for exciting, personalized options in their digital camera.”
