Pentax today presented a new compact digital SLR camera, the *ist DS2. This new *ist DS model features a 6.1 megapixel sensor along with a 2.5-inch color LCD display and a high-magnification glass pentaprism viewfinder for a large, clear view at every stage of digital photography from shooting to playback to editing. With its enhanced operability and maneuverability, the new *ist DS2 assures high-quality digital SLR photography to photographers of all levels.

The *istDS2 is designed extremely compact and lightweight — measuring only 125mm (4.9″ wide, 92.5mm (3.6″ high and 67mm (2.6″ thick and weighing a mere 505 grams (17.8 oz.) without batteries and an SD memory card.

It will become available in September for under $800 for the body alone.
