The Pentax K200D is a 10.2 megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera, announced on January 24, 2008, along with the higher-end K20D.[2] It was discontinued in December 2008, giving it the distinction of being one of the shortest-lived DSLR cameras.[3]

The K200D is the successor to the well-reviewed K100D, K110D, and K100D Super 6-megapixel DSLRs from Pentax. The K200D adopts several of the features of the more advanced K10D, namely its 10.2 megapixel CCD sensor and weather-sealed body.

The MSRP of the Pentax K200D is $620 for the body only, or $699 with an updated 18-55mm II f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.

Features[edit]

Two Pentax K200D cameras with Sigma 18-250mm lenses. The camera body came in multiple colours, including grey.

The Pentax K200D has 60 seals for weather/dust resistance. It uses non-proprietary AA batteries like previous Pentax entry-level offerings.

The K200D's lens mount is the Pentax K-mount; so it is compatible with lenses dating as far back as 1973 without the use of adaptors.

The K200D's on-board flash can be used to wirelessly control Pentax or compatible flashes as a Master (The on board flash fires during the capture), or as a Controller (The on board flash does not fire during the capture). This supports P-TTL, but can also be used to fire the external flashes in Auto or Manual Mode.

The K200D utilizes a 2.7" LCD screen with a total pixel count of 230,000.
