Pentax K-r colour range brightens up your day

Pentax, never one to shy away from wacky design mods for its cameras, has unleashed a colourful assortment of new versions of its Pentax K-r DSL.

The 10 "unique" designs look like the cameras of your acid-trips, and includes the Tower Records inspired Rainbow models, which basically looks like your regular K-r, after a toddler has gone medieval on it with some fluorescent marker pens.

The 12.4 effective megapixel K-r is Pentax’s follow-up digital SLR to the entry level K-x, a sound, good value starter option. Incorporating a standard APS-C sized sensor it sits just below the more fully featured K-7 and K-5 digital SLRs in Pentax’s camera line up.

The colourful cams are available to pre-order in Japan now, for about ¥90,000 (about £650). They are out on 16 May, with the Rainbow coming a couple of months later on 22 July.
