Pentax K20d Digital Camera Gets the Titanium Treatment
May 5th, 2009
Sure, digital cameras are a dime a dozen these days. With even some of the most expensive cameras made out of cheap plastic and aluminum, it’s nice to finally see a camera that at least LOOKS as substantial as its price.
The Pentax K20D is already one of the most highly rated dSLR cameras out there, but this special version features titanium-finish body pieces that gives it looks that match the level of the underlying technology. In addition to the metal accented camera body, the titanium kit includes a matching metal-wrapped battery grip when you need some extra juice. The K20D features a 14.6-megapixel CMOS image sensor, a 2.7-inch live view LCD, image stabilization and a dust-proof, water-resistant case design.
While Pentax sells its regular K20D digicam for about $700 (USD), the limited-edition K20D titanium version sells for nearly double that price. There are no plans to sell the titanium edition outside of Japan, but that’s never stopped the guys at Gizmine before. They’ve gotten their hands on a few of these rarities for sale worldwide – so long as you’re ready to spend $1199 (USD) on one. Only 1,000 of the K20D Titanium edition are being produced, so if you want one, you better get your order in now.
