Pentax has unveiled two new digital SLRs which it’s aiming at novices and intermediates hunting for an intuitive all-rounder. They look virtually identical so we’ve just pictured the K100D here.

It’s the more multi-talented of the two, with a 6.1MP sensor and an armoury of user-friendly aids including auto focus, auto sensitivity and 'Shake Reduction' to steady your aim.

Elsewhere, it boasts a 2.5in colour LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity and the ability to eat SD cards, which now go up to 4GB (available for about £70 from  Expansys).

The beginner’s model, the K110D, is a duplicate of its brother but lacks the K100D’s anti-shake tech, which could result in some blurred shots if you’ve sunk a few vodkas.

Both shooters are expected to arrive in the UK by July, although there are no official prices yet. Check back for an update on this story and on Pentax’s site.
