Limited Edition White Pentax K2000 DSLR Kit

No, we don't hope that white digital SLRs will be a big trend this year but as a one-off, specialty product, we kind of like this eye-catching, black-and-white cookie, limited-edition Pentax K2000. Both the K2000's body and two specialty lenses are being offered in white with black trim starting this month.

As a camera, Pentax K2000 is for advanced amateurs—not pros—and features a the 10.2MP CCD imaging sensor; 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot, wide-view LCD screen; and in-camera Shake Reduction. Like the camera, the two white Pentax lenses—not to be confused with Canon white professional lenses—are rather rinky-dink. There's a white Pentax DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL lens and a white Pentax DA L 50-200mm f/4-5.6 AL lens.

So while the technology in this special edition DLSR kit from Pentax may not impress, its daring disco styling definitely scores a few points on the Objects-of-Desire meter.
