Secaucus, N.J. — The onslaught of 10-megapixel digital SLRs continues as Samsung threw its hat into the ring with the new GX-10.

The model borrows many of the features of the recently announced Pentax K10D, including its dust reduction system, weather-resistant housing and CCD-shifting image stabilization.

Samsung and Pentax partnered last year to develop digital SLRs and other imaging technologies.

The GX-10 joins Samsung’s existing d-SLRs (the GX-1 and GX-2) on the market when it ships next month. Pricing was not announced.

It features a one-touch RAW shooting button, a 210,000, 2.5-inch LCD screen, 3 fps shooting to an unlimited number of JPEGs or up to nine RAW images.


Schneider optics will launch five new D-Xenon lenses for Samsung’s GX-series of d-SLRs. The lenses will include a 10~17mm, F3.5-4.5 fish-eye zoom, a 12~24mm, F4 ultra-wide zoom, a 16~45mm, F4 wide zoom, a 35mm, F2 fixed focus and a100mm, F2.8 macro lens. Prices were not announced.

Samsung’s SLRs also work with Pentax’s KAF2, KAF and KA mount lenses.
