Photorumors has a few pictures and a complete list of specs for Pentax's K-X DSLR, which they claim is going to set to launch tomorrow. Looks like it'll pack a 12.4MP CMOS sensor, 720p video and 2.7-inch LCD.
The key features:
• High resolution 12.4 megapixel CMOS image sensor features sensor-shift Shake Reduction for stabilized image and video capture up to 4 stops max.It looks pretty nice, if all this is true (and it certainly looks realistic), but we'll have to wait until tomorrow to get confirmation and most importantly, price.
