A few weeks back, I posted my first field test for the Pentax KP, Ricoh's compact DSLR alternative to the mirrorless camera.

A water shortage in the already-dry region has been compounded by a growing population, agricultural uses, tourism, and industry that are diverts almost 90 percent of the Jordan River that normally flowed into the Dead Sea.
