The company Ricoh, owner of the brand Pentax, announced the release of SLR Pentax K-S1.
In this news TX overshadowed, because look at these toxic colors! You can choose from 12 color options. But we have already seen in other products Pentax. Really striking appearance provide green LED LED-lamps on the perimeter of the shutter button and battery grip. In addition to imitation timer when shooting with a delay (lamp pulse with a certain intensity in this mode), they do not carry any practical use. But at night you will attract the attention of others more than the owners of sports cars.
As I see it, these “bells and whistles” DSLRs most appreciate just progressive residents of Tokyo and other big cities in Japan. In our own adventures with the edges of the colored lights at night can result in a fatal outcome (in the sense that some of the other guys may also want such a toy without your approval).
Under the “hood” Pentax K-S1 has a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor APS-C size without smoothing filter. This is the filter can simulate the menu with varying degrees of intensity, as is done in the Pentax K-3 (see the review of the link ). ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 51,200 units.
Built-in 3-axis matrix image stabilization allows you to shoot at a slow shutter speeds even with fixes and third-party lenses via adapters. Processor Prime MII provides continuous shooting speed 5.4 frames per second. The fastest shutter speed – 1/6000 seconds. AF system 11 point.
Viewfinder covers 100% of the area of the frame with an increase 0.95h, which is characteristic only for the top-end DSLR. 3-inch display immovable and non-touch with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels (921k). Video recording is limited to 1080 / 30p.
