Compact Design, Bright Inspiration.
(Editor’s Note after the Jump)
03rd September 2014, Singapore – Experience photography in a new light with the PENTAX K-S1. Whether you’re new to photography or a skilled enthusiast, the K-S1 offers you the ability to take your imaging to the next level. The K-S1 incorporates new elements that optimize digital innovations, such as a compact, modern design and an inventive interface system.
Serious DSLR Features: Both new DSLR users and experienced shooters will appreciate the K-S1 advanced features, including:
- 20MP AA Filter-less CMOS Sensor
- Prime MII Processor
- Optical viewfinder with 100% FOV
- AA Filter Simulator Technology
- ISO 51,200
- Full HD at 30,25,24 fps
- Compatibility with PENTAX K-mount lenses
The K-S1 was made to grab on the go. It’s lightweight, easy to hold and intuitive to operate. LED illumination on the mode dial, on/off button and grip add to the experience by indicating modes and status, such as green for still shooting and red for movie shooting on the on/off button.
You can enhance your images with 10 different filter effects. On the outside, express your creativity with a choice of three standard body colors or two stylish body color collections.
The optional Flu Card lets you connect via Wi-Fi to share images instantly.
Looking at the Pentax K-S1, one cannot help but remember the Pentax K-01 that failed terribly in Singapore. Most photographers will relate the new Pentax K-S1 to its predecessor who died a prematured death. The NEW K-S1 seems to have missed out on certain design cues from the information that we have received so far. Looking at the current crop of DSLRs that are selling on the market now, the K-S1 could have done more with a swivel LCD screen, thicker hand grip and sadly, probably more new K – Mount lenses. Pentax seems to be (still) banging on its late success on offering users a multitude of colored bodies which does nothing except to match your clothes. And the new K-S1 now has LED lights that resembles those of a Transformer and the menu buttons seems to be more appropriate on a futuristic car dashboard than on a DSLR.
Seriously, we do not know what Pentax is thinking this time. And I shall comment no further until the review unit arrives here in Singapore in 3 weeks’ time. Stay tuned people.
