The PENTAX K-01 offers a full array of advanced functions
(PRWEB) February 05, 2012
Designed by Marc Newson, one of the world’s most acclaimed and influential contemporary designers. The PENTAX K-01 offers a full array of advanced functions, including a 16 megapixel CMOS image sensor with low image noise and multiple aspect ratios, high-speed burst shooting, an extra-wide sensitivity range and Full HD video recording, in a camera body with remarkable form and function.
The Pentax K-01 is built around a 16MP APS-C sensor, the camera accepts a wide array of PENTAX interchangeable K-mount lenses* including those produced for film-format SLR cameras. This lens compatibility makes it rather easy to find the most suitable lens for a particular subject or scene and create the desired visual effect and perspective with great ease.
The Pentax K-01 features sensor-shift image stabilization, a 920k dot rear LCD and can shoot at up to 6 frames per second. The Full HD video-recording function on the Pentax K-01 captures high-quality movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels). With the H.264 recording format, it offers a choice of frame rate (30, 25 or 24 frames per second) to accommodate user-specific applications. The PENTAX K-01 also comes with an HDMI type C terminal, which allows you to simultaneously output both Full HD movie clips and stereo sound, as well as an external microphone input terminal.
Marc Newson’s original design scheme is evident in all elements of the K-01, including the product logo, the camera strap (included) and even the start-up screen that comes on when the K-01’s power is turned on.
