PENTAX K-1 Upgrade Service - Limited Offer

Customize your K-1 to suit you preferences The K-1 provides a wide range of customization settings to optimize the ease and comfort of camera operations. These settings have been designed to expand the functions of the USER Mode and the Fx function buttons, improve accessibility to desired functions on the control panel, and prevent accidental operational errors. A USER Mode Five different combinations of the most frequently used functions can be assigned to this mode to handle specific subjects or creative intentions. C Lock button In order to prevent accidental setting changes, the K-1 provides a lock button to temporarily inactivate control buttons and dials. It offers you a choice of two lock functions: Type 1 to prevent unintended exposure setting changes; and Type 2 to prevent operational setting changes.

RAW 2 Fx2 button Another function from seven options can be assigned default: Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera dustproof, weather-resistant construction Constructed of sturdy yet lightweight magnesium alloy with the inclusion of 87 sealing parts in the body, the K-1 also boasts a dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant construction. This monitor has reached two difficult goals that conventional monitors have failed to attain: You can even tilt it up to a nearly degree angle for low-angle and waist-level photography. The D even lists at around the same price as the much smaller-sensored Canon models, these days. Perhaps the Pentax K-1's nearest rivals in terms of cost and resolution are to be found in Sony's Alpha A7 series, but these mirrorless cameras all lack the K-1's optical viewfinder.

Chances are that you've already made your mind up whether or not you're willing to live with an electronic viewfinder as in those cameras. If you don't need their size advantage, there's a lot to be said for the lag-free feeling of connection to your subject that an optical viewfinder can give you -- and that tips the balance in the K-1's favor. The Pentax K1 sports even better Shake Reduction Creating a brand-new full-frame camera from scratch is no small task. As well as its image sensor, the Pentax K-1 sports a variety of brand-new technology aimed at extracting the Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera from the sensor. They might resemble features of the company's APS-C sensored cameras, but the K-1's in-body Shake Reduction and autofocus systems, too, are newly-designed.

We'll come back to autofocus in a moment, and discuss Shake reduction first. Despite needing to deal with a much larger, heavier sensor assembly, the Pentax K-1's five-axis Shake Reduction system now has an even greater corrective ability than ever, now being rated by its maker as capable of a five-stop correction.


As in that camera, the function captures four sequential images, shifting the Shake Reduction sensor-shift assembly by one pixel between shots. The result is both full color capture at every pixel location, and reduced noise levels as well. But where the K-3 II could only use the function for completely static subjects -- at least officially -- the Pentax K-1 can now detect and account for subjects that moved between frames. In a nutshell, the camera is now doing what I did manually in my field test of the K-3 II by only applying the Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera technique to static areas, while ignoring those areas where there was subject motion. This technique can give you the best of both worlds, boosting resolution for most of your scene while avoiding artifacts for the moving subjects. Although as you'll see in my field testit's better able to deal with larger moving subjects than with the subtle motion you'll find in foliage, water, and so forth.

Want to know a whole lot more? It's no longer completely unique, as Sony has achieved the same thing in hardware in some of its latest cameras, but it's still pretty special.

Pentax K-1

There's no resolution-sapping optical low-pass filter over the image sensor -- something most interchangeable-lens cameras also lack these days -- but unlike the competition, the K-1 can emulate it by moving the image sensor just slightly during the exposure. For one thing, it has been redesigned to better-cover a 35mm image frame, instead of simply providing a dense cluster of points towards the center of the frame. It also sports Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera additional six focus points that fill the gaps between the main focus array and the two outermost points in the previous-generation SAFOX chip.


These three points are also now more light-sensitive than ever before, working all the way down to -3EV. The six new points, as well as the existing leftmost and rightmost points are still linear sensors, meanwhile. Unlock the potential of your Pentax full-frame lenses While making the leap to full-frame clearly required a significant investment on Ricoh's part -- and we'd guess that's why it has taken a Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera to accomplish -- it was clearly very worthwhile because it unlocks the full potential of a great many full-frame optics, both old and new.

Pentax K-1 - Wikipedia

In total, there are a dozen Pentax full-frame lenses which are either available currently or on the way in the not-too-distant future, and many, many more from years gone by will doubtless be used on Pentaxians' cameras once they get a hold of the K Of course, not everybody has a big collection of full-frame glass, nor would they necessarily want to use it all the time if they did. Over the last decade, a great many Pentax lenses have been released with sub-frame sensors in mind, and these, too, can be used on the Pentax K Mount a lens designed for an Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera body on your Pentax K-1, and the sensor data will be cropped automatically, yielding a And you can save this cropped image in raw format too, should you desire.

You can, however, choose to enable or disable the crop manually, should you prefer.


That means you can still use your full-frame glass in cropped mode if you're shooting a distant subject and want to crop in more tightly to reduce file sizes, improve the burst capture rate and depth, and save yourself time in editing later. It also means that you can use the full image circle of your sub-frame lenses, if they happen to provide noticeably greater than APS-C coverage. Of course, not all will, and even for those which do you may notice degraded quality outside the intended image circle of the lens. Still, Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera nice to have the option. The Pentax K-1's sensitivity and performance are good for the class As you'd expect of a full-frame camera, the K-1 offers a wide sensitivity range and delivers Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera low-light shooting potential.

For its class, performance is also reasonably swift. When the photographer's inspiration is truly reflected in all these elements, photographs will become more than mere records - they Ricoh Pentax K-1 Camera evolve into truly impressive works of art. It features a new, advanced image-processing system to deliver the beautiful image quality which all photographers demand. Based on its experiences and expertise accumulated over these years, PENTAX now has the final answer: a new 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera named PENTAX K True to its number-1 naming, the PENTAX K-1 signifies the arrival of a new era in 35mm full-frame digital SLR cameras.‎PENTAX K-1 Series special site · ‎K-1 · ‎Read more · ‎K-1 Limited Silver.
