Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Advanced functions capture light with complete freedom for a satisfying shot.
The light interface “Indicator Lamps” intuitively guides operations.
Prepare yourself for a new style of expression where you can hold light in your hand. Introducing the PENTAX K-S1.

Anti-Aliasing Filter Simulator
The low-pass filterless design maximizes resolution from the CMOS image sensor. This model is also equipped with the PENTAX-original Anti-Aliasing Filter Simulator function which reduces moiré that occurs due to tiny drive operations of the sensor. Two merits are obtained from this one unit.

Indicator Lamps

The Indicator Lamps use LED to display camera status. This use of light provides intuitive camera control. The design floats like a light display for a unique sense of presence.

Main switch:
Green for still images, and red for movies

The 5 lights in a line display a countdown for Face Detection, Remote Control, and Self-timer.

Mode dial:
The currently set mode appears in green. When shutter release is available, the OK button is lit in blue.

ISO 51200
With the new CMOS image sensor and Prime M II image processor, high sensitivity of ISO 51200 is achieved. This feature shows its true ability when shooting in dark scenes that were not possible with previous cameras.

A new GUI design is used so setting content for each function can be understood at a glance.
Moving explanations and easy-to-understand displays make controls easier.

Optical viewfinder with approx. 100% field of view
A glass prism finder is used with the same specs as those found on PENTAX high end cameras. With the large, easy to use viewfinder with an approximate 100% field of view and approximate 0.95x magnification (viewfinder magnification), focusing and composing shots are easier, letting you focus on the subject.

New concept design

The main body unit portrays a sharp and advanced feel, whereas the light path that contains the traditional pentaprism is very much like an authentic SLR. By combining two differing shapes into a new concept design, a compact, lightweight camera that fits in the palm of the hand is created.
