Looking for a smartly designed, super-compact camera with interchangeable lenses? Ricoh Imaging Company UK have launched the Pentax Q-S1 interchangeable lens digital camera. Ideal for everyday use, this camera suits photographers of all levels, and is the right size to take with you everywhere you go.
Featuring the Q ENGINE as its imaging engine, the Pentax Q-S1 not only assures extra-fine image description and efficient noise processing, but also provides a host of shooting and image-editing functions. This imaging engine is also the key to responsive, high-speed camera operation.
The Pentax Q-1 features a 1/1.7-inch back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with a wide dynamic range at high-sensitivity settings. With approximately 12.4 effective megapixels, it produces beautiful, high-resolution images with rich gradation and minimal noise.
The Q-S1 boasts a maximum sensitivity of ISO 12800. It assures true-to-life images with minimal noise, even during high-sensitivity shooting. In low-light shooting, it minimises blurring caused by camera shake and subject movement, without the need to reduce the shutter speed. You can handhold the camera in a wider range of situations than ever before.
The PENTAX Q-S1 features a sensor-shift-type SR system, which effectively suppresses blurring even when shooting low-light scenes or distant subjects using a telephoto lens.* This system even works with lenses other than Q-mount lenses, simply by inputting the focal length.
The DR II mechanism efficiently removes dust adhering to the CMOS image sensor using ultrasonic vibration. You can activate it manually whenever you feel the need, or select automatic operations every time the camera’s power is switched on or off.
The Pentax-original Q-mount lens system optimises optical performance while minimising the camera’s bulk. With a variety of interchangeable lenses to choose from, you can react swiftly and flexibly to all types of subjects to faithfully express your creative intentions.
