Pentax K-01

Pentax K-01

With styling by industrial superdesigner Marc Newson, the hot-looking new, retro-flavoured Pentax K-01  mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera—MILC for short—offers high-end photographic power in a relatively compact, high design package. Perhaps the biggest news is full compatiblity with the literally millions of Pentax K-mount lenses from decades past, with a built-in system that extends shake reduction to all.  The K-01 also packs a full complement of pro features into a chunky but contained, rugged machined aluminum body (with soft, rounded, rubberized accents courtesy of Newson design). At the core is a large 16 MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor, with 1/4000 shutter speed, 100-25600 ISO range for extreme low-light performance, burst shooting at up to 6 fps at full resolution, and full HD 1080p video capture at 30 fps. In addition to auto modes, there are both aperture- and shutter-priority modes, and full manual, and choice of JPG or data-intensive RAW image formats. There’s a 3″ LCD screen and pop-up flash. It comes in black, white, or yellow, body-only or with the Pentax DA 40mm/F2.8 XS, the world’s thinnest interchangeable digital camera lens. Form and substance, at $899.95, complete.
