Pentax K-01: The First K-Mount Mirrorless System Digital Camera

Pentax K-01 is the world’s first K-Mount mirrorless digital camera. This camera is designed by world famous designer Marc Newson. Its large 16 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor delivers outstanding high resolution image. You can also capture Full HD video with dedicated button.

The PENTAX K-01 comes equipped with a newly developed CMOS image sensor measuring 23.7 millimeters by 15.7 millimeters. With approximately 16.28 effective megapixels, this extra-large sensor assures high-speed readout of image data signals. The K-01 also features the new “PRIME M” imaging engine to assure first-rate movie recording performance in a digital interchangeable lens camera. It also offers an extra-wide sensitivity range -from ISO 100 to ISO 12800 or to ISO 25600 when expanded using a custom function- while minimizing annoying digital noise at all sensitivity levels.

As all PENTAX SLR, the K-01 is equipped with a sensor shift shake reduction system. This system moves the sensor in the opposite direction than the one of the camera, so that the sensor remains in the same position during the shooting of the pictures.

This system is also really usefull while using the video mode and last but not least, as built in the camera, this system is working with all lenses without having to pay extra money for stabilized lense when buying a new one.
