BEST FULL-FRAME DSLR EXPERT
PENTAX has entered the full-frame sensor market with the dustproof and weather-resistant K-1. The 36.4MP CMOS sensor has a “simulated” anti-aliasing filter achieved through minute sensor vibrations; this motion sensor also supports RICOH’s Pixel Shift Resolution system. The K-1 features 5-axis sensor shift image stabilisation, a near 100% optical viewfinder and a 33-point AF system with 25 cross points. The rear 3.2-inch 1.04 million dot LCD, is highly flexible and allows for vertical, horizontal and diagonal movement. Current PENTAX lens owners (APS-C) can utilise all of their lenses via the K-1’s Crop mode; Auto mode will detect the lens mounted and set the crop accordingly.
RICOH THETA S
The slim and wearable design of the RICOH THETA S matches its unique image capture system. The THETA S has a 14MP 1:2.3-inch sensor/processor that delivers stills and videos with a 360-degree spherical look. It can record Full HD videos for up to 25 minutes and offers manual control of shutter speeds for settings up to 60 seconds. Its built-in memory can store up to 8GB of images.
