Pentax K-S1 Review

on Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The Pentax K-S1 is the smallest Digital SLR from Pentax, available in a number of colours, and is one of the most modern looking Pentax DSLRs launched with an updated user interface and updated control system on the back. The camera has 5 LEDs on the front grip, and a light surrounding the shutter release button changes colour depending what mode you are in, turning red in video mode, and green in photo mode. The controls on the back of the camera are also illuminated which could be useful in low-light or at night, and the camera features a large mode dial.

Pentax K-S1 Features:

  • 20.12 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (with AA simulator feature)
  • LED body illumination 
  • 3.0-inch, LCD monitor
