Ricoh Pentax Q-S1. The key components needed for superior image quality are the image sensor, imaging engine and lens. By optimizing these three components, the PENTAX Q-S1 assures the beautiful image rendition demanded from lens-interchangeable digital cameras.
Detailed features of Ricoh Pentax Q-S1.
For effective reduction of camera shake with all lenses. In-body SR (Shake Reduction). 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.
Q ENGINE. Featuring the exclusive Q ENGINE as its imaging engine, the Ricoh 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.
DR II (Dust Removal II). 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.
Scene Mode. With a choice of 21 Scene Modes, you can easily and instantly optimize exposure settings and a finishing touch for a given scene or subject — without the need for advanced skills or an in-depth knowledge of digital photography — simply by selecting the corresponding Scene Mode icon on the menu.
Top sensitivity of ISO 12800. The Ricoh Pentax 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 minimizes 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.
For automatic setting of the best shooting mode, with a push of the shutter-release button. Auto Picture. The user-friendly Auto Picture mode detects a given scene or subject, and selects the most appropriate shooting mode from such options as Portrait, Landscape and Night Scene Portrait — all automatically. You can capture beautiful images without worrying about camera settings.
