Detailed features of Ricoh Pentax X5
Coupled with the 1cm Macro mode, which lets the photographer capture dramatic close-up images of a subject from just one centimeter away, it offers quick, effortless shooting in a wide range of photographic situations.
It also provides the Intelligent Zoom function, which extends the camera’s zoom coverage to approximately 187.2 times (for a focal length of 4174mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.
The Ricoh Pentax X5’s dual shake-reduction system couples the PENTAX-developed sensor-shift-type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a digital SR mode to more effectively compensate for annoying camera shake.
This hybrid system assures the photographer of sharp, blur-free images even under demanding, camera-shake-prone shooting conditions, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting with incident light only in poorly lit locations, or photographing sunset scenes.
The Ricoh Pentax X5 incorporates a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor.
With its top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and approximately 16.0 effective megapixels, it demonstrates remarkable high-sensitivity, low-noise characteristics and assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution images.
The Ricoh Pentax X-5 also features a state-of-the-art imaging engine.
Supported by the latest Super Resolution technology, this engine offers outstanding image-processing performance to produce clear, high-quality images with well-defined details.
In addition, its unique Handheld Night Scene shooting mode helps the photographer capture a blur-free night-time image by taking multiple images at once and synthesizing them into a single composite picture.
Large, tilt-able LCD monitor. The Ricoh Pentax X5 comes equipped with a large 3.0-inch, high-definition LCD monitor with approximately 460,000 dots.
Its tilt-able construction allows the photographer to tilt the monitor up and down and set it at angle easiest for viewing.
It also provides a clear view of images and menus displayed on the screen to assure a quick, effortless check of recorded images and swift, error-free setting changes.
