Pentax K-01 Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens camera

As a full-featured mirrorless camera, the technical specifications of the Pentax K-01 may not be surpass other cameras in the same class. But K-01 have the power in its unusual aspects of the design, thanks to the touch of the hands of the Australian industrial designer Marc Newson.

Pentax K-01 has a 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the K-mount lens support with built-in image stabilization (sensor-based), many special effects and scene modes, manual controls (of course), and 1080p video recording. Interestingly, K-01 is the first single-lens mirrorless interchangeable camera (SL camera) which is compatible with lenses from a typical SLR camera without the use of an adapter.

If you assume this camera offered with a premium price for the famous designer name behind it, try rethink. K-01 has a relatively standard price. You can go body only for $ 749, or with an additional 40mm pancake lens for $ 899, or with a dual lens kit (18-55 mm and 50-200 mm zooms) for $ 999. Reasonably priced if you are used to dealing with high-end mirrorless cameras or DSLRs. Pentax provides K-01 in three colors: black, white, and yellow.

The Pentax K-01 was selected as a Product Design winner at the 2012 red dot design awards, and for a Gold award at the German Design Award 2013.
