Pentax K-1 Full Frame DSLR Officially Announced with 36MP sensor, $1800

Ricoh has officially announced the Pentax K-1 full-frame DSLR camera with 36-megapixel image sensor and for a price tag of $1,799.

The first 35mm format Ricoh camera offers a 36.4MP CMOS sensor with 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization. It features a ‘nearly 100%’ optical viewfinder and 33-point AF system with 25 cross-type points. The 3.2″ 1.04M-dot LCD uses a new flexible tilting design which allows for horizontal, vertical and diagonal movement while keeping the screen in alignment with the lens axis.

The Pentax K-1’s sensor is capable of moving in all directions, supporting Ricoh’s Pixel Shift Resolution system. This does not increase linear resolution, but as in the K-3 II, it shifts the sensor slightly to record full color information at each pixel, utilizing a motion correction function in an effort to neutralize the effect of moving subjects in the frame.

The full-frame digital SLR provides a dustproof and weather-resistant construction. It comes packed with built-in Wi-Fi, 1080/30p video, 14-bit Raw capture, 4.4 fps burst shooting for up to 23 images in Raw or 70 in JPEG.
