The Pentax K1
In the market for one heck of a landscape camera? How about a great studio camera? What about those of us with a tight budget? What if I told you there exists a camera that excels at landscapes, product photography, and portrait work for under $2,000 that's loaded with features and a full-frame sensor? Well, search no more dear readers, that camera is the Pentax K1.
Pentax remains a hold-out in the DSLR world and as such has become somewhat of a niche camera brand. The K1 and K1-II cameras are relatively unique in their design when compared to those made by the big three. The Pentax K1 combines the ruggedness and excellent ergonomics of a beefy DSLR with interesting and useful technology to provide an excellent still camera for a great value.
Pentax has somehow managed to stuff a 36mp full-frame sensor, in body image stabilization, GPS, a star tracking mode, pixel-shift technology and much more into their flagship camera, and all for under $2,000 at that. The image quality from the camera is stellar. It provides excellent high-ISO performance, great dynamic range, and all-day comfort despite its porky build.
So what else makes the K1 such a great camera? Check out my video below for more features and sample photos from the Pentax K1, as well as a few things I didn't like about the K1.
