Pentax RICOH Imaging Americas Corporation just unveils a new interchangeable lens camera designed by Marc Newson – Pentax K-01. Globally known for designing a wide range of objects from furniture and household products to bicycles, cars, aircraft, and yachts, Marc Newson is one of the most acclaimed and influential contemporary designers.

Pentax K-01 Interchangeable Lens Camera

All-new Pentax K-01 interchangeable lens camera boasts array of advanced functions and easy-to-use features in a beautiful camera body. Elimination of optical viewfinder and quick-return mirror gave Marc Newson more freedom in designing the camera body with remarkable form. Pentax K-01 showcases Marc Newson originality in every detail. As world’s thinnest interchangeable lens, pre-equipped Pentax-DA 40mm F2.8 XS delivers a unique ILC system that’s perfect for those photographers who are as keen on design as they are on performance.

Great combination of Pentax K-01 and 40mm lens system marks the intersection where high-technology and high-design meet. Camera’s mirrorless body design is compatible with 25+ million PENTAX K-mount lenses spanning decades. Featuring 16 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor with low noise image captures and multiple aspect ratios ensures superior results. Sporting high-resolution 3-inch LCD with 920,000 dots enables users to capture and share brilliant pictures every time.

Full HD 1080p video capture at 30 FPS with h.264 compression (60 FPS at 720p) offers outstanding video capture flexibility. Burst Mode on this Pentax interchangeable lens camera allows 6 frames per second video capturing, making it ideal for fast-action photography. Flexible ISO range of 100-25600 ensures stunning noise-free images in any lighting condition, while focus peaking mode provides accurate manual focusing for critical focus apps.

Available in black, white, and Newson’s signature yellow colors in March for $749.95 (body only) and $899.95 (lens kit including new DA 40mm XS), Pentax K-01 features designer’s autograph logo stamp on the bottom of camera.
