The Pentax K-S1 is a new mid-range DLSR built around several of the solid technologies inside the Pentax K-3. In a world seemingly dominated by the resurgence of the retro design, Pentax has gone the opposite way with a modern design and a user interface that is designed with the mobile generation in mind.
The K-S1 features a 20MP APS-C sensor with a sensitivity range up to ISO 51,200. Additionally, the camera sports sensor-based shake reduction and 5.4 frames per second.
