Pentax K-1 Hands-On Demo Videos
A look at features, AF sounds, and SR effectiveness
While at CP+ 2016, we had the opportunity to test various aspects of the Pentax K-1 hands-on. A Ricoh representative also showed us a few key features of this new Pentax full frame camera:
The exhibitors prepared a special rig to showcase the effectiveness of SR II. Let the results speak for themselves:
Finally, in response to user requests, we tested the K-1's AF noise with a screwdrive lens:
It sounds like the K-1 features the more powerful AF motor first launched in the Pentax K-3. This results in slightly noisier AF with screwdrive lenses, but also substantially improves focusing speed. The longer the focus throw, the larger the benefit of the faster motor.
