Pentax announces K-01 digital camera

Pentax has officially announced a new digital camera, dubbed the K-01 that features a bold design and pretty good specs.

The K-01 is a mirrorless interchangable lens camera that was announced together with a revised 40mm F2.8 pancake lens to match. The K-01 arrives with a 16 megapixel APS-C sensor and can mount most of the lenses the company has ever made. It also features sensor-shift image stabilization, a 920k dot rear LCD and can shoot at up to 6 frames per second. The K-01 can also shoot 1080p video while the light sensitivity is ISO 25600.

What makes the K-01 unique is its design – the camera was designed by Pentax and the British designer Marc Newson and features a classic chassis. Colors can also be fancy – you can find the K-01 in black and yellow although there’s also a classic black only option.
