The Pentax K-01 Hybrid; Photographic Perfection

Examiner
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: My experience with Pentax goes back to the original K-1000. In fact, my first digital camera was the Pentax WG1 (reviewed a couple of years ago). Now, thanks to the mind of industrial designer Marc Newson, Pentax's latest mirrorless camera really epitomizes the word “hybrid”. To look at it, you will notice its unique boxy design. It is easy to hold. Whether you have a large or small set of hands, it fits easily.
