Pentax MX-1 review

TechRadar UK
7 March 2013
  • Summary: How appealing is this retro-styled premium compact?
  • Pros: Wide aperture lens, Brass construction, Tilting screen, The Sony sensor onboard the Pentax MX-1 produces some very sharp images with excellent colour rendition, especially in good lighting conditions.
  • Cons: Boxy design, Dated user interface, Some odd handling quirks, The boxy design won't appeal to everyone, and while manufacturers such as Fujifilm manage to fall the right side of retro, this camera just looks dated.
