Pentax K1 full 35mm frame review [2016-2017]

The Pentax K1 is a 36.4 MP full frame camera. It is the only conventional DSLR that is built around the K lens mount and offers a full frame sensor along with image stabilization. It is extensively sealed and is made up of magnesium alloy. With a relatively low price of $1799, it is a product that falls into the must-have category.

The key specifications include

  • 36.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor with no anti-aliasing filter
  • 100% pentaprism viewfinder with 0.7x magnification
  • 33-point AF system (25 cross-type)
  • 100% pentaprism viewfinder with 0.7x magnification
  • 1/200 sec flash sync speed
  • AA filter simulation
  • Multi-shot Pixel Shift Resolution mode

With a built-in GPS function and an electromagnetic compass and astrotracker function, this DSLR camera is extremely user-friendly. The sturdy components make this a durable and long-lasting device with extensive weather sealing.  The sensor shift cleverness is an appealing feature of those who appreciate good images. The movable sensor is taken advantage of.

The new autofocus module, also known as SAFOX 12, features 33 focus points out of which 25 of them are the cross type. The Ricoh’s obvious focus is on the core photographic capabilities. The viewfinder size is high on top of the priority list. The different exposure modes and the time lapse options are as appealing as the well-positioned dials and the image stabilization.

Still, shooters will appreciate the smart function system of the device. This adds a third command dial on the top corner. There is an added control that can define the function. These three dials give the user the ability to customize any one of them without having to go to the main menu options. The short cut method is a truly a blessing. Taking an excellent photograph is all about timing and precision.  Time is wasted while looking for the right buttons and detailed menu options.

The main aim of a camera is to capture good images. The Pentax K1 is an excellent device that gives its user the desired objective.

Canon EOS 5D Review!

This instrument is labeled to be the camera that redefines all cameras. It appeals to professionals who desire a high-quality SLR in a body that is much lighter than the EOS 1D. This 13 MP image capturing device is the first consumer priced full-framed body. This EOS 5D is different from any previous DSLR. Although it might feel slightly on the heavier and bulkier side, it is worth possessing.

Star gazing and binoculars; a peaceful moment for a soul.

Who doesn’t like to gaze at the night sky? Who wouldn’t love to see many stars? Yes, everyone! So want to have a peaceful time for yourself? Or want to show your tiny tots the number of stars in the sky? Then, Binoculars should be your next item in the shopping list.

Binoculars offer a treat to your eyes, when it comes to viewing the star lit sky at the night. You can see more than 20times the number of stars that your naked eye can see. Isn’t it amazing? Yes, it is!

But, is buying a binocular so easy? Yes, if you know these below feature to be looked upon when buying. The main two factors are Magnitude and diameter of the lens. Magnitude refers to the number of times the object is magnified and the diameter tells the wider your eyes can see.

Binoculars come in 2 types, porro- prisms and roof-prism binocular. Porro prisms are the mostly preferred ones. Here the objective lens and eyepiece are offset. For astronomical purpose you need to avoid the ones with a built in camera and zooming feature, as you don’t use them.

* Pick up a binocular and look for lenses with anti-reflection coating. It’ll mostly appear dark. If it appears white or ruby red, do not buy them astronomy binoculars are cool.

* See from the prism side of the lens, it should have a colored surface. If it’s white, then there is no Anti –reflection coating, not good option.

* Holding the eyepiece towards your face, look at the bright disk of the exit pupil. If the disk appears round, it means that the glass is of high quality. If the disk appears square, it means the glass is of low quality, not suitable for astronomy.

For daytime viewing you don’t need a high grade binocular, since ample of light is already there. For casual night time viewing you may buy a starting economical range of binoculars, as they don’t require high end ones.

Binoculars and hunting:
