Pentax K-S1 Review

Pentax K-S1 Review Ricoh introduces the modern and well-equipped Pentax K-S1: Exceptionally designed DSLR

Not only since the K-01 has Pentax been known for its occasionally unusual design, Ricoh continues to do so after purchasing the camera division of the traditional Japanese manufacturer. With the new DSLR Pentax K-S1, however, Ricoh also wants to combine the innovative design with an innovative operation, for example, the shutter release illumination changes from green to red in video mode. But also technically the beginner DSLR has a lot to offer, which was previously only to be found in the flagship model K-3.

Smaller manufacturers have to score with special cameras. As a Ricoh brand, this makes Pentax an exemplary model with well-equipped models. Especially the SLR cameras convinced with smart functions and solid workmanship at a reasonable price. With the Pentax K-S1, Ricoh presents another innovation: The design takes some getting used to, but the special thing is the LED lights in the handle, which can indicate different operating states. Whether these lights are really a worthwhile innovation was of course just as interesting to us as the original functions and, of course, the image quality. Both in practice and with the software for testing, Die K-S1 had to show what it was made of.

The APS-C image sensor, for example, has a resolution of 20 megapixels and is movably mounted for image stabilization. As with the K-3, a low-pass filter is no longer used, resulting in a higher usable resolution. In order to nevertheless suppress moirés if necessary, the K-S1 has a low-pass filter simulation in which the sensor is set into micro-vibrations in order to reduce the resolution somewhat, as in a low-pass filter, which also reduces moirés. Inherited from the K-3, the K-S1 has a viewfinder with a genuine pentaprism and 100 percent field coverage, which is unique in this camera class. The PRIME IIM image processor ensures fast image processing, and the continuous shooting speed reaches a maximum of 5.4 frames per second. ISO sensitivity is high up to ISO 51,200, exposures can be short up to 1/6,000 second.

The autofocus of the Pentax K-S1 works with eleven sensors, nine of which are cross sensors. This is the SAFOX IXi+, which works with up to -1 EV little ambient light. Autofocus in dark environments is supported by an AF auxiliary light. The exposure metering comes to 77 metering fields. On the rear 3 inch screen with its 921,000 pixel resolution Live-View can be activated on request. The K-S1 can also record videos; at Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080), 30, 25 or 24 frames per second are available, the sound is recorded via the integrated stereo microphone. In addition to numerous scene modes and the creative programmes P, A, S and M, TAv, Sv and B are also available as shooting programmes. In TAv, aperture and exposure time are controlled by the photographer, ISO sensitivity automatically by the camera. With Sv it is exactly the other way round and in B mode long exposures can be made. In addition, numerous effect filters are available, which can also be used after the recording. It is also possible to develop raw images in the camera.

In addition to its design, the Pentax K-S1 is said to be particularly innovative and intuitive to use, as simple as a smartphone, according to Ricoh. This doesn’t include a touch screen, but the monitor is used to display a graphical user interface, which should save the user from cumbersome menus. The numerous LEDs on the camera not only serve as decoration, they also serve a purpose. For example, the LEDs on the handle indicate how many faces have been recognized by the camera. The illuminated ring on the shutter release again indicates whether you are in photo mode, then it lights green, or in video mode, then it lights red. The program selector wheel is arranged around the four-weigher, making it easy to reach with your thumb. This wheel also glows. And if you don’t like the many LEDs, you can simply switch them off.

With a DSLR, the battery usually lasts quite long, the K-S1 is no exception, 650 shots should be according to the CIPA standard. The SD card slot supports the FluCard for Pentax, with which not only images can be transferred to a smartphone via WLAN, but the camera can also be controlled via it. The web browser is used instead of an app.

 

With the Pentax K-S1, Ricoh shows a bold design and wants to open up new groups of buyers. The total of 15 available housing colours do not make the decision easy.

Depending on the mode, the release button of the Pentax K-S1 will light green (for photos) or red (for videos). Switching between modes is done using the ring switch on the shutter release button.

Ergonomics and workmanship

The color spectrum of most SLR cameras is limited to black, sometimes silver and less often a third color. Pentax or Ricoh has a lot more to offer. If you find the black-grey version too dreary, you can also order the Pentax K-S1 in a range of other colours: On the Ricoh homepage, the color configurator presents eleven variants arranged by theme, with three more to follow from mid-November: In the basic color white, the K-S1 is decorated with bright red, yellow-green or sky-blue applications. I did not have any of these colors for the testing, just a standard black.

The five LEDs on the handle of the Pentax K-S1 either indicate the number of faces detected or visually count down the last five seconds of the self-timer.

The black Pentax K-S1 looks a bit angular, which is mainly due to the design of the handle. Its silver-grey flank is continued in a narrow decorative strip over the camera’s top surface, thus setting itself sharply apart from the otherwise unstructured matt black body. The mirrored stripe on the front of the handle, which conceals five green LEDs, also emphasises the sharp lines. This angularity on the inside of the handle is somewhat disturbing, as it is not big enough at least for long fingers and could have been a little rounder. After all, the case there is slightly rubberized and the thumb also finds a non-slip grip on the back of a rubber application. The K-S1 does not stick straight to the hand, but can still be held properly.

The tripod thread of the Pentax K-S1 is made of metal and fits perfectly in the optical axis. For small tripod exchange plates there is even enough distance to the memory card and battery bay.

The housing is completely made of plastic except for the bayonet and tripod thread. This makes the camera look a bit cheap, but this does not apply to the processing quality. The case is quite stable, nothing creaks – not even when you grab it hard. The battery and memory card cover is also made of plastic, but snaps securely into place and provides adequate protection against dust penetration. Their hinge is far enough away from the tripod thread in the optical axis so that a change of battery and SD card is possible when the (narrow) quick-release plate is mounted. The rubber cover of the HDMI and USB port has turned out to be a little puny, but it fulfils its purpose.

Lithium-ion battery and SD memory card are removed from the bottom of the Pentax K-S1. An optional battery dummy with mains cable allows an external power supply.

Even if the case seems to be a bit “price-optimized”, the switches and cogs are quite convincing. The mode selection ring on the back snaps in neatly and can be easily operated with the thumb, but without being accidentally adjusted. This is almost impossible due to the flat design alone. The thumbwheel is also easily accessible, all buttons as well as the trigger have a precise pressure point. Unfortunately, the arrow keys for ISO, white balance, flash and shutter control may be tightly located inside the mode ring, especially if the photographer has slightly stronger thumbs. Apart from that, the operation of the Pentax K-S1 is typical for many SLR cameras and hardly gives even beginners any puzzles.

The selector ring is used to set the desired function, aperture, time and other parameters can then be adjusted using the arrow keys and thumbwheel. Deeper intervention in the action is possible by pressing the Info key, which can be used to call up a quick menu. Depending on the set mode, all necessary parameters can be influenced there. A touch-sensitive display would be nice for this, but with the help of the arrow keys and the thumbwheel, all settings can be made quickly even without a touchscreen. By the way, the most important keys are illuminated and therefore easy to use even in the dark. To prevent the backlight from interfering with shooting, the shutter release button is pressed halfway to turn it off. It’s so comfortable, you’d want it on other cameras too.

The extensive camera menu is divided into 14 index cards and shows a maximum of seven setting options on each card, some of which branch into further subgroups. A little bit of research and experimentation is therefore already called for if the possibilities are to be fully exploited. In particular, the assignment of some keys can be adapted to individual preferences. A special feature of the Pentax should also be mentioned: since there is no video trigger, the main switch on the trigger must first be used to switch to video mode and then the photo trigger must be used to start and stop video recording. The shutter-release button illumination changes from green to red.

Unfortunately, the display is firmly installed, but shows a bright, high-contrast and clear picture, even with a slanted view. In the Live View, different grids, overexposure warnings and histograms can be displayed on request. In the SLR viewfinder, the amount of information is much smaller due to the principle, but nevertheless the view through the viewfinder is a pleasure: for an entry-level camera, the viewfinder is quite large and bright and with its image coverage of 100 percent clearly above average; even the viewfinder mats can be changed.

Equipment

The equipment of the Pentax K-S1 is also above the average of an entry-level camera. There is almost everything on board that the photographer needs or could use. From the “press the button, I’ll do the rest” automatic to complete control by the photographer, everything is included. An invitation to play are the ten effects, of which we especially liked the two black-and-white modes. But even in scene mode, effect filters can be switched on and their effect can be modified. A lot of scope for experiments directly from the camera, which should be especially nice for computer muffins. A lot of helpers for the error-free image directly from the camera also make its correction on the PC superfluous: Highlights, shadows, distortions, edge darkening and chromatic aberration are automatically corrected on request, the K-S1 does without a resolution-reducing AA filter. Should disturbing moiré appear, it can be reduced with the help of two digital filters or multiple exposure. All effects can also be applied to the photos at a later date, and raw development of images saved in either Pentax PEF format or Adobe DNG format is also possible. The result can be saved as a new JPG file. The Pentax K-S1 is a true image processing machine that largely eliminates the need for a computer.

Also surprising for this camera class is the image stabilizer built into the housing. This means that each lens is equipped with a shake protection. Unfortunately, the image of the optical viewfinder is not stabilized due to the principle. Only in Live View can you watch the Stabi work reliably. In fact, the Pentax only reaches top form in the Live View: Histogram, overexposure warning and exposure preview are of course only available there, as is the digital viewfinder magnifier, which can be switched on at the touch of a button, focus peaking and face recognition. The contrast autofocus of almost 0.8 seconds up to the shot is slow compared to most mirrorless system cameras (some of which manage this in only 0.2 seconds), but significantly faster than any DSLR measured in our laboratory so far.

The Pentax K-S1 has an AF/MF switch on the side.

The normal SLR AF (phase difference autofocus) is equipped with eleven measuring fields on average. The choice of fields can be left to the camera or made by the photographer using the arrow keys. Unfortunately, the focus fields concentrate very much on the center of the image, so that edge areas can only be reached by swivelling the camera. The autofocus is quite fast and accurate in good lighting conditions with 0.2 to 0.3 seconds, but makes some noise with the 18-55 mm kit zoom. In low light, a bright green light-emitting diode provides support, but sometimes the camera does not find the sharpness. However, a lot can be done to adapt the autofocus to your own needs, including focus adjustment for front or back focus. For example, the option of paying special attention to the selected focus point during the exposure metering is smart. The “catch-in focus” function is very promising when only manually focusing lenses are used. It fires the camera as soon as a subject enters the focus area of the manual lens. Unfortunately we could not try this function due to a lack of suitable optics.

In video mode, only the start position is automatically focused, which the camera announces with a clear mirror-beat at the beginning of the recording. Then the focus remains fixed or must be adjusted manually. Apart from that, the video mode is quite well equipped. Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) shoots at 24, 25, or 30 frames per second, with automatic exposure, program exposure, or manual exposure – and some digital filters are even possible during movie recording. Although there is no sound from the focus motor on the soundtrack due to the lack of autofocus, the hand noises can still be heard. In any case, it is recommended to switch to manual focus from the outset. This separates the focus motor housed in the camera body from the lens, which greatly reduces the effort and noise involved in manual focusing.

The handle of the Pentax K-S1 is a bit edgy and should be more pronounced, but has a good grip due to the rubber coating.

In order to get the maximum out of the K-S1 at continuous shooting speed, a few measures are necessary: If all image corrections are switched off, no AF-C is used and the Pentax only has to save JPG files, almost 5 frames per second are possible. However, she only holds out for 13 photos, after which she breaks into one picture every 2.5 seconds. Probably both the card interface and the image processor are responsible for this, because after a series the Pentax needs almost 40 seconds to process and store the data. After all, it is still possible to continue taking pictures in spite of the illuminated memory light. This bottleneck is not a problem for the HDR function, for example, because the K-S1 can take three exposures at full speed. The photographer can set the exposure steps between one and three f-stops as well as three different HDR variants and one automatic step. However, HDR3 is clearly exaggerated and is more of an effect than a dynamic extension.

The APS-C-sized CMOS sensor on the Pentax K-S1 resolves 20 megapixels.

Unfortunately, the Pentax does not have an electronic spirit level, but the position sensor stores the information in portrait or landscape format and automatically aligns the photos. The built-in flash has to be unfolded manually if necessary, but can be used for all common functions such as pre-flash to avoid red eyes, long-term synchronisation also on the second shutter curtain and manual operation with adjustable flash output. At the short end of the kit zoom it doesn’t glow all the way into the corners, the light loss is over two f-stops, which is visible with critical subjects. This can be remedied with an external light dispenser that fits in the accessory shoe.

And what about the five light-emitting diodes in the handle? First of all, the Pentax K-S1 is quite unique and an eye-catcher when the lights come into action when switched on and go out again after a short time. The signals are only really useful for photos with self-timer, because the light bar counts down the last five seconds. If desired, the lights can also report the number of recognized faces. But of course the photographer doesn’t see that, which probably isn’t the point. You may want to use this feedback for self-portraits and group photos with self-timer if you want to know if all faces are captured by the camera before taking a picture. The lights can be switched off for all those who regard this as an unnecessary gimmick.

Picture quality

The kit zoom does not exhaust the possibilities of the 20 megapixel sensor of the K-S1 by far. The resolution does not reach 40 line pairs per millimeter (lp/mm) even at optimal apertures between F5.6 and F8. At the short end and open aperture not even the 30 lp/mm are cracked at the edge of the picture. If the laboratory measurement had shown a low distortion, the low resolution would probably be due to the digital equalization, but the measured values show a clear ton, which contradicts this thesis. In addition, there is a not inconsiderable lateral chromatic aberration which, despite digital correction in the camera, shows up as a color fringing with up to two pixels width, especially in the wide-angle. Photos therefore appear somewhat soft, interweaving the finest details. The fact that Pentax can build better lenses is impressively demonstrated by the 35 mm Macro Limited measured on the K-3, which easily cracks the 50 lp/mm. It is praiseworthy that Pentax does not try with exaggerated re-sharpening to pretend dissolution, whereby sharpening artifacts are hardly an issue. The texture sharpness shows good values up to ISO 1,600 and both grain size and color noise are limited up to high ISO regions. The less annoying brightness noise is low up to ISO 1,600 and only becomes clearly annoying from ISO 25,600. In between, the noise becomes visibly stronger, but is quite bearable. Even the signal-to-noise ratio only falls below the critical 35 dB limit beyond the 1,600 mark. The input dynamics are pleasingly high, the K-S1 can also handle up to ISO 1,600 over 10 f-stops, and the value falls by about half an f-stop above this per sensitivity step. On the camera side, the Pentax K-S1 can therefore be used without hesitation up to ISO 1,600, with a slight cutback also one or two steps higher, but the two highest steps should be avoided.

When it comes to color reproduction, the K-S1 is quite colourful. All warm colours are reproduced with significantly higher saturation, green and turquoise tones slightly too blue. This is due to the fact that Pentax has set the picture mode to “illuminated” at the time of delivery. If you like it colourful, you will enjoy this attitude, all others are recommended to use the mode “neutral”. In contrast to the clear coloration, Pentax is rather moderate when it comes to tonal value transfer. At first, this leads to somewhat fainter midtones, which, however, can easily be split up on the computer. A picture mode with higher contrast can also help. Here the K-S1 sets hardly any limits for the photographer.

Bottom line

For an entry-level camera, the Pentax K-S1 has an ambitious price, but is also quite well equipped. The image stabilizer in the housing does an excellent job, for a DSLR it has a fast contrast autofocus in Live View and in addition there are the extremely extensive editing options in the camera. On the other hand, the K-S1 weakens the haptics, the case looks a bit cheap, although the workmanship is fine. And the design at least needs getting used to. Savings have been made on the internal buffer for continuous shooting and the image processor, because the processing speed of the large amount of data, in particular from continuous shooting, slow down the Pentax. The kit lens is also price-optimized, so the K-S1 certainly deserves better. The handle’s heavily advertised lights play is a nice gimmick that won’t bother and occasionally even provides useful information. The illuminated keys are much more sensible. All in all, the Pentax K-S1 is a solid entry-level DSLR with a sophisticated equipment, whose market price is likely to fall to a reasonable amount.

Pentax K-S1 soon available in new colours

With the DSLR K-S1, Pentax wants to open up new groups of buyers with fresh colours from mid-November 2014. The colours are based on sweets and desserts: Lime Pie, Strawberry Cake and Blue Cream Soda. The cameras are predominantly white with colored shining details alternatively in lime green, light red or light blue. The corresponding lens DAL 18-55 mm is white with a light grey control ring.

Technically, the cameras correspond to the previous K-S1. The small DSLR features a Pentax K bayonet and a 20 megapixel CMOS sensor in APS-C size. To stabilize the image, the sensor is movably mounted and held in position by electromagnets. The highlight is the pentaprism viewfinder with 100 percent image field coverage, such a quality is normally only available in significantly higher price classes. In addition, the K-S1 has a fixed 3″ screen with a resolution of 921,000 pixels. LEDs as illumination and an intuitive user interface are intended to make operation particularly easy. Since November 2014, the Pentax K-S1 was available in the three new color variants, giving a total of 15 colors to choose from.

I am Peter Dench. Digital Photographer, born in London 1972, currently living in Deerfield, near Chicago. I have numerous photography expositions and also working in model photography. In this website, PhotoPoint, I usually review cameras provided by local dealers in Illinois and by the manufacturers. Sometimes I, Peter Dench, review lenses too, but only when I have a suitable camera for them. Please let me know in the comments if I can improve any of these articles.
