Ricoh Announces the Pentax XG-1 Digital Camera With 52x Optical Zoom

Photography News: Pentax XG-1 Digital Camera Features 16MP, 52x Zoom, 4x Digital Zoom, and Sensor-ShiftShake Reduction, Now Available at B&H Photo Video

NEW YORK CITY, NY--(Marketwired - July 14, 2014) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Pentax XG-1, a new digital camera from Ricoh. The XG-1 has a 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor and a 52x zoom lens, with the 35mm equivalent of 24 - 1248mm, as well as 4x digital-zoom capabilities. Shake Reduction technology blends both sensor-shift and digital image stabilization types to reduce the appearance of camera shake when making longer exposures or using the lens's telephoto zoom range.

Additionally, sensitivity to ISO 3200, a maximum f/2.8-5.6 aperture, and the sensor's backlit design produce cleaner, clearer results in difficult lighting. Read all about the Pentax XG-1here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1066392-REG/pentax_07988_xg_1_digital_camera_black.html

A 3.0" LCD screen on the rear of the camera allows for composition, image review, and menu navigation, while a 200k-dot electronic viewfinder provides another means of composition for traditionalists or for composing in bright sunlight.

With the Pentax XG-1 you can shoot full HD video at 30 fps, and slow-motion 640 x 480p video at 120 fps. For shooting stills, the camera can capture 10 fps at full resolution, and up to 60 fps at 640 x 480 pixels.

A macro mode on the camera allows it to focus as close as 0.4" (1 cm) and an HDR mode combines three different images into one to capture a wider dynamic range. The camera also features multiple scene modes, capture modes, and 19 digital filters. It utilizes SD/SDHC memory cards and is compatible with Eye-Fi cards as well. The XG-1 blends the form of a DSLR with the function of a compact zoom camera.
