Pentax X-5 Digital Bridge Camera in Black

The Pentax X-5 is a bridge camera with a huge 26x optical zoom range with extra wide angle. It also has DSLR-like functionality with goodies such as a large tiltable LCD screen, electronic viewfinder, ultra fast shooting, Full HD movies and an intuitive DSLR-style function dial.

Extra Wide Angle 26x Zoom
The X-5 has an extremely useful 26x optical zoom range. In 35mm terms it is equivalent to a 22.3 – 580mm lens. This includes everything from extra wide-angle to super telephoto. Another string to this lens’s bow is the fact that in Super Macro mode it can focus as close as 1cm away. If the massive zoom range still isn’t enough there is Intelligent Zoom which increases the zoom range to 187.2x with a maximum equivalent focal length of 4174mm, with little noticeable falloff in image quality.

Back Illuminated CMOS Sensor
This camera includes a stabilised, back-illuminated CMOS sensor. This design is roughly twice as light-efficient as non-backlit versions, making it ideal for low light photography. The effective pixel count is 16.0 megapixels and the ISO sensitivity can be set as high as ISO 6400. This sensor also has the latest Super High Resolution Technology, making it ideal for Intelligent Zoom and maximising overall sharpness.

Dual Shake-Reduction
The Pentax X5 combats shaky images on two levels. Firstly there is the mechanical Sensor Shift image stabiliser to correct camera wobbles and also Digital Shake Reduction which finishes the job by digitally correcting any residual shaking.

Choose your Viewing Style
This model includes both a 3" tiltable LCD screen with 460,000-dot resolution and an EVF (electronic viewfinder) with diopter adjustment for spectacle wearers.

Full HD and Special Movie Effects
You can record Full HD Movies (1920 x 1080, H.264 format) in 16:9 widescreen at 30frames per second for a super high quality video file. Also in 640x480 VGA resolution there is High Speed Movie Mode (for slow motion) and Time Lapse Movie Mode. An HDMI socket also included for viewing externally in HD such as on your TV.

Intuitive Mode Dial
Just like you get on a DSLR, the X-5 includes a Quick-set Mode Dial including Auto Picture, Scene, Program, Manual, Landscape and Handheld Night Snap.
