PentaxPentax X-5 bridge camera : Within its compact, easy-to-carry body, the Pentax X-5 features a high-magnification optical 26-times zoom lens offering a focal-length coverage from 22.3mm ultra-wide angle to 580mm super telephoto (in the 35mm format). Coupled with the 1cm Macro mode, which lets the photographer capture dramatic close-up images of a subject from just one centimeter away, the Pentax X-5 offers quick, effortless shooting in a wide range of photographic situations. The Pentax X-5 also provides the Intelligent Zoom function, which extends the camera’s zoom coverage to approximately 187.2 times (for a focal length of 4174mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.

The Pentax X-5 incorporates a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. With its top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and approximately 16.0 effective megapixels, the Pentax X5 demonstrates remarkable high-sensitivity, low-noise characteristics and assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution images. The Pentax X-5 also features a state-of-the-art imaging engine. Supported by the latest Super Resolution technology, this engine offers outstanding image-processing performance to produce clear, high-quality images with well-defined details. In addition, the Pentax X-5 offers a unique Handheld Night Scene shooting mode helping the photographer to capture a blur-free night-time image by taking multiple images at once and synthesizing them into a single composite picture.

Dual shake-reduction on the Pentax X-5
The Pentax X-5’s dual shake-reduction system couples the Pentax-developed sensor-shift-type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a digital SR mode to more effectively compensate for annoying camera shake. This hybrid system assures the photographer of sharp, blur-free images even under demanding, camera-shake-prone shooting conditions, such as when using the Pentax X-5 in combination with a telephoto lens, shooting with incident light only in poorly lit locations, or photographing sunset scenes.

The user can capture high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels at a 16:9 aspect ratio) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. The Pentax X5 also offers creative movie playback features, such as High-speed Movie mode for slow-motion playback and Time-lapse Movie mode for fast-forward playback. A micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on the camera body for the output of recorded movies and sound to external devices.
