PentaxPentax XG-1 superzoom camera : The Pentax XG-1 is a versatile, all-purpose bridge camera; perfect for beginners who are looking for a step up from a compact camera. The camera allows you to effortlessly capture a variety of images from friends and family to more specialist subjects including nature, pets, beautiful scenery and fast-action sports. The Pentax XG-1 is ideal if you’re looking for a camera to capture those all important moments when you’re out and about. This lightweight, compact camera has an easy-to-carry body with a design resembling Pentax SLR cameras. It offers a host of outstanding basic features, including a powerful 52-times optical zoom lens, approximately 16.0 effective megapixels for high-resolution images, and a large, easy-to-view 3.0-inch LCD monitor.

For those who are less keen on carrying a bag of lenses ‘just in case’ this camera offers it all. Able to cover ultra-wide-angle (24mm) to super-telephoto (1.248mm) ranges, this all-in-one model performs superbly whatever the subject. If close up macro shots are more your thing, then you’ll love the 1cm Macro mode, which allows you to capture dramatic, eye-catching close-up images from a distance of just one centimetre. That’s perfect for capturing the detail of your favourite wildlife and flowers.

Pentax XG-1 camera features
This Pentax XG-1 certainly packs a punch when it comes to high-speed continuous shooting, making sure you never miss a moment - even if it’s a moving subject. The Pentax XG-1 offers standard continuous shooting mode with a maximum speed of 9 images per second. But if you prefer life in the fast lane this camera also offers a super-high-speed continuous shooting mode with a maximum speed of approximately 60 images per second and a high-speed continuous shooting mode with a maximum speed of approximately 30 images per second. Coupled with Auto Tracking AF function, it will keep your moving subject in focus, whether that’s a bird or a dirtbike - producing dramatic, perhaps even once-in-a-lifetime shots! Add to this the XG-1’s shake reduction system and you’ll be guaranteed a full set of sharply focused, blur-free pictures.

Record videos with the Pentax XG-1
And if a picture still doesn’t capture the full essence of your subject, switch your Pentax XG-1 into HD-standard movie recording, select your preferred choice of one of eight digital filters (including black & white and sepia), and sit back. You can playback your movies on the camera, or connect a micro-HDMI lead to watch on the big screen at home and share your adventures with friends and family.
