Pentax MX-1

13 Reasons why Pentax MX-1 is better

than the average

1.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
3.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
4.A tad more battery power
1250mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
61mmvs 97mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
6.Explicitly less body volume
379.5cm³vs 531.1cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
7.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
8.A little bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
9.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
10.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
11.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
12.Notably wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
13.Pentax SMC coated lens
Pentax has set the benchmark on lens coatings for decades.
