Ricoh Pentax K-S2 DSLR Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Pentax K-S2 feels quite a compact imaging device in hand. It has a folding screen and also sports Wi-Fi compatibility. The camera does feel safe in hands. The mount used here is called KAF2, which lets the user get exposed to thousands of lenses ever produced by the maker. With the new lens SMC Pentax-DAL 18-50mm f/4.5.6 DC WR RE, the device can now focus faster and more accurate. The viewfinder has a glass pentaprism with a field view of 100 percent and given the price bracket, this feature is really impressive. A button dedicated to Live View is also there on the camera. The sensor used here is of 20.12MP CMOS type with ISO sensitivity range going from 100 to 51200. The image stabilization used is sensor shift based. There is a wide range of filters that can be used to make the images remarkable. Overall, this K-S2 by Pentax is a wonder.

Design and Build Quality

Ricoh Pentax K S2 is a pure DSLR as far as handling is concerned. The camera gets into the hands perfectly and has its controls silky smooth. The ergonomics beat almost every other camera and in nutshell, the camera is a joy to handle. Compared to the previous model, its build and design have improved a lot. The mode dial is a lot better than the rear dial used in K-S1. The autofocus and manual focus switches were a bit of an irritation on K-S1 but on this model, it did not lead to any problem at all. It does not shift unless you want it to. So, all the changes made here have made the camera even better in terms of operation. There can hardly be any complaints in handling it. With Pentax K-S2, you can feel a real DSLR deal in your hand - alive and ticking.

Focus and Face Detection

Pentax K-S2 features Centre, AF Tracking, Face Detection, Multi, Spot, Manual and Autofocus as the focusing modes. The new lens, SMC Pentax-DAL 18-50mm f/4.5.6 DC WR RE has a fast DC motor for focusing with RE referring to the retracting barrel. For storing in bag, the lens collapses to a small size and can be extended for usage later. WR is meant for weather resistance. The DAL is a plastic mount and there is no lens hood along with the lens supplied but there is quickshift focusing. One can make use of this trick; after autofocus has been done, one can manually focus to finetune focus over the subject.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Pentax K-S2 offers its users a new SMC Pentax-DA L 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE lens along with a 55mm filter thread. There is plastic mount to the lens and the lens hood doesn't not come with the shipped bundle. The lens allows for a quickshift function wherein you can make manual adjustments to the autofocus anytime. For shooting macro, this feature provides a lot of help. With the weather resistive construction one can shoot anywhere, irrespective of the weather conditions.

This lens is the first by the maker to comes with a RE tag, meaning retractable, for the lens can be extended and retracted for use and storage. The system is the same as used in a 15-45mm telephoto lens by the Q system. This mechanism even warns us via screen that the shutter release has been deactivated and one should try to make use of lens sans extending it. Image stabilization is also present.

Screen and Menus

Pentax K-S2 holds a 3-inch wide articulated screen for framing and viewing images, besides for Live View. The screen can be folded out as well. The menu system is easy and one can smoothly navigate through its layers.

Battery

Pentax K-S2 has its battery compartment situated at the base plate in quite the usual way. It uses a Li-ion battery pack (D-LI109), which is more convenient than the AA batteries. The number of shots rated come to 480 as per CIPA testing standards without the use of flash and while on full charge. If you use flash half of the time, then the count turns to 410. You can also do a lot of replaying and reviewing of videos and images before reaching the given shot count.

Video Mode

Pentax K-S2 can record movies in MP4 avc/h.264 format with a full HD resolution. There is an in-built stereo mic, the levels of which can be adjusted. Videos can be recorded for 25 minutes or 4GB in memory just at one go, which further depends on the internal temperature of the camera reaching crucial levels. SR and digital filters can be utilized in the movie mode. One can turn the movie mode on and off thus, it can be used any time. The video quality is pleasing and smooth and has improved over the previous products. The resolution of video captured is 1920 x 1080 pixels. The frame rates used are 24/25/30fps. Sound can be recorded in stereo format and optical zoom can be used while recording videos. 

Sensors

Pentax K-S2 comes with a 20.12MP CMOS APS-C sized sensor. The width of the pixels is 5472 units and height is 3648 units with an aspect ratio of 3:2. K-S2's noise levels are quite well handled and images can be used up to ISO1600. The same holds until you reach ISO6400 and above that, there is a loss in detail, sharpness goes down and noise seeps in. Moreover, camera shake also spoils the images.

  • Pentax K-S2 comes with a new and compact retractable lens
  • There is in-built NFC and Wi-Fi
  • Image quality is high
  • The camera is value for money

It is as good as an Entry-level DSLR can get
by Aditya on 2015-08-10

A great deal! This Pentax is classy, unlike the Ks-1 which was ridiculous. I find the camera to be excellent for photos, not so great for videos but it's not too bad either. Apart from that I don't
