Pentax Goes Retro With The MX-1

Go halfway retro with Pentax.

--

There are times when the camera on your phone doesn't cut it. You need a proper camera, but aren't quite ready for one of those SLR cameras that require you to shadow Rankin before you can use them. What's the solution? Go premium compact with this Pentax camera.

It's a conundrum. You like the way retro cameras look but you're not the type of guy who has a twirly mustache and a fixed gear bike. And most retro cameras are useless outside the hands of a trained professional, so you'd be best off avoiding them anyway.

Pentax has recently mixed the best of both worlds, combining old school design with state of the art technology. While it looks like something your great uncle would use on a safari trip, the MX-1 has full HD video recording, a three inch screen that tilts and, most importantly, a night snap mode. No more blurry images of that time you visited Paris with your significant other.

The Pentax MX-1 is released in February, RRP £399.
