'a broad feature set'
Excellent high ISO image quality, Shoots at 8.1fps
Delivers great performance, weather-resistant build quality

Pros: Price, rugged build quality.
'Ultimately the K-S1 is a very capable camera that, ironically, is let down by some of the very aspects intended to make it stand out. '
'The K-S1 is also noticeably heavier, which exacerbates my difficulties holding it comfortably, but if you have small hands, you may actually prefer the size of the K-S1.'
'Images become distinctly scrappy at the highest ISOs.'
'Not very user-friendly.'
'Disappointing video features'
'The built-in pop-up flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and adequate overall exposure. '
