The expected Kodak Pixpro S-1 finally made its debut on 2014-06-24, bringing with it a completely new set of powerful specs compared with its predecessor. The sensor is packed with 16 megapixels and come with good ISO range, double-quick burst mode, and low-level noise. If you can afford one, you’re very unlikely to be disappointed. The camera comes with a surprising selection of lenses, which will allow you to make the most of its capabilities. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. All the information you can see on 3″ display with intuitive user interface. Capture extraordinary high resolution photos with high-speed continuous shooting up to 5.0 fps. The display performs well in bright light and is very high-res (920k dots dots). One of the biggest reasons to switch to the Kodak Pixpro S-1 from previous-generation cameras is the improved autofocus system with a large 25 detection points.

Precise AF detection is critical to sharply render every pixel of the Kodak Pixpro S-1 massive 16 megapixels resolution count. In addition, the Kodak Pixpro S-1 is also capable of recording 4K video whereas the previous models maxed out at 1080p Full HD capture this means that your videos will look sharp and very smooth. The camera have built-in Wi-Fi as standard. This means you can connect them to your smartphone, transfer images from the camera to phone, and then use your phone’s mobile data functionality to upload your images to social media after they’ve been taken. Don't let its small size fool you - the Kodak Pixpro S-1 is a modern photography tool capable of delivering lifelike photos without breaking a sweat. The Kodak uses favorite SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Fast, solid and available in increasingly large quantity. Most notably, while it may look like just another Rangefinder-style mirrorless, Kodak has packed a large number of firsts into the Kodak Pixpro S-1 powerful camera body. Almost every available surface of the body is covered with buttons, dials and switches. While buttons and controls fall in the same place as previous Kodak Pixpro S-1 models, some of their functions have been re-assigned as part of the overhaul to the user-interface. Kodak cameras have numerousness lenses and amazing accessories and a surprising number of grips available for them. Images were generally lifelike and stunning, particularly at lower ISO settings, although images do appear a bit matted than some of its competition. Besides, paired with the excellent array of Four Thirds popular Kodak lenses, the top-tier impressive is capable of telling any story you can imagine. Still, the Kodak Pixpro S-1 is an spurious, superb and versatile DSLR camera. Furthermore, the Kodak Pixpro S-1 is a Kodak camera, and if you've been waiting for top-grade to beef up supply numbers before taking the plunge, then we think stunning could be the choice. The Kodak Pixpro S-1 3″-inch super-sharp 920k dots LCD monitor automatically adjusts LCD brightness and visibility according to your environment. The Kodak Pixpro S-1 ships from 2014-06-24, priced at 9.99. This specially designed drone unit can also be a good choice for gift to someone you really love.
