100 Trade-In Bonus When You Purchase A Pentax K-1

It's out with the old and in with the new this Christmas, as Pentax offer you a spectacular seasonal deal on the brand new K-1 DSLR when you trade in your old kit.

Until 31 December 2016, you'll get a £100 trade-in bonus when you trade in your old camera for a K-1 at official Pentax retailers.

The Pentax K-1 is a full-frame, 36-megapixel camera with a weather sealed body and unique tilting screen. With an ISO range of 100 204800, the camera is guaranteed to get you a great shot no matter what the lighting conditions.

The Flextilt screen both tilts and rotates and, with a 1037k dot resolution plus a gapless design, you'll be able to see it no matter the angle or how bright your surroundings are.

No matter what kit you currently own, there are many benefits to trading in for the K-1. The 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor gives images with rich gradation and minimal noise. The camera also has an AA-filter-free design, to optimise the resolving power of the high pixel image sensor.

The K-1 has a shake reduction mechanism, to help you get sharper hand-held shots. The system also aids in the Pixel Shift resolution technology used to capture super high resolution images. The technology works by capturing 4 images of the same scene and shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image. The images are then combined to create one stunning capture. This allows the K-1 to capture all the colour detail in each pixel, delivering true to life images.

Take advantage of the £100 trade-in bonus today at your local retailer and secure yourself a Pentax K-1.

IRIX 15MM F/2.4 A New Wide-Angle Manual Lens

This year, the photographic market welcomed Irix - a new brand of wide-angle manual lenses designed in Switzerland and manufactured in South Korea. The company employs passionate engineers and photographers who propose in their products a combination of smart technology and handy design. Recently Irix released its first lens, The Irix15mm f/2.4 in two versions Blackstone (premium) and Firefly (standard). Irix say it is the most innovative manual focus lens designed for DSLR cameras.

With reference to the fact that both versions have exactly the same optical performance, the only difference between them is their finishing. Irix 15mm f/2.4 consists of a very complex optical construction based on 15 elements in 11 groups, its interior crystal glass lenses offer only 2% distortion and a 110-degree angle of view. The exterior materials vary; on the Blackstone lens there is a magnesium and aluminium alloy with markings engraved with UV reactive paint while the Firefly is constructed from a high-quality lightweight material and markings are printed in a standard way.

Being a fully manual lens, the ability to simultaneously transfer distance and aperture status to the camera gives you the opportunity to use the latest features for your gear. In both versions of the Irix15mm f/2.4, many ingenious solutions are included such as; Focus Lock system, Infinity Click on hyperfocal scale, focus calibration and front/rear filter options. Moreover, the Irix 15mm f/2.4 is resistant against extreme weather conditions thanks to its weather sealed construction, which protects the interior against dust, moisture and accidental water splashes.

With that in mind, Irix lenses are a perfect tool for landscape and architecture photography, nightscape photography, photojournalism and for sports photographers. For more information about these lenses, take a look at the Irix website.

A CHRISTMAS GIFT OF FREE UK DELIVERY

During Christmas, Irix will be offering a special gift to those interested in purchasing the Irix 15mm f/2.4 free delivery to UK customers.
