The K-1 Mark II’s rugged body is positively bristling with advanced features
Dual SD Twin SD card slots are found behind a door on the handgrip. You can either record to them sequentially, back up files to both simultaneously, or record raws to one and JPEGs to the other. GPS In addition to geotagging your images, the GPS can record a log of your travels during the day. It’s turned on and off using a small button on the side of the pentaprism. Battery The externally charged D-LI90 battery is good for 670 shots per charge, which is relatively low for a DSLR but should still be enough for most purposes Illumination Strategically placed LEDs can be used to light up the lens mount, card slots, remote release connector and rear controls, via the top-plate button. This can be a real aid to low-light shooting. LCD panel A small display on the top plate displays shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation and battery status. It can be lit up by pressing the nearby button. IR receivers A port for an infrared remote control is built into the front of the handgrip. Unusually, and usefully, there’s a second on the back for when you’re working from behind the camera. Connectors A rubber cover on the side protects HDMI, USB and power-in ports. Headphone and microphone sockets are found above, with a PC flash connector on the side of the prism. The 2.5mm remote release port is on the other side.
