Ricoh has won 2 prestigious TIPA awards this year. 

The Pentax K-1 scooped 'Best full-frame DSLR for experts', while the Ricoh Theta S was named the best-designed product this year. 

The judges said: "PENTAX has entered the full-frame sensor market with the dustproof and weather-resistant K-1. The 36.4MP CMOS sensor has a “simulated” anti-aliasing filter achieved through minute sensor vibrations; this motion sensor also supports RICOH’s Pixel Shift Resolution system. The K-1 features 5-axis sensor shift image stabilisation, a near 100% optical viewfinder and a 33-point AF system with 25 cross points. The rear 3.2-inch 1.04 million dot LCD, is highly flexible and allows for vertical, horizontal and diagonal movement. Current PENTAX lens owners (APS-C) can utilise all of their lenses via the K-1’s Crop mode; Auto mode will detect the lens mounted and set the crop accordingly."

About the Ricoh Theta S, they said: "The slim and wearable design of the RICOH THETA S matches its unique image capture system. The THETA S has a 14MP 1:2.3-inch sensor/processor that delivers stills and videos with a 360-degree spherical look. It can record Full HD videos for up to 25 minutes and offers manual control of shutter speeds for settings up to 60 seconds. Its built-in memory can store up to 8GB of images. The camera allows easy sharing with incorporated Wi-Fi and can also be used for live streaming."
