To take full advantage of the increasing capability of high-resolution image sensors in cameras such as the K100D, PENTAX engineers developed Shake Reduction. The mechanism moves the 6.1 megapixel charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed using magnetic force. Two Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) gyroscopes detect camera shake and a dedicated processing unit determines the adjustment required to stabilize the image sensor. With Shake Reduction, photographers can take sharp pictures at a shutter speed that is 2 to 3.5 stops slower, for example 1/15 sec instead of 1/60 sec with a standard lens.
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
