Product Features in Detail
World’s smallest* DSLR with a weather-resistant and dustproof construction and vari-angle LCD monitor
The smallest size in its class is achieved at an approximate width of 122.5 mm and thickness of approximately 72.5 mm. Despite this size, it features a weather-resistant and dustproof construction and avari-angle LCD monitor for shooting with any framing.*On DSLR cameras with a dust and weather-resistant construct ion.
Superb performance and image quality so you never miss the beauty of the outdoors
All aspects of this model have been thoroughly considered to achieve a true DSLR form and they have been polished to bring out their true strengths, from the approximate 100% viewfinder coverage of the optical viewfinder, to the high-performance autofocus for easy shooting of moving subjects and in dark situations, and the AA-filter-free design giving absolute priority to image quality.
Enjoy sharing more easily with Wi-Fi and NFC
This model is Wi-Fi ready. With the dedicated smartphone app, you can shoot remotely, transfer and view images, and upload to social networking services from the palm of your hand. In addition, you can pair your NFC compatible smartphone with it just by waving your smartphone over the camera.
In-body shake reduction (SR)
This camera employs the original shake reduction (SR) mechanism. It effectively reduces camera shake with all lenses, from ultra-wide angle to super-telephoto. Using SR with an image stabilization effect of 3.5 stops*1, the camera automatically applies horizontal correction*2 for countering minute horizontal tilting that occurs when pressing the shutter button. It is also equipped with a DR (Dust Removal) cleaning function that uses high-speed SR vibration to remove dust from the image sensor.
* Complies with CIPA standards (Uses f = 135mm,smc PENTAX DA18-135mm F3.5-5.6ED AL [IF] DC WR)
* The maximum angle that can be corrected is ±1.5 when SR is off and ±1 when SR is on.
Perfect in the dark and when shooting moving subjects. The high-precision AF system. SAFOX X
This camera is equipped with the SAFOX X AF system. In addition to a high-sensitivity AF sensor that is perfect for shooting in the dark, it is equipped with a diffractive lens in the optical system.
Chromatic aberrations are kept to an absolute minimum and focus detection accuracy is increased
Algorithms are used to increase AF speed even further.
20M CMOS image sensor
The effective pixels of this camera are approx. 20.12 megapixel. To give further priority to resolution, it does not use an AA-filter. This enables capturing the finest details for expressing the beautiful imaging performance through colors with a sense of transparency.
AA (anti-aliasing) Filter Simulator
The AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator is the technology using shake reduction (SR) mechanism that achieves the same effect as an optical AA filter. The image sensor is driven in minute increments during exposures to significantly reduce false colors and moiré. This single camera has the benefit of two: one equipped with an AA-filter and one without an AA-filter.
*Sufficient effects are obtained when shooting at shutter speeds slower than 1/1000 sec. This function cannot be used when taking “HDR” photos.
Use image creation functions for more individual movies. Full HD movie
You can utilize the advantage of the SLR that you can interchange with various lenses to capture charming Full HD movies. You also can use the electronic shake reduction and digital filters when recording movies as well. These features result in movies with both a personality of their own and excellent image quality.
Enjoy more freedom in photos. Versatile drive functions
This model is equipped with a variety of drive functions for expanding the possibilities of expression. Enhanced features such as multi-exposure and post-shooting image compositing are available.
In-camera RAW processing
Process and adjust parameters using only the camera.
Buffer RAW save
Save the final data when shooting JPEGS in RAW format.
Digital Camera Utility 5
Put high-grade finishing touches on images with this included software.
This included software lets you process RAW data as well as save JPEG and TIFF formats. This software uses the popular SILKYPIX® engine. With this, you can take your time to add the perfect finishing touches to your creations.
