Pentax K-30 The Pentax K-30 has been developed to help SLR beginners easily
capture high-quality 16 megapixel images with the assistance of its shake-
reduction technology; the PENTAX K-30 combines the size of an entry-level DSLR
with features more commonly found in advanced models. These features include a
weather-resistant, dustproof and cold-proof body and a glass prism finder with
nearly 100% field of view. It also offers high-speed shooting of six images
per second, a 1/6000 second high shutter speed, and a full-HD movie function.
Together with a comfortable grip and a sporty, functional design, the K-30
guarantees a dependable, flawless performance every time. The K-30 is
available in a choice of three colours: Crystal White and Crystal Blue both
with brilliant, glossy finishes; and Classic Black, for a more traditional SLR
look. High-resolution, low-noise, true-to-life image reproduction The K-30
delivers super-high-resolution images The K-30 incorporates the latest CMOS
image sensor with a large image-capture area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm. It
assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution, rich-
gradation digital images with 16.28 effective megapixels. This image sensor is
coupled with the PRIME M imaging engine for the recording of high-quality,
full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 30 frames per second). The camera
also minimises luminance noise at low sensitivities, while offering a wide
sensitivity range between ISO 100 and ISO 12800 (or even ISO 25600 when
expanded via a custom function). Sporty, functional design perfect for outdoor
shooting Weather Sealed, perfect for outdoor use Thanks to the 81 seals set in
its compact and lightweight body, the K-30 is built to be weather-resistant,
dustproof and cold-proof with proven functionality in temperatures as low as
-10°C making the K-30 perfect for outdoor use, whatever the weather. Its
exterior has been designed to be both sporty and functional for active outdoor
shooting: a large grip for a firm, secure hold of the camera; low-profile
pentaprism housing for reduced height; and a rounded, soft-rubber casing for
firm hold of the camera during vertical-position shooting. Optical finder with
nearly 100% field of view The K-30 is smaller and lighter than conventional
mid-level models. However, it comes equipped with a glass prism finder with
nearly 100% field of view and approximately 0.92times maximum magnification
(with a 50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity) to cover the entire field of view for
easy focusing and framing. It delivers a clear view of the subject even in
bright sunshine and eliminates parallax in the viewfinder image. The K-30
responds efficiently and reliably to demanding photographic situations, such
as landscapes requiring delicate, high-precision framing, and sports scenes
where the speed of the shutter release is critical. The K-30 accepts a PENTAX-
original Natural-Bright-Matte III focusing screen to facilitate manual-
focusing operation. The photographer can replace the standard focusing screen
with one of the alternative screens available, including cross-lined and scale
types, to accommodate more specialised photography. Newly developed SAFOX IXi+
AF module for improved autofocus performance The K-30 features the state-of-
the-art SAFOX IXi+ AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision
autofocus operation by incorporating a diffraction lens to minimise chromatic
aberration in accordance with the characteristics of each individual lens. It
also takes into account the light source at the time of shooting. Nine of its
11 sensor points have cross-type sensors to capture all kinds of subjects in
sharp focus, while its spot beam projector assists the AF system in poorly lit
locations. The K-3’s AF algorithm has also been upgraded in all areas. A new
select-area expansion function allows the sensor module to continue to track a
moving subject, even when it moves out of a pre-assigned auto-tracking area,
by assessing distance data collected by neighbouring focus sensors. High-speed
burst shooting at approximately six images per second High-speed burst
shooting at approximately six images per second The K-30’s high-speed burst
shooting function allows the photographer to record active, fast-moving
subjects in a series of images — at a maximum speed of six images per second
(in the JPEG recording format). Advanced Live View shooting with helpful
features Thanks to the latest CMOS image sensor and upgraded algorithm, the
K-30 offers a clear, true-to-life Live-View image (at 60 frames per second).
It also features a focus-assist function to improve manual-focusing accuracy,
as well as a choice of three grid display patterns including Golden Section.
Full HD Video Mode Full HD Video Mode The Pentax K-30 includes Full HD Video
Recording at 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) to capture high-quality movie clips.
It uses H.264 Codec Recording Format to offer a choice of frame rate (30, 25
or 24 fps in full HD and up to 60 fps in HD resolution). The K-30 also
includes in camera Video Editing and Interval Movie. The latter takes a series
of images at a specified interval and makes a video clip (3 seconds to 24 hr).
Effortless, user-friendly Auto Picture and Scene modes The K-30 features the
PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode, which automatically selects the most
appropriate shooting mode for a given subject or scene including Portrait,
Landscape, Macro and other distinctive shooting modes. This function will take
care of shutter speed, aperture, white balance, saturation, contrast and
sharpness. The K-30 also offers 19 Scene modes — including Night Scene
Portrait, Pet and Backlight Silhouette. PENTAX-original SR mechanism with
user-assisting functions PENTAX-original SR mechanism with user-assisting
functions The K-30 features the PENTAX-developed SR (Shake Reduction)
mechanism, which effectively reduces camera shake for sharp, blur-free images
even under demanding shooting conditions such as when using a telephoto lens,
shooting in the dark or at night without supplementary flash illumination.
This innovative mechanism works with almost all PENTAX interchangeable lenses
– even those developed for film-format cameras. Thanks to the SR mechanism’s
flexible design that tilts the image sensor unit in all directions, the K-30
offers several useful features to assist the photographer during shooting,
including: an Automatic Horizon Correction function to assure high-precision
image framing and effortless adjustment of horizontal alignment; a Composition
Adjustment function to allow minute adjustment of image alignment
horizontally, vertically and rotationally; and an ASTROTRACER mode, to
simplify astronomical photography in combination with the optional O-GPS1 GPS
Unit. A selection of image-processing tools for creative, personalised
expression The K-30 features the custom image function, which allows the user
to easily and quickly select the desired finishing touch for a particular
image. There is a choice of 11 custom images, including Bleach Bypass, to
create a dramatic visual effect used in motion pictures, and Cross Process to
produce an eye-catching image with dramatic colours. It also offers a choice
of 19 distinctive digital filters, including Miniature, which transforms an
actual scene into what appears to be an image of miniature models. These
filters add distinctive visual effects to captured images without the need for
a computer. The user can further expand the creative possibilities by applying
multiple filters to a single image This is on the K-30 Body only and not the
