Colour Name:Black The PENTAX K-50 boasts outstanding basic
specifications that rival many models, including high-speed continuous
shooting at approximately six images per second, super-high-sensitivity
shooting at ISO 51200, and high-precision AF with accurate tracking of moving
subjects. This means that new digital SLR users and casual family
photographers can enjoy high-quality digital photography with very little
effort. The K-50 also features a weather-resistant, dustproof construction to
assure solid performance under demanding outdoor conditions, and also to
reduce the need for maintenance. It even provides a wide range of advanced
shooting features, such as full HD movie recording and a selection of creative
tools such as digital filters, to accommodate various shooting requirements.
view larger High-resolution, super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 51200 The
K-50 features the state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor with a large image
capturing area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm, to assure high-speed image data
readout. This image sensor is coupled with PRIME M, the same high-performance
imaging engine incorporated in upper-class models to deliver super-high-
resolution, rich-gradation digital images with approximately 16.28 effective
megapixels. The K-50 also offers super-high-sensitivity shooting at a top
sensitivity of ISO 51200, allowing the photographer to handhold the camera for
beautiful night-time snapshots. view larger Reliable weather-resistant,
dustproof body Thanks to the 81 seals set in its compact, lightweight,
portable body, the K-50 is built to be weather-resistant, dustproof and cold-
resistant, even at temperatures as low as -10°C. This means that the K-50 can
be taken along on outdoor activities such as camping, mountaineering and
sports, for the joy of high-quality digital SLR photography without worrying
about weather conditions. Its compact, functional body is carefully contoured
with delicate curves, assuring that even a photographer with a small hand will
have a firm grip of the camera. view larger Innovative SR mechanism The
PENTAX-developed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism effectively compensates the
adverse effect of camera shake to deliver sharp, blur-free images, even under
shake-prone conditions such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the
dark without flash illumination, or taking landscapes at twilight. 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, which tilts the image sensor unit in all directions, the K-50
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 both to
horizontal and vertical directions, as well as slant-wise rotation; and an
ASTRO TRACER mode to simplify astronomical photography in combination with the
optional O-GPS1 GPS Unit (sold separately). view larger High-precision
autofocus with SAFOX IXi+ AF module The K-50 features the state-of-the-art
SAFOX IXi+ AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision
autofocus operation with 11 sensors (including nine cross-type sensors in the
middle). It also features a spot beam projector to assist AF operation at
poorly lit locations. Its select-area expansion function keeps the sensor
module tracking a moving subject, even when it moves out of a pre-assigned
auto-tracking area, by assessing the distance data collected by neighbouring
focus sensors. This means not only greatly improved accuracy and speed of
detecting moving subjects during autofocus operation, but also the enhanced
auto-tracking performance of moving subjects when using a telephoto lens. view
larger High-speed continuous shooting, at approximately six images per second
When shooting sports, stage performances or wildlife, the K-50’s high-speed
continuous shooting function comes in handy. It allows the photographer to
record active, fast-moving subjects in a series of images, at a maximum speed
of approximately six images per second (in the JPEG recording format). High-
quality movie recording The K-50 captures high-resolution, full HD movie clips
(1920 x 1080 pixels) in the H.264 recording format, with a choice of frame
rate (30, 25 or 24 frames per second). It even comes with creative image-
processing tools like Custom Images and useful movie-recording features like
an interval movie recording function, for the production of more personalised
movies. view larger Optical finder with approximately 100% field of view
Despite a compact body common to all entry-class models, the K-50 features a
glass prism finder with nearly 100% field of view and approximately 0.92-times
magnification (with a 50mm F1.4 lens at infinity) to cover the entire field of
view for easy focusing and framing. Since it delivers a clear view of the
subject even in bright sunshine and eliminates parallax and time lag in the
viewfinder image, the K-50 responds efficiently and reliably to demanding
applications and subjects, such as landscapes requiring delicate, high-
precision framing, and sports scenes where the timing of shutter release is
critical. The in focus point is indicated as a red point in the viewfinder for
at-a-glance confirmation. Effortless, user-friendly Auto Picture and Scene
modes The PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode automatically selects the most
appropriate shooting mode for a given subject or scene from Portrait,
Landscape, Macro and other distinctive shooting modes. Since the K-50 sets all
vital camera settings — including shutter speed, aperture, white balance,
saturation, contrast and sharpness — the photographer can concentrate on image
composition and shutter opportunity. The K-50 also offers 19 Scene modes,
including Night Scene Portrait, Pet and Backlight Silhouette, to simplify the
photographing of subjects and scenes that could be too complicated or
demanding for entry digital SLR photographers, by optimising all camera
settings with a simple choice of the corresponding icon on the camera’s LCD
monitor. A selection of image-processing tools for creative, personalised
expression The K-50’s custom image function allows the user to easily and
quickly select the desired finishing touch for a particular image, with a
choice of 11 custom images. These include Bleach Bypass to create a dramatic
visual effect used in motion pictures, and Cross Process to produce fanciful,
eye-catching images with dramatic colours. The K-50 also provides 19 digital
filters to add distinctive visual effects to captured images and produce
creative, artistic images without the need for a computer. The user can even
explore new creative possibilities by applying multiple filters to a single
image. view larger Choice of two power sources In addition to the standard
rechargeable lithium-ion battery capable of capturing approximately 480 images
with a single recharge, the K-50 can also be powered by four AA-size batteries
using the optional D-BH109 AA Battery Holder (sold separately). Since AA-
size batteries can be easily obtained almost anywhere around the world,
there’s no worry about battery shortages, even when on the road. Other
