The K-1 takes greatness to the next level. As the first full frame DSLR engineered under the PENTAX brand, the K-1 brings outstanding performance, operability and affordability to photographers. With its large 36.4 megapixel CMOS image sensor, the K-1 incorporates all of the performance of a high-resolution full frame 35mm digital camera as well as all of the unique PENTAX-original features and technologies that photographers have become accustomed to, in a compact, rugged, weather-resistant body. The K-1’s newly designed, 14-bit PRIME IV image processing engine significantly improves processing speed, while an improved noise-processing algorithm provides unprecedented performance in shadows or low light shooting where high ISO settings are critical. The Pixel Shift Resolution System with new Motion Correction technology automatically detects and compensates for moving objects in the scene. The K-1’s SR II 5-axis Shake Reduction system provides consistent, precise operation of the larger full frame sensor with all compatible PENTAX interchangeable lenses. The newly designed SAFOX 12 33-point AF sensor includes 25 cross AF points and three F2.8 luminance flux linear sensors. The APS-C Crop Mode allows for use of APS-C sensor-designed lenses on the full frame K-1, giving photographers added flexibility in their lens options. With the built-in GPS with ASTROTRACER, easily track and photograph celestial objects. The Cross-Tilt LCD display offers the ultimate in LCD flexibility and is viewable from any angle, while the Operation Assist light function offers LED illumination on strategic locations of the camera body, for easier operation in challenging lighting conditions.
