Pentax KF DSLR Camera Kit (Black) with PENTAX DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR Lens

Super-high-resolution images captured with approximately 24.24 effective megapixels and at ISO 102400

The PENTAX KF assures super-high-resolution imaging with a state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.24 effective megapixels and high-speed 14-bit image data readout. Combined with an AA-filter-free optical design, this image sensor delivers super-high-resolution images. Also, by coupling a high-performance accelerator unit with the high-speed PRIME MII imaging engine, the PENTAX KF effectively minimizes noise at all sensitivity levels and captures rich-gradation, fine-detailed images even in super-high-sensitivity shooting at a top sensitivity of ISO 102400. Included with the Pentax KF is the PENTAX DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR Lens. This lens is a weather-resistant version of the original DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL.

Dustproof, weather-resistant body perfect for rugged outdoor photography

The PENTAX KF is a dependable performer, even in demanding settings such as rain, fog, or snow, or at locations prone to dust and freezing temperatures. Its compact, easy-to-carry body features dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 100 seals throughout the body and outstanding cold-proof performance at temperatures down to - 14°F (10°C).

Clear-view optical viewfinder

Within its compact body, the PENTAX KF incorporates a glass prism viewfinder featuring the same optics and coatings as those used in higher-level models. With its approximately 100% field of view and 0.95-times magnification, the viewfinder provides a large, clear view of the subject for quick, easy confirmation of focusing and framing.

Vari-angle LCD monitor for easy image viewing from all angles

The vari-angle LCD monitor allows the monitor to be positioned at the desired angle, making it easier to compose images in a wide variety of situations: applications: high-angle shooting using outstretched arms, low-angle shots taken from ground level or astrophotography with the camera pointed upwards toward a star-filled sky. It also features a unique air-gapless construction, in which the air space between the high-definition LCD panel (with approximately 1,037,000 dots) and the protective cover has been filled with a special resin material.

PENTAX-original SR (Shake Reduction) System featuring the Pixel Shift Resolution System

The built-in PENTAX-original SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism effectively minimizes camera shake and delivers sharp, blur-free images, even in conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting low-light scenes with ambient light only, or photographing sunset scenes. Using a high-accuracy gyro sensor, it provides a compensation effect of 4.5 shutter steps. The Pixel Shift Resolution System captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, then synthesizes them into a single composite image.

Hybrid AF system for high-speed AF operation during Live View shooting

The PENTAX KF employs the Hybrid AF system during Live View autofocus operation. By positioning a contrast-detection AF sensor with superior focusing accuracy and a phasematching AF sensor on the image sensor’s surface, this innovative hybrid system optimizes the benefits of both AF systems to assure high-speed, pinpoint AF focusing on the subject.

High-precision autofocus system with the SAFOX X module

The high-precision SAFOX X AF sensor module assures responsive, dependable autofocus operation. With its 11 sensors including nine cross-type sensors in the middle, this AF module assures pinpoint focus on the subject at a minimum brightness level as low as -3 EV. It also assures outstanding AF tracking performance with moving subjects, enabled by advanced features such as the Select-area Expansion function, which automatically refocuses on a moving subject after it moves away from the initial point, with the help of the neighboring points; and an AF Hold function that maintains the initial in-focus point.

An array of image processing functions

The PENTAX-developed Custom Image function lets the user process an image with the desired finishing touch to express their creative intention, or to suit the particular scene. This function provides 14 Custom Image modes, including: SATOBI, which reproduces the colors resembling those of color pictures in the 60s and 70s, with cyan-tinged blues, subdued yellows and faded reds; Bleach Bypass, which recreates the profound atmosphere of movie scenes; and Cross Processing, which adds fantastic, unusual colors to captured images. The PENTAX KF also includes the special-edition Custom Image modes KYUSHU and KATEN. In combination with PENTAX Limited-series lenses, which are popular for their distinctive image renditions, these Custom Image modes capture images with distinctive themes.

A host of interval shooting functions

The PENTAX KF provides a host of advanced interval shooting functions, including 4Kresolution Interval Movie, which allows recording a series of still images at a fixed interval and then linking them into a single 4K-resolution movie file; Star Stream Movie, which enables recording of the traces of stars or illuminations on a 4K-resolution movie file; and Interval Composite, which synthesizes a composite image with a choice of three synthesis modes (average, additive and comparative).

Design, features, and customization options

The PENTAX KF’s versatile design optimizes the ease of camera operation. The camera can be personalized to match the user’s shooting preferences by assigning their desired functions to the set of buttons and dials on the camera body. A double e-dial system which can be used to control the PENTAX-original Hyper operating system, allows the user to instantly shift the aperture or shutter-speed setting without taking their eye from the viewfinder.
