Superb performance that lets you capture moving moments exactly as you see them.

Compose and focus exactly the way you want.
Optical viewfinder with approx. 100% field of view

This camera is equipped with a glass pentaprism optical viewfinder. The 0.95x viewfinder magnification* and approximate 100% viewfinder coverage is now achieved. With this feature, checking focus and composition is easy and you can shoot with focus on the subject.


1=CMOS Sensor

Camera shake is effectively reduced for any lens attached to 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.

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.

Fast AF performance even in dark scenes.
-3EV low-luminance AF

By using a high-sensitivity AF sensor, the AF low-luminance limit is expanded to -3EV (9 center sensors). This enables accurate AF even in dark locations and reduces the effects of bright sections in backlit conditions for accurate capturing of low-contrast subjects.

Accurately capture the subject you’re aiming for.
11 sensor (9 cross-type sensors) AF system

The 11 AF sensor points let you freely compose shots. Nine of these points are cross-type sensors that make it easier to catch subjects. The center AF points make it possible to focus in the most difficult situations, such as when using a large-diameter lens with a narrow depth of field.

*Nine cross-type sensors (  ) are positioned in the middle.
*In addition to Auto (11 points), there are other AF area selections such as Auto (5 points), Select, Expanded Area AF (during Continuous AF only), and Spot.

Use AF sensors over a wide area to capture moving subjects.
Expanded Area AF

When using Expanded Area AF, surrounding AF sensors will automatically be used even if the subject moves away from the selected AF sensor points. This technology lets you continuously capture moving subjects.

The AF sensor points move with the subject (superimpose moves as well).

Capture lively, split-second subject movement.
1/6000 sec. high-speed shutter

This camera is equipped with a 1/6000 sec. high-speed shutter. With it, you can capture split-second movements of active subjects in sharp detail.

Use continuous shooting and select the best shot afterward.
Approx. 5.5 fps 
high-speed continuous 

Up to approximately 5.5 fps high-speed continuous shooting is possible. Because the movement and expression that changes from moment to moment is captured continuously without missing a shot, you can select the best shot afterward.

Quickly control the depth of field and sense of movement.
Double e-dials

The camera body is equipped with two e-dials; one on the front and one on the rear. With the Pentax-original Hyper Control System, each of those dials can be used to instantly reflect the aperture and shutter speed, making quick exposure settings possible while looking through the viewfinder.

Quickly activate the function you want
Shooting modes

The mode dial is equipped with a full lineup of shooting modes. Two USER Modes are also available to register frequently-used settings for easy activation at any time.

●Shooting mode AUTO: (Auto Picture Mode), P: (Program), Sv: (Sensitivity Priority), Tv: (Shutter Priority), Av: (Aperture Priority), TAv: (Shutter & Aperture Priority), M: (Manual), B: (Bulb), U1: (USER Mode 1), U2: (USER Mode 2), A-HDR: (Advanced HDR Mode), SCN: (Scene Mode)

Easy-to-carry compact size.
World’s slimmest* 
standard zoom lens

The zoom lens part of the kit lens lineup is kept to 41mm when retracted, thanks to the newly-developed lens barrel mechanism. It has a focal length of 27.5 to 76.5mm (35mm equivalent). The camera is easy to take with you when this lens is attached, and the in-lens DC motor drive makes AF operation silent. It also features the same weather-resistant construction as the camera body.

smc PENTAX-DA L18-50mmF4-5.6 DC WR RE(in 35mm format equivalent : 27.5-76.5mm)

Never worry about sudden rain or outdoor conditions.
Weather-resistant/dustproof body

A weather-resistant/dustproof construction was employed for shooting outdoors. Sealing was used on 100 different locations, including buttons, dials, and covers, to prevent rain, water droplets, sand, and dust from getting into the camera.


Sharp resolution with a low-pass filterless design.
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.

Original technology significantly reduces false colors and moiré
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.

Advanced image processing for natural colors and high definition.

The latest original PRIME M II imaging engine is used on this camera. Together with the high-performance sensor, beautiful depiction with minimal roughness, transparent colors and a natural sense of details is possible even at high ISO sensitivity.

Maximize lens performance.Diffraction Correction, Lens Correction, Color Fringe Correction, and Color moiré Correction

The camera corrects various issues such as distortion and color bleeding due to lens characteristics, loss of peripheral light, and loss of resolution due to stopping down the aperture. A higher level of digital image quality is achieved through Color Fringe Correction during RAW development and Color Moiré Correction when editing images.

A more natural and realistic finish.Clarity Enhancement

Clarity Enhancement, the Ricoh-original image processing technology, is designed to fit human visual characteristics for imaging with a three-dimensional feel.
This technology gives images the finest textures overflowing with realism.


Excellent image quality with minimal noise even in dark scenes.Maximum ISO 51200

The high-performance CMOS image sensor and imaging engine make the ultra-high sensitivity of Maximum ISO 51200 possible. Noise is minimized even in dark locations for shooting without a tripod or flash.

The camera automatically determines settings even in scenes where the exposure is difficult.
77 Multi-segment metering

The screen is split into 77 segments for detailed contrast metering. The total exposure is then determined based on information such as subject position and distance. The correct exposure can be obtained even in backlit situations or scenes with a high amount of contrast.
* Center-weighted and spot metering are also available.

Picking up this camera will revolutionize how you enjoy photos.

Experience a new level of freedom in shooting.
Vari-angle LCD monitor

This camera is equipped with a vari-angle LCD monitor, so you can freely adjust the angle in any way. Expand the possibilities of Live View shooting by stretching your arms to shoot from a high angle, and getting down low to approach the subject from a low angle.
