Super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 51200 to capture low-light scenes and freeze fast-moving subjects

The K-50 oers super-high-sensitivity shooting with a top sensitivity of ISO 51200 (when expanded) to record well -defined images with minimal noise. You can handhold the K-50 to capture nightscapes without the help of a flash or tripod. With active subjects such as athletes, pets and stage performers, you can raise the shutter speed to prevent subject shake.


Auto Picture mode for hands-off selection of the best shooting mode

When the mode dial is set to the AUTO position and the shutter release button is pressed, the K-50’s Auto Picture mode automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode for a given subject or scene — such as Portrait, Landscape or Moving Object — and optimizes all camera settings, assuring beautiful results, even for SLR beginners.


Scene modes to produce professional-quality images with ease

With its 19 scene modes, the K-50 automatically optimizes camera and exposure settings for a particular scene or subject to produce a beautiful, professional-quality image.

PRIME M imaging engine with 16.28 effective megapixels to deliver true-to-life, high-resolution images

The K-50 features a large APS-C-size CMOS image sensor to produce a beautiful bokeh effect. With approximately 16.28 effective megapixels, this sensor performs superbly in high-sensitivity ranges, while minimizing annoying noise. The PENTAX-original PRIME M imaging engine then makes the best use of the image data collected by the sensor. It raises the sensitivity to as high as ISO 51200 to compensate for the graininess of low-light scenes, while applying delicate processing to the subject’s outlines, to produce natural, true-to-life images.

The K-50 Brings Inspiration and Excitement to Active Photographers

Large, easy-to-view viewfinder with nearly 100% 
field of view and 0.92-times magnification

Thanks to the incorporation of a high-quality glass pentaprism, the K-50’s optical viewfinder offers an approximately 92% magnification to assure a large, clear view of the subject — even with the fast-moving subjects found in sports. In addition, the viewfinder offers a nearly 100% field of view for quick, accurate image composition.

Glass pentaprism


11-point AF for speedy, pinpoint focusing 
on the subject

With its 11 sensor points, the K-50’s AF system lets you compose the image exactly the way you like it. It features nine cross-type sensors in the middle for accurate, unfailing detection of the subject.


77-segment multi-pattern metering for faithful 
reproduction of high-contrast scenes

The K-50’s advanced metering system makes extremely accurate measurement of illumination levels across the image field. By assessing such factors as the camera’s alignment (horizontal or vertical), the subject’s distance and position, and the lens’s magnification, it then calculates the optimum exposure level for a given scene, assuring the best balance between subject and background, highlights and shadows. The K-50 also offers the option of center-weighted and spot metering.


Light distribution of 77-segment 
multi-pattern metering

Select-area expansion to track 
a moving subject

When photographing a moving subject in the AF.C (Continuous) mode, this function keeps tracking the subject even when it moves away from a pre-assigned select point by assessing the distance data collected by neighboring focus sensors. This prevents erroneous focusing on the background.


SAFOX IX i+ AF module 
for exceptional autofocusing accuracy

The K-50 features the state-of-the-art SAFOX IX i+ as its AF module. It assures extra-accurate autofocusing by minimizing chromatic aberrations within the module with the use of a refraction lens. Its light source sensor also compensates for the minute focusing errors caused by the different wavelengths of various sources. Because of this, the K-50 captures the subject in sharp, crisp focus, even under artificial light sources.

1/6000-second high-speed shutter to 
freeze the action

With its top speed of 1/6000 second, the K-50’s high-speed shutter lets you freeze the split-second action of fast-moving subjects, such as athletes and pets. When shooting in bright sunshine, it also lets you open up an aperture to intentionally throw the background out of focus without overexposing the subject.

High-speed burst shooting at six images per second for the best shot of a moving subject

The K-50’s burst shooting mode captures a maximum of six images in a single second.* Whether it’s composition, focus or expression, this mode gives you a better chance of capturing the best shot of a moving subject within a series of recorded images.


DR mechanism to always keep the image sensor clean

The surface of the CMOS image sensor is treated with PENTAX-original SP (Special Protect) coating to minimize the clinging of dust. Any dust that does adhere to the surface is then effectively removed by the DR (Dust Removal) mechanism, which shakes the dust off the sensor using high-speed vibration to prevent any annoying dust spot from appearing on captured images.

Weather-resistant, dustproof, 
cold-resistant body for dependable 
performance even in harsh conditions

Since the K-50 features a dependable weather-resistant, dustproof construction, you can bring the camera along for all kinds of picture-taking, regardless of location or weather. Thanks to cold resistance down to -10°C, you can even use it for mid-winter outdoor shooting.

Distribution of seals
Note: Battery performance will deteriorate as the temperature at the shooting location falls. For shooting in cold locations, we advise carrying spare batteries, and keep them warm by storing them in a warm spot of your outfit.

WR/AW-series lenses** for all-weather, all-location shooting

Newly added to the WR series, the DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6AL WR and DA L 50-200mm F4-5.6ED WR lenses feature a simplified weather-resistant construction to repel a light splash of water. A selection of the DA AW series featuring a more rugged weather-resistant, dustproof construction is also available. By coupling the K-50 with any of these lenses, you can create a highly dependable, all-weather digital imaging system.

The K-50 Provides a Range of Creative Tools for Personalized Expressions

Digital filters for easy image modifications

A digital filter can change the tone or gradation of your image to give it a more striking impression. You can choose one of seven filters during shooting, or apply one of 19 filters later to a recorded image. You can experiment with different filters until you find the desired visual effect. You can even apply multiple filters to a single image, or fine-tune the parameters of a specific filter to explore your own creative possibilities.


Recording of Full HD and interval movies, 
with a choice of creative tools

The K-50 captures beautiful Full HD movie clips (at 30 frames per second, in MPEG-4 format). You can add various visual effects using custom images and digital filters, and also remove unwanted segments using simple-to-use editing tools. The K-50 also provides the interval movie mode, which captures a series of movie clips at a fixed interval, then edits them into a single movie (in Motion JPEG). This mode lets you dramatize familiar, everyday events, such as the blossoming of a flower, by compressing the progress of the event into a shorter timeframe.

Note: The camera’s shake reduction mode is switched to digital movie SR during movie recording.

Flexible Live-View shooting, with easy tracking 

of the subject on the LCD monitor

Low-and high-angle shooting is often a troublesome task with the optical viewfinder. The K-50’s Live-View mode, however, makes it easier and more comfortable for you, since it lets you angle the camera more freely. It also allows you to more accurately visualize the final image (such as brightness and tone) on the LCD monitor. You can even take advantage of such handy tools as the Face Recognition AF mode and a grid display during Live-View shooting.

Note: Simulated image.

Multiple exposure for easy composition of 
dramatic images

You can tell a fascinating story simply by combining several scenes in a single image. The K-50 lets you compose a single picture from as many as nine separate images. During Live-View shooting, you can even check an existing composite image on the LCD monitor when framing the next image, for easy composition of the entire image.


HDR Shooting to prevent pitch-black shadows and whitewashed highlights

The K-50’s HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode works effectively in high-contrast scenes, as it captures three images at different exposure levels (normal, over and under), then selects the ideally exposed areas from these images to produce one extra-wide-gradation composite picture free of excessive shadows and highlights. With this mode, you can create an image with a gradation similar to human vision, or add a dynamic, artistic expression with exaggerated contrast.

Note: The HDR mode is available only in JPEG recording format. This mode is not selectable during RAW+ shooting.

The K-50 Lets You Capture Images in Your Style

Dual electronic dials for 
effortless fingertip control

A pair of electronic dials are strategically positioned — one at the front and another to the back of the camera grip — to allow instant shift of aperture and shutter speed with fingertip control. This intuitive control system makes picture-taking more fun and spontaneous than ever before.

An array of customization features to 
personalize camera operation

The most frequently used functions often differ from user to user. That’s why the K-50 offers the flexibility of assigning user-preferred functions to the two electronic dials and the RAW/Fx and AF/AE-L buttons. By assigning a function demanding frequent setting changes to your choice of dial or button, you are assured of speedy, intuitive control. You can also assign your favorite settings to the USER mode to eliminate the need to set individual functions separately.

Flexible exposure system for easy control of light 
and shadow, bokeh effect and subject motion

The K-50’s Hyper Program mode lets you choose one of the three auto-exposure modes (Program, Aperture-priority and Shutter-priority) without the need to turn the mode dial. The K-50’s comprehensive exposure control system also offers such options as the Metered Manual (with Hyper Manual control for simplified manual exposure operation), Sv (Sensitivity-priority) and TAv (Shutter and Aperture-priority) modes to satisfy individual preferences.

D-range setting for effective compensation of 
extreme highlights and shadows



Custom images to add distinctive 
finishing touches

The K-50’s custom image mode lets you choose the desired finishing touch for a captured image, from a choice of 11 custom images including Vibrant, Radiant and Bleach Bypass. With each custom image, you can make minute adjustment of the base parameters to further customize the effect.


Note: The base parameters of each custom image are adjustable, including saturation, hue, key, contrast, sharpness, filter effect (Monochrome only), tone (Bleach Bypass, Monochrome and Muted only).

Digital level for pinpoint detection of inclination

The high-precision digital level detects and indicates the horizontal and vertical inclination of the camera at a glance, useful for ensuring the precise horizontal or vertical alignment of the camera in landscape photography. In addition to the indication on the LCD monitor, the inclination is also displayed on the exposure bar scale in the viewfinder.***

*** Vertical inclination is not indicated on the viewfinder display.

Note: In the LCD monitor, horizontal inclination is indicated at bottom, while vertical inclination is displayed on the right.

Automatic horizon correction to compensate for a minute slant of the frame

Each time the shutter is released, the K-50 automatically compensates for any undetectable horizontal slanting of the image field. The camera detects its inclination at the moment of exposure, then rotates the CMOS image sensor to a level position using the SR mechanism. This function comes in handy during handheld shooting, when the photographer often tilts the camera unintentionally.
Note: The maximum compensation angle is ±1.5 degrees with SR on, or ±1 degree with SR off.

Composition adjustment to make fine framing 

This function allows you to make minute adjustment of framing by rotating and/or shifting the CMOS image sensor without the need to remove the K-50 from a tripod. By eliminating the need to adjust the tripod, it makes framing adjustments speedy and effortless.

Compatibility with GPS unit for the tracking 
of nature and celestial bodies

The K-50 is compatible with the optional O-GPS1 GPS unit. When installed on the K-50 camera body, this unit records the latitude, longitude and altitude of a shooting location on a captured image for easy image filing and quick data search. It can also display an electronic compass to point the exact direction the camera is facing. It even offers the ASTROTRACER function, which automatically synchronizes the camera’s CMOS image sensor with the movement of celestial bodies based on the GPS data. As the result, you can capture faint stars as solid points, rather than blurry streaks.

Note: The Simple Navigation function is not available with the K-50.

Compatibility with Eye-Fi wireless LAN 
memory cards

Since the K-50 accepts Eye-Fi wireless LAN memory cards, you can make wireless transfer of captured images to a smartphone or personal computer. The user has a choice of Eye-Fi transfer mode from AUTO (automatic transfer of unsent images), SELECT (transfer of user-selected images) or OFF (no image transfer made).
