The K-1 assures the highest level of resolving power and sensitivity

35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor Exceptional imaging power assured by a large-format sensor

The K-1 incorporates a newly developed 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor, one that assures the highest image quality to be found in the K-mount SLR series. Thanks to its large imaging area and wide pixel pitch, this high-pixel sensor delivers lively, true-to-life images with rich gradation and minimal noise. Its shallow depth of field allows you to control the sense of depth and bokeh (defocused) effect at will.

Approximately 36.4 effective megapixelsExceptional resolving power supported by a high-resolution, AA-filter-free design

Thanks to its approximately 36.4 effective megapixels, the K-1 delivers breathtaking, true-to-life images—the kind that will seize the viewer’s imagination. Its exceptional resolving power captures each leaf of a distant tree or every drop of a spray in the finest detail. Since it provides image data large enough to produce a brilliant A2-size print (at 300dpi), the photographer is assured of great flexibility in image composition, either by cropping the image during shooting, or trimming the captured image during processing. By processing large volumes of data with its 14-bit image-processing system, the K-1 delivers beautiful, rich-gradation images.

AA-filter-free design, to optimize resolving power

An optical AA (anti-aliasing) filter will affect the camera’s image resolving power, even though it will help reduce moiré and false color. The K-1 incorporates an AA-filter-free design to optimize the image resolving power of its high-pixel image sensor.

PRIME IV A new imaging engine optimized for a 35mm full-frame image circle

The K-1 features a newly designed PRIME IV imaging engine. Compared with the previous PRIME III version, it is fine-tuned to process higher-resolution images, while boosting the operating frequency by nearly 50 percent. Its noise-processing algorithm has also been upgraded to capture beautiful, fine-gradation images at higher sensitivities. A combination of an advanced scene analysis system and new image-processing functions helps improve the accuracy and reliability of image reproduction.

PRIME Ⅳ

ISO 204800 A combination of super-high sensitivity and exceptional image resolution

By taking full advantage of the image sensor excelled in noise-resistance performance and the PRIME IV imaging engine, the K-1 provides a top sensitivity of ISO 204800 (at standard output sensitivity). This not only delivers high-resolution images free of tone jumps and graininess at high-sensitivity settings, but also improves image quality in the low-sensitivity range. Since the K-1 allows you to raise the sensitivity level to capture images equal in image quality to those taken at lower sensitivities, it expands the boundaries of photographic expression.

Pixel Shift Resolution System
Reproduction of true-to-life, super-high-resolution images beyond actual pixels

Reinforced with the SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, the K-1’s 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, super-high-resolution composite image. Compared to the conventional Bayer system, this innovative system obtains all RGB color data in each pixel to deliver beautiful images with far more truthful colors and much finer details, without any hint of false color. This system also reduces high-sensitivity noise to a minimum. The difference in image quality is evident at a glance, even without magnifying the captured image on a computer screen or producing a large-size print. Images captured by the Pixel Shift Resolution System can be saved as RAW-format files. You can developed these files within the camera body while adjusting various parameters or turning the Pixel Shift Resolution effect on and off to create a new image.

  • When using this system, the user is advised to stabilize the camera firmly on a tripod during shooting by setting the drive mode to self-timer or remote control, or using the mirror lock-up function.
  • When the subject is on the move or camera shake occurs, the desired effect may not be obtained.

*Images are for representation purpose only.

Motion Correction function 

When shooting an image with the Pixel Shift Resolution System, the K-1 provides a new Motion Correction function. When this function is activated, the camera automatically detects the amount of subject motion during continuous shooting and minimizes negative effects during the synthesizing process.*

* The movement may not be sufficiently corrected when the subject is moving in certain directions and/or patterns. This function does not guarantee that the movement will be properly corrected for all subjects.

AA filter simulator
State-of-the-art mechanism to optically minimize moiré and false color

By using the camera’s SR mechanism to apply microscopic vibrations to the image sensor, the PENTAX-original AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator* effectively minimizes moiré and false color along the image’s edges, which are common problems when shooting subjects with minute patterns. The K-1 allows you to faithfully reproduce your creative intention on a captured image, either by simulating the AA-filter effect for well-balanced images or by opting for the AA-filter-free mode for greater resolving power.

  • This function works most effectively with a shutter speed of 1/1000 second or slower.
  • This function may not be combined with some shooting modes.

Diffraction Correction
Minimizing diffraction blur at small apertures

This function compensates for the drop in resolving power caused by the diffraction during image processing. Based on obtained image data, it provides an exposure compensation of up to approximately two aperture steps,* making it useful for such subjects as landscapes, which requires you to close down the aperture to widen a depth of field without compromising the resolving power.

  • Measured under RICOH IMAGING in-house testing standards. This function can be used with D FA-, DA-, DA L-, and FA-series lenses, with an exception of some incompatible lenses.

 

Lens Aberration Correction and Fringe Compensation*High-quality image reproduction across the image field, with effective compensation of aberrations

The K-1 effectively compensates for the distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration caused by specific lens properties, and captures high-quality images with edge-to-edge sharpness. It even compensates for the fringe effect during RAW-data development.

  • Available in combination with D FA-, DA-, DA L- and FA-series lenses. However, some of these lenses may not be compatible with these functions.

Fine Sharpness and Extra SharpnessSharpness-enhancing tools to greatly improve the image rendition of high-pixel photography

No matter how many pixels and how much resolving power an image sensor may provide, the captured image can appear as a low-resolution image if the subject is outlined with thick lines. The K-1’s Fine Sharpness function outlines the subject with thinner, more natural lines than those created by normal processing to produce a high-quality, fine-detailed image. It allows you to create a fine piece of art, with a true-to-life description of the subject. The K-1 also provides an Extra Sharpness function, which emphasizes the subject’s outline more prominently with much finer lines, making it particularly useful for enhancing the outline of a low-contrast subject.

 

The K-1 overcomes challenging field conditions, such as poor weather, darkness and freezing temperatures.

SR II in-body shake reduction mechanism  The world’s first five-axis, five-shutter-step camera shake compensation*

The PENTAX-original sensor-shift-type shake reduction mechanism has been upgraded to provide optimum compensation for all lenses used in handheld shooting. The new-generation SR II (Shake Reduction II) features a five-axis mechanism to compensate for camera shake caused by horizontal and vertical shift** (often generated in macro photography) and camera shake caused by roll, which is difficult to handle by lens-installed shake reduction mechanisms, in addition to more common camera shake caused by pitch and yaw. The SR II unit is controlled with great precision as soon as the camera’s power is turned on, and provides a wide compensation range — as much as five shutter steps*** — to expand the limits of handheld shooting.

  • For a 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera, as of February 2016 (based on RICOH IMAGING research).
  • *During Live View shooting, this mechanism does not compensate for camera shake caused by horizontally and vertical shift.
  • ** Measured in conformity to CIPA standards, using an HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6ED DC WR lens at a focal length of 105mm.

Compatible with panning shots

When taking a panning shot, this mechanism efficiently controls the SR unit to detect only the direction of the camera’s movement, while compensating for all other affecting vectors. Because of this, the K-1 captures beautiful, high-resolution images both in normal shooting and panning photography, without requiring any switching operation.

Flexible Tilt-Type LCD monitor Innovative mechanism to tilt the monitor to any desired angle along the optical axis

Aiming at aligning the photographer’s line of sight precisely with the camera’s optical axis while providing a flexible angle adjustment, PENTAX has designed an ideal LCD monitor for the K-1 by creating an innovative mechanism that supports the monitor with four stays. This monitor has reached two difficult goals that conventional monitors have failed to attain: no deviation from the optical axis; and unrestricted tilt in all directions, horizontally or vertically. You can even tilt it up to a nearly 90-degree angle for low-angle and waist-level photography.

・Vertical tilt: approx. 44°

(Waist-level shooting: approx. 90°)

・Horizontal tilt: approx. 35°

 

Air Gapless LCD monitor

Clarity control and Skin Tone correction* Compensation of the subject’s texture, while retaining the image’s overall sharpness

The Clarity control function is an image-processing technology effective in reproducing the glossy texture of metals and the clearness of the sky or splashing water. By adjusting the smoothness of a silky or shiny surface, it lets you control the quality of texture and the degree of clarity. The Skin Tone correction function** restores a tender texture and a healthy tone of the subject’s skin, while keeping the high-resolution rendition in its hair and clothing and in the background. It depicts your subject with smooth texture and healthy skin tones.

  • Both of these functions are technologies developed by RICOH Co., Ltd.
  • * The Skin Tone correction function can be activated only when the Face Detection mode is selected.

 

HDRFaithful reproduction of highlights and shadows

The K-1’s HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode* delivers an image similar to that detected by the naked eye, by minimizing white-washed highlights and pitch-black shadows, even with extreme high-contrast scenes. It also allows you to set a range of exposure shifts or use the Automatic Position
