  • 36.4 MP Full Frame Sensor

    36.4 MP Full Frame Sensor
    The K-1’s unique full frame sensor is an AA filterless design that prioritizes image resolution. Coupled with the new PRIME IV imaging engine, it features 14-bit RAW-format image recording capability and super-high-sensitivity shooting up to ISO 204800, producing stunning high-resolution images in any shooting environment.
    New SRII In-Camera Shake Reduction

    New SR II In-Camera Shake Reduction
    The SR II five-axis shake reduction mechanism is redesigned to operate flawlessly with the new large full frame image sensor. Because SR II shake reduction is body-based, it works with all full frame compatible PENTAX interchangeable lenses. SR II shake reduction automatically detects the direction of the camera’s movement, and efficiently controls the SR unit to always produce the best image possible.
    Pixel Shift Resolution System with Motion Correction

    Pixel Shift Resolution System with Motion Correction
    The K-1 uses the latest super-resolution technology allowing for sharp filterless performance, reducing moiré by capturing four images of the same scene, shifting the image sensor by a single pixel using SR II shake reduction technology, and then composing the four images into a single image. As SR II tilts the image sensor unit in all directions, it provides a host of handy additional shooting features, including auto level compensation and image-composition fine-adjustment.
  • SAFOX 12 with 33 AF Sensor Points

    SAFOX 12 with 33 AF Sensor Points
    The new SAFOX 12 AF sensor module features 33 AF sensors (25 cross-type sensors positioned in the middle). The center sensor and the two sensors located just above and below it are designed to detect the light flux of an F2.8 lens, making it easy to obtain pinpoint focus on a subject when using a large-aperture lens.
    The Unique PENTAX Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder

    Unique PENTAX Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder
    Newly developed for its 35mm full-frame design, the K-1’s optical viewfinder provides a nearly 100-percent field of view and an approximately 0.70-times magnification. A Natural Bright Matt III focusing screen allows ease of focusing and a true-to-life rendition of defocused areas in the viewfinder image.
    Crop Mode

    APS-C Crop Mode
    The K-1 features an APS-C Crop Mode that allows it to accommodate all PENTAX lenses developed for APS-C sensors. Therefore, current APS-C lens owners will retain full compatibility using their current APS-C lenses in the APS-C crop mode while taking full advantage of the many new features offered by the PENTAX K-1.
  • Operation Assist LED Lighting

    Operation Assist LED Lighting
    The operation assist light function provides LED lights above the lens mount, behind the LCD monitor, at the memory card slot, and at the cable switch terminal to facilitate fast and easy operation in low light environments.
    GPS/Electronic Compass/Astro Tracer

    GPS/Electronic Compass/Astro Tracer
    The GPS feature records shooting location, facing direction, and date and time into image data. Electronic Compass records the shooting direction, and Astro Tracer combines these features with SRII shake reduction to capture rock-steady images of heavenly objects in the night sky without streaking or blurring during long exposures.
    Weather Resistant and Dustproof Construction

    Weather Resistant and Dustproof Construction
    Constructed of sturdy yet lightweight magnesium alloy with the inclusion of 87 sealing parts in the body, the K-1 also boasts a dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant construction.
