High-performance viewfinder

Optical viewfinder featuring a glass pentaprism

With an approximately 100% field of view and nearly 0.95-times magnification (with an FA 50mm F1.4 lens set at infinity), the PENTAX KF’s viewfinder provides a large sharp view of the subject, allowing you to capture it exactly the way you want. With very little aberration even at the corners of the image field, it assures excellent ease of viewing in many different photographic situations.

Vari-angle LCD monitor

For flexible outdoor shooting

The vari-angle LCD monitor allows you to position it at any desired angle, making image composition easier in a wide variety of situations: 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.

SR (Shake Reduction)

Effective shake reduction with all lenses, assuring optimum compensation effects

The PENTAX KF features the PENTAX-original, in-body SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a compensation effect of 4.5 shutter steps.* It works effectively with all PENTAX interchangeable lenses – from wide-angle to telephoto models – and minimizes camera shake in shake-prone conditions, such as when shooting low-light scenes with ambient light only, using a telephoto lens, or photographing sunset scenes.

* Measured in conformity with CIPA testing standards (using the smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mmF3.5-5.6ED AL [IF] DC WR lens, at a focal length of 135mm)
