  • ISO up to 51200
  • In-body shake reduction

High-resolution, super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 51200
The state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor with a large image-capturing area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm assures high-speed image data readout. This image sensor is coupled with PRIME M imaging engine to deliver super-high-resolution, rich-gradation digital images with approximately 16.28 effective megapixels. High sensitivity shooting up to ISO 51200 improves noise performance throughout, even in low lighting.

Fully Weather-sealed, Dustproof, Coldproof Body Design
With 81 weather seals throughout the entire body, the K-50 ensures worry-free use in any weather condition or outdoor setting, be it rain or sand. The K-50’s rugged, coldproof design is also perfect for use in wet, snowy winter conditions, at temperatures as low as -10°C

High-speed continuous shooting, at approximately six images per second
The K-50 allows you to record active, fast-moving subjects in a series of images, at a maximum speed of approximately six images per second (in the JPEG or DNG RAW recording formats). A maximum 1/6000 second shutter speed freezes sports and fast action without subject movement blur.

Versatile smc PENTAX DA L 18-55mm F3.5 – 5.6 AL WR lens covers from wide angle to short telephoto and can be used even in the rain so you never have to miss a picture, be it a landscape or a portrait. Aspheric lens elements and PENTAX smc coatings combine to deliver outstanding image quality.

Pentaprism Viewfinder for 100% Field of View
Despite its compact size, the K-50 features a glass prism finder with approximately 100% field of view and approximately 0.92-times magnification (with a 50mm F1.4 lens at infinity) to see the entire field of view for easy focusing and framing. It delivers a large clear view of the subject even in bright sunshine and eliminates parallax and time lag in the viewfinder image.

Innovative SR mechanism
The PENTAX-developed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism effectively compensates the adverse effect of camera shake to deliver sharp, blur-free images, even under shake-prone conditions such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, or taking landscapes at twilight. This innovative mechanism works with almost all PENTAX interchangeable lenses — even those developed for film-format cameras.* The K-50 offers several useful features to assist you during shooting, including an Automatic Horizon Correction function to assure high-precision image framing with level horizons; a Composition Adjustment function to allow minute adjustment of image alignment both to horizontal and vertical directions, as well as slant-wise rotation; and an ASTROTRACER mode to simplify astronomical photography in combination with the optional O-GPS1 GPS Unit.

Eye-Fi Card Compatibility
With optional Eye-Fi wireless LAN SD memory cards, you can automatically transmit recorded images to a smartphone, picture sharing site, computer or social network. New built-in menus allow you to easily enable automatic transmission of images and video to a smartphone, picture sharing site, computer or social network for rapid sharing. You can even select favorite images and resize them before transmission.
