High-resolution, low-noise, true-to-life image reproduction:The K-30 incorporates the latest CMOS image sensor with a large image-capture area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm. It assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution, rich-gradation digital images with 16.28 effective megapixels. This image sensor is coupled with the PRIME M imaging engine for the recording of high-quality, full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 30 frames per second
Sporty, functional design perfect for outdoor shooting:Thanks to the 81 seals set in its compact and lightweight body, the K-30 is built to be weather-resistant, dustproof and cold-proof with proven functionality in temperatures as low as -10C making the K-30 perfect for outdoor use, whatever the weather. Its exterior has been designed to be both sporty and functional for active outdoor shooting: a large grip for a firm, secure hold of the camera; low-profile pentaprism housing for reduced height; and a rounded, soft-rubber casing for firm hold of the camera during vertical-position shooting.
Optical finder with nearly 100% field of view:The K-30 is smaller and lighter than conventional mid-level models. However, it comes equipped with a glass prism finder with nearly 100% field of view and approximately 0.92times maximum magnification (with a 50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity) to cover the entire field of view for easy focusing and framing
Newly developed SAFOX IXi+ AF module for improved autofocus performance:The K-30 features the state-of-the-art SAFOX IXi+ AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation by incorporating a diffraction lens to minimise chromatic aberration in accordance with the characteristics of each individual lens. It also takes into account the light source at the time of shooting. Nine of its 11 sensor points have cross-type sensors to capture all kinds of subjects in sharp focus, while its spot beam projector assists the AF system in poorly lit locations.
High-speed burst shooting at approximately six images per second:The K-30's high-speed burst shooting function allows the photographer to record active, fast-moving subjects in a series of images - at a maximum speed of six images per second (in the JPEG recording format).
Effortless, user-friendly Auto Picture and Scene modes:The K-30 features the PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode, which automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode for a given
PENTAX-original SR mechanism with user-assisting functions:The K-30 features the PENTAX-developed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, which effectively reduces camera shake for sharp, blur-free images even under demanding shooting conditions such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark or at night without supplementary flash illumination.
A selection of image-processing tools for creative, personalised expression:The K-30 features the custom image function, which allows the user to easily and quickly select the desired finishing touch for a particular image. There is a choice of 11 custom images, including Bleach Bypass, to create a dramatic visual effect used in motion pictures, and Cross Process to produce an eye-catching image with dramatic colours. It also offers a choice of 19 distinctive digital filters, including Miniature, which transforms an actual scene into what appears to be an image of miniature models. These filters add distinctive visual effects to captured images without the need for a computer. The user can further expand the creative possibilities by applying multiple filters to a single image.
