An extra-compact body to accompany you anywhere — even on a short stroll

The PENTAX K-m measures just 122.5 millimeters wide (excluding protrusions), so it comfortably fits in a handbag. You can take it anywhere, for all occasions.

High-quality digital photography is made easy by the lightweight PENTAX K-m lens kits.
Lightweight lenses for easy carrying and outstanding maneuverability

PENTAX has developed a pair of compact, lightweight DAL-series zoom lenses* exclusively for the PENTAX K-m, without sacrificing the outstanding optical performance of PENTAX interchangeable lenses. Even with one of these lenses mounted, the PENTAX K-m is still one of the lightest digital SLR cameras in its class.

The new DAL-series lenses are available only as part of the PENTAX K-m Lens Kit and
the PENTAX K-m Double Zoom Kit.

Just-fit camera grip, even in a small hand

To assure a firm, comfortable hold of the camera, PENTAX has redesigned the PENTAX K-m’s grip to fit securely and comfortably even in smaller hands.

Simplified control system to assure effortless, one-hand operation

Thanks to a thorough review of the operation system, the PENTAX K-m features just a handful of buttons and dials — only those essential for high-quality digital SLR photography. These are laid out for easy access on the right side of the camera’s back panel to assure quick, smooth one-hand operation, as if using a cell phone!

Simple, intuitive operations for instant shooting-mode setting

The PENTAX K-m features a unique "status screen," which allows you to check the camera settings at a glance on the LCD monitor. With a single push of the OK button, this status screen can be instantly switched to the control panel. Using the four-way controller, you can then select the desired setting and make adjustments speedily and effortlessly.
