K-S1

SLR is closer,and freer than ever.

Next-level functionality expands the realms of expression.
Compact and always easy to use intuitively so you’ll never miss a moment.
A new type of SLR that turns average, everyday moments into precious works of art.

High resolution and moiré reduction, two uses in one
AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator

The AA-filter-free design maximizes resolution from the CMOS image sensor. This model is also equipped with the PENTAX-original AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator function which reduces moiré that occurs due to tiny drive operations of the sensor. Two merits are obtained from this one unit.

* Su†cient e‡ects are obtained when shooting at shutter speeds slower than 1/1000 sec. Also, this function cannot be used when taking “HDR” photos.

High sensitivity is a powerful ally in dark scenes
Maximum ISO 51200

With the new CMOS image sensor and PRIME MII image engine, high sensitivity of ISO 51200 is achieved. This feature shows its true ability when shooting in dark scenes that were not possible with previous cameras.

Approx. 0.95x* high magnification
Optical viewfinder with approx. 100% field of view

A glass prism finder is used with the same specs as those found on PENTAX high end cameras. With the large, easy to use viewfinder with an approximate 100% field of view and approximate 0.95x magnification (viewfinder magnification), focusing and composing shots are easier, letting you focus on the subject.

*50mm F1.4/∞
