The K-1s new full frame 36.4 MP effective CMOS sensor isnt just another
full frame sensor. The K-1 is engineered to incorporate all of the performance
requirements of high resolution full frame 35mm digital photography, adding
PENTAX unique performance features and characteristics.
An improved noise processing algorithm provides unprecedented performance in
shadows or low light shooting where high ISO settings are critical for good
performance. With the highest ISO in its class, the K-1 has achieved a
staggering sensitivity range of up to ISO 204,800. This is attributable to a
combination of the new large pixel, full frame sensor that has high noise
resistance, and the new PRIME IV processor. Newly developed 5-axis SR II system
covers the shake of yaw, pitch, roll, vertical, and horizontal motion of the
camera. Shake reduction performance is improved to 5 shutter steps of
Since SR is built-in to the K-1 body, its operation works with every K-mount
lens. Combining both the K-1s SR mechanism and the GPS feature, Astro Tracer
easily tracks and photographs astronomical objects. By using movement of the
image sensor during image exposure, the K-1 sensor generates the same level of
moir-reduction effect as optical AA (anti-aliasing) filter, without the
softening effect. Unlike fixed optical AA filters, this allows the user to
adjust the level of the moir-reduction effect from OFF, Type1 and Type2.
Bracketing of these settings is also available.
For quick and easy operation in dark situations, the K-1 has new operation
assist lighting placed in strategic locations on the body of the camera. The K-1
is carefully sealed in 87 different places for durable usage under harsh weather
conditions. Get the shot anywhere, from any position, using the extremely nimble
and flexible Cross-Tilt display. Shoot from the ground up, over the crowd, and
around the corner, with extreme agility not found in other full frame offerings.
