Overview
  • 1Description

The K-01 Digital Camera With 40mm Lens (Yellow) from Pentax joins the march of the mirrorless cameras with this advanced 16MP camera with a large APS-C-sized CMOS sensor. In a very compact body with a high-resolution (920K dots) 3" LCD, Pentax has provided a wide range of advanced features. The included 40mm lens (35mm equivalent of 61mm) is a wonderful all-around lens, with a f/2.8 maximum aperture and nine aperture blades; this lens is ideal for shooting in low light and achieving shallow depth-of-field for a wide variety of photographic purposes. This low-profile lens is only 0.36" long!

Full control is possible using the PASM modes, with a full automatic function available. The ISO range of 100 to 25,600 and a sensor-shift image stabilization system virtually eliminate blurry, shaky pictures forever. Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps is at your fingertips. The large APS-C sensor gives you superb resolution using JPG or RAW files, and creative filters, auto modes, and finishing options cater to your imaginative impulses. Shutter speeds from 30 seconds up to 1/4000 gives you all the exposure options you need, and you can shoot action at up to 6 fps-you'll never need to miss a photo opportunity waiting for your camera to catch up with you.

A built-in pop-up flash and a hotshoe expand your lighting possibilities. Advanced functions are built-in: a focus peaking mode that provides fast and accurate manual focusing for critical focus applications, and in-camera HDR that combines multiple bracketed user-specified exposures into a single, perfectly blended still image. The K-01 is compatible with Pentax K-mount lenses.
