The Pentax K-500 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens Basic Kit from B&H combines the K-500 DSLR and a versatile zoom lens along with a 16GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-I memory card and a shoulder bag for storing and protecting your camera and accessories.

The K-500 features a 16.3MP APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and PRIME M image processor to enable high-resolution shooting up to 6 fps and full HD 1080p video recording with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 51200. In-camera sensor-shift type image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and the SAFOX IXi+ autofocus system also contributes to sharp imagery by maintaining fast and accurate focusing performance. A 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation and the body's design incorporates a stainless steel chassis for enhanced durability and is also capable of accepting either four AA batteries or one lithium-ion battery as its power source.

Included with the K-500 camera body is the SMC PENTAX-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 27.0-82.5mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of situations. The lens construction integrates aspherical elements to help minimize chromatic aberration as well as improve image sharpness. Additionally, an SP (Super Protect) coating has been applied to elements to help repel dust, water, and grease from lens surfaces.
