The K-30 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm AL and 50-200mm AL Lens Kit - Crystal White from Pentax is a great entry for hobbyists looking to purchase a DSLR for the first time, or photographers who need a new camera with a more rugged construction and an included telephoto zoom lens. With a fast 6 frames per second and built-in image stabilization, it will easily catch your kids playing in the big game, or the hummingbird that visits your feeder. You'll also be able to shoot worry-free due to the K-30's weather sealing that allows for use in inclement weather conditions, including below-freezing temperatures of 14° F!

With 16.3 megapixels, and a maximum resolution of 4928 x 3264, you'll also have free reign to print enlargements, easily up to 11 x 14" and beyond, to hang up in the living room or a home office. Should a single image not be able to fully capture the moment, you can even switch to video mode, with live view, and capture stunning 1080p Full HD clips of every detail--to relive whenever you want, even on a big-screen TV.

This Pentax K-30 kit includes two lenses to provide a full range of focal lengths. The first is the 18-55mm lens which is an everyday, go-to lens for shots of the family or standard landscapes and sunsets. Its 35mm equivalency is 27.5-84.5mm, so inclusive wide-angle is no problem. The second lens that comes with this kit is the 50-200mm telephoto zoom which brings distant subjects close and is great for creative portraiture. Its 35mm equivalency is 76.5-307mm and its true telephoto range is ideal for wildlife and sports photography.

For a bit of creative freedom, there are several different capture modes that can be used to define your unique style as a photographer, including: Extract Color, Toy Camera, Retro, High Contrast, Shading, Invert Color, Color, and even HDR (High Dynamic Range). With just three exposures the camera can capture and align the images by pixel to create HDR images with ease.

Pentax smc P-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Zoom Lens
This is a standard focal length zoom lens designed specifically for beginners using Pentax digital SLR cameras. Blending versatility with affordability, it has a broad range of applications from indoor pictures, portraits, and landscapes to family photos and other general situations. This lens is weather resistant to handle damp, inclement conditions, and has a great wide angle capability with a standard 3x zoom range.
Pentax smc P-DA 50-200mm f/4.0-5.6 AL Zoom Lens
This DA 50-200mm zoom features a responsive "Quick-Shift Focus System" that allows photographers to instantly switch the focus mode from auto to manual with a slight twist of the focus ring. The image circle in DA-series lenses is designed to perfectly match the size of the CCD used in PENTAX digital SLRs to optimize camera performance.
High Performance 16Mp Sensor
The 16.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor records image resolutions of up to 16M (4928 x 3264), and down to 5M (2688 x 1792). Of the four available resolutions, you can decide to record several file formats, including: RAW (DNG), JPG (EXIF 2.3), DCF 2.0 compliant, DPOF, and PIM III.
Full 1080p30 HD Video
Record Full HD 1080p video that features h.264 compression, flexible exposure control, and HDR finishing options. The highest resolution recorded is 1920 x 1080p with 30, 25, or 24 frames per second. These video clips are then compressed and saved in MOV or MPEG-4 AVC (h.264) formats
Image Capture and Processing
While the K-30's PRIME M image processing engine has been optimized for video shooting modes, it also captures outstanding still images at up to 6 frames per second in continuous shooting mode. Ensuring all of these images are properly focused, the advanced SAFOX IXi+ autofocus engine features an AF assist lamp, light source sensor, and improved optical components. This 11 point (9 cross) wide autofocus system features a light wavelength sensor and diffraction lens. The highly accurate 77 segment metering system ensures your images from the K-30 will have accurate exposure, even in complex lighting conditions. It also has exposure bracketing: with 3 frames, up to +/- 2 EV in 1/3 or 1/2 steps
3.0" Wide-Angle Display and Glass Pentaprism Viewfinder
The large 3 inch LCD on the back of the K-30 camera body is wide angle viewable, and features 921,000 dots of resolution. Live View on this screen has focus peaking highlights in-focus surfaces for fast and accurate manual or autofocus. Allowing for both methods of composition, the K-30 also features a low profile glass pentaprism viewfinder. It achieves a 100% optical field of view and has a magnification of 0.92x
Two Convenient Power Sources
Compatible with both rechargeable Li-Ion and "AA" batteries (via the optional "AA" battery holder sold separately), you can easily find replacement batteries for your Pentax K30, should you run out of charge while in the field.
Worry-Free Weather Sealing
With a fully weather sealed camera body, you can shoot in poor weather conditions worry-free, or shoot sports in otherwise treacherous conditions for any other camera. The K-30 also features a rugged cold-proof design that even allows for sub-freezing use--so you can even shoot winter sports in frigid and snowy conditions.
Colors
The K-30 body comes in three color options: classic SLR Black, Crystal Blue and Crystal White.
