question

Does this camera have a built-in intervalometer for time-lapse photography? Does it have a power adaptor?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes: pages 125-127 of the camera's instruction manual indicate how to use the camera's built-in Interval Shooting mode for photography needs. As indicated under the Accessories tab on our website under Batteries & Power, the Pentax K-AC128 AC Adapter Kit for K-30 Digital Cameras, B&H # PEKAC128, would be the correct AC Adapter Kit to power the Pentax K-50 DSLR camera via AC power.

question

Does this bundle come with the Li-Ion battery?
Asked by: Anonymous
yes, it comes with one. To get back up, you need to buy a second or a AA battery adapter. I bought neither and get plenty of life out of one so long as I regularly charge it.

question

Will Canon lenses fit on this camera body?
Asked by: Kristy L.
I'm not familiar with the Canon lens mount but I doubt whether it is the same as Pentax. There may be some sort of adaptor that will adapt Canon lenses to Pentax, but again, I've never run into this myself. Hope that helps!

question

Is the 18 - 135 lens waterproof?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 18 - 135 WR lens provided as part of the kit with the K50 body is weather resistant rather than water proof, in the same way the body is.

question

My family and I will be going on a vacation soon and will be doing scuba diving, snuba diving, and snorkeling. I would love to be able to use my k-50 underwater! Can you recommend any good water houses? If it helps, we will not be going deeper than 100 feet. (Also, sorry I misclicked earlier and accidentally posted this question as an answer. XD)
Asked by: Reynaldo R.
For this, your best bet will be to contact our Underwater Department directly as a dive set-up does take a bit more information than just knowing the model of the camera. They would be able to assist you with finding a housing, ports for your various lenses, and any other accessories you might need such as lights, o-rings, dive filters UW@<a href= http://bhphotovideo.com target= _blank >bhphotovideo.com</a>
