Digital Camera Description

The Pentax K-1 Mark II is a Professional DSLR with a Full-Frame sensor and a Pentax K lens mount. Its 36 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-819200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-819200. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 36 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin 5-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Pentax K-1 Mark II to compensate for camera shake up to 5-Stops beyond hand-holding with any mounted lens.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/8000 to 30s. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/8000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Pentax K-1 Mark II

The Pentax K-1 Mark II features a 33-point Phase-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. Manual Focus is also available.

Rare triple control-dials are featured on this digital camera, giving the efficient direct control over every exposure-parameter needed by professional photographers. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. Framing on the Pentax K-1 Mark II is performed via an extra large reflex optical viewfinder with 0.70X magnification and 100% coverage.
