The K-50 gives you fast, advanced functionality to capture every moment. Expect top level DSLR specifications, like a 16 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and a large 3-inch high resolution LCD with brightness and color adjustments, plus 921,000 dots of resolution. The K-50 gives you four interchangeable focusing screens and achieves a 100% optical field of view for framing accuracy.

Shoot like a pro at a fast continuous six fps, ISO up to 51200, advanced SAFOX IXi+ autofocus engine with AF assist lamp, and full h.264 HD video recording. With 81 seals throughout the body, the PENTAX K-50 tough and flexible, too. Venture into rain, sand or sub-freezing weather, and keep shooting. Plus, our in-body, sensor-shift Shake and Dust Reduction technology ensures sharp imaging with any mounted lens — and the PENTAX K-mount is compatible with every K-mount lens ever made.
