Product information

The Pentax K-50 brings high-end features to DSLR beginners with fast shooting and solid all-weather performance. The K-50 features moisture-resistant, dustproof construction to assure seamless performance under demanding outdoor conditions. It even provides a wide range of advanced shooting features, such as full HD movie recording and a selection of creative tools.

CMOS sensor
The K-50 features the state-of-the-art CMOS image sensor with a large image-capturing area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm, to assure high-speed image data readout. This image sensor has PRIME M - the same high-performance imaging engine incorporated in upper-class models - to deliver super-high-resolution, rich-gradation digital images with approximately 16.28 effective megapixels.

Made to last
Thanks to the 81 seals set in its compact, lightweight, portable body, the K-50 is built to be weather-resistant, dustproof and cold-resistant, even at temperatures as low as -10°C. This means that the K-50 can be taken along on outdoor activities such as camping, mountaineering and sports.

Shake reduction
The SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism compensates the adverse effect of camera shake to deliver sharp, blur-free images, even under shake-prone conditions like using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, or taking landscapes at twilight.

High speed
When shooting sports, stage performances or wildlife, the K-50’s high-speed continuous shooting function comes in handy. Record active, fast-moving subjects in a series of images, at a maximum speed of six images per second (in JPEG format).

1080p video
The K-50 captures high-resolution, full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels) in H.264, with a choice of frame rate (30, 25 or 24 frames per second). It even comes with creative image-processing tools and features like an interval movie recording function.

Optical finder
The K-50 features a glass prism finder with nearly 100% field of view and approximately 0.92-times magnification (with a 50mm F1.4 lens at infinity) to cover the entire field of view for easy focusing and framing.

USB cable, battery, strap, lens and software CD.

Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
