The K-5 II Digital SLR Camera with SMC DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL WR Lens Kit from Pentaxputsatop-of-the-line APS-C DSLR camera together with a versatile 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL lens.
The K-5 II offersa 16.3MP CMOS sensor with integrated A/D conversion circuitry for high resolution photos and video. And the K-5 II brings with it a new, highly advanced and extremely accurate 11 point SAFOX X autofocus system. This new autofocus systemoffers a wide EV focus range which meansfaster autofocus with less hunting in low-light situations and improved AF accuracy when using fast, wide-aperture lenses. The AF sensor also includes the Select-Area Expansion feature which automatically tracks moving subjects as they proceed across the frame.
The ISO sensitivity range on the K-5 II is impressive, ranging from 100-12800 in normal settingand expandable from 80-51200.Combine this withthe Pentax body-based Shake Reduction stabilization systemand you havea camera that performs incredibly well in low light situations and when shooting telephoto. Expect nothing but sharp, blur-free images in both photo and video. The K-5 II also allows for a shutter speed as fast as 1/8000 of a second which will stop fast motion subjects in their tracks and provide wonderfully detailedsports and wildlife shots. And at 7 frames per second of continuous shooting, you will never miss that action shot! Accurate exposure metering is provided by the Pentax 77-segment metering system and whether you prefer to shoot with auto exposure or with full manual control, the K-5 II is for you.
The K-5 II has Full HD 1080p video capture at 25 frames per second. Stereo sound recording is available via the built-in microphone or through external microphones connected at the camera's 3.5mm stereo microphone jack. An HDMI port connects your camera directly to HDTV and allows for immediate screening of yourwidescreen video in glorious HD.
For playback and composition, the K-5 II has an air-gap-free, scratch resistant 3.0" LCD with 921,000 dots of resolution that offers detailed and color-accurate images even in bright sunlight. A pentaprism viewfinder with 100% field of view and 0.92x magnification is available for classic SLR framing and a built-in electronic level with tilt scale display will help keep your images straight when shooting products or architecture.
For thephotographers who shoot primarily in RAW, the Pentax K-5 II offers native support for both Pentax PEF and Adobe DNG 14-bit RAW files. A customizable RAW/Fx button allows for easy access to your most used shooting settings including immediate RAW access and the RAW Data Retrieve function saves the original RAW data of a just-recorded JPEG format image.
The K-5 II also has a wide range of in-camera image processing and filters are available for creative touches and HDR capture is also available to provide balanced exposures when shooting high contrast scenes.
While the Pentax K-5 II is a user-friendly camera accessible to all, it is particularly ideal for shooters who work in extreme conditions. A durable magnesium alloy cover surrounds a stainless steel chassis and the body is fully weather sealed with 77 protection seals throughout the body. It is cold proof to 14 F (-10C) and has been tested to 100,000 shutter releases which means you can count on this camera, especially when thegoinggets tough.
Included with the Pentax K-5 II is the Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL WR Zoom lens which is an ideal standard zoom lens designed specifically for Pentax digital SLRs. Able to shoot both true wide angle and standardtelephotofocal lengths this is a versatile lens that can handle portraits andgroup shots, interiors and landscapes. In 35mm format, this lens is equivalent to a 27.5-84.5mm lens. Aspherical optics reduce aberrations and SP Coating repels dust, water and grease. And, like the K-5 II, it is weather-resistant, so it can handle damp and cold conditions.
