A tough body that can venture anywhere with full-featured performance that expands possibilities. Get ready to experience a new way to enjoy photos with the Pentax K-S2.
The smallest size in its class is achieved at an approximate width of 122.5 mm and thickness of approximately 72.5 mm. Despite this size, it features a weather-resistant and dustproof construction and avari-angle LCD monitor for shooting with any framing.*On DSLR cameras with a dust and weather-resistant construction. Current as of February 1, 2015.
All aspects of this model have been thoroughly considered to achieve a true DSLR form and they have been polished to bring out their true strengths, from the approximate 100% viewfinder coverage of the optical viewfinder, to the high- performance autofocus for easy shooting of moving subjects and in dark situations, and the AA-filter-free design giving absolute priority to image quality.
This model is Wi-Fi ready. With the dedicated smartphone app, you can shoot remotely, transfer and view images, and upload to social networking services from the palm of your hand. In addition, you can pair your NFC compatible smartphone with it just by waving your smartphone over the camera.
This camera is equipped with a glass pentaprism optical viewfinder. The 0.95x viewfinder magnification* and approximate 100% viewfinder coverage is now achieved. With this feature, checking focus and composition is easy and you can shoot with focus on the subject.
This camera employs the original shake reduction (SR) mechanism. It effectively reduces camera shake with all lenses, from ultra-wide angle to super-telephoto. Using SR with an image stabilization effect of 3.5 stops*1, the camera automatically applies horizontal correction*2 for countering minute horizontal tilting that occurs when pressing the shutter button. It is also equipped with a DR (Dust Removal) cleaning function that uses high-speed SR vibration to remove dust from the image sensor.
Complies with CIPA standards (Uses f = 135mm,smc PENTAX DA18-135mm F3.5-5.6ED AL [IF] DC WR)
The maximum angle that can be corrected is ±1.5 when SR is off and ±1 when SR is on.
This camera is equipped with the SAFOX X AF system. In addition to a high-sensitivity AF sensor that is perfect for shooting in the dark, it is equipped with a diffractive lens in the optical system. Chromatic aberrations are kept to an absolute minimum and focus detection accuracy is increased. Algorithms are used to increase AF speed even further.
By using a high-sensitivity AF sensor, the AF low-luminance limit is expanded to -3EV (9 center sensors). This enables accurate AF even in dark locations and reduces the effects of bright sections in backlit conditions for accurate capturing of low-contrast subjects.
The 11 AF sensor points let you freely compose shots. Nine of these points are cross-type sensors that make it easier to catch subjects. The center AF points make it possible to focus in the most difficult situations, such as when using a large- diameter lens with a narrow depth of field.
When using Expanded Area AF, surrounding AF sensors will automatically be used even if the subject moves away from the selected AF sensor points. This technology lets you continuously capture moving subjects.
This camera is equipped with a 1/6000 sec. high-speed shutter. With it, you can capture split-second movements of active subjects in sharp detail.
Up to approximately 5.5 fps high-speed continuous shooting is possible. Because the movement and expression that changes from moment to moment is captured continuously without missing a shot, you can select the best shot afterward.
The camera body is equipped with two e-dials; one on the front and one on the rear. With the Pentax-original Hyper Control System, each of those dials can be used to instantly reflect the aperture and shutter speed, making quick exposure settings possible while looking through the viewfinder.
The mode dial is equipped with a full lineup of shooting modes. Two USER Modes are also available to register frequently-used settings for easy activation at any time.
Shooting mode AUTO: (Auto Picture Mode), P: (Program), Sv: (Sensitivity Priority), Tv: (Shutter Priority), Av: (Aperture Priority), TAv: (Shutter & Aperture Priority), M: (Manual), B: (Bulb), U1: (USER Mode 1), U2: (USER Mode 2), A-HDR: (Advanced HDR Mode), SCN: (Scene Mode)
The zoom lens part of the kit lens lineup is kept to 41mm when retracted, thanks to the newly-developed lens barrel mechanism. It has a focal length of 27.5 to 76.5mm (35mm equivalent). The camera is easy to take with you when this lens is attached, and the in-lens DC motor drive makes AF operation silent. It also features the same weather-resistant construction as the camera body.
A weather-resistant/ dustproof construction was employed for shooting outdoors. Sealing was used on 100 different locations, including buttons, dials, and covers, to prevent rain, water droplets, sand, and dust from getting into the camera.
The effective pixels of this camera are approx. 20.12 megapixel. To give further priority to resolution, it does not use an AA-filter. This enables capturing the finest details for expressing the beautiful imaging performance through colors with a sense of transparency.
The AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator is the technology using shake reduction (SR) mechanism that achieves the same effect as an optical AA filter. The image sensor is driven in minute increments during exposures to significantly reduce false colors and moiré. This single camera has the benefit of two: one equipped with an AA-filter and one without an AA-filter.
Sufficient effects are obtained when shooting at shutter speeds slower than 1/1000 sec. This function cannot be used when taking “HDR” photos.
The latest original PRIME M II imaging engine is used on this camera. Together with the high-performance sensor, beautiful depiction with minimal roughness, transparent colors and a natural sense of details is possible even at high ISO sensitivity.
The camera corrects various issues such as distortion and color bleeding due to lens characteristics, loss of peripheral light, and loss of resolution due to stopping down the aperture. A higher level of digital image quality is achieved through Color Fringe Correction during RAW development and Color Moiré Correction when editing images.
Clarity Enhancement, the Ricoh-original image processing technology, is designed to fit human visual characteristics for imaging with a three-dimensional feel. This technology gives images the finest textures overflowing with realism.
The high-performance CMOS image sensor and imaging engine make the ultra-high sensitivity of Maximum ISO 51200 possible. Noise is minimized even in dark locations for shooting without a tripod or flash.
The screen is split into 77 segments for detailed contrast metering. The total exposure is then determined based on information such as subject position and distance. The correct exposure can be obtained even in backlit situations or scenes with a high amount of contrast.
Center-weighted and spot metering are also available.
This camera is equipped with a vari-angle LCD monitor, so you can freely adjust the angle in any way. Expand the possibilities of Live View shooting by stretching your arms to shoot from a high angle, and getting down low to approach the subject from a low angle. The Electronic Level can also be displayed on the monitor, giving you an objective viewpoint when checking the tilt of the composition.
The space between the LCD panel and protective cover is filled with a special resin for an air gapless LCD monitor. This construction removes light reflection from in the space, improving visibility even in bright outdoor conditions. By further adding white pixels to RGB, the screen display is sharp and bright. The screen is a large 3.0 inches, and at an aspect ratio of 3:2 (the same as images), you can view images at full size on the screen.
This camera is compatible with wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) so you can wirelessly connect to a smartphone or tablet. Import images on the spot so you can enjoy them right then and there.
This camera is NFC (Near Field Communication) ready, so you can simply wave your smartphone over it to communicate. Simply touch an NFC-ready smartphone to the camera body to pair the two devices for easy photo transfer and remote shooting functionality.
The newly developed “Image Sync” app expands the fun of using a smartphone and camera together. You can control shooting from the palm of your hand, and adjust the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity. You can also view images on your smartphone and upload your favorites to social networking services.
You can remotely operate the camera from a smartphone or tablet. Operate the shutter while viewing the Live View image in the palm of your hand and view images.
You can utilize the advantage of the SLR that you can interchange with various lenses to capture charming Full HD movies. You also can use the electronic shake reduction and digital filters when recording movies as well. These features result in movies with both a personality of their own and excellent image quality.
In addition to stereo audio recording with the built-in microphone, a commercially-available external microphone can also be attached for stereo recording. This is especially effective for capturing videos with immersive sound.
Connect still images captured over a certain interval to create a single movie file. You can then view subjects moving quickly during replay. Full HD, HD, and 4K (3840x2160) recording sizes are available.
*When playing back a 4K Interval Movie Record, be sure to use a computer environment that can play back 4K movies.
You can record the light trails of stars in a night sky and illuminations using 4K Interval Movie Record. When combined with the Fade-out function, a dreamlike movie is created.
This camera is compatible with the high-performance O-GPS1 clip-on type GPS unit (optional). You can record the latitude and longitude along with shooting data, along with displaying the accurate direction from an electronic compass. This accessory is also useful for astrophotography. With it you can calculate the movement of celestial bodies, letting you capture beautiful still images of stars as points of light.
If you point the lens toward yourself, swivel the LCD monitor, and switch to Live View shooting, the new self portrait shutter button light begins to glow. Then you can use the other button which is in a position where it is easier to press, and you can shoot holding the camera with one hand.
