The Pentax K-1 Camera

The Pentax K-1 is the manufacturer’s first full-frame DSLR and flagship of the K-mount. Key features include:

What’s New. Years in the making, the K-1 gives Pentax users the full-frame camera that’s long eluded their grasp. It sits in a class of its own as a professional-caliber DSLR with features no one else offers, all at an enthusiast-level price.

36.2MP Full-Frame CMOS. This anti-alias-free sensor outputs high resolution images with more depth and sharpness than possible with the previous APS-C offerings. The increased sensor real estate also provides outstanding high ISO image quality with a range of 100-204800.

5-Axis Image Stabilization Magic. Rated for 5-stops of correction, this system does more than just keeping images free from camera shake across 5-axes. Thanks to some technical wizardry and elvish magic, the K-1 stabilizer offers a Pixel Shift resolution mode (42MP), Horizon Correction, AstroTracer function, and AA filter simulation. There are dedicated corners of the internet that go into detail on these unique features, so we’ll leave it at that.

Updated Autofocus. The updated SAFOX 12 AF module features 33 total autofocus points, with 25 being the cross-type variety. Three central points are optimized for performance with f/2.8 and faster lenses, while all but the outer 8 points offer focusing down -3EV.

Full HD Video. Definitely not a flagship feature, but the K-1 does shoot Full HD 1080/30p video using h.264 compression. There’s a built-in stereo mic for in-camera audio, as well as external mic and headphone jacks for higher quality audio.

Professional Build. It wouldn’t be a Pentax camera if the build quality wasn’t up to snuff. Rest assured there’s no skimping here. The magnesium-alloy body has the usual elaborate weather sealing for peace of mind. There’s more customization to shake a stick at, yet the core manual controls and ergonomics remain primary focus. The 3.2" “Cross-Tilt” LCD gives you the ability to position the screen in ways you didn’t think was necessary, and the large optical viewfinder with 0.7x magnification gives you 100% coverage.

Other Notable Features. Built-in wifi allows wireless image transfer and camera control from a smartphone, and the in-camera GPS module does just what you’d expect. The K-1 has LED lights strategically placed behind the rear LCD and above the lens mount to help you see what you’re doing in complete darkness. There are dual SD slots for recording images and video, and the included rechargeable D-LI90 battery is rated for 760 shots per charge.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
