    Key Features

    • High-resolution, low-noise, true-to-life image reproduction
    • Sporty, functional design for outdoor shooting
    • Optical finder with nearly 100% field of view
    • SAFOX IXi+ AF module for improved autofocus performance
    • High-speed burst shooting at approximately six images per second
    • Advanced Live View shooting with helpful features
    The Pentax K-30 combines a compact and lightweight body. Many of its advanced features are found in upper-class models, such as a weather-resistant, dustproof, cold-proof body and a glass prism finder with nearly 100% field of view. It also offers such handy features as a high-speed shooting of six images per second, a 1/6000 second high shutter speed, and a Full-HD movie function.
    Coupled with a grip providing a firm, comfortable hold of the camera, and a sporty, functional design, it assures dependable, flawless performance on the field.

    Product Features

    • High-resolution, low-noise, true-to-life image reproduction
      The K-30 incorporates the CMOS image sensor with a large image-capturing area measuring 23.7mm by 15.7mm. It assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution, rich-gradation digital images with 16.28 effective megapixels.
    • Sporty, functional design for outdoor shooting
      Thanks to the 81 seals set in its compact, lightweight, portable body, the K-30 is built to be weather-resistant, dustproof and cold-resistant, as well as proven functionality in temperature as low as -10°C. This means that the K-30 can be taken along on outdoor activities such as camping and mountain climbing, for the joy of high-quality digital SLR photography without worrying about weather conditions.
    • Optical finder with nearly 100% field of view
      Despite its compact body that is smaller and lighter than conventional mid-level models, the K-30 comes equipped with a glass prism finder with nearly 100% field of view and approximately 0.92-times maximum magnification to cover the entire field of view for easy focusing and framing. Since it delivers a clear view of the subject even in bright sunshine and eliminates parallax and time lag in the viewfinder image, the K-30 responds efficiently and reliably to demanding applications and subjects, such as landscapes requiring delicate, high-precision framing, and sports scenes where the timing of shutter release is critical.
    • SAFOX IXi+ AF module for improved autofocus performance
      The K-30 features the state-of-the-art SAFOX IXi+ AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation by incorporating a diffraction lens to minimize chromatic aberration in accordance to the characteristics of each individual lens. It also factors the light source at the time of shooting into its calculations. Nine of its 11 sensor points have cross-type sensors to capture all kinds of subjects in sharp focus, while its spotbeam projector assists the AF system at poorly lit locations.
    • High-speed burst shooting at approximately six images per second
      When shooting sports, stage performances or wildlife, the K-30's high-speed burst shooting function comes in handy, as it allows the photographer to record active, fast-moving subjects in a series of images - at a maximum speed of six images per second.
    • Advanced Live View shooting with helpful features
      Thanks to the CMOS image sensor and upgraded algorithm, the K-30 offers a clear, true-to-life Live-View image. It also features a focus-assist function to improve manual-focusing accuracy.
