The K100D Super is equipped with the Pentax-original Shake Reduction (SR) system to reduce camera shake for sharp, blur-free images even under demanding shooting conditions such as when using a telephoto lens or when shooting in low light without a flash. The SR mechanism is designed to minimize camera shake by oscillating the CCD image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed using magnetic force, while adjusting the speed of oscillation in proportion to the amount of camera shake detected by a built-in sensor. As a result, the K100D Super gives the equivalent to approximately 2 to 3.5 shutter steps of compensation. Item has been opened to check content and functionality it has passed all test and is in perfect working order with all accessories. Take advantage of this great low price while it lasts.

Since this versatile system is compatible with all existing Pentax interchangeable SLR lenses, it does not require special anti-shake lenses equipped with add-on optics or devices. (The K100D is compatible with K-, KA-, KAF-, KAF2-mount lenses without an adapter, and screw-mount, 645-system and 67-system lenses with an adapter. Available functions may be limited with certain lenses.)

Compatible with any PENTAX lens ever produced and featuring Shake Reduction, the affordable PENTAX K100D is the kind of camera that makes history. Picture a large 2.5 inch LCD monitor with 210,000 pixel resolution and a friendly Mode Dial offering Auto Picture and Picture modes as well as new Scene modes for even simpler photography. The 6.1 megapixel APS-C size CCD and sophisticated 16-segment multi-pattern metering delivers outstanding image reproduction, while the bright, high-precision PENTAX mirror viewfinder features with 0.85X magnification. All these features combine in a compact design with high-rigidity stainless-steel chassis that is built to last. With adaptor for screw mount and 645/67 lenses.

Dust Removal System for Spotless Images
The K100D Super features the Pentax original Dust Removal (DR) system to prevent dust from sticking to the surface of the low-pass filter in front of CCD image sensor. Through a vapor deposition process, a fluorine compound is applied to the surface of the low-pass filter. This Pentax-original Super Protect (SP) coating effectively prevents dust and stains from sticking to the surface. Any remaining surface dust falls off when the SR system shifts the CCD at high speed. The dust lands on an adhesive sheet positioned at the bottom of the SR unit, eliminating any possibility of it returning to the CCD surface.

Includes smc P-DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Lens
The Pentax smc P-DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 is recommended for use with digital cameras. Ideal for beginners, it provides a focal length covering a wide to moderate wide-angle range. Like all Pentax lenses, the smc P-DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 zoom lens is treated with Pentax's acclaimed smc coating for maximum light transmission, sharp definition, and high contrast while minimizing flare and ghost imaging.

Compatibility with SDM System for Smoother, Quieter Autofocus Operation
The K100D Super's camera body is compatible with a new SDM system, which assures smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a built in supersonic motor. When a lens equipped with the SDM system is mounted on the Pentax K100D Super camera body, the focus mode is automatically switched to SDM-assisted autofocusing.

Auto Sensitivity Control up to ISO Equivalent of 3200
The K100D Super features an Auto Sensitivity Control function that automatically sets the optimum sensitivity up to ISO equivalent of 3200 (the highest automatic setting in its class) based on such data as the subject's brightness level and the lens focal length. Since this function allows the use of higher shutter speeds in poor lighting situations (such as indoor sports events and night scenes), photographers can effectively prevent blurred images. Users may also manually preprogram a desired level, from ISO 200 to the super-high sensitivity of the ISO 3200.

Auto Picture Mode for Effortless Point-and-Shoot SLR Photography
The Pentax-original Auto Picture mode automatically and instantly selects one of five Picture modes (including Portrait, Landscape, and Macro) to create the most appropriate visual effect for a given subject. While the camera sets all primary parameters (including shutter speed, aperture, white balance, saturation, contrast and sharpness), the photographer may concentrate on picture composition and shutter opportunity.

11-Point Wide-Frame AF to Capture Off-Center Subjects in Crisp Focus
The K100D Super's sophisticated SAFOX VIII autofocus system features 11 sensor points (with nine cross-type sensors in the middle) to automatically focus on the subject with utmost precision, even when it is positioned off center. The in-focus sensor point is automatically superimposed in red in the viewfinder for at-a-glance confirmation.

Large LCD Monitor to Facilitate Image Viewing and Menu Setting
The K100D Super features a large 2.5-inch color LCD monitor on its back panel. Its wide-view design allows the photographer to check the monitor image over 140 degrees vertically and horizontally, ensuring effortless image viewing even from a diagonal position. It provides 210,000 pixels for high-resolution image viewing, with a zoom display function that lets users magnify and image up to 12 times for easy confirmation of the focus status and the subject's expressions. The large monitor size allows for large letters, digits, and icons on the menu screens to facilitate menu confirmation and camera operations.

Bright, Clear Viewfinder
The K100D Super features a lightweight penta-mirror viewfinder, which combines Pentax-original finder optics with a Natural-Bright-Matte II focusing screen to deliver a bright, clear subject image with a 0.85-times magnification and a 96-percent field of view.

True-to-Life, Rich-Gradation Images Assured by 6.1 Effective Megapixels
The K100D features a large, high-performance 23.5mm x 15.7mm CCD. By combining 6.1 effective megapixels with a high-performance imaging engine and advanced image-processing technologies, the K100D Super is designed to produce beautiful, true-to-life images that are rich in color gradation. The K100D Super offers a choice of two finishing touches of "Natural" or "Bright" to create a distinctive atmosphere.

Compatibility with High-Quality, High-Capacity SDHC Memory Card
The K100D Super accepts not only the conventional SD memory card as its storage media, but also the newly standardized SDHC card, which allows users to store higher numbers of large data files, such as RAW-format images.

Compact, Lightweight Body with Optimum Holding Comfort
The K100D Super has been designed to be compact and lightweight for easy carrying and enhanced maneuverability with an easy-to-hold grip to assure a stable shooting position.
