20-megapixel AA-Filterless CMOS sensor

A high performance 20 megapixel AA-Filterless APS-C CMOS image sensor strikes the perfect balance between resolution and image quality. 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.

Vari-angle 3.0 inch, 921K dot Air Gapless LCD

The K-S2 is the first PENTAX DSLR with a Vari-angle LCD. It extends the freedom of shooting position from high angle to ground level view. 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.

The 3.0 inch, 921K dot Air Gapless LCD construction ensures good visibility of displayed image even outdoors. 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 of aspect ratio of 3:2 (the same as images), you can view images at full size on the screen.

SAFOX X AF System

The SAFOX X AF module ensures fast and accurate autofocusing, even in challenging situations such as extremely low light environments. Equipped with 11 focusing points (9 cross-sensor points), the Center point also works with F2.8 luminance flux. 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.

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 camera also comes with Focusing Peaking and LED AF-assist light for stress-free MF and low light operation.


Smallest Weather-Resistant DSLR

The K-S2 is the world’s smallest weather resistant DSLR. 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.


High-speed shutter to capture fast-moving subjects in crisp focus

The K-S2 provides a top shutter speed of 1/6000 second to capture the decisive moment. Coupled with its high-speed continuous shooting function (with a top speed of 5.4 images per second), it lets the photographer freeze once-in-a-lifetime shutter opportunities. Versatile drive settings include: Multi-exposure, Interval shooting and Interval composite.


Full HD movie recording with stereo audio

The K-S2 captures beautiful Full HD movie clips at 30fps, which assures flawless, high-quality movies even with fast-moving subjects. It is also equipped with a built-in stereo microphone for recording natural sound during Full HD movie recording, as well as an external microphone connector. Capture time lapse movies in HD with the ‘Star Stream’ functionality, allowing you to record series of still images, such as stars, and save them as an AVI movie. 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.

Prime M II Image Processing Engine

The latest original PRIME M II imaging engine is used on this camera. The PRIME M II image processing engine is optimized for HD video capture, smooth live view, low chromatic noise, and low energy consumption. 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.


In-body Shake Reduction (SR)

The In-body shake reduction (SR) mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake regardless of the lens type mounted. CIPA rated to 3 stops, the sensor-shift in-body image stabilization with rotational compensation reduces the effect of camera shake on your final image. Also, the K-S2 is able to use this shake reduction system to remove dust from your image sensor and also to enact the AA filter simulation mode for avoiding moire in your final image.


Clarity Enhancement Feature and Advanced HDR Mode

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. Newly It adds more realistic texture impression to images by enhancing the spatial frequencies to match with human visual characteristics. Enjoy outstanding clarity even on screen-fit view on a variety of display monitors from a tablet PC to 4K high-resolution displays. Choose the Advanced HDR Mode (A-HDR) on the mode dial and “Clarity Enhancement” is automatically applied to images.


Take Self Portraits

The Pentax K-S2 comes with two shutter release buttons. 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. 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 just one hand.

AA (anti-aliasing) Filter Simulator

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.


77 Multi-segment metering

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.


Easily capture with 4K time-lapse movies

Connect still images captured over a certain interval to create a single movie file. You can then viewsubjects moving quickly during replay. Full HD, HD,and 4K (3840x2160) recording sizes are available.


Star Stream movie shooting

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.


Enjoy astrophotography and record location information

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.


Multi-exposure

You can shoot any number of images from 2 to 2,000, and composite them to form a single image. You can choose various composite modes such as Average, for an average exposure amount, Additive, for adding exposure, and Bright, for compositing the bright parts of the image.


Interval Shooting/ Composite

The camera automatically shoots for a specified interval. This feature is perfect for capturing slow changes in a subject. You can select the shooting interval or shooting standby time as well as more advanced settings. This model is also equipped with Interval Composite for merging all of these recorded images into a single photo.


Continuous shooting compatible self-timer

The self-timer is compatible with continuous shooting. Capture some continuous shots with friends and then choose the best expression from among them afterward.
