Pentax K-50

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

Specifications for the K-50 mimic the K-30, and here are a few of the similarities: 16.3 megapixel resolution sensor; SAFOX IXi+ 11 point autofocus system; 3 inch LCD monitor; built in flash with a guide number of 12 meters at 100 ISO; lithium-ion or optional AA battery power sources; identical body dimensions and weight; maximum shutter speed of 1/6000 of a second and a continuous shooting rate of up to 6 frames per second; full 1080 HD video and in-body image stabilization. One slight difference: the K-50 features an ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 51200 while the K-30 tops out at 25600.
