In-body SR mechanism (IBIS)

Effective shake reduction with all lenses, assuring optimum compensation effects

The PENTAX KF features the PENTAX-original, in-body SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a compensation effect of 4.5 shutter steps.* It works effectively with all PENTAX interchangeable lenses – from wide-angle to telephoto models – and minimize camera shake in camera-shake-prone conditions, such as when shooting low-light scenes using natural light only or when using a telephoto lens. It also comes in handy with panning shots, since it automatically detects the direction of the camera’s movement with a gyro sensor, and efficiently controls the SR unit to produce the best possible image. Simply by keeping the SR mode turned on, you can effortlessly minimize camera shake with both normal images and panning shots.

* Measured in conformity with CIPA testing standards (using the smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mmF3.5-5.6ED AL [IF] DC WR lens, at a focal length of 135mm)

Pentax KF DSLR camera  IBIS - In-body SR mechanismThe PENTAX KF compensates for camera shake by lifting the Image sensor by magnetic force and shifting it in sync with the camera's movement.

 

Pixel Shift Resolution System

Optimizing the potential of the high-pixel image sensor to capture super-high-resolution images

By taking advantage of the SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, this innovative system* captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, then synthesizing them into a single composite image. It obtains all RGB color data in each pixel to deliver super-high-resolution images with a far more truthful colors and much finer details than those captured by normal shooting processes. When the Motion Correction function** is activated, it automatically detects a moving object during continuous shooting and minimizes negative effects during the synthesizing process. The images captured by this system can be saved as RAW-format files.

* When using this system, we advise stabilizing the camera firmly on a tripod. The user is also advised to use the self-timer setting of the drive mode, a remote-control function, or a mirror lock-up function.
* This system may not produce the desired effect when the subject is on the move or the camera is shaken.
** This system may not correct certain types of subject movement. It does not guarantee that movement is properly corrected for all subjects. The function can be turned off when desired.

 Pentax KF DSLR camera Pixel Shift Resolution System

 

 

Pixel Shift Resolution
Obtained color data

The camera takes four images of the scene, and obtain the RGB color data and brightness data for each pixel.
 

Normal shooting
Obtained color data

Single-color data is obtained for each pixel.

 

High-resolution, rich -gradation images are created from highly resolvable color and brightness data.

No chromatic moiré (false color) is generated because of no pixel interpolation takes place.
Based on the RGB composition ratio, the resolution of each color becomes 1/4 for R and B, and 1/2 for G.

De-mosaic process

The system interpolates for missing pixels by referring to neighboring pixels and/or outlines.

When the color of the interpolated pixel differs from the acutual one, chromatic moiré (false color) is generated in the pixels.

 

AA-filter simulator

State-of-the-art function to minimize moiré and false colors

The PENTAX KF features an AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator,* which effectively minimizes the moiré patterns often generated on subjects with fine, repetitive patterns, and the false colors commonly generated at the edges of high-contrast images. With the help of the SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, this simulator applies microscopic vibrations to the image sensor unit at the sub-pixel level during image exposure to minimize these adverse effects. It lets you choose the desired balance between the filtering effect of the AA simulator and the higher resolving power of an AA-filter-free design, based on your creative intentions.

* This simulator may not work with some shooting modes, or with certain functions.
* This simulator works most effectively with a shutter speed of 1/1000 second or slower.

Average Fine Sharpness and Extra Sharpness

Sharpness-enhancing tools to improve the image rendition of photographic works

A sharpness-enhancing process using thick outlines often spoils the image’s resolution. That’s why PENTAX KF provides a pair of more advanced sharpness-enhancing functions. The Fine Sharpness function outlines the subject with thinner, more natural lines than those created by normal processing to produce a high-quality, fine-detailed image. The Extra Sharpness function emphasizes the subject’s outline more prominently with much finer lines, making it particularly useful for enhancing the outline of a low-contrast subject.

 

Clarity control and Skin Tone correction

For effortless control of the subject’s texture

The Clarity control function is an image-processing tool useful in expressing the luster of metal or the clarity of the sky or water. It allows you to adjust the smoothness of the subject’s surface and express desired texture or clearness at nine levels (between -4 and +4 settings). The Skin Tone correction function* helps you reproduce the subject’s face with soft skin texture and healthy skin tone, while retaining a high-resolution description of the subject’s hair and outfit and the background. It provides a choice of two modes: Type 1 for the compensation of color and brightness only, and Type 2 for additional control of skin tone.
* The Skin Tone correction function makes compensation only when the camera detects a face in the image.

 

An array of lens compensation functions

High-quality images assured, even at the edge of the image field

The PENTAX KF effectively compensates distortion, vignetting and lateral chromatic aberration of magnification caused by particular characteristics of a lens to deliver sharp, high-contrast images, even at the edges. During RAW-data development, it can even compensate the fringe effect.

 

Diffraction compensation

Diffraction blur minimized at closed-down apertures

This function compensates the deterioration in the camera’s resolving power that is caused by diffraction phenomena. By properly using lens information to process image data, it compensates the diffraction blur effect by as much as approximately two aperture stops.* This function comes in handy in scenic photography, when you want to close the aperture down to increase the depth of field without compromising the resolving power.
* Measured under RICOH IMAGING in-house testing standards.
* Compatible with D FA-, DA-, DA L-, and FA-series lenses. (Some FA-series lenses are incompatible with this function.)
