It increases your handheld shooting shutter speed range by 2.5 to 4 stops for blur-free pictures, and is compatible with every PENTAX lens ever produced.
- Help Button - Leave the manual at home. The dedicated and reprogrammable Help Button on the K2000 is like having a built-in user?s guide. It clearly explains camera settings to ease the transition from compact photography to DSLR mastery.
- Dust Alert function - Dust Reduction and Dust Alert features eliminate the need for time-consuming retouching by minimizing dust and determining if and where any dust remains after the system is activated.
- Pentax Real IMage Engine (PRIME) - PRIME image processing engine maximizes image properties and allows custom adjustment of image parameters, such as truer color tones, a wider dynamic range, and natural-looking high ISO images.
- Full backward lens compatibility - PENTAX has manufactured over 25 million lenses in the last six decades; all DSLR bodies offer backward compatibility with every one.* Whichever lens is used, whether a most recent lens or a classic screwmount, it will faithfully capture the image desired.
*With adapter for screwmount and 645/67 lenses.
- Custom IMage modes - Custom IMage modes, with six preset options, offer superior control of how the PRIME processor develops images, and can be further modified to meet your needs. Get beautifully processed images in any shooting condition.
- AA battery compatibility - Approximately 1,650 images can be taken when using AA size lithium batteries due to their energy-saving design. (Four Energizer lithium batteries are included with each camera.) Plus, AA power can be found anywhere in the world.
