Product Code: Refurb_13206


The Pentax K-S2 is a smallest dustproof, weather-resistant digital SLR camera designed for active, outdoor shooting. In addition to the SAFOX X autofocus system, which performs superbly with poorly illuminated and moving subjects, it provides a full range of advanced features rivaling those of high-end models, including: an AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator to assure the same level of moiré-reduction effect as an optical AA filter; an optical viewfinder with a glass pentaprism to provide a nearly 100% field of view; an in-body shake reduction mechanism; and a top sensitivity of ISO 51200. It also provides remote shooting functions and wireless LAN and NFC functions to make it easier to communicate with smartphones and tablets.

Small dustproof, weather-resistant body

The Pentax K-S2 camera body is not only designed to be compact and portable, but also dustproof and weather-resistant. One hundred seals have been applied to crucial parts of the body to prevent the intrusion of rain and dust into the interior, making the Pentax K-S2 a perfect choice for a wide range of outdoor activities, including mountain climbing, camping and sports events.

Variable-angle LCD monitor for easy image viewing

The Pentax K-S2 comes equipped with an Air Gapless LCD monitor that features a variable-angle design for the first time in a Pentax digital SLR camera, allowing the user to set the monitor to the desired viewing angle and simplify high and low-angle shootings. By rotating the monitor 180 degrees to face the subject, the user can activate the self-portrait shutter button, which is provided in addition to the regular shutter-release button, to keep a firm hold of the camera when shooting self portraits.

High-precision autofocus system with SAFOX X module

The Pentax K-S2 features the SAFOX X AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation. With its 11 sensors including nine cross-type sensors in the middle, this AF system assures pinpoint focus on a subject at a minimum brightness level of as low as –3 EV. Its select-area expansion function ensures that the sensor module keeps tracking a moving subject, even when the subject moves out of a pre-assigned auto-tracking area. Its AF hold function maintains the in-focus position, even when the AF system loses track of the subject after once capturing it in focus.

High-resolution images and a super-high sensitivity

The Pentax K-S2 features a high-performance CMOS image sensor with approximately 20.12 effective megapixels to deliver super-high-resolution images. It is also designed without an optical AA (anti-aliasing) filter to optimize the imaging power of its high-performance image sensor. By coupling this image sensor with the high-performance PRIME MII imaging engine, the K-S2 delivers true-to-life, fine-gradation images by effectively minimizing noise at all sensitivity levels, even during super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 51200.

In-body shake reduction mechanism and anti-aliasing filter simulator

The Pentax K-S2 features a SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism to effectively minimize camera shake and assure sharp, blur-free images, even in camera-shake-prone conditions. By applying microscopic vibrations to the image sensor unit at the sub-pixel level during image exposure, the Pentax K-S2’s AA filter simulator provides the same level of moiré-reduction effect as an optical AA filter. Unlike an optical AA filter, which always creates the identical result, this innovative simulator lets you not only switch the AA filter effect on and off, but also adjust the level of the effect, so the user can effortlessly apply the desired effect to a particular scene or subject.

Wireless LAN compatibility

The Pentax K-S2 features Wi-Fi and NFC for easy pairing with smartphones and other communications devices. Also by installing the Pentax Image Sync application on a communications device, the user can effortlessly control the Pentax K-S2’s aperture, shutter-speed and ISO-sensitivity settings, release its shutter, check the live-view image, and even browse and upload recorded images onto SNS sites such as Facebook remotely.

Full HD movie recording

Equipped with a built-in stereo microphone, the Pentax K-S2 captures beautiful Full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels; 30/25/24 frame rate) in the H.264 recording format, along with natural, lively stereo sound. It also assures flawless, high-quality movies even with fast-moving subjects.

What is Refurbished:

The term ‘refurbished' refers to products that have been returned to the manufacturer for any number of reasons, like if a retail store opens a product for showcasing and it is not purchased, or if an item was returned by a consumer after short-term use, than it's sent back to the manufacturer to be factory reconditioned.

Once returned to the manufacturer, the entire item is completely checked to assure it meets all factory specifications and is quality tested again. Products may be supplied in the original boxes which will be a little tatty, or a new plain box.
