    1=CMOS Sensor

    In-body shake reduction (SR)

    This camera employs the original shake reduction (SR) mechanism. It effectively reduces camera shake with all lenses, from ultra-wide angle to super-telephoto. Using SR with an image stabilization effect of 3.5 stops*1, the camera automatically applies horizontal correction*2 for countering minute horizontal tilting that occurs when pressing the shutter button. It is also equipped with a DR (Dust Removal) cleaning function that uses high-speed SR vibration to remove dust from the image sensor.

    * Complies with CIPA standards (Uses f = 135mm,smc PENTAX DA18-135mm F3.5-5.6ED AL [IF] DC WR)
    * The maximum angle that can be corrected is ±1.5 when SR is off and ±1 when SR is on.
