    26X zoom lens (22.3-580mm equivalent)

    Close the distance between you and the perfect shot with the X-5’s super-telephoto 26X zoom lens (22.3-580mm equivalent). This zoom feature ensures extreme flexibility for any scene or subject, near or far.

    Tiltable 3.0 inch, high definition LCD screen

    Enjoy effortless image composition and image playback with the X-5’s large tiltable 3.0 inch, high definition LCD screen. This exceptional LCD screen offers sharp image viewing, even in bright sunlight, and allows users to shoot from high and low angles to keep the subject neatly framed in the image area.

    Full 1080p30 HD video, h.264 compression

    Capture full HD 1080p widescreen video at 30 FPS with high quality h.264 compression, and enjoy creative movie playback features, such as High-speed Movie mode for slow-motion playback and Time-lapse Movie mode for fast-forward playback.

    HDMI port

    Share your work with ease as the X-5’s micro-HDMI port (Type D) plays back beautiful high resolution images, video and sound to external devises such as HDTVs.

    Super Macro Mode

    Get closer to the flowers, capture the smallest details, and reveal super crisp expressions from your subject, from as near as 1cm, with the Super Macro Mode. The X-5 also comes with an Auto Macro function, which automatically switches the focus mode to Macro when it detects the subject is close to the lens.

    16 megapixel CMOS sensor

    Capture beautiful, high resolution, low noise imagery with a state-of-the-art image processing engine and back-illuminated, high performance, 16 megapixel CMOS sensor. Even while shooting up to ISO 6400, the PENTAX X-5 provides users with very high resolution images.

    Triple Shake Reduction

    The X-5’s triple shake reduction system couples the PENTAX developed mechanical sensor-shift-type Shake Reduction (SR) mechanism with a digital SR mode for stills or movie SR mode for video to more effectively compensate for camera shake. This hybrid system assures sharp, blur-free images and video, even in the most challenging camera-shake prone and low lighting conditions.

    260,000 dot resolution electronic viewfinder

    The 260,000 dot resolution electronic viewfinder provides effortless composition and DSLR-like handling. What you see is what you get as the X-5’s viewfinder diopter adjustment delivers a consistently clear view of the subject, even under bright sunshine.

    Fast Face Detection technology

    Create the perfect group shot or a gorgeous portrait with the X-5’s Fast Face Detection technology, as it quickly finds up to 32 subjects in any scene for impeccably focused and exposed faces.
