Pentax K-30 features a 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with an ISO range that extends up to ISO 12800 (expandable to ISO 25600), the camera also features a 3-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 921,000 dots. The K-30 is capable of shooting 1080p video at 30, 25, or 24 frames per second — dropping the resolution down to 720p will boost you up to 60fps — but what Pentax is really touting is the weather-sealed body. The camera is resistant to weather and dust, and has been tested to be operational at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
