The PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction (SR) system in the K100D effectively offers a two-stop advantage for sharp and blur-free images even under difficult shooting conditions, such as using a telephoto lens or shooting in low light without a flash. The SR mechanism minimizes camera shake by oscillating the CCD image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed using magnetic force, while adjusting the speed of oscillation in proportion to the amount of camera shake detected by a built-in sensor. As a result, the system does not require special anti-shake lenses and can be used with almost all existing PENTAX interchangeable lenses.
