The new Pentax K100D Super digital SLR camera is equipped with the Pentax original Shake Reduction (SR) system to reduce camera shake for sharp, blur-free images even under demanding shooting conditions such as when using a telephoto lens or when shooting in low light without a flash. The SR mechanism is designed to minimize 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 Pentax K100D Super SLR gives the equivalent to approximately 2 to 3.5 shutter steps of compensation.
