Pentax IQ Zoom 135M cameras offer everything you could want in a compact package. Inaddition to its impressive 38-135mm zoom lens, it offers a host of otheroutstanding features that produce beautiful pictures frame after frame. With theIQZoom 135M, you enjoy the highest level of quality and performance.

The Features

  • Zoom in to catch the subject's subtle expressions, or zoom out to capture the entire scene with the powerful 38-135mm (3.6X) power zoom lens.
  • The IQZoom 135M is compact and lightweight and has an attractive silver finish. All controls, including the main switch and the zoom lever, are functionally laid out on the upper part of the body to ensure maximum ease of operation.
  • The passive autofocus system ensures pinpoint focusing, even when shooting a subject at a distance or through window glass. The wide five-point focus frame captures images in sharp focus, even when positioned off-center or when two subjects are standing apart.
  • The sophisticated six-segment multi-pattern metering system measures ambient light levels in six separate areas of the image field to ensure optimum exposure on the subject under various lighting conditions.
  • With automatic backlight compensation, the camera tells you when your subject needs more light.
  • The large, easy-to-read LCD panel provides a wide range of useful information by using large icons and numerals to ensure smooth and simple camera operation.
  • The IQZoom 135M's zoom viewfinder automatically adjusts the image size in proportion to the selected focal length, making it easy to decide the best framing and composition - even in panorama mode. Its diopter adjuster enables the user to correct the viewfinder image to his/her individual eyesight.
  • The flash automatically discharges under low light and strongly backlit conditions. It also offers flash-on and flash-off modes for special applications.
  • To ensure that all your subjects look beautiful and clear-eyed, the IQZoom 135M offers red-eye reduction, which reduces the red-eye effect that may appear in your subject's eyes with flash use.
  • The electronic self-timer delays the shutter release by 10 seconds, allowing the photographer to take a self-portrait or join in a group shot.
  • The IQZoom 135M offers remote control convenience using one of two optional remote controls. The Remote Control F offers three-second-delay shutter-release, while the Remote Control E provide remote shutter-release plus three-step zooming control (at 38mm, 70mm and 135mm settings).
  • When the camera is left unused for three minutes (or five minutes in remote control mode) with the power on, the IQZoom 135M automatically shuts the power off to conserve battery power.
  • Panorama mode can be selected at any time in order to capture spectacular landscapes or eye-catching group photos. Selection is just a simple twist of the panorama lever.
  • The IQZoom 135M Date automatically records the date or day and time onto the photograph. It even shifts the position of data imprinting when the panorama mode is selected. This feature can be turned off when desired.
