OMG This web site has NOT right info about the products, i came here by accident to read review about the camera i just bought and found complete wrong information, they said it doesnt have stabilization BUT it DOES, they said no HDR but it DOES have one. Just go to manufacture site to check all features
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

This camera HAS image stabilization - it called Pixel Track SR

It looks like Pentax has a system that bumps the ISO up and uses a faster shutter speed to reduce image blur, I am not sure if I would call that image stabilization.

I looked at their specs at their website and they have Pixel SR, etc. listed for their Stabilization. Maybe it is just digital? How much better is optical stabilization from digital anyways?

Hey @f2e2a6bb9419dcc147e115eb3a1c2104:disqus 
Unfortunately there is no image stabilization in this camera, the only reason I can think that they left it out was because it was one more moving part that might break if it was dropped, but I am not sure.

Is there really no image stabilization to this camera?
