What is af S mode?
AF-S (AF single, sometimes called single area AF) mode, is good for photographing subjects that don’t move, such as flowers or portraits etc. It locks the focus on the non moving object that you want to photograph. You can then recompose the shot and take the photograph.
Does the Pentax KP have focus bracketing?
The Pentax KP also brings with it some new bracketing functionality not seen in past models. For example, Depth-of-Field bracketing allows you to bracket the camera’s selected aperture value, while Motion Bracketing allows you to do much the same with shutter speeds.
What is AF-S vs AF-C?
AF-C (AF-continuous or servo mode) is used for photographing moving subjects. AF-S means single shot and is used for subject that is stationary. AF-A is where the camera decides whether the subject is moving or not and tries to alternate between the servo and single shot mode accordingly.
What is Catch focus?
Catch-in focus is a powerful technique that allows DSLRs to use information from the autofocus system to confirm focus even when using manual lenses. What’s more, with this technique the camera will automatically take a picture once your subject comes into focus!

Press the AF mode button and use the command dial to toggle between AFC and AFS. Back button should still work.

Do lenses need to be calibrated?
