The K-3 II features an impressive 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C CMOS sensor, along with a high-performance 27-point AF system and 8.3 fps of continuous shooting. The newly developed Pixel Shift Resolution System delivers more truthful color reproduction and finer details, while significantly lowering high-sensitivity noise levels. The updated PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System, supported by the 86K-pixel RGB light-metering sensor, makes the K-3 II the most responsive subject tracking of all PENTAX DSLRs. And thanks to its new high-precision gyro-sensor, the you get more effective camera-shake compensation up to 4.5EV steps.
The newly integrated, built-in GPS and Electronic Compass extends the range of your shooting journeys, while the built-in ASTROTRACER function eliminates the need of an extra accessory to capture celestial objects like stars. The weather-resistant and dust proof magnesium alloy body allows you to keep shooting in the most extreme field conditions.
Never miss the perfect shot with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3 fps, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting.
When used with our new PENTAX lenses,* the AF.S focusing speed on K-3II is even faster since the lens activation method is optimized to eliminate redundant movement at the last moment’s “fine adjustment” step.
The built-in GPS module extends the range of every photo shooting expedition. Use the electronic compass to help find your way while the GPS Log lets you keep track of where your journey has taken you. ASTROTRACER functionality is built-in to let you capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets, without the need of an extra accessory.
