Building upon the legacy of the award-winning K-3, the PENTAX K-3 II offers outstanding image quality and operability to meet a photographer’s greatest demands. It features an impressive 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C CMOS sensor and 8.3 frames per second of continuous shooting. The built-in ASTRO TRACER function simplifies astrophotography by eliminating the need of an extra accessory to capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets. This exceptional field camera allows you to get closer to the action in the most extreme conditions.
24 effective megapixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor
Designed for the demanding photographer, the K-3II features a 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding image quality. The Prime III image-processing engine assures high quality image output up to ISO 51200.
Fast, continuous shooting at 8.3FPS
Never miss the perfect shot with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3FPS, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting.
SAFOX 11 27-point AF System
The SAFOX 11 autofocus module maximizes 27 AF sensors and a vast light sensitivity range of –3EV to +18EV. This focus module includes 25 cross sensors and three AF sensors designed to detect the light flux of an F2.8 lens, making it easy to obtain pinpoint focus on the subject when using a large-aperture lens. The Expanded AF area allows for accurate focusing, even on moving subjects.
Built-in GPS functionality and Electronic Compass
The built-in GPS module extends the range of your photo shooting expedition. Use the Electronic compass to help find your way while GPS Log lets you keep track of where the trails have taken you. With the addition of ASTROTRACER, eliminate the need of an extra accessory with this functionality built directly into the camera to capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets.
Pixel Shift Resolution System
The Pixel Shift Resolution System captures 4 images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, and then synthesizes them into a single composite image. The result is exceptional detail and true-to-life color accurate images as this innovative system obtains full RGB information from every pixel. The composite process also effectively reduces image noise in high ISO settings.
Improved AF Tracking Performance
The K-3 II assures the most responsive subject tracking in all PENTAX DSLRs thanks to the combination of a state-of-the-art AF algorithm and the advanced PENTAX Real-Time Scene Analysis System. Enjoy improved AF tracking performance in AF Continuous mode, while providing an extra-wide measurable luminance range (–3EV to +18EV).
Fully Weather Sealed
With 92 seals, the K-3 II boasts a fully weather and cold proof design to resist water, fog, snow, sand and dust, for top performance in extreme field conditions.
