Ricoh has announced the new Pentax K-3 II DSLR with the same 24MP sensor, 27-point AF and 8.3fps shooting found in the original K-3. The K-3 II, however, steps up in a number of areas with improved 4.5EV stops of shake reduction, faster AF algorithm, built-in GPS, gyro sensor panning and auto horizon correction.
Additionally, the Pentax K-3 II features a new Pixel Shift Resolution capability that shifts the image sensor by one pixel over 4 frames to allow it to capture all colors at each individual pixel. While the overall resolution doesn’t change (like it does on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II), the color rendition and overall sharpness of the image should be improved. [Read more…]
The Pentax K-3 II is expected to be announced later this week on April 23 as a replacement to the current Pentax K-3. The DSLR is expected to feature a 24MP APS-C sensor with no low pass filter and step up to 1080/60p video capture.
Below is what we expect to see spec-wise (machine translated) on the new camera. [Read more…]
