Pentax K-3 II DSLR Body Only - PX16160

Building on Performance

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, along with a high-performance 27-point AF system and 8.3 frames per second of continuous shooting. The addition of the newly developed Pixel Shift Resolution System delivers more truthful colour reproduction and finer details while significantly lowering the level of high-sensitivity noise. With the updated PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System, supported by the 86K-pixel RGB light-metering sensor, the K-3 II has more responsive subject tracking. Thanks to its new high-precision gyro-sensor, the K-3 II assures more effective camera-shake compensation up to 4.5EV steps. The K-3 II’s newly integrated, built-in GPS and Electronic Compass extends the range of your photo shooting expedition, while the built-in ASTROTRACER function simplifies astrophotography by eliminating the need of an extra accessory to capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets. With a weather-resistant and dust proof magnesium alloy body, this exceptional field camera allows you to get closer to the action in the most extreme conditions.
