K-3 II Black body kit

The PENTAX K-3 II delivers exceptionally high-resolution images supported by such state-of-the-art technologies as an enhanced shake reduction system — the most highly effective in the K series — and a newly developed super-resolution technology called the Pixel Shift Resolution System. The K-3 II also features other renowned technologies, including: an APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.35 effective megapixels; an AA-filter-free design for high-resolution image reproduction; a high-performance 27-point AF system; high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 8.3 images per second; and a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction. It even incorporates a GPS module to perform various GPS functions, such as accurate recording of shooting locations and simplified, high-precision tracking of celestial bodies, to eliminate the need for an optional GPS unit. These outstanding features allow K-3 II users to enjoy advanced, multi-featured photo shooting with a wider variety of scenes and subjects than ever before.

The field camera steps into a high definition era

AA-filter-free 24M CMOS image sensor

Imaging element for capturing the delicate details of color and light

Approx. 24.35 effective megapixels. Under design concept to give first priority on resolution, K-3II is an AA (anti-aliasing)-filter-free model. This enables full use of the CMOS sensor’s resolving power for excellent, sharp image quality. This model can faithfully recreate the three-dimensionality and atmosphere of a scene with all of its textures. 

AA filter simulator

An unique function that prevents false colors and moiré only when necessary

The AA filter simulator realized the operation of the optical AA filter that reduces false colors and moiré, by applying microscopic vibration of the CMOS image sensor. You can select from two levels. In addition, you can set the bracket that changes the effects for capturing three successive shots.

*Effects are easily achieved when shooting at shutter speeds slower than 1/1000 sec.

*Cannot be used with some shooting modes, including Pixel Shift Resolution

Pixel Shift Resolution

The in-body SR (shake reduction) mechanism is used to move the image sensor unit in minute increments, a single pixel pitch at a time, to capture four shots. Pixel Shift Resolution merges those shots into a single image to generate an ultra high-definition image. This method differs from the traditional Bayer method, which acquires only a single element of color information for single pixel, by acquiring all RGB color information for individual pixel. This difference makes it excellent for detail and color reproduction, creating super high-definition images. This also prevents false colors from occurring theoretically, and also has a high-sensitivity noise reduction effect when compared to normal shooting.

Photographed RAW images can be processed on the camera and also developed using the included utility software as Pixel Shift Resolution.

*Be sure to use a tripod for thorough stabilization when shooting.
*When shooting, use Drive Mode options: Self-timer, Remote Control, or Mirror Lock-up Shooting.
*Effects may not be gained if the subject moves or the camera shakes.

Powerful gear in the field 
The evolution of the field camera, with a built-in GPS function

 

Built-in GPS

Record location information and such only with K-3II

The K-3II features a built-in GPS function. Only with the camera itself, you can record the information of shooting location, facing direction, and the shooting date and time (Coordinated Universal Time) in image data. The K-3II’s GPS button allows you to easily activate the GPS function when shooting.

*GPS data will not be recorded in conditions where GPS information cannot be obtained.

 

ASTROTRACER
Easy Astronomical tracking for capturing vivid stars

Coupled with in-body SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, this function easily tracks and photographs astronomical body such as stars. The latitude obtained by the GPS function, and camera position (horizontal/vertical tilt and facing direction) detected by the magnetic and acceleration sensors are used to calculate the movement of astronomical body. The CMOS sensor is synchronized with the movement of astronomical body, making it possible to capture stars as points of light not as trails of light even during long exposures.

HDR High-Dynamic Range
Capture hand-held high dynamic range and re-compose after shooting

From three differing exposure images, a single image with a wide tonal range is generated. Because this model automatically corrects* for slight misalignments between images, you can easily shoot hand-held HDR images. In addition to Auto which provides a natural finish, there are different effect strengths (HDR 1/2/3), and exposure bracket value (±1/2/3) settings available. The three different images are saved in RAW format, giving you complete artistic freedom to develop or merge them as you please.

Multi-exposure
Full-featured compositing methods to support advanced compositions

You can shoot any number of images from 2 to 2,000, and overlap them to form a single image. In Live View, the merged results are displayed transparently until shooting takes place, making composition easy.

[ Bright ]
Bright sections of each image are merged. This is also effective for leaving dark sections as is, and overlapping brighter objects such as the moon, fireworks, or illuminated buildings.

[ Average ]
The exposure is averaged and merged. Even without adjusting the exposure for each shot the merged image results in a standard exposure for easy multi-exposure shooting.

[ Additive ]
Exposure is added and merged. For example, by moderating the exposure for each image, the contrast is ref lected in the finished result.

Movie function

Smoothly record quick movement in Full HD movies

Utilize the rich lineup of interchangeable lenses including fisheye and super-telephoto to capture impressive Full HD 60i/30p movies.

*The compression format is Motion JPEG, and the file format is AVI.
*Shooting intervals can be selected from 2, 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds, 1, 5, 10, 30 minutes, or 1 hour.
*Shooting time can be set from 14 seconds to 99 hours (changes due to shooting interval).
*When playing back a 4K Interval Movie Record, be sure to use a computer environment that can play back 4K movies.

In-body RAW data development
Apply finishing touches just the way you want, without a PC

The K-3II provides in-body development of RAW-format files, with the developed files saved as separate TIFF or JPEG files. You can even adjust white-balance and custom-image parameters during RAW data development. Since this feature provides a PC-free environment, you can work on your RAW files anywhere and anytime.

Interval Shooting

Capture subjects changing over time with the automatic timer

This model automatically shoots for a specified interval. This feature is useful for capturing a subject that changes over time. The interval can be set from 2 seconds to 24 hours, and the number of shots can be set from 2 to 2,000. The time to begin shooting can also be specified.

[ Interval Composite ]
Images shot over an interval are overlapped to form a single image. The same options are available as in Multi-exposure: Average, Additive, and Bright. You can also save images in progress.

PRIME III

High-performance imaging engine delivers significantly-improved imaging performance

To take full advantage of PENTAX’s experience and expertise in digital-imaging and data-processing technologies, the K-3II has adopted an imaging engine used in PENTAX 645Z. This high-performance engine assures high-efficiency, high-speed processing of captured image data.

AF point mode

Versatile modes for matching the subject and composition

In addition to limiting the number of AF points used, you can also set the position of AF points. [Auto (27 AF Points)] uses all sensor points, [Select] uses a single point only, [Spot] narrows down the range, and [Zone Select] and [Expanded Area AF] are useful for moving subjects.

ISO 51200

Low noise/high ISO sensitivity expand the realms of expression

The low noise CMOS image sensor and powerful noise processing ability of PRIME III enable high-sensitivity, low noise shooting. You can also adjust the ISO AUTO range and noise reduction effects when necessary.

Lens correction

Deals with aberration, image-field edge light drops, and image quality deterioration due to diffraction

The camera compensates for distortion due to lens characteristics, image-field edge light drops, chromatic aberration of magnification, and reduced resolution due to aperture stop down (diffraction compensation). Color fringe correction is also carried out when processing RAW images.

SAFOX 11

An advanced, high-speed, high-precision AF system

The SAFOX 11 AF system is adopted. It includes a high-sensitivity AF sensor with superb responsiveness. By using a diffractive lens in the optical system, chromatic aberration is corrected in the AF unit, enabling high-precision detection. This model is also equipped with a light source detection sensor, which compensates for slight focus deviations that can easily occur under special artificial light sources.

Reliable auto-exposure control down to -3EV

Higher precision for ISO sensitivity and exposure control of low-light scenes

The RGB metering sensor with approx. 86,000-pixel also assures outstanding performance in high-sensitivity shooting, with its measurable minimum luminance level expanded to as low as -3 EV (at ISO 100, with a 50mm F1.4 lens). In combination with the high-performance AF system capable of accurate focusing at -3 EV luminance level, this sensor performs brilliantly for low-light scenes where subjects cannot be visually recognized by the naked eyes.

27 sensor (25 cross-type sensors) AF system

Quickly capture the subject with complete composition freedom

With 27 AF sensor points, giving you complete freedom over the composition. 25 of those are cross-type sensor points that are excellent at tracking subjects

[F2.8 luminous flux compatible AF]
In addition to the center point, a high-precision AF point on the top and bottom are F2.8 luminous flux compatible. Useful for better accuracy when focusing is difficult using a large-diameter lens with a shallow depth of field.

[-3EV low-luminance AF]
By using a high-sensitivity AF sensor, the low-luminance limitation is expanded to -3EV (25 center sensors). This helps reduce situations where AF becomes slow in dark scenes, and when AF is affected by highly bright sections in backlit scenes. Also useful for accurately capturing low-contrast subjects.

Moving subject tracking

Works together with the Scene Analysis System to track subjects

The PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System has the ability to accurately detect
subject movement from people’s movements or color and continue monitoring this
movement. When linked with this system, the AF points move along with subject
movement. Using the advantage of densely placed AF points, highly accurate focus is maintained even for fast-moving subjects and high-speed continuous shooting.

*Available for AF mode Continuous AF (AF.C) and Auto Select AF (AF.A).

 

AF customization

Original tuning enables no-hesitation tracking

Performance demanded by AF changes according to subject movement and shooting conditions. The AF customization menu lets you fine tune AF properties. This feature flexibly conforms to a variety of photographer needs.
