Ricoh has just rolled out an updated version of the original K3 in the Pentax K-3 II. The successor boasts a slew of updates, the most notable of which being the Pixel Shift Resolution feature, which helps minimize false color.
Labeled as a semi-pro DSLR camera, the K-3 II means business. It’s packed with the same 24 megapixel sensor and 27-point AF system as its predecessor, and it also features the same built to last durable construction. Of course not all things are the same. This new shooter has been equipped with a sensor-shift IS and 4.5 stops of shake reduction alongside built-in GPS, autmoatic horizon detection and gyro-sensor based panning detection. One thing that fans of the brand will notice is the fact that the K-3 II doesn’t include a built-in flash. This Pentax shooter will go on sale this May with a sticker price of $1,100.
