The PENTAX K-1 II full-frame digital SLR camera is the new flagship model of the PENTAX K series, providing exceptional image quality and unprecedented performance. In addition to the outstanding image quality, this model provides excellent super-high-sensitivity imaging performance and much-improved operability — important factors expected in a top-of-the-line model — to accommodate a wider range of subjects and scenes. By coupling a newly incorporated accelerator unit with the PRIME IV imaging engine, it assures flawless, high-speed operation and excellent noise-reduction, improving image quality and super-high-sensitivity imaging performance. The PENTAX-developed Pixel Shift Resolution System — the latest super-resolution technology designed to optimize the image sensor’s imaging performance — has been upgraded to the Pixel Shift Resolution System II. This system features a newly developed Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution mode, which allows the photographer to capture super-high-sensitivity images in handheld shooting, by detecting the slight fluctuations of the subject’s position during continuous shooting. In addition to the conventional shooting style using a tripod, this innovative mode provides a new option for the photographer to enjoy super-high-sensitivity photography with a wider variety of subjects and scenes. The camera also comes equipped with a host of features and functions designed to optimize the photographer’s creativity and operational comfort, including a dependable magnesium-alloy body with dust proof, weather-resistant construction; an optical viewfinder with a nearly 100-percent field of view for real-time subject confirmation; a sophisticated shake-reduction system; and a flexible tilt-type LCD monitor to accommodate various shooting angles.
