Weatherproof integrity

Pentax camera models have weatherproof integrity, and K-3 is no exception. All 92 seals allows the camera to function optimally in the most inhospitable environments. Heavy rain, snowstorm or sand does not stop the Pentax K-3.

Image stabilization (sensor shift), low pass-simulator & astro function

Pentax K-3 has built-in image stabilization that works with all lenses with K-mount.

Astro-photography with very slow shutter speeds, the sensor can move to compensate for the Earth's rotation at slow shutter speeds. This gives a perfect picture without motion blur (requires Pentax O-GPS is required).

SAFOX 11 AF module

Although AF module is new it now has 27 autofocus points, of which 25 are positioned in the center of the viewfinder. The module is very light sensitive and works in -3EV to + 18EV.

Pentax Real-Time Analysis System

K-3 is equipped with the new Real-Time Analysis System RGB metering sensor with 86,000 pixels and a new algorithm. This not only provides more accurate metering, but also a more precise autofocus and better white balance.

Continuous shooting 8.3 frames per second

Thanks to numerous innovations in K-3, the new, faster processor, new control mechanism that controls the shutter, mirror movement and blender individually, the K-3 can take 8.3 frames per second in continuous shooting. Up to 22 consecutive shots in RAW format, and up to 60 consecutive shots in JPEG format.
