When compared to the original K-3, it’s clear the K-3 II’s core credentials haven’t changed much. The real updates are the inclusion of GPS, an improved AF algorithm for continuous focusing and Pixel Shift Resolution and Astrotracer functions.
+ In-body image stabilisation, + Quick autofocusing system, + Pixel Shift Resolution feature, + Unique astrotracer feature for astrophotography
- No touch/Articulation to LCD screen, - No Wi-Fi/NFC connectivity, - Only 27 autofocusing points
The Pentax K-3 II D-SLR adds some features to its predecessor, including an in-camera GPS, but does so at the cost of the built-in flash.
Affordable. Solid, weather-sealed design. 24-megapixel image sensor omits OLPF. 27-point AF system. In-camera shake reduction. Pixel Shift Resolution shooting mode improves detail. OLPF simulation mode. 8fps shooting rate. In-camera GPS. Pentaprism viewfinder. Sharp rear LCD. Dual SD slots.
Omits in-camera flash. Astrotracer function is hit or miss. Burst rate slows when tracking focus is enabled. Lacks in-camera Wi-Fi. Disappointing video features.
A few creative features are on hand for those who like to experiment with the look of their images in-camera. There are digital filter effects (Toy Camera, Retro and so on), various scene modes, HDR (high dynamic range) capture, and the option to create multiple exposures in-camera.
Pixel Shift high-res shooting mode, Solid build, Intuitive controls and menus, Excellent image quality
No touchscreen or vari-angle screen, No built-in Wi-Fi, Noisy autofocusing, Only modest improvements over the K-3
The Pentax K-3 II has proved to be a highly-capable camera. Like its predecessor (the K-3 ), it delivers an impressive level of image quality and performance. Furthermore, its class-leading ergonomics, weather sealing, and accessible user interface make it a joy to use in the field.
Impressive detail at low ISOs, Effective anti-moire tools, Innovative pixel shift super resolution for still scenes, Very comfortable grip, Rugged, weather-sealed body, User-friendly menu system, Built-in GPS, Fast 8.3 FPS bursts, Shutter rated for 200,000 cycles, Fast everyday performance,...
Astrotracer requires frequent & precise calibration, Out-of-camera JPEGs struggle to keep up with RAW image quality, AF tracking algorithms lag behind competitors, No on board flash or built-in wireless triggering, No wired tethering support, wi-fi performance via FluCard is lackluster, Electronic...
The Pentax K-3 II is the latest flagship DSLR from Ricoh and one which, on paper, offers a number of interesting upgrades over its predecessors. We recently spent a couple of weeks with the surprisingly compact DSLR to see if features including an enhanced in-body shake reduction and a Pixel Shift...
This is a minor but welcome update of the outstanding K-3 which has been the top of the line Pentax DSLR for almost two years. Although a few people had some trouble with GPS locking up and the camera not turning off, it seems that most of us have had trouble free cameras.
Everything Good on K-3, GPS, Pixel Shift High Resolution, Better low light focus, faster focus
No built in flash
Great camera, excluding the FLU card. This is a great camera that matches or exceeds those of higher priced competitors. Have had professional photographers come away impressed with the camera vowing to trade in a Cannon for this model. The FLU card is not all it's cracked up to be.
Wounderful camera. Pixel shift produces great results, is fun to use, and effective in jpeg or raw formats. I use a remote shutter release in mirror-up mode. A remote release is very inexpensive. Shutter is buttery smooth and very quiet, even when used in continous mode (8.3 fps is really quick).
