PENTAX K-3 - EISA Award

PENTAX K-3 - EISA Award | Pentax | Scoop.it
EUROPEAN ADVANCED DSLR CAMERA 2014-2015 - Pentax K-3: The Pentax K-3 has many of the features you’d expect to find in a professional-level camera: a weather-resistant body with 92 dust and moisture seals; an image-stabilised 24-megapixel CMOS sensor; an advanced 86,000-pixel RGB metering sensor and 8.3fps high-speed burst shooting. Opting to omit the low-pass filter for maximum resolution, Pentax has developed an ingenious solution to eliminate the risk of moiré – the K-3’s user-selectable AA filter simulator uses the sensor’s stabilisation motors to gently vibrate the sensor during exposure. The Prime III processor enables shooting up to ISO 51,200 with low image noise, while the new SAFOX 11 AF system features 27 points for fast and accurate focusing. With a great feature set, high image quality and a comprehensive range of lenses and accessories, the Pentax K-3 is a great choice for the enthusiast photographer.

Being an addict of large and spacious 6x6 negatives on 120 film, I never would have thought I'd own a 110 camera someday. But when I came across the Pentax Auto 110 on an auction site, it was just too darn cute not to buy it. So I placed a bid, won the auction, and am now the proud owner of the tiniest SLR ever made!
