The K-3 II features an impressive 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C CMOS sensor, along with a high-performance 27-point AF system and 8.3 fps of continuous shooting. The newly developed Pixel Shift Resolution System delivers more truthful color reproduction and finer details, while significantly lowering high-sensitivity noise levels. The updated PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System, supported by the 86K-pixel RGB light-metering sensor, makes the K-3 II the most responsive subject tracking of all PENTAX DSLRs. And thanks to its new high-precision gyro-sensor, the you get more effective camera-shake compensation up to 4.5EV steps.
The newly integrated, built-in GPS and Electronic Compass extends the range of your shooting journeys, while the built-in ASTROTRACER function eliminates the need of an extra accessory to capture celestial objects like stars. The weather-resistant and dust proof magnesium alloy body allows you to keep shooting in the most extreme field conditions.
Designed for the demanding photographer, the K-3 II features a 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding image quality. The Prime III image-processing engine assures high-quality image output up to ISO 51200.
Never miss the perfect shot with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3 fps, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting.
When used with our new PENTAX lenses,* the AF.S focusing speed on K-3II is even faster since the lens activation method is optimized to eliminate redundant movement at the last moment’s “fine adjustment” step.

The SAFOX 11 autofocus module maximizes 27 AF sensors and a vast light sensitivity range of –3EV to +18EV. This focus module includes 25 cross sensors and three AF sensors designed to detect the light flux of an F2.8 lens, so it's easy to obtain pinpoint focus on the subject when using a large-aperture lens. The expanded AF area allows for accurate focusing, even on moving subjects.
The built-in GPS module extends the range of every photo shooting expedition. Use the electronic compass to help find your way while the GPS Log lets you keep track of where your journey has taken you. ASTROTRACER functionality is built-in to let you capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets, without the need of an extra accessory.
Wirelessly connect with your smartphone using the Flu-card for PENTAX. Enjoy wireless image browsing, live viewing and operate functions such as shutter release, tough operation for AF point and exposure settings.
The Pixel Shift Resolution System captures 4 images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image — then synthesizes all 4 into one composite image. The result is exceptional detail and true-to-life color accurate images as this innovative system obtains full RGB information from every pixel. The composite process also effectively reduces image noise in high ISO settings.
The K-3 II assures the most responsive subject tracking in all PENTAX DSLRs thanks to the combination of a state-of-the-art AF algorithm and the advanced PENTAX Real-Time Scene Analysis System. Enjoy improved AF tracking performance in AF Continuous mode, while providing an extra-wide measurable luminance range (–3EV to +18EV).
The improved in-body shake reduction (SR) mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake up to 4.5EV steps regardless of the lens type mounted.
What you see is what you get with the K-3 II. Experience magnification at approximately 0.95x.
The large, easy-to-view, 3.2-inch high-resolution LCD monitor with approx. 1,037,000 dots (in a 3:2 aspect ratio) features a protective tempered-glass front panel for added durability. The unique air-gapless construction effectively reduces the reflection and dispersion of the light to improve visibility during outdoor shooting.
With 92 seals, the K-3 II boasts a fully weather and cold proof design to resist water, fog, snow, sand and dust, for top performance in extreme field conditions. Enjoy full HD movie capture in the h.264 format (1920x1080 pixels; 60i/30p). Interval movie mode captures a series of 4K-resolution movie clips at a fixed interval.
