Pentax’s new reflex camera features a 24-megapixel PS-C sensor and a water and dirt-resistant body.
More devices each day are water-resistant nowadays, what started like a simple nice extra is now becoming sort of a standard. It’s very nice to see a water-resistant DSLR camera, since no one wants to get a 1000-Euro camera ruined by mere water.
It features a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with low-pass filter simulator, software that simulates such filter instead of featuring it physically. It has an ISO sensitivity of up to 51200 and can take up to 8 pictures per second in burst mode.
It also features a stabilization system on the camera itself instead of on the objective, like it’s commonly seen. It has a 27-point detection focus, can record 50i video at 1920 x 1080 resolution or at 4K resolution for about one minute. It also has a 3.2-inch camera with a 1-megapixel resolution.
It will cost 1649 dollars along with an 18-5 WR, or just 1299 dollars for the camera only.
