New Super Fast Pentax 24 Megapixel Digital SLR Announced

By David Richards | Wednesday | 09/10/2013

A new 24 megapixel Pentax digital SLR camera is set to be launched in Australia, capable of shooting 22 RAW or 60 JPEG images at a maximum speed of 8.3 frames per second the new Ricoh offering uses a new PRIME III imaging engine to deliver what has been described as "brilliant" shots.

The Pentax K-3, rumoured late last month, also has an anti-aliasing simulator that has the same level of moir? reduction as an optical anti-aliasing filter, which can also be adjusted in tensity or switched off altogether.

The K-3 uses a shake reduction mechanism that can be used with any compatible Pentax interchangeable lenses. It also has a 27-point auto focus that works within the -3EV to +18EV range, Real-Time Scene Analysis that uses an 86,000-pixel RGB light-metering sensor and improved algorithms for exposure compensation and assisting the auto focus and white balancing.

It can record 1080p video at 30fps or 1080i at 60fps with a stereo mic terminal and an interval movie mode that can capture 4K-resolution clips, has a 3.2-inch LCD monitor, twin SD card slots, and an optical viewfinder with 100-percent field of view and 0.95 magnification. The dust-proof and weather-resistant magnesium alloy camera also supports smartphones, thanks to the optional 16GB FLU card for Pentax, which provides an app-based live view and the option to browse and download images to a smartphone or tablet.

Shipping in November, the Pentax K-3 will cost around $1,500 in Australia.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
