Pentax K-3 DSLR: 24 megapixels with anti-aliasing filter (0)

Pentax announces its latest DSLR camera for the serious photography junkies. The Pentax K-3 DSLR sports a 24-megapixel imagine sensor and a new WiFi-equipped SDHC card called FLU, which gives the photogs remote control of the camera using any device with a web browser. Owners of the K-3 would also have more control over the shots with a new anti-aliasing filter that sets the image's smoothness or rawness without having to switch cameras or lenses. The DSLR also comes with an updated 27-point autofocus system, 8.3fps burst shooting mode, full HD video recording capability, headphone and microphone terminals, and the ability to capture 4K-quality videos at fixed intervals. "Ricoh Imaging (the company behind Pentax) has made an investment to ensure that our product lineup features the most complete and capable APS-C offering in our history," said Jim Malcolm, Ricoh Imaging's executive vice president, in a press statement. "This goal was realized with the introduction of the K-3. Its unmatched feature set and revolutionary technology set a benchmark of excellence that raises the bar for the entire APS-C (Advanced Photo System type-C image sensor format) category." This new camera is cased in a weather-resistant, moisture-tight body with no protruding devices that would prevent the door from closing shut. The Pentax K-3 will have its retail run this November for only $1,300 for the body. Add $400 and you also get an 18-135mm/ f3.5-5.6 lens, while another $100 would give you a 16GB FLU card.

Pentax WG3 Rugged Digital Camera (1)

Digital cameras need to come with better features if ever they would want to remain relevant in a world where smartphones with cameras now rule. More people tend to prefer using their smartphone to take photos instead of compact digital cameras these days, partially due to convenience. Digital cameras can try to cover the places where most smartphone cameras dare not venture into. That would probably be in rugged territory. In such places, people would prefer using rugged digital cameras like the new Pentax WG3. The Pentax WG3 Rugged Digital Camera is designed for taking pictures in rugged environments. It is waterproof for up to 14 meters and shockproof for drops from up to 2 meters. It also comes with a high sensitivity back illuminated 16M CMOS image sensor, 4x optical zoom lens and can record in Full HD video aside from 16M still images. Other features include a dual shake reduction system, a wide frame 3.0-inch LCD monitor and six LED Macro Lights for macro shooting. The new Pentax WG3 Rugged Digital Camera is expected to have these rugged cameras out anytime this year. There are no details yet on how much these cameras will cost. Image Source: Pentax Read More

Pentax Optio W80 (0)

If there is some sort of a race going on that we have not heard of, Pentax appears to be winning when it comes to creating the toughest point-and-shoot camera.  The Pentax Optio W80 can be brought anywhere and we mean anywhere, whether you are taking a picture while submerged up to 5 meters underwater, on a hot sandy desert, while riding a turbulent plane ride, or on a bad day in Moscow at -10°C.But those rough and tough features are just the scratch of the surface, as this digital camera can capture photos up to 12 megapixels, with a 5x zoom lens that offers a focal range between 28 and 140mm.  It can also create videos in HD settings, with 1280 x 720 resolution at 30 frames per second.There are some catches, though.  A review on the Photography Blog claims that while the anti-shake system simply slows the camera down, the image quality is strained by excessive noise even at the lowest ISO.  Nevertheless, the Pentax Optio W80 rakes high points in features and ease-of-use.The Pentax Optio W80 is available in online retail outlets for as low as US$299.95.  You can choose between red, blue, yellow, and gray.Image source:  Pentax Read More
