24 effective megapixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensorDesigned for the demanding photographer, the K-3 features 24 effective megapixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding high resolution imagery.
Fastest continuous shooting at 8.3FPSNever miss a single moment with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3 FPS, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting.
Selectable Anti-Aliasing FilterEnjoy the world’s first selectable anti-aliasing filter, giving the user the ability to easily toggle anti-aliasing functionality on or off, for supreme resolution and zero limitations. This breakthrough technology eliminates the need to commit to either supreme resolution or superior moiré control, by providing both options in a single camera body. Newly developed for the K-3, the anti-aliasing simulator* applies microscopic vibrations to the image sensor unit at the subpixel level during image exposure, generating the same level of moiré-reduction effect as an optical anti-aliasing filter. * This function is most effective with a shutter speed of 1/1000 second or slower. This function is not available during HDR shooting.
Professional H.264 VideoEnhance your video recording experience with full HD movie capture in the H.264 format (60i/50i/30p/24p), also including the ability to switch from still image to video recording with the flip of a dedicated switch.
