The first specs of the Pentax DSLR with a full frame image sensor have been leaked shortly after the company has announced the camera’s development.
Pentax is preparing to create a lot of buzz at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015, a major digital imaging even that takes place in Yokohama, Japan as of February 12.
In order to be ready for the show, the company has announced the development of a sought-after full frame DSLR, while revealing two lenses for this camera.
As the manufacturer has refused to confirm any details about the shooter, the rumor mill has leaked its first specs list, which includes a 36-megapixel sensor and pixel-shift technology.
Pentax full frame DSLR camera to feature 36-megapixel sensor
The leaked Pentax full frame DSLR specs list is said to offer a 36-megapixel CMOS sensor that does not have an anti-aliasing filter.
The shooter will employ a similar K-mount as APS-C-sized cameras, meaning that it will be compatible with existing K-mount lenses, albeit in crop mode.
As expected, the shooter will employ a built-in optical viewfinder with 100% frame coverage. On the back, a 3.2-inch tilting LCD screen will allow users to frame photos and videos in Live View mode.
It will be aimed at professionals, so it will offer space for two SD memory cards.
Leaked Pentax full frame DSLR specs list hints at impressive low-light capabilities
It is said that the DSLR will feature an on-sensor image stabilization system that will offer up to 3.5 stops of stabilization.
An RGB sensor with 86,000 pixels will be added along with a SAFOX XI autofocus system, which includes 27 Phase Detection AF points. Out of 27, 25 points will be cross-type.
There is no room for a built-in flash in the Pentax full frame DSLR specs list, but the camera will support external high-speed TTL flashes.
Its ISO sensitivity will range between 100 and 102,400, therefore low-light photographers might really appreciate this device.
Ricoh to add high-resolution mode to the Pentax FF DSLR
A source is also noting that the upcoming Pentax full frame DSLR camera will come packed with a high-resolution mode, just like the Hasselblad H5D 200c and Olympus E-M5 Mark II cameras.
These cameras are based on pixel-shift systems, which allow the camera to shift the sensor in order to capture higher-resolution photos of the same frame.
The system is said to be “slightly different” from the Hasselblad one as well as from the Olympus model, but it will eventually lead to high-resolution shots.
It is unclear whether or not Ricoh will reveal the Pentax full frame DSLR specs list at CP+ 2015. Until then, do not jump to conclusions and stick with us for more information.
