The Pentax 645Z Goes To The Beach, Puts Weather-Proofing To The Test
Quesabesde decided to put their review unit of the Pentax 645z to the test and took it for a little trip to the beach. In the video below, the camera gets tossed onto the sand, endures a man made sand storm, then gets a quick rinse from the public showers. And still works just fine.
Pentax Announced K-5 II and Non-AA filter K-5 IIs DSLRs!
Pentax announced the follow up to their popular flagship K-5 DSLR and released not only the K-5 II, but a also a version that does not have an anti-aliasing filter built in, the K-5 IIs. The K-5 II and the K-5 IIs both sport a 16.28MP APS-C format CMOS sensor and an improved 11 Point SAFOX X autofocus system that has a working range from -3 EV to 18 EV. And this being a Pentax, the K-5 II and IIs are fully weather-sealed, dust-proof, and cold-resistant. And just like the K-5, both II and IIs also have in-body shake reduction (SR) stabilization that should give you a couple of extra stops.
