    “4K video recording” is not correct; it’s interval movie, just like on other Pentax cameras.
    The step forward regarding video seems to be the AF – and the fact that the sensor has integrated PDAF means it’s a new one.

  • TinusVerdino

    It probably has the same sensor as the A6000

    • Neopulse

      It’s had the same Sony sensor from the first incarnation from the of the K-3 in 2013, before the release of the A6000, but after the Nikon models.

      • TinusVerdino

        This is not a K-3 or it’s successor. Pentax has never had PDAF on it’s sensor.

        • Neopulse

          I know it isn’t a K-3 successor. I was responding to the sensor comment thinking it was about the maker and megapixel density used in previous models. You didn’t really mention on sensor PD to that degree that’s all. Chances are yeah you are right on that. Could be a successor to the K-1 (although it says DSLR) who knows.

          • TinusVerdino

            Sense you are making not much. it’s a k-s2 successor :p

          • Neopulse

            Actually if anything it’s a K-50 successor. KS-2 is a lower tier. I messed up on the naming of the model. It’s the “K-01” the mirrorless camera I was trying to refer to as a mirrorless successor if it happen to have on sensor PDAF. My mistake in that regard.

          • TinusVerdino

            K-s2 isn’t a lower tier. It’s the K-50 successor but the k-50 became lower tier after the k-s2 was launched.

    It really is time for a significant video improvement. They’ve been essentially running the 2012 K-01/K-30 video offering for 4+ years now, with only incremental improvements.

    That original change gave us full manual control and 1080p @ 24fps, but TOOK AWAY mechanical stabilisation during video recording. It also gave focus peaking and digital zoom, but not during video recording, (you know, when you need it most…)

    Pentax now lags well behind every manufacturer in this respect, with even Fuji jumping ahead recently, and previously stills only companies such as Olympus making huge improvements also.

    Pentax will have to do a lot of work to improve the video, just to catch these guys back up even.

    I want it, a lot of Pentaxians also do. We need real stabilisation during video (not that Movie SR crap that warps your footage to hell), mic in, headphone out, focus peaking that works during video capture, and some bit rates that prioritise image quality over smaller file sizes?!

    Small changes really. Hoping…
