The upcoming Pentax K APS-C flagship DSLR camera will have a newly designed viewfinder with an eye sensor


Ricoh released some additional information on the upcoming Pentax K APS-C flagship DSLR camera and specifically the newly designed viewfinder with an eye sensor

In this new model, we have paid careful attention to every detail, including its easy-to-view optical viewfinder and superb operability, two elements that are so important for both viewing comfort and camera handling when you’re taking photos.

While the K-3 II’s viewfinder window is almost on the same plane as the LCD panel on the camera’s back panel, the new model’s window protrudes from its LCD panel by nearly 3.2 millimeters.

This prevents your nose from coming in contact with the LCD panel and lets you look into the viewfinder from a more natural position.

When you look into the viewfinder, the sensor detects this action and dims the LCD panel so that it doesn’t obstruct your view.

Although some older models had a function that let you turn the LCD screen off by depressing the shutter-release button halfway down, we decided to use this new automated eye sensor technology for the first time at PENTAX. We thought this would let the photographer completely concentrate on the photography, from the moment they first look into the viewfinder.
