Photo Expert Mason Resnick Takes Industry’s “First Look” at the PENTAX K-3
Adorama Learning Center’s Mason Resnick, a technology and photo industry expert, is one of the first to review one of the PENTAX K-3 early models. An excerpt from Mason’s “First Look” review: “Selectable Anti-Aliasing Filter: The K-3′s most significant innovation is a first-ever Selectable Anti-Aliasing filter, giving the user the ability to easily toggle anti-aliasing functionality on or off, for supreme resolution and zero limitations. There is no physical filter; instead, using the same technology that powers the camera’s sensor-based Shake Reduction technology, when the anti-aliasing simulator is turned on, microscopic vibrations are applied 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. The image is then computationally fine-tuned to remove any aliasing artifacts.” The rest of Mason’s “First Look, PENTAX K-3” article can be read athttp://www.adorama.com/alc/0014326/blogarticle/Pentax-K-3-First-Look.
