Image Control for pure image creation enjoyment

The conventional image settings and effects have been merged to create a new finish adjustment function. 10 different Image Control options form the base of this feature. Based on these, you can adjust parameters to create photos the way you like. This includes the saturation, hue, high/low key adjustment, contrast, contrast (highlight and shadow), sharpness, shading, clarity, toning, filter effect, grain effect*, and HDR tone level.
● Parameters that can be adjusted differ depending on the selected Image Control option.
*Please update to Firmware ver. 1.20 to use this effect. Click here for the details.

Shoot up to 6 cm with Macro mode

Macro mode lets you focus with AF between 6 and 12 centimeters from the end of the lens. This delivers nearly the same 0.35x shooting magnification as when the GM-1 macro conversion lens is attached to the GR II without the need for an extra lens. Simply press the macro button to capture impressive close-up photos with rich bokeh effects.
* Macro mode and normal mode must be switched manually.
* The camera switches to Macro mode when the focus is set to [Snap] or [∞].

Capture star trails with the surrounding scenery even in the city with interval composite shooting

The setting items have been reviewed and specialized for star trail shooting. You can select this feature from drive modes for instant shooting. Shooting interval of continuous shooting becomes unnecessary to be set, and star trails can be set in 10 minute intervals (up to 24 hours), or you can choose from an unlimited shooting time. In addition, you can save interim images and set the time.
● Use a tripod. Note that slow shutter speed noise reduction and SR are turned off.
● The focus, exposure, and white balance are set on the first shot.

Expand expressive possibilities with 35mm/50mm Crop mode

With this feature, you can shoot at an angle of view equivalent to a focal length of 35 mm or 50 mm. The high resolution 24M image sensor makes it possible to record clear images up to 15M (35 mm) and 7M (50 mm). This mode gives you the opportunity to change the angle-of-view depending on the subject when shooting.
● The focal length is equivalent in 35mm format and the recorded pixels have an aspect ratio of 3:2.

1/250 sec., F4.0, ISO100, EV -0.3, WB: Multi Auto White Balance

Capture dreamlike shots with multi-exposure

There is no longer a frame limit for compositing. Composited results can be viewed in a transparent display so you can check the composition while overlaying another frame. You can change the exposure parameter*, shoot, reshoot, and finish shooting for each shot to easily create exactly the type of photo you have in mind.
* Exposure compensation, ISO speed, aperture, and shutter speed can be adjusted based on the exposure mode set for the first frame. The white balance cannot be changed.

1/320 sec., F4.5, ISO400, EV 0.0, WB: Multi Auto White Balance

Built-in ND filter that can be turned on/off

This model is equipped with a built-in ND filter that provides two steps of exposure. Simply change the settings to defocus the background even in bright outdoor shots at the maximum aperture setting and express subject movement with a slow shutter speed for a rich variety of photographic expressions.

1/4 sec., F5.6, ISO100, EV -0.3, WB: Multi Auto White Balance

Highlight-weighted option added to full-featured metering modes

In addition to [Multi-segment], [Center-weighted], and [Spot], [Highlight-weighted] is now available as a metering method. [Highlight-weighted] helps keep the exposure even, suppressing highlight blowouts in subjects illuminated by spotlights and high-contrast subjects.

Enjoy image finishing in-camera RAW processing without using a PC

RAW format data can be processed on the camera and saved as a JPEG file. Tune the photo exactly the way you want using just the camera, adjusting the recorded pixels, aspect ratio, white balance, Image Control and sensitivity.

P-TTL auto sync flash for versatile lighting

An external flash can be used to shoot at full synchronization speed.
PENTAX P-TTL auto flash (optional) is supported for high-precision auto sync using a pre-flash*. This makes it possible to use bounce flash and daylight sync for a greater range of photographic expression.
*Supported flash units: auto flash AF540FGZ II, AF360FGZ II, AF540FGZ, AF360FGZ, AF201FG, AF200FG.

Super wide 21 mm photography with a wide conversion lens

The new wide conversion lens GW-4 (optional) is compatible with the GR III. When attached, the angle of view is changed to an approximate 90-degree view (21 mm equivalent focal length) for super wide-angle shots, enhanced perspectives and a wide angle of view. Shake Reduction is also supported at a focal length of 21mm.
● The focal length is equivalent to the 35 mm format. Lens adapter GA-1 is required to attach wide conversion lens GW-4.
