Pixel Shift Resolution II
Pentax Pixel Shift Resolution has been very well accepted with the PENTAX K-3 II, K-70, and KP. We have adopted an upgraded version of the Pixel Shift Resolution to PENTAX K-1 Mark II. The system is apart from the conventional Bayer system, which only captures single unit of color data in each pixel. Pixel Shift Resolution captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel, using the SRII mechanism. With this, each pixel captures all colors, resulting in super-high-resolution images, true to life colors with much finer details, while significantly lowering the level of high-sensitivity noise.
Motion Correction is also featured in K-1 Mark II. Therefore, when the PRIME IV processor detects moving objects, that section of the image will not be composed and will only use one of the four taken images for that portion. The Pixel Shift Resolution of the PENTAX K-1 Mark II, has been upgraded to Pixel Shift Resolution II as we have added a new Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution.

High ISO Sensitivity
ISO 819,200 (Still)
ISO 25,600 (Video)
As the combination of PRIME IV and the RICOH developed Accelerator Unit drastically reduces noise, allowing for high sensitivity up to ISO 819,200.
By exceeding the upper limit of sensitivity, the range of practical sensitivity will be widened with beautiful images with the wider selection of shutter speed and aperture combination. This can be easily done using the TAv mode. The ISO for video has also been increased to ISO 25,600.
