  • High-speed shooting operation to capture critical shutter chances

    The GR II’s high-speed AF system captures a subject in focus in a mere 0.2 seconds,* thanks to the optimization of its lens drive mechanism and AF algorithm and the high-speed readout of image data obtained by the image sensor. Start-up time is only one second, and the GR II’s AF Continuous Shooting function captures a series of photos at a maximum speed of approximately four images per second, allowing capture of fast-moving subjects, such as athletes and wildlife, all in incredibly sharp focus.   Thanks to its increased buffer memory capacity, it continuously captures as many as 10 images in a single sequence during RAW-format shooting. * Measured in compliance to CIPA standards.

  • Wireless Flash Function

    The GR II comes equipped with wireless flash functionality.  By selecting wireless flash the built-in flash can trigger external PENTAX flashes as a slave for creative portable lighting control in the studio or out on the streets. * Compatible accessory flash units are the PENTAX AF540FGZ II, AF360FGZ II, AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ.

  • A full range of shooting functions

    The GR II provides an in-camera RAW data development function. After shooting RAW-format images, the user can adjust a variety of parameters within the camera, and output them as JPEG-format image files. The GR II now offers a choice between Normal and Original modes for the peripheral brightness level setting. Also included in the GR II is the new CTE (Color Temperature Enhancement) mode for white-balance control, making it possible to emphasize a predominant color within the image, such as the red in sunset scenes.  The GR  II also features the PENTAX-original Shutter speed/Aperture Priority (TAv) exposure mode, featured only in PENTAX-brand digital SLR cameras. This innovative mode automatically sets the optimum ISO sensitivity based on the shutter speed and aperture selected by the photographer.
