Pentax K-5 IIs: 55 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

8. video recording

9. Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
