Built upon the legacy of the award-winning GR series, the GR II combines exceptional image quality and outstanding portability. It boasts a high-performance wide-angle lens and 16.2 megapixel APS-C size image sensor that delivers superb image quality with edge-to-edge sharpness. Equipped with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC functions for wireless connection with smartphones and tablets, while offering complete remote shooting functionality.
The GR II is perfect for street and travel photographers looking for on-the-go resolution delivered by a large image sensor, equal in size to those in PENTAX DSLR cameras. The GR ENGINE V offers a top sensitivity of ISO 25600, improved AWB control, and high-sensitivity noise compensation. The high-speed auto focusing system is capable of capturing subjects in focus in a mere 0.2 seconds. Check out all 17 effect modes to apply a variety of image processing within the camera to create the desired visual expression.
The GR II features a compact, high-performance GR lens with a focal length of 28mm (in the 35mm format). This lens incorporates two high-precision aspherical optical elements and a high-refraction, lower-dispersion glass element to minimize distortions and chromatic aberration, while reproducing sharp, high-contrast images even at edges of the image field.
Featuring a large, APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 16.2 effective megapixels, the GR II provides a top sensitivity of ISO 25600. By reprogramming the AWB algorithm, it assures more precise white-balance control under artificial lighting such as fluorescent lights, while reducing the color bleeding of green hues in outdoor shooting.
The GR II comes equipped with Wi-Fi functions for wireless connection with mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It is also compatible with NFC (Near Field Communication) functions for easy pairing with mobile devices. The GR II provides two types of applications: GR Remote for easy setting of various commands using a mobile device’s screen, just like on the camera’s LCD panel; and Image Sync for easy transfer and browsing of recorded images using a mobile device.
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 High-speed shooting operation, allowing capture of fast-moving subjects, such as athletes and wildlife, all in incredibly sharp focus.
The GR II provides a total of 17 effect modes, which allow the user to apply a variety of image processing within the camera to create the desired visual expression. Including Clarity and Brilliance, six modes have been newly added to the selection, allowing the user to adjust some parameters to the desired level. The user can set the desired mode simply by pushing the Effect button on the camera’s side panel.
The GR II captures beautiful Full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 ratio, 30 frame rate) in the H-264 recording format. By teaming this function with the GR lens and the large image sensor, the GR II assures high-quality movies.
