Pentax announces its latest DSLR camera for the serious photography junkies. The Pentax K-3 DSLR sports a 24-megapixel imagine sensor and a new WiFi-equipped SDHC card called FLU, which gives the photogs remote control of the camera using any device with a web browser.

Owners of the K-3 would also have more control over the shots with a new anti-aliasing filter that sets the image’s smoothness or rawness without having to switch cameras or lenses. The DSLR also comes with an updated 27-point autofocus system, 8.3fps burst shooting mode, full HD video recording capability, headphone and microphone terminals, and the ability to capture 4K-quality videos at fixed intervals.

“Ricoh Imaging (the company behind Pentax) has made an investment to ensure that our product lineup features the most complete and capable APS-C offering in our history,” said Jim Malcolm, Ricoh Imaging’s executive vice president, in a press statement. “This goal was realized with the introduction of the K-3. Its unmatched feature set and revolutionary technology set a benchmark of excellence that raises the bar for the entire APS-C (Advanced Photo System type-C image sensor format) category.”

This new camera is cased in a weather-resistant, moisture-tight body with no protruding devices that would prevent the door from closing shut.

The Pentax K-3 will have its retail run this November for only $1,300 for the body. Add $400 and you also get an 18-135mm/ f3.5-5.6 lens, while another $100 would give you a 16GB FLU card.
