Five axis IBIS
This is one thing that I've always wondered about the k3, how many axis does it have?

INTERESTINGLY, I wonder if you could do sensor tilts for interesting perspective changes like the existing sensor shift feature in the k3, k50, etc.

3: shift up/down, shift left/right and rotate in the sensor plain.

No tilt

While we are on the subject of 5-axis IBIS, I'm quite interested to see if the 5 axis stabilization is incorporated into the astrotracer module to allow for less trailing around the edges of wide angle shots, since it can presumably track the sidereal sphere more accurately....

I was thinking the same at exactly the moment you posted. Of course part of the reason there is more trailing around the edges is lens distortion, that cannot be compensated for by SR. But some improvement may be possible indeed...

Drool... Seems appropriately positioned to allow for a slight light to make sure the lens is still focused on infinity while doing astrophotography? Pentax is not making it easy to stick to my promise not to fall into the FF trap... Tx for the sneak Kenspo!!

isn't that a peculiar light - good for lens changes in the dark

Actually it's vertical and horizontal tilt, and rotate. Those are not the sensor's movement - which is moving in a fixed plane - but the motions the system is able to compensate for.

Compensation for roll, pitch and yaw.

Did you say changing lenses in the dark? Reminds me of a song...


"I get up in the evening
Gonna shoot my camera late tonight
Frustrated by morning
Wasn't able to change my lens, no light.

Iím just needing some help now.
Donít wanna drop my lenses on the floor.
Hey there Pentax, can you help me a little more?

Now go shoot your photos
Because this new cameraís got a spark.
The K-1 from Pentax
Will let you change lenses in the dark."

Those are the words I hear Americans use, at least in my part of the country. I don't know what words the east coast, west coast, south use, let alone what the actual Brits say.
