Throughout the history of digital SLR cameras rise and dominance, their automated features have long been ignored by serious photographers, but with the Pentax K-1 Mark II, auto features might become relevant for the first time. That's because the camera uses an onboard deep learning algorithm to improve everything on the camera, from ISO to auto-exposure measurements.
The Pentax K-1 Mark II has a new accelerator unit that analyzes the image data it receives before sending it to the processor. This in turn makes the camera's ISO settings less noisy across all levels, improving photographers' ability to shoot in low light.
Further, the Pentax K-1 Mark II has a smart auto-exposure that uses a feature called 'Real-Time Scene-Analysis' to analyze brightness within the context of the image in the frame, providing more appropriate output as a result.
