According to Japanese photography journal dc.watch.impress.co.jp, the
new Pentax Shake Reduction system, which will be employed in the new
K100D and K110D cameras, will use magnets to drive the movement of the
CCD, instead of a mechanical system as used by Konica Minolta.
By using magnets no guide rails are needed in the design, which should
lead to quicker response, and therefore better compensation of movement.
Screen shots of Pentax's new Photo Laboratory 3, which incorporates RAW
processing and organisation system from the popular Silkypix software,
are also included in the article.
Users of Pentax manual lenses will also be pleased to see the menu
system for inputting manual lens data in operation.
