The first major upgrade of a Pentax DSLR under the Ricoh brand brings us the innovative K-3. This 24 megapixels APS-C DSLR is based on a high-speed CMOS sensor capable of 8.3 FPS continuous shooting at full-resolution. It can also capture full 1080p HD video in realtime or a 4K Ultra-HD time-lapse.
The K-3 inherits the Pentax Shake-Reduction mechanism which brings unique Automatic Horizon Correction and Composition Adjustment, plus ads yet another completely new feature: an Anti-Alias Filter Simulator. This, for the first time, gives photographers the choice between maximum sharpness and potential moire artifacts.
Neocamera just published their most extensive review to date for the Ricoh Pentax K-3. As always, we cover features, usability, ergonomics and performance in great depth. A special page compares in great details the K-3 vs last year’s the K-5 IIs, for those considering to upgrade. In addition to the usual full-resolution gallery an 100% crops, this review includes a comparison of APS-C and Full-Frame performance. Be sure not to skip anything! Read it all here.
