Description

Proving the DSLR is still a highly capable tool, the Pentax K-3 Mark III marries contemporary imaging capabilities with the trusty and familiar design of an SLR. Taking the flagship spot in Pentax’s APS-C lineup, the K-3 Mark III is characterized by a new 25.7MP BSI CMOS sensor, a high-density 101-point AF system, a revised pentaprism optical viewfinder, and an advanced SR II Shake Reduction System. As a Pentax, too, the K-3 Mark III is also distinguished by its robust physical construction and extensive weather sealing for working in harsh weather conditions and climates. The K-3 Mark III’s updated sensor and processing capabilities offer a blend of high-resolution stills performance with apt speed to suit a variety of shooting scenarios. Up to 12 fps continuous shooting is possible along with UHD 4K video recording. For stills, a new SAFOX 13 AF system features 101 phase-detection points for quick and accurate focusing performance with apt subject tracking capabilities. Complementing the imaging, this camera relies on Pentax’s attention to details and how cameras are handled and used, and as such features a tough and robust physical construction with an ergonomic design and intuitive controls. The improved optical viewfinder provides realistic and detailed eye-level viewing while the rear 3.2″ 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD offers easy control over settings and image review. The K-3 Mark III is also benefitted by dual SD memory card slots, both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless interfaces, and a revised button design for more direct access to exposure and AF point control. Complete your durable, rugged All Weather camera setup with the P-TTL capable AF540FGZ II Flash from Pentax which features 28 seals, including the hot shoe, that enable a reliable weather-resistant digital imaging system. This unit has a guide number of 177′ at ISO 100 and 85mm along with a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 24-85mm, though the auto zoom function is compatible with smaller format Q-series mirrorless cameras, APS-C DSLRs, and medium format 645-series digital cameras. Also, with the use of a built-in diffusion panel the coverage can be extended to 20mm. Another benefit of this flash is tilt from -10 to 90° and rotation 135° to the left and 180° to the right for complete bounce functionality.

PROS
  • Excellent image quality: The K-3 has a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor that produces high-quality images with great color accuracy and sharpness.
  • Built-in image stabilization: The camera has in-body image stabilization, which means you can use any lens and still get the benefits of image stabilization.
  • Durable and weather-resistant body: The K-3 has a magnesium alloy body that is weather-sealed and dustproof, making it great for shooting in harsh conditions.
  • Fast autofocus system: The camera has an 27-point autofocus system that is very fast and accurate, making it great for capturing fast-moving subjects.
  • Dual SD card slots: The K-3 has two SD card slots, which makes it great for storing more photos or using one as a backup.
CONS
  • Limited video features: The K-3 can shoot full HD video, but it lacks some of the advanced video features found in newer cameras, such as 4K resolution and slow-motion capabilities.
  • Limited lens selection: While Pentax has a good selection of lenses, it is not as extensive as some of its competitors, which may limit the versatility of the camera for some photographers.
  • No built-in Wi-Fi: The camera does not have built-in Wi-Fi, which means you need to use an external accessory to transfer photos wirelessly.
  • No touchscreen: The camera does not have a touchscreen, which may be a downside for some photographers who are used to using touch controls on their smartphones or other devices.
  • Battery life: The camera has a relatively short battery life compared to some of its competitors, which may require you to carry extra batteries for long shoots.
