On October 27, 2020 Ricoh announced the development of the Pentax K-3 Mark III flagship APS-C-format DSLR camera. And here are some additional information of the Pentax K-3 Mark III:
- The “PENTAX K-3 III” will be officially announced and released around the spring of this year (although it’s not surprising as usual in the summer). By the way, by reading the specifications that have already been announced, trying Touch & Try, and receiving explanations, I have come to understand a little about its performance and ability. There may be changes in the retail version.
- One of the things that came off a little is that “Handheld Real Resolution” is not installed. The other is that the real resolution using a tripod does not have a single electronic shutter mode to use the electronic shutter. I would like to expect improvements in the firmware update after the release.
- On the other hand, I was impressed that “this looks good” by recognizing subjects such as people, birds, and cars using a new photometric sensor, an RGB Ir sensor with about 307,000 pixels, and a new image processing engine, PRIME V. Function to utilize. In addition, AF-C also has a function that makes use of deep learning to help track the subject. This function has already been done at Nikon, but it is the first time at PENTAX. However, if you don’t try it on an actual machine, its ability is unknown, but expectations are high.
- In the conventional K series, fine sharpness and extra sharpness could be selected, but it seems that the two were integrated into “Fine Sharpness II”, which is also highly anticipated.
- The impression of looking through the optical viewfinder with touch and try was that it was bright, clear, and had good visibility. In the first place, the bright optical viewfinder is a difficult thing to grasp in the MF, but the K-3 III viewfinder was strangely easy to focus in the MF, which was also a good impression.
