What Ricoh Says
Developed as a camera that defines the PENTAX PRINCIPLES, the PENTAX K-3 Mark III features a host of functions and outstanding imaging performance to optimize the fun and excitement of the entire photo-shooting process — for photographers who are particular about the key values of SLR cameras, and who cherish photography as a lifetime passion. PENTAX developed a top-grade, easy-to-view optical viewfinder which fully immerses the photographer in shooting. It also renewed key devices, including the image sensor, imaging engine and accelerator unit. This was done to provide the highest possible image quality, and attain the super-high top sensitivity of ISO 1600000. The compact, sturdy camera body assures excellent operability and portability — benefits characteristic of the APS-C format. The premium kit includes the PENTAX K-3 Mark III Silver body and battery grip D-BG8. The battery grip is designed for exclusive use with the PENTAX K-3 Mark III, it features a dust proof, weather-resistant construction, and provides an extra set of control buttons (shutter release, Smart Function, AF/AE lock, exposure compensation, and green), a focus point selector lever, and a pair of electronic dials to facilitate vertical-position shooting. It is powered by the large-capacity D-LI90P Lithium-ion Battery, which is also used to power the camera body. This battery can be recharged using the camera’s USB terminal.
