For, last camera dSLR high-end, K3, Pentax improvement inside and outside it; he had previously presented at the K-5 II / IIs camera, integrating a new, sensor, new design, new autofocus system new system, measurement and better performance. I had the opportunity to spend time with an initial model that showed some problems in the (expected) firmware did something that prevented reports of image quality and performance, but overall it looks like a; promising start with some interesting changes. As for the fans, the brand that do not require the latest and the best, the K-5 II and IIs remain, being sold, but at a lower price, but Pentax has not said with, exactly what the price.
Like the K-5 IIs (and the Nikon D7100), the new sensor 24 megapixel Pentax K-3, completely abandons the optical low pass filter (OLPF, for short, English). But sometimes you want to blur the light of this, filter, especially if you know that the moire be a problem. So Pentax does something to address this concern: K-3 can be used; a mechanical system of image stabilization to compensate lightly; pixels in a circular motion, horizontal or vertical, but appears to be unavailable; in movie mode. To compensate for the increased vulnerability of the sensor; now there is a vibrant piece of glass coated thereon, to protect and, remove dust.
Unfortunately, the new autofocus system does not have the optimization Live View, but, Pentax says five sensors autofocus are for low light. In addition, Pentax implements a more granular RGB measurement and, using data from the light meter to supplement autofocus;. As the Canon EOS 70D camera, the K-3 implements zone focus, but not, shows the area, but only the selected focus point in; prefocus. Appears select the center of the area more often (which is good). Similarly, the camera keeps focusing the expanded area, automatic.
According to Pentax, the new display features an improved coating on the prism, offering better; refraction and reflection for sharper images, with a slight increase, but not really noticed the difference. In addition, this is the first camera; support USB 3.0.
The, performance improvements include continuous shooting at 8.3 frames per second, which puts the Pentax K-3 camera ahead of the competition. In addition, the camera offers a stabilization enhanced image and improved; shutter durability. Pentax brings his movie mode with options; 1080p / 30p and 720 / 60p, along with a microphone and headphone port. The camera, Pentax also features a; option of 4K (3,840×2,160). The filters now work in raw + JPEG modes and, film.
The; design is not completely renovated, but has many significant changes, compared with the K-5 series. Mode control can be locked, but not, I am sure your application and it seems exaggerated. Pentax has also adopted, the convention of a switch to change from video to photography, with a, button dedicated to Live View / Record.
The, new navigation buttons are cleverly designed to move; diagonal (as you would do when selecting focus points) and I, that I like the Pentax controls that Nikon or Canon.
In, overall, I liked the camera interface, which should be familiar to, Pentax users, but the buttons have spread a little. Normally in other cameras in the brief information screen, you must press of a; button to navigate the screen. In the, Pentax, you will see all the important settings on the control screen, but you’ll have to press different buttons to change each. For, change multiple settings in one screen, you have to go to a; screen with lots of information that is difficult to read quickly (because all; the icons are similar). In the K-50 camera that’s not so bad, because you do not have, as many features as the K-3.
The; Pentax K-3 has a flash that has a sync speed, rather slow and the camera does not have Wi-Fi functionality. Instead, the, company offers a Pentax Flucard card (optional), which allows wireless sharing via the web browser.
The, lack of some optimized functionality (Live View) autofocus is, really negative, but I find the Pentax lenses are quite slow, anyway. However, I believe that current Pentax camera photographers, who have waited long to upgrade, will find important reasons, do it with the Pentax K-3.
