Ricoh announces details of upcoming Pentax K-3 Mark III
Ricoh has announced more details about its forthcoming APS-C flagship camera, which has now been given a name and release date. The Pentax K-3 Mark III will be available in February next year.
In a somewhat surprising move, Ricoh restated its commitment to DSLR technology earlier this year, and at the same time alluded to a new camera that was in the works. Well it turns out, this is it.
The K-3 Mark II features a 26-megapixel CMOS sensor, ISO range of 100 to 1,600,000, 5-axis IBIS, 12fps shooting, 4K 30p and dual card slots.
Ricoh states that the new camera will be faster and offer better image quality too, thanks to a completely redesigned image sensor, imaging engine, and accelerator.
No price has yet been announced, but the update video states that the K-3 is expected to go on sale for 'upwards of 200,000 yen', which, at potentally more than $2,600 AUD, would make it one of the more expensive APS-C cameras on the market.
