  By Ryley Smith

 

On May 20th, 2021, Ricoh announced that the Pentax K-3 Mark III was named “BEST APS-C CAMERA EXPERT” by the prestigious Technical Image Press Association! Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) consists of 25 photo and imaging magazines from around the world, including a cooperative agreement with the Camera Journal Press Club of Japan. In other words, this is a great achievement for the Pentax K-3 Mark III!

Fans of DSLR-type viewfinder camera systems will find lots to like in the 26MP Pentax K-3 Mark III’s high brightness pentaprism that delivers a near 100% field of view. This newly engineered camera can capture all the action with 12 fps speed and its enhanced high-density (101) array of focusing points. A built-in 5EV shake-reduction mechanism allows for expanded ISO, aperture and shutter speed options even in low light, while the lightweight magnesium alloy body delivers both carry and protection advantages. 4K UHD video and Bluetooth and wireless LAN connectivity add to the camera’s appeal. Hands-on, its leaf switch shutter mechanism makes for smooth action that, when combined with an upgraded mirror and shutter drives, provides a highly pleasurable and effective shooting experience.”  – Notes about the Pentax K-3 Mark III from TIPA members.

Congratulations Ricoh and the Pentax K-3 Mark III on your award!
