PENTAX K-3 Mark III is probably the last flagship APS-C DSLR Camera we can expect from a big camera manufacturer. It features a new 25.7MP BSI CMOS sensor that supports an ISO range of 100 to 1600000. Pentax has equipped this camera with 5-axis sensor-shift shake reduction image stabilization offering up to 5.5 stops.

This DSLR camera comes with Dual SD Card Slots. It can take SD, SDHC and SDXC Memory Cards with UHS-1/UHS-II speeds. However, only SD1 slot supports UHS-II speed. You can save to both cards or use one card to save raw images and the other for storing jpegs.

PENTAX K-3 Mark III features a Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder offering approx 100% field of view and approx. 1.05X magnification. It can shoot up to 12 images per second in AF-S mode and up to 11 images in AF-C mode. Pentax has equipped this model with SAFOX 13 AF system with 101 focus points. The older PENTAX K-3 II only had 27 focus points – so a big jump in this area.
