Ricoh Imaging, the company behind Pentax, has recently introduced to the photo world their latest APS-C sensor shooter: the new Pentax K-3 DSLR camera.
Here’s an excerpt from the official press release:
Ricoh Imaging today announced the launch of the new PENTAX K-3, the industry’s most advanced DSLR camera for enthusiasts. Boasting an impressive continuous shooting speed of 8.3 frames per second, the new PENTAX K-3 raises the bar for image quality with its 24 effective mega-pixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor and world’s first selectable anti-aliasing filter.
