Denver, Colorado July 23, 2014 In keeping with its tradition of excellence and the new standard of performance, RICOH IMAGING AMERICAS CORPORATION is proud to announce the launch of the PENTAX K-3 Prestige Edition.

The K-3 Prestige is a special-edition model of the original PENTAX K-3, the flagship of the K-mount digital SLR camera series. It comes in a stylish, high grade, gunmetal gray shade and commemorates the many awards bestowed upon the K-3 by revered photography publications and organizations such as; DPreview, PC Magazine, Imaging Resource, as well as the Technical Image Press Associations (TIPA) award for “Best Digital SLR Expert” in 2014. This illustrious version of the award winning K-3 will be available in a limited quantity making this special edition highly sought after.

The PENTAX K-3 Prestige Gunmetal Edition* will be made available in a limited quantity with only 2,000 units being offered worldwide. This limited-edition model features a sleek, gunmetal gray body with a BG-5 battery grip designed exclusively for the K-3. This makes it a perfect match for the HD PENTAX DA Limited lens series, which is designed for unrivaled image rendering. This special package also includes an exclusive, black leather strap, a gunmetal D-BG5 battery grip, and two dedicated batteries for use in both the camera body and the battery grip.

As the Premiere DSLR in Ricoh Imaging’s robust and full-featured APS-C lineup, the PENTAX K-3 brings unparalleled technology and advanced specifications presenting photographers with a solution that raises the bar while removing limitations. The K-3 provides an array of outstanding features, including high-resolution image reproduction with approximately 24 effective megapixels, a 27-point AF system, high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 8.3 images per second, high-precision exposure control with a newly designed 86,000 pixel RGB light-metering sensor, a new, large, high-resolution LCD monitor, and an optical viewfinder with the largest, brightness subject image in its class. The AA simulator, a highly innovative function developed specifically for the K-3, allows the user to effectively minimize moiré without actually installing an optical AA filter in the camera. This provides a choice of filtered or filter-free shooting for a given scene or subject. The K-3 also offers greatly-enhanced movie recording features and smartphone-accessible functions. The time-proven dustproof, weather-resistant body construction ensures dependable, flawless performance in the field.
