K-3 pictures: front, side and back (aka it definitely is a headphone jack)

Three pictures of K-3 posted by Digital Camera Info:

Information about prices and images of the front, side and back of the Pentax K-3 - Digital Camera Info



1/ It's a headphone jack behind the bump
2/ There is "Ricoh" written on the back, under the LCD screen.

They say US prices will be around $1,300 body only and $1,650 together with DA 18-135.

These pictures are from corporate marketing material; I very much doubt the production model would differ on such a sensitive matter.

A lever to switch between stills and video? What a waste... Seems there´s a red "rec" button that doubles as Liveview button also. A lot of dedicated buttons for video. And the AF / MF lever looses one position so that choices and the focus point will be done through the "Focus Mode" button? I hope you can do them without having the main LCD on...
The *istD shows which focus point you´ve selected in the viewfinder... The K-5 doesn´t.

The [1][2] at the lower, right corner of the back view of the camera.. does that indicate dual slots?

its to swap between video live view and stills live view. My D800 does it the same way, but does not have a "video" mode on the "dial" so I'm assuming it's a quick way to get into it.

disappointed the hump is just a headphone jack.


p.s. dual card slots

Dual slots

Different diopter adjustment
Contoured 4 way buttons
Usb 3.0

A little something for everyone.

I'm still stupefied why they would spend resources 'updating' the K-30 to the K-50 and then turn right around and name their flagship the K-3

Why not keep the K-30 as the K-30 so the numbering system matches the new flagship?

Now what do they do? They can't go back to K-30 if they ever develop something more mid tier... unless they call it a K-30 mk ii or something along the lines of K-33
