AF in video mode is my wild guess here
That would be interesting but I'm afraid that the screw-driven lenses will make too much noise.

Off camera mics for those situations.

Maybe focus peaking (if it actually is in it) in video mode?

I can't fathom how excited I am if this is true.
14bit uncompressed output from the HDMI.

Pinch me, I might be dreaming.

And you were about to . . . whatever it was . . . . a few weeks ago.

not a big problem if you have external mic further away... in k-5 the audio is mono, if it is still mono in k-3 then it is better to use an external mic... but i can't imagine using autofocus for video... i always use manual focus, looks better... wouldn't AF look jumpy?

If Pentax/Ricoh only knew *how close* I was.
Seriously.
I will be giving Pentax/Ricoh the money for three K3 cameras and grips, so they are *definitely* keeping me around.

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy over this new tool.

I guess it would not be exactly RAW video like the CineDNG format, but 14 bits H264, wich is not bad at all.

Support of sample bit depth precision ranging from 8 to 14 bits per sample (depending on the selected profile).

They are tools to me, as I shoot with two bodies.

The third will be my husbands/back-up.



The K3 is everything I have been waiting for as an upgrade to the K5.

ah that makes sense i bought my k-5 just recently... i thought the k-5II/s wasn't that big of an improvement over k-5... so i bought a k-5. now that they finally lauch a new model... and it's everything i've been reading about it... I'll be happy to pay whatever it costs! i saw a price here, $1300, another site said $1600... i'll be happy to pay either, it's everything i've dreamed of as well. i'm only beginning my dslr journey, this k-5 is my first dslr, and k-3 will be my second... i did a lot of research... ended up with pentax. saw it as the best choice. now i am so so happy... they launch k-3... it is so much better than k-5... i think it's a camera i could be happy with for a very long time... even if i make this into a profession (when I'm good enough) ^^

Moving the mic off-camera kind of runs counter to the built in headphone jack for monitoring. And for the video I shoot, AF and MF have their own places. With the GH2 for interviews, face detect AF is very useful.

LOL. You are lucky then, that you came into "Pentax" recently.
You have not had to have your stomach churn with each "Color Engineered" item that Ricoh has been putting out. Or "Toy" aimed at some market segment.

The K5 was/is a brilliant camera, that started with the K7.
The K3 is finally what folks like me have been asking for.

The wonderful Pentax engineers in Japan have survived into the Ricoh era, and THAT is cause for celebration.

Now, my Pentax purchases will continue...K3, DA560 and whatever comes down the pike. As a *serious* Pentaxian, Ricoh was so very close to losing me.

If this thing really shoots RAW video, that will be nothing short of amazing. And revolutionary. 14-bit RAW plus no Aa filter should bee roughly on part with output from the blackmagic cinema camera.

There's one more interesting video feature that hasn't leaked yet.

dual writing to both SD slots simultaiously either in dual codecs ?? -- or --- record h264 codec and output thru the other slot 4G or wifi for recording and uploads for press photogs in the field ???



also the sensor @ 6016x4000 could do 4k UHD ??? ... may need to check the data rates to see of that is possible ..

hhhhhmmm what other odd ball thories we could throw out there
