will the hourglass remain?

Will the K3 with all it's new speed be able to process in-camera corrections fast enough that we'll be able to say goodbye to the hourglass icon and the 3 second delay? I know those corrections can be turned off. But we have a few weeks left to wait and need to find something to talk about.

Hopefully not, though I fear it might unless the way the in-camera corrections are programmed is changed. I guess we'll have to wait until the reviews come in!

Well the PRIME III would be twice the speed and also other things in internal workings are faster, so I guess, we have to wait less long.

Increased Computing Power VS More Data to Process

Place your bets.

The images are much larger though, so it might even out.

I've heard that the hourglass on the K-3 will be replaced by a smiley.

The camera will also play elevator music once the hour-glass icon appears.
