New Pentax K3

Hello all,

I just bought a K3 off ebay still waiting on it to be delivered, I am upgrading from my Kx and will be shooting Vivid. My question is can you transfer images from either card via the Flu card or does it only transfer the pics saved to the flu card. I just find the card really expensive and as i already have a 64gb card.

I considered the K3ii but i cant afford it. Paid just under 900 for the K3

You can only transfer files on the flucard itself. Personally I wouldn't use it for file transfers due to the slow speed of the Wi-Fi and slower speed of the flucard compared to UHS-I cards.

Welcome to Pentax Forums. You'll find the answers to your questions in the K-3 camera manual, but seeing you don't have yours yet, you should be able to download a copy from the Pentax-Ricoh website.

The wifi transfer process deals with the FLUcard images. The Pentax FLUcard allows remote wireless control. The standard FLUcard is just for image transfer. It's really only practical for JPEG transfer, as the RAW images are much larger and the transfer rate is fairly slow.
