My K-3 wants an external flash

I have the YN560IV and it works great plus for an extra $20 you can get the 603 triggers that also work as a remote for flash and camera. Just a tight fit on the K3-II. If you have followed any of Brooke's post you will see how well they work . Brooke's talent might have something to do with the results !

K3ii at the current price is a steal. I just upgraded from a K30 and couldn't be happier.

Just upgraded to this from K30 and could not be happier. Easy transition similar feel in the hand. Only thing that kept me from the K70 was the focus system. You can't go wrong with either upgrade.

I purchased a 50 plastic fantastic off the forum. I am impressed every time I mount it on my camera. In fact I show my Canikon friends the results and boast about the price of the lens and the results. Best 50mm deal !

I'll be at the Falls next week and I plan on taking the K3ii with my 18-135. But your point about the 50mm is right on for us "old film guys". When I review my shots using the zoom lens they tend to fall in that 50mm range. Old habits die hard.

Front passenger seat in a padded holster with no strap , the top unzipped , button on , cap off . Pull it out and fire away . If you stop short the holster will protect it . I travel around the Airfield that way all the time . Our speed is limited to 20 mph though.

I jumped ! K3ii with accessories . One question , the dust removal setting doesn't exhibit the shaking like my K30. I know it is a different system but is that normal ? I do notice some more noise on the few pictures I have taken but I will give it a workout this weekend . Thanks to all for the suggestions !

You're missing the add on grip for the LX. Then it would be even more of a striking similarity!

Great comparison! The only film camera I saved for nostalgic reasons was the ME Super with the winder grip . Actually sold a complete LX with winder , grip and screen but kept the ME Super. Brings back memories.

How are you liking the KP?

If you get a chance to come East ,Cape Cod offers great whale watching trips for reasonable prices. Nova Scotia was a spectacular trip for a photo buff. Beautiful scenery and very nice local people.

I have considered the reports of high iso performance discussed on the forum. The K30 performs well. Pop up flash is not an issue,I prefer a manual flash when needed.

It is kind of difficult to find a " utility player" in the camera world. I'm not talking about a camera that does all but one that can do most well. I'm not a Pro and I don't expect pro level results. Just a good all around player. Pardon the baseball references but the season has started!

Juneau is on the itinerary! Had a great experience with humpbacks in Nova Scotia this summer. Will definitely try it out. Thanks for the advice.

What is your favorite niche of photography? What do you think the K3ii excels at ?

Budget will support K3ii or KP. If the K70 had a better focus system I would grab it. Leaning toward K3ii due to excellent price. 899 with grip and mini flash at Adorama. They will even entertain buying my K30 and a few of my lenses. I just sold a A24f2.8 and might sell my A135f2.8 and my A35-105f3.5. So I decided to stay with crop sensor and might pick up a limited prime.

K3ii is approaching end of cycle but many of our competitors models have been around for a while.

One just out of college and one 4 years into a 6 year doctoral program. I feel your pain. But I squirreled away for an upgrade and got approval from the boss!

Thanks. Auto focus is my concern with an upgrade. Technology has improved from the K30. I'm not complaining because good techniques have provide me with some great images. Us old school film guys remember the non auto focus Days! But the eyesight isn't what it used to be🤓

Great summary. I'm just a little hesitant to purchase a new model early . The KP has the latest and greatest features but it hasn't got a proven track record yet.

You are correct the lines and levels are blurred. Focus performance is my only concern shooting aircraft. I have access to all areas on the airport for a great opportunity to photograph aircraft. Thanks for the info.

---------- Post added 03-31-17 at 09:59 PM ----------



I think for now that I will stay with the crop sensor. I like the compact size to carry around at work in a small bag or holster.

My K30 has been a great friend! I would like an upgrade in auto focus and metering. It tends to underexposed in some situations. I'm not unhappy with the camera but need to upgrade. I have been shooting aerial photos for my company lately and I concerned about reliability. Basically I am the "unofficial " photographer for my airport.
