K-3 versus K-3 Premium Silver

Be careful as the silver body is much more prone to "abuse". My silver K-3 already has a few chips, beneath it is black plastic.....

K3, power button stuck

Hi all,

My K3 is now 2 years and the power dial started to move really difficult. It is hard to turn, and it can only be turned on/off by even pressure on both sides of the dial. Pushing the little knob does not make it move.

Any thoughts, or something for warranty?

Surprising because of the much larger file size that the K-1 produces. On the other hand, most will probably remove the SD card and pop it into the computer vs. cable transfer via USB?

Torrential rainfall tested the limits of the weather sealing on my K-3 II

On my K-3 this is at the top rear dial - you feel the air and hear the sound when zooming. When water is coming from the top it will surely get sucked in right there. Put a cover over it and should be fine - at least I know where the most apparent weakspot is.

@starbase218 and @TedW: Same thoughts there. I like the flash option now and then. Also I hardly use a tripod - so pixel shift is of no use to me. With the firmware getting better I personally thing the differences of AF with firmware 1.21 are marginal, if there are any really. No upgrade for me unless the offer gets better.

I'm in Germany and my Silver K-3 was one of the first but I have never had this issue. Warranty is running out, should I send it in to Pentax to get "the fix" applied (assuming there is a hardware fix)?

K3 Purchase Firmware Version Issue

The LCD is the only visible bug and it really has no influence to the pictures you take. I'm on 1.20 and the AF is a bit better and CIF works too. For me the upgrade is worth it as (my subjective feeling) it helps me make better pictures (the LCD is not relevant to making good pictures). Just my 2cts :)

Neues Palais, Potsdam. K-3 with 1.20 and 18-135. Just simple JPG and "Green Mode".

Despite the light from the windows you can still see the wall and ceiling between the windows.

1.20 will only support the 5 gears of the 1970 180HP 911S. But for later releases Pentax will look at adding support for other models.

Really cool is, even when there are no beans in the lens - an automatic sound emulator makes you think you're grinding away! Sound emulation is the key new thing in 1.20 (I am beta tester).

Perhaps they will just provide firmware updates and add features the "soft" way. Personally I'm not sure what a K-3 "II" would need to have to be "significantly" better than the current K-3.

Take the same picture with Green-Mode and compare. I had once a strange situation, until I noticed that the WB settings had changed, using a not normal setting. After setting it back to "Auto" all pictures were perfect again.

Latest firmware (1.11)? As far as I can remember they made a few fixes to WB detection. Does seem to be WB related, but if using auto it should detect correct WB.

I think you misinterpreted. $50 for a Flucard with 32GB is OK. Paying significantly more for the original Pentax card with added remote control function is imho not.

But I'm not sure its worth it to shell out so much more money for a Flucard with remote capabilities. Anyway, thanks all for the infos!

Do you have a link where I can read about the remote control function? Looking at a Flucard with 32GB that only cost $50, maybe its worth to not worry about that feature as WiFi is the key reason for me to get such a card.
