The Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera Body with Flash and Battery Grip Kit
combines the versatile DSLR along with the AF540FGZ external flash and BG-5 Battery Grip. The camera features an enhanced set of imaging capabilities, benefitting its use in a wide variety of conditions, while the flash is ideal for working in difficult lighting or for creative applications. The included battery grip helps to extend the effective battery life of the camera and also provides a more ergonomic grip and added controls for working with the camera in the vertical orientation.
The K-3 features a 23.35MP APS-C CMOS sensor and PRIME III image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video with low-light sensitivity to ISO 51200. Full-resolution continuous shooting is supported up to 8.3 fps for 22 consecutive RAW frames, with a top shutter speed of 1/8000 sec., and the SAFOX11 autofocus system utilizes 27 focus points, with 25 cross-type points, to maintain sharp focus in a quick and accurate manner. Benefitting the image quality is a selectable anti-aliasing filter effect, which can be turned on or off to either garner the highest resolution and sharpness possible or provide enhanced protection against moiré. Additionally, in-camera Shake Reduction image stabilization renders any K-mount lens stabilized and helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake when working with greater shutter speeds or longer focal lengths. The cold, weather, and dust-sealed body design incorporates a 0.95x magnification pentaprism viewfinder, 3.2" 1,037k-dot LCD monitor, and dual SD memory card slots.
Included with the camera body is the AF540FGZ flash, which is a hot shoe-mounted flash supporting P-TTL exposure control and featuring a guide number of 178.2' at ISO 100. Wireless P-TTL flash can be utilized for off-camera triggering and high-speed flash sync is available to benefit working with fast-moving subjects.
