Noise, noise, noise

Magic Marker, B&H Photo
13 September 2015
  • Excerpt: I have always loved Pentax (film cameras) and decided to try the K-# DSLR. While the camera was smaller than I imagined, the images were sharp, but the noise, no matter what I tried was not good.

OK but with reservations

Magic Marker, B&H Photo
10 August 2015
  • Excerpt: I've always loved Pentax but was disappointed here with the K-3. I process in Photoshop CC 2015 and all the images came out noisy. I contacted Pentax/Ricoh and was directed to use the Digital Camera's software that came with the camera.

AN EXCELLENT CAMERA, BUT WITH SOME SERIOUS TRADE OFFS IN PERFORMANCE

G.M., Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: ***Please note, I turn off JPEG Noise Reduction on my cameras. Noise reduction (NR) can smear images as opposed to helping them when the option to fix noise in post production tools exist that do a better job.

  • Summary: I'm a big Pentax fan, own a complete line of the KA-mount lenses, and the K5, (3) K-01's, the K2-s (no anti-aliasing filter) and the K3 premium silver edition w/grip (& leather strap). I've owned it since December, 2013.

  • Summary: The MIRROR FLAP issue is real. Its an excellent camera but dont buy it until Ricoh fix this issue and recall all affected cameras. The camera locked up into flapping mirror the very first time I used it straight out of the box. It did it again a few days latter when I tested it again.

  • Summary: Bought in March 2015. Really like the camera. Takes excellent pictures. Very well made. Very comfortable to handle. Easy to use. But I am now experiencing the shutter problems others have had.
