Monochrome-specific image sensor

Monochrome-specific APS-C-format CMOS image sensor with approx. 25.73 effective megapixels

The PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome features an image sensor specifically designed to capture monochrome images only. By designing the camera solely for the purpose of monochrome photography, each pixel detects brightness data of the light coming through the lens. The obtained data is then directly converted to compose an image.

The photographer can create extra-fine monochromatic expression in an image high in resolution and rich in gradation.

Monochrome-specific Custom Image

Custom Image modes exclusively designed for monochrome photography

The PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome features three Custom Image modes exclusively designed for the monochrome-specific image sensor: Standard, Hard and Soft. Each mode provides minute adjustment of parameters such as tone, key, contrast, and sharpness. This allows the photographer to personalize images for the desired finishing touch.

Exterior design

Exterior design reflecting the monochrome photography concept

The concept of monochrome photography is evident throughout the PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome camera body, from the white backlight illumination on the LCD data panel positioned on its upper panel, to the Monochrome lettering printed on the upper-left shoulder of the back panel. The camera’s User Interface menu features a black-and-white color scheme as default, while the icons printed on buttons and switches across the camera’s exterior are finished in three shades of gray.

SR (Shake Reduction)

In-body shake reduction mechanism

The PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome incorporates an advanced SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, which lets the photographer use all types of lenses — from the latest to vintage — and to capture sharp, blur-free images while optimizing the distinctive visual expression of each lens.
