RICOH IMAGING gave me the Assignment to photograph with the worlds first APS-C Monochrome Sensor in a DSLR Body. The new K-3 III Monochrome Camera was officially announced on April 13 in 2023 and I had the great privilege to work with the Camera before the official launch to collect Imagery for marketing purposes. I had three weeks to present 10-15 Images that showcase the strength and the beauty of Monochrome Photography. The Images had to be liable for commercial use so I had to adjust my Street Photography approach and photograph scenes without identifiable People in the frame. Here are my personal favourite Images from the short time I had with the K-3 III Monochrome:
Hamburg Dom Fun Fair - Pentax K-3 III Monochrone with DA 16-50mm 2.8
You can see more Images and hear about my experience with the camera in this YouTube Video:
Overall I had a great Experience using the PENTAX K-3 III Monochrome and thank Ricoh Imaging for trusting me with my Photography.
