Super 16 is an image format used in film productions.

Super-16 is located on the picture field of 12.35×7.42mm (width time height). The image side ratio is 5 to 3 or 1:1.66. In contrast to the ordinary picture on 16 mm film, Super 16 offers more than 20 percent more usable negative image area, and thus a better resolution.

Kranosgorsk works in all conditions, in cold, heat, rain and dust. This good camera for travel, expeditions, and in a war zone.
The supplied zoom lens is of extremely high quality and is sufficient for almost any recording situation. Any Pentax screw mount lens will work on the K-3, so you can use any 35mm SLR lens on your K-3.

The K-3 has been adopted by many film schools, including the University of Southern California's School of Cinema and Television. It has a semi-automatic diaphragm setting.

Its low price, rugged construction and sophisticated optics have made it very popular with both beginning filmmakers and professionals. Among the K-3's credits are music videos for the Spin Doctors and Suicidal Tendencies.

Director Spike Lee shot some of the footage in his film Get On The Bus using a K3. There is a photo of Spike holding a K-3 on the cover of the soundtrack CD.

17-69mm f1.9 zoom precision Zenit Lens
Electronic exposure meter
