A workaround might also be avoiding these shutter speeds. One could argue that the K-3iii does not directly support electronic shutter, and it's not certain they'll add that feature in a future firmware (they did that for the K-1); but there are alternatives.

Then best to leave the shot in as is....so the regular user will also know what shutter speeds to avoid. Take it out of the studio comparison and the masses may not notice so not pick up on the "workaround" you suggest

I think you defend something impossible to defend, sorry.

Indeed. There's just no way to defend it, particularly when other cameras had a much more favorable treatment.

What the masses will notice is that at base ISO output from K3III is worse than any other camera, period. Which is wrong and misleading.

People won't even read the article explaining how this is shutter shock; they'd just use the Studio Scene Comparison tool, select some other cameras and the K-3iii, and draw the incorrect conclusion.

Is the purpose here drawing an incorrect conclusion? I don't think anyone here claims it is.

And it's never been the purpose of comparison tool to warn users about shutter shock, moreover when in practice there is no warning message displayed when you use the tool.

Spot on. Obviously, the Studio Scene Comparison tools is supposed to show the camera's maximum performance, excluding factors such as autofocus accuracy, lens, shutter shock (yes, they try to minimize that although I'm not sure they succeeded).

Obviously, the K-3iii's ISO 100-400 images would not have shutter shock issues in slightly different conditions. So these samples are not actually representative for the K-3iii's maximum image quality at ISO 100-400.

Obviously, something that doesn't even mention the shutter shock isn't a tool to advise people to avoid shutter shock issues. A dedicated article, or a section in the review are fine; the sample images which will be seen and interpreted in a very different context aren't.

DPReview avoided including images affected by shutter shock for any other camera. Why is the K-3iii excluded?
