What would you advise for a good matt box for the K-3? Is it even possible?

Thanks,
Dory Breaux

Also, what would be a good adapter so I could use Pentax lenses with the bayonet mount? I know there made but cant find them.

Adapter for use of Pentax M42 screw mount with Kransogrosk with bayonet mount not possible.
You will need repalce of front part of body on version with M42 screw mount only.

About mat box.
Krasnogors had not original mat box.
You can install of any mat box from other camera.
James Westbrook created a very good mat box for K-3 and showed pictures on forum.
You can use similar way.

There was a company in NYC that sold matte boxes called MKA (or something like that) but I guess they went out for business since this was in the mid-90's. I don't think they were original ones but adapted to the K3. Now the question is: is that a video-assist in the pictures??? If so, how is it possible on a K3???

The VA is easy, if you just want it for framing.

Take a lipstick or helmet cam, play around with placement a little, then fastin it with gaffers tape.
