Compact, slim design
Pentax has devoted a lot of time to reduce the size and weight of their camera bodies. This is based on the belief that portability is an important factor in the camera’s overall performance. The new PENTAX KP features an array of advanced functions in a compact, slim body to ensure great photographic results whether shooting outdoors or in.
Super high sensitivity, high resolution imaging
The Pentax KP couples a new generation CMOS image sensor with the PRIME IV imaging engine and an accelerator unit. Together these expand the upper limit of the sensitivity range without generating unwanted noise. With a top sensitivity of ISO 819200, it assures super high sensitivity photography to deliver high resolution, rich gradation images with faithful reproduction of the subject’s texture and a sense of depth, even at higher ISO settings. It also produces high quality images across the entire sensitivity range.
Shooting assist functions
SR II and interchangeable grips - The Pentax KP features the Shake Reduction II where the five-axis mechanism allows effective compensation for camera shake caused by pitch and yaw, horizontal and vertical shift, and roll by as much as five shutter steps.
