    • Description

      The Pentax KP is a high-performance, high-resolution DSLR with a compact, slim, weatherproof body. It features a new-generation CMOS image sensor and a high-performance imaging engine to deliver high-resolution, rich-gradation images from its 24.32 effective megapixels. It also incorporates a five-axis shake-reduction system, which provides a compensation effect of five shutter steps.

      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 annoying 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.

      Effective camera shake compensation
      The PENTAX KP comes equipped with the innovative sensor shift SR II (Shake Reduction II), which ensures optimum compensation effect for all lenses. In addition to common camera shake caused by pitch and yaw, this five-axis mechanism also compensates for camera shake caused by horizontal and vertical shift (often generated in macro photography). Also camera shake caused by roll, which is difficult to handle by in-lens shake reduction systems. Thanks to a wide compensation range of five shutter steps, it benefits a number of handheld applications, such as when using a telephoto lens or shooting in poorly lit locations, to capture sharp, blur-free images.

      New APS-C CMOS image sensor
      The PENTAX KP incorporates a new-generation, APS-C CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.32 effective megapixels to produce high resolution images. It has been engineered to remove the optical AA (anti-aliasing) filter to optimise the image sensor’s outstanding imaging power. The result is sharp, fine detailed images with an accurate sense of depth. By processing image data at a high read-out speed of 14bit, it produces beautiful, rich gradation images.

      Dustproof, weather-resistant construction
      To prevent the intrusion of water and dust into the interior, the PENTAX KP features 67 sealing parts, applied to the control buttons and dials, covers and exterior joints. By mounting an AW- or WR-series lens* and the optional, weather-resistant D-BG7 battery grip, they form a highly airtight digital imaging system that assures dependable performance even under unfavorable weather conditions.
