Compact, slim design

PENTAX has devoted much of its effort to reduce the size and weight of camera bodies, based on the belief that portability is an important factor in the camera’s overall performance. The new PENTAX KP packages an array of advanced functions in its compact, slim body to assure simple, carefree shooting not only during daily outings, but also on trips and outdoor activities.

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 to 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 sensitivities. It also produces high-quality images across the entire sensitivity range, from the lowest to the highest.

Shooting assist functions
(SR II and exchangeable grips)

The PENTAX KP features the SR II (Shake Reduction II),* whose five-axis mechanism assures effective compensation for camera shake caused by pitch and yaw, horizontal and vertical shift, and roll, by as much as five shutter steps.** It also lets you exchange the grip to accommodate a particular lens or suit your preference of holding comfort or shooting style.


* The SR II can be activated only in viewfinder shooting.
** Measured in conformity to CIPA standards, using the smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mmF3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF]DC WR lens at a focal length of 135mm.
