The world is full of wonders. The beautiful, breath taking scenes and exciting moments you experience. The PENTAX KP captures these once-in-a-lifetime moments in all their beauty.

The KP's compact body is packed with state-of-the-art technologies including a high-performance optical viewfinder with a user friendly interface. It is also extremely resistant to adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow and even freezing temperatures. Above all, it boasts overwhelming imaging power, supported by approximately 24.3 effective megapixels and a top sensitivity of ISO 819200.

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.

Exchangeable grips
The Pentax KP lets you replace its grip to accommodate a particular lens or suit your personal preferences in holding comfort or shooting style.

Shooting assist functions
The Pentax KP features the SR II (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.

The highest sensitivity in Pentax APS-C DSLR history
The Pentax KP couples a new generation CMOS image sensor with the PRIME IV imaging engine and an accelerator unit to greatly expand the upper limit of its sensitivity range without generating unwanted noise. With a top sensitivity of ISO 819200 (standard output sensitivity), it ensures super high sensitivity photography to deliver high resolution, rich gradation images. This allows for remarkable reproduction of the subject’s texture and a true-to-life sense of depth, even at higher sensitivities. It also produces high quality images across its entire sensitivity range.

High quality imaging supported by a 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.

Pixel Shift Resolution
Driven by the camera’s built in Shake-Reduction, this innovative system captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, which it then combines into a single composite image. Because it obtains full colour information in each pixel, it delivers super high resolution images which are far more accurate than those captured during the normal shooting process. It assures true-to-life colour reproduction without false colours, while effectively reducing unwanted noise. When the Motion Correction function is activated, it automatically detects the subject’s movement during exposure, and then works to minimise negative effects during the composition process.

27-point AF system with 25 cross-type sensors
Featuring 27 sensor points across the image field, the PENTAX KP’s sophisticated AF system not only captures the subject in sharp focus, but also automatically refocuses on a moving subject as it moves away from the initial point; it does this with the help of neighbouring points. Of the 27 points, 25 cross-type sensors are positioned in the middle to ensure high precision autofocus operation for all types of subjects.

Depth-of-field Bracketing and Motion Bracketing
These new functions allow you to capture three different images of the same scene or subject with a single shutter release, without affecting the overall exposure level. Since they don’t require time-consuming manual operation to shift exposure settings, you can concentrate on a shutter chance and image composition.

Electronically controlled shutter
The Pentax KP provides a choice of mechanical and electronic shutter modes. In the electronic shutter mode, the shutter unit produces very little noise and vibration during shutter-curtain operation, making it ideal for shooting in locations where silence is required. This mode also provides a top shutter speed of 1/24000 second, making it handy when you want to use an open aperture in bright, sunny locations. In Live View or mirror lock-up shooting, it provides even quieter, lower-vibration operation.

Highly durable body
The Pentax KP’s exterior casing is made of highly rigid, lightweight magnesium alloy with remarkable durability and outstanding electromagnetic shielding. Coupled with a high-rigidity, corrosion-resistant metallic chassis, it forms an extremely durable, dependable body structure.

Wi-Fi functions
The Pentax KP provides Wi-Fi functionality for operation using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. By installing the dedicated Image Sync application* on your mobile device, you can also browse images and remotely control camera operations from a distance.

Smart Function
Another innovative Pentax feature is the Smart Function. This allows you to select custom functions using the Function dial, then choose the desired setting using the setting dial. The two-dial operation make it a lot easier to control camera. In addition to four preset positions, the Function dial also provides three custom positions (C1 to C3), to which you can assign the desired functions for instant, single-action switching.

Control button customisation
The Pentax KP provides three Fx buttons to which you can assign frequently used functions. You can also customize the function of the AF/AE-L button, or assign a different set of functions to the front and rear e-dials and/or the green button for each exposure mode.

Tilting screen
The Pentax KP’s LCD screen features a versatile tilt mechanism, which you can position at any desired angle for effortless shooting in both high and low angle situations. In addition to the Pentax Air Gapless structure, used to minimise reflection, its tempered glass cover assures excellent visibility even in sunny outdoor locations, while effectively protecting it from scratches.
