The world is full of wonders, like the beautiful, breathtaking scenes and exciting, delightful moments you come across. The PENTAX KP captures these once-in-a-lifetime moments, faithfully and beautifully.

Its compact body is packed with state-of-the-art technologies including a high-performance optical viewfinder. It is also extremely resistant to environmental factors: rain, snow and freezing temperatures. Most of all, it boasts overwhelming image power, supported by approximately 24.3 effective megapixels and a top sensitivity of ISO 819200.

Regardless of time or location, the PENTAX KP is a new-generation digital SLR camera that captures the beautiful, fascinating moments, anywhere in the world you might be. It delivers true beauty of the world in high-quality digital images.

24.32 Effective Megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor

The PENTAX KP features a new-generation 24.32 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C CMOS sensor for outstanding image quality. It delivers well-defined images with true-to-life reproduction of gradation and texture. This new sensor enables shooting in extremely low-light conditions, with super-high-sensitivity to ISO 819200, making the camera ideal for low-light photography.

Compact, dustproof, weather-resistant baody perfect for outdoor photography.

The PENTAX KP’s compact and slim design optimizes performance, operability and portability. It boasts a fully weather and cold proof design to resist water, fog, snow, sand and dust, for top performance in extreme field conditions.

A range of customization features, including an exchangeable grip

The PENTAX KP provides a grip replacement system for easy, quick change of the grip to accommodate the photographer’s shooting style or a mounted lens. It offers a variety of customization functions to simplify and enhance camera operation, including Smart Function for speedy selection and easy setting of desired camera functions using the Fx (Function) and setting dials; and control panel customization to change the panel’s layout to suit the photographer’s preference.

Pentax-Original SR II Five-Axis Shake-Reduction System
Thanks to the built-in SR II shake-reduction mechanism, the PENTAX KP effectively minimizes camera shake and delivers sharp, blur-free images, even in camera-shake-prone conditions. this five-axis mechanism also compensates for camera shake caused by horizontal and vertical shift (often generated in macro photography) and camera shake caused by roll. It assures a compensation effect of approximately five shutter steps.

Pixel Shift Resolution System
The Pixel Shift Resolution System captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, and then synthesizes them into a single composite image. This innovative system obtains all colour data in each pixel to deliver super-high-resolution images with far more truthful colours and much finer details than those produced by conventional APS-C-sized image sensors.

Anti-Aliasing Filter Simulator
By applying microscopic vibrations to the image sensor unit at the sub-pixel level during image exposure, the PENTAX KP’s AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator provides the same level of moiré reduction as an optical AA filter. This function works more effectively with a shutter speed of 1/1000 second or slower, and may not be compatible with some shooting modes, including the Pixel Shift Resolution System.

Electronically Controlled Shutter Unit
Combining a reliable mechanical shutter mechanism with an electronically controlled shutter mechanism, the Pentax KP’s shutter unit provides a super-high shutter speed of 1/24000 second with reduced noise and vibration at shutter release, making it ideal for low-noise, low-vibration shooting in Live-view and mirror-up applications.

Optical Viewfinder
Within its compact body, the PENTAX KP incorporates a glass prism finder featuring the same optics and coatings as those used in higher-class models. With a nearly 100-percent field of view and magnification of approximately 0.95 times, it provides a wide, bright image field for easy focusing and framing.

High-Speed 27-Point Autofocus System
The high-speed SAFOX 11 phase-matching AF sensor module delivers dependable, responsive autofocus operation. 25 of the focus sensors are cross-type sensors positioned in the middle to assure pinpoint focus on the subject at a minimum brightness level of -3 EV.

A completely new, much-improved algorithm assures better autofocusing accuracy and speed than models equipped with the conventional SAFOX 11 module. The camera also provides useful customization features to assist in autofocus operation, such as a choice of operation modes — focus-priority, release-priority or advance-speed-priority — and the Selected-area Expansion function to automatically refocus on a subject when it moves away from the initial point.

Full HD Movie Recording
The Pentax KP is able to capture flawless, high-resolution Full HD movie clips (1920x1080 pixels at 60i/30p frame rate) in the H-264 recording format. An external microphone terminal is available to allow users to manually set the audio recording level and monitor the sound pressure level.

The camera also features a 4K Interval Movie mode which connects a series of 4K-resolution still images (3840 x 2160 pixels) at a fixed interval to create a single movie file.

Vertical-Tilt LCD Monitor
The PENTAX KP’s 3.0-inch LCD monitor has approximately 921,000 dots, and provides a vertical tilt function to facilitate high- and low-angle shooting. Its air-gapless construction reduces the reflection and dispersion of light for improved visibility during outdoor shooting, and it comes equipped with Outdoor View Setting mode and a red-lighted monitor display function for dark locations.

Pentax Real-Time Scene Analysis System
Supported by the combination of the approximately 86,000-pixel RGB light-metering sensor and the high-performance PRIME IV imaging engine, the PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System accurately and efficiently analyses such factors as a brightness distribution in the image field and the subject’s primary colour and motion. By adopting a breakthrough artificial intelligence technology called deep learning to its image detection algorithm, this system assesses each individual scene more accurately while selecting the most appropriate exposure level and finishing touch for a given scene.

Other Features:

Switching lever to activate various settings during still-image and Live-view shooting and movie recording
New Motion Bracketing and Depth-of-field Bracketing functions to capture three images of same scene by automatically shifting aperture and/or shutter-speed settings in user-selected steps.
