Description

The Pentax KP Camera is a high end digital SLR camera featuring an APS-C sized image sensor and super high sensitivity night scene snapshot photography at ISO 819200 in a newly designed, compact body.

 

Approximately 24.32 effective megapixels and optical AA filterless design


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.

Tilting screen

Easily view the screen when shooting
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.

The world is full of wonders. The beautiful, breath taking scenes and exciting moments you experience.

The Pentax KP camera 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.

Regardless of when or where you're shooting, the Pentax KP is a new-generation digital SLR that will capture beautiful fascinating moments wherever in the world you may be. It delivers the true beauty of the world in high quality digital.

Easy transfer and browsing of images with a smartphone

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.**
