ISO 819200

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 sensitivityphotography 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.

 

Approximately 24.32 effective megapixels and optical AA filterless design

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 eff ective megapixels to produce high resolution images. It has been engineered to remove the optical AA (anti-aliasing) fi lter to optimise the image sensor’s outstanding imaging power. The result is sharp, fi ne 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

State-of-the-art technology for finer detail and capture of full colour information

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 eff ects during the composition process.

* When using this system, the user is advised to stabilise the camera fi rmly on a tripod, and use either the self-timer setting of the drive mode or a mirror lock-up function.

** This system may not produce the desired effect when the subject is in motion, or the camera is shaken during exposure.

*** The Motion Correction function may not correct certain types of subject movement. It does not guarantee that the movement will be properly corrected for all subjects. The user may turn this function off as necessary.








































Electronically controlled shutter unit with quiet, high speed operation and top speed of 1/24000 second

Ideal for shooting in quiet locations, and for creating beautiful bokeh effects in sunlit scenes

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.

* The electronic shutter mode can be used with continuous shooting, bracketing, mirror lock-up, and multiple exposure functions. When the PENTAX Pixel Shift Resolution System is engaged, the camera’s shutter mode is locked to electronic shutter.

** In the electronic shutter mode, the SR II mechanism and the AA-fi lter simulator are inoperable.

*** When shooting a fast-moving subject in the electronic shutter mode, the subject may  appear to be distorted.

 

SR II built in, fi ve-axis shake reduction mechanism

Effective camera shake compensation of up to five shutter steps

The PENTAX KP comes equipped with the innovative sensor shift Shake Reduction II, which ensures optimum performance with any lens. In addition to common camera shake caused by pitch and yaw, this fi ve-axis mechanism also compensates for camera shake caused by horizontal and vertical shift (often generated in macro photography). Any camera shake caused by roll, which is diffi cult to handle by in-lens shake reduction systems is also compensated for. Thanks to a wide compensation range of fi ve shutter steps,* it benefi ts a number of handheld applications, such as when using a telephoto lens or shooting in poorly lit locations, to capture sharp, blurfree images.

* Measured in conformity to CIPA standards, using the smc PENTAX-DA 18-
135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF]DC WR lens at a focal length of 135mm.








































Compact, slim design

Perfect to bring with you wherever you go

PENTAX has devoted much of its eff ort to the downsizing of the camera body. By optimizing the design of internal components and mechanisms, it has succeeded in packaging exceptional imaging power, supported by original technologies and a host of advanced functions, in the PENTAX KP’s compact, slim body. It assures casual, carefree shooting not only during daily outings, but also on trips and outdoor activities.

 

Dustproof and weather resistant

Battle the elements for the perfect shot

To prevent the intrusion of water and dust into the interior, the PENTAX KP features 67 seal, 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 in adverse weather conditions. 

* AW stands for All Weather (dustproof and weather-resistant construction), while WR stands for Weather Resistant (simplifi ed weather-resistant construction).

** To prevent breakdowns or malfunctions, the user is advised to wipe rain, water and dust off the camera body and dry it completely.

Excellent cold-resistant performance at
-10°C

Highly dependable operation even at freezing temperatures

If you plan to use the PENTAX KP during the bitter-cold winter or high latitude, low temperature locations, rest assured, as it has been subjected demanding environmental tests at temperatures as low as -10°C. During this testing a vast amount of data on operational precision was gathered, including response and stability as well as fl uctuations in battery voltage.* As the result, it assures solid, trouble free operation when capturing valuable scenes.

* Battery performance declines as the temperature goes down. When shooting in cold environments, the user is advised to carry spare batteries, and to keep them warm by storing them in an inside pocket.
