As a follow-up to the K-3 DSLR Camera, the Pentax KP Digital SLR Camera boasts of a maximum ISO of 819,200 that ushers in unmatched light sensitivity especially during low-light settings. It is also equipped with a 24.3 megapixel, APS-C AA CMOS Sensor and Prime IV image processor that work together to deliver high-quality images by keeping texture and gradation true to the source.

Image enhancements are available through the five-axis SR II Shake Reduction System that reduces blur caused by camera shake and Pixel Shift Resolution System that combines several shots to achieve a single, high-resolution output. The image detection algorithm also analyses the scene to inject the right amount of exposure. Accuracy in framing can be achieved by using the Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder with 100% field of view and 0.95x magnification to check more elements within the finder.


Likewise, the anti-aliasing filter simulator reduces moiré patterns and maintains colour consistency between the subject and the image output via vibrations sent to the image sensor during exposure. Unlike usual AA filters, this function can be turned on and off to adjust the intensity of the effect depending on photographic conditions.

When the need for capturing moving subjects arises, the Pentax KP puts its 27 focus sensors at work with improved speed and accuracy. The 25 cross-type sensors placed in the middle ensure precise focusing that can be accessed in three operation modes: focus-priority, release-priority, and advance-speed-priority.


Once the shot is ready to be taken, press the shutter to access speeds of up to 1/6000 second in mechanical shutter mode with low vibration and noise. This speed can be improved in 1/24000 second in electronic shutter mode. For capturing multiple images in succession, this Pentax camera can perform boost shooting for up to seven frames per second.

Aside from capturing great images, the Pentax KP can also record H-264 Full High Definition videos at 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. Frame rates are available at 60i and 30p while audio is registered through attached devices to an external microphone terminal. Meanwhile, the 4K Interval Movie mode that capture 4K, 3840 x 2160 pixel images at constant intervals to stitch a single movie file.


To get a view of high and low shooting angles, the tilting 921k-dot LCD monitor. It also reduces reflections and light dispersions thanks to its air-tight construction. The monitor is also equipped with an Outdoor View Setting mode that automatically adjusts brightness based on lighting condition and red-light monitor display to aid photographers who have been used to taking photos at night.

Available in Black and Silver colours, the Pentax KP Digital SLR Camera is built with an SD Card slot to have ample space for all media files.
