Super-High-Resolution Image 
Featuring a new-generation APS-C-sized CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.32 effective megapixels, the Pentax KP produces super-high-resolution images. The sensor is coupled with an AA-free optical design that optimises the sensor’s imaging power to deliver well-defined images with true-to-life reproduction of gradation and texture.

The combination of the PRIME IV imaging engine and a state-of-the-art accelerator unit assures dependable, high-speed operation and effective noise reduction. Photographers will be able to photograph handheld at night using the super-high sensitivity of ISO 819,200.

Compact, Portable Body 
Designed for optimised performance, operability, and portability, the Pentax KP’s body is compact and slim. It’s constructed from lightweight magnesium alloy, with 67 sealing parts applied across the body that ensure it is dustproof, weather-resistant, and coldproof down to -10°. It can be carried comfortably and effortlessly, and performs reliably in demanding settings.

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.

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.

High-Speed 27-Point Autofocus System 

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.
