The Pentax KP features the SR II (Shake Reduction II*) where the five-axis mechanism allows effective compensation for camera shake caused by pitch and yaw, horizontal and vertical shift, and roll by as much as five shutter steps. 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 effects during the composition process.
Pentax has devoted a lot of time to reduce the size and weight of their camera bodies. This is based on the belief that portability is an important factor in the camera’s overall performance. The new Pentax KP features an array of advanced functions in a compact, slim body to ensure great photographic results whether shooting outdoors or in.
