The Pentax KP couples a new generation 24MP APS-C CMOS image sensor with the PRIME IV imaging engine and an accelerator unit. Together these expand the upper limit of the sensitivity range without generating unwanted noise. With a top sensitivity of ISO 819200, it assures super high sensitivity photography to deliver high resolution, rich gradation images with faithful reproduction of the subject’s texture and a sense of depth, even at higher ISO settings. It also produces high quality images across the entire sensitivity range.
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.
