The world is full of wonders. The beautiful, breath taking scenes and exciting moments you experience. The PENTAX KP captures these once-in-a-lifetime moments in all their beauty.

The KP's compact body is packed with state-of-the-art technologies including a high-performance optical viewfinder with a user friendly interface. It is also extremely resistant to adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow and even freezing temperatures. Above all, it boasts overwhelming imaging power, supported by approximately 24.3 effective megapixels and a top sensitivity of ISO 819200.

Regardless of when or where you're shooting, the PENTAX KP is a new-generation digital SLR that will capture beautiful fascinating moments wherever in the world you may be. It delivers the true beauty of the world in high quality digital imagery.

PENTAX has devoted much of its effort to reduce the size and weight of camera bodies, based on the belief that portability is an important factor in the camera’s overall performance. The new PENTAX KP packages an array of advanced functions in its compact, slim body to assure simple, carefree shooting not only during daily outings, but also on trips and outdoor activities.

The PENTAX KP couples a new-generation CMOS image sensor with the PRIME IV imaging engine and an accelerator unit to expand the upper limit of the sensitivity range without generating annoying 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 sensitivities. It also produces high-quality images across the entire sensitivity range, from the lowest to the highest.
