The Pentax KP DSLR camera is now officially announced. The US price of Pentax KP body is $1,099 and it will be released on February 24, 2017.
The brand new Pentax KP, an ultra-compact and highly portable DSLR with features and controls that facilitate capturing outstanding images, even in the most demanding conditions. The kp packs many of the advanced capabilities of the award-winning K-3 series into a modern, slim-body design that lends itself to applications from casual snapshots to serious outdoor photography while mountain climbing or trekking.
The Pentax KP also adds a new generation of innovations including a new, highly sensitive APS-C CMOS sensor and is the first APS-C camera to incorporate shake reduction II (SR II), which features a five-axis mechanism to compensate for camera shake up to 5 steps. The new Megapixel CMOS sensor enables shooting in extremely low-light conditions, with sensitivity to ISO 819200, making the camera ideal for night photography. The PENTAX KP features an electronic shutter option in live-view to enable high-speed shooting up to 1/24,000-second, which greatly broadens shooting capabilities when using large aperture lenses to achieve a shallow depth of field on a bright sunny day.
