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 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 3 different sized grips are included with the camera. Will be interesting to see if it can be used with none at all, look how much they emphasize “slim”.

    This is made light, thin and a bit retro for small DA Ltd lenses; that is why there is two toned version too. Brilliant.

    Typical Pentax… an awesome little camera…
    unfortunately no sale, here with me…
    I need video as well as stills.
    if my k3 dies, gets lost or stolen, then all the pentax glass goes up on ebay.
    Panasonic, BMD, here I come… 🙁

      When your obsession with video runs out, you may at any time take some photography courses, to learn photography, and then the Pentax DSLR may come in handy.

        now that was a moronic assumption to make….

        I’ve been published in dozens of magazines over the last two years, and have films shown in theatres and festivals.

        I make my living at this.

        I have owned pentax cameras since the 80’s and have probably forgotten more about photography over the years than guys like you could ever learn… lol!
