First Look at the Pentax KP DSLR

Earlier today Pentax introduced a new APS-C DSLR called the KP. This relatively compact body DSLR has a new high sensitivity sensor and an innovative feature which did not exist until now on any DSLR – an exchangeable front grip (for different size hands).

In the video above by Adorama, photographer Daniel Norton talks about his short experience with the camera and some of its main features which also includes a second generation 5-Axis in-body shake reduction, full weather-sealing and an interesting LCD with tilting options.

Here are the main features of the new Pentax KP:

  • Sensor: a new 24.3MP APS-C without an AA filter.
