Japanese camera marque Pentax has released its newest model, the KP, as part of its compact DSLR category. Resembling 35mm film cameras of yore, the KP manages to pack some of the latest imaging technology into its diminutive yet weatherproofed frame, such as five-axis body stabilization, a 27-point autofocus system, and an APS-C sensor capable of shooting 24-megapixel images. Its crowning glory, however, is undeniably the KP’s maximum ISO setting of a whopping 819,000 ISO, putting it way ahead of all other competition in terms of low-light performance.

The KP also incorporates a 3-inch vertical-tilt articulating screen, as well as a removable grip. Look for the KP to become available from February 23 onwards for $1,100 USD.
