Pentax KP First HIGH ISO TEST

Pentax KP High ISO test image and analysis

Well I was really waiting for the Pentax KP HIGH ISO Test result and guess what I am really surprised to see the breathtaking performance of the KP DSLR. The Pentax KP DSLR is the second DSLR after Nikon D500 to touch out the ISO 819,200 mark.

While talking to many pentax professional users we came to know that the new KP camera is somehow performing parallel in-terms of image quality compared to Penatx FF DSLR K-1.

Let’s take a look at the High ISO test of the Pentax KP camera against Canon 80D and Nikon D500.

While comparing the Pentax KP camera with Canon 80D

Pentax-KP-vs-Canon-80D ISO

Canon 80D is most successful APC-C DSLR of present time, some online test reports claimed that Canon 80D sensor performance is even better than Canon 7D Mark II sensor performance.

But Now it’s time to look at the test of Pentax KP camera against Canon 80D DSLR. We can clearly notice that Pentax KP is able to collect bit more details compared to the Canon 80D camera.

pentax KP vs D500

before we begin you must note the megapixel difference between the both DSLR camera. The Nikon D500 features a 20 MP APS-C sensor whereas the Pentax KP comes with a 24MP APS-C sensor.

The result of using a high resolution sensor is clearly visible in the test, as we can notice that KP is able to extract more details compared to the Nikon D500 camera, at the same time the images coming out from the Nikon D500 camera look bit flat.

Despite of having bit lower resolution / large photo-diodes the Nikon D500 controlling color noise more better than the Penatx KP

  • There is a surprising material error in the post:

    Pixel count is a marketing aid – it is NOT “resolution”).
    You should know this simple fact.

    The resolution difference is calculated as: the square root of (the larger decided by the smaller), i.e. the square root of 1.2.
    This makes the LINEAR resolution increase from 20mp to 24mp is 9.5%, which is near invisible at the same size.

    The difference in detail you are seeing, therefore cannot possibly be due to the extra pixels. That claim claim is misinformation and should be edited out.

    The most likely reason for the difference (other than a good sensor), is image processing.

    Agree.

    It’s very simple the Pentax KP have 24 MP vs 21 MP 14% more pixels compared to the Nikon D500. And at the same time you also have 17.85µm2 vs 15.24µm2 13% larger pixel area inside the D500.

    SO every thing is very clear and simple due to 13% larger pixel area the D500 will gather more light per pixel and due to 14% more pixels the KP get more fine details compared to the competitor.
