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 Nikon D500

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

The official samples of the Pentax KP camera is now out. As Pentax promised the camera is able to shoot images upto 819200 ISO, well it’s quite high and but surprisingly none of the samples images are even captured at ISO 6400.
The only one sample we caught capture at ISO 3200 is the sample below, while looking at 100% scale the image look impressive and color noise of the image is very well controlled. (High Resolution samples links at last)

Pentax KP image

Pentax KP announced today and the specification camera features isn’t a surprise for our regular readers since we are the first website to tell you the Pentax KP Can see in Dark, Features ISO Sensitivity of 819200.

Pentax KP core specification secures it place to be called one of the best APS-C sensor DSLRs to be present at moment. We have no obligation to say that the KP is fully capable to compete against the Nikon D500 and Canon 7D Mark II.

But the biggest fallback of the camera is it doesn’t carry 4K video recording mode. Even as a Still photographer I want a full capable camera in my hand. I don’t want technology should limit my creativity.

Pentax KP

Sensor

The Pentax KP camera features newly developed 24 megapixels CMOS sensor and powered by  PRIME IV Image processor.  The combo allows Pentax KP to boost ISO 819200, even 1 stop more than Sony A7S II camera.

5 axis IS II

The Pentax KP is the first APS-C DSLR to feature 5-Axis Shake Reduction System. The 5 axis IS system work horizontal and vertical shift, roll, as well as pitch and yaw. The camera allow you to use shutter speed as much as five shutter steps down then the standard one.

Pixel Shift Resolution

The other big features is pixel shift resolution that creates big composite files of super resolution images. The camera system uses sensor shake mechanism to create high MP files on the go.
