A well-rounded bundle, the black Pentax KP DSLR Camera Body with AF360FGZ II Flash Kit from B&H pairs the APS-C-format body with the on-camera AF360FGZ II flash.
Pentax KP DSLR Camera (Body Only, Black)
Taking the stage as a modular and compact camera option in the Pentax lineup is the black KP DSLR with a unique smart function exchangeable grip that can be swapped as needed by the photographer. Beyond this, the KP was designed for outstanding low-light performance due to a newly developed 24.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor that eliminates its anti-aliasing filter and the PRIME IV Engine with an accelerator unit for processing. This enables it to reach sensitivities up to ISO 819200 with minimal noise as well as capture maximum sharpness at all times. A 5-axis in-body Shake Reduction II module further assists image quality by compensating for up to 5 stops of shutter speed during longer exposures as well as activating the Pixel Shift Resolution mode.
Still imaging benefits from the use of a SAFOX 11 27-point AF sensor, which will help photographers lock onto their subjects quickly and accurately. This is sure to come in handy when shooting at the max speed of 7 fps. Also, the camera is equipped with a mechanical shutter of 1/6000 second and an electronic shutter that is able to reach 1/24000 second. Along with stills, the KP is capable of recording Full HD 1080p video at up to 30 fps and it has interval shooting capable of creating a 4K movie. The weather-sealed magnesium alloy body also sports built-in Wi-Fi along with a tilting 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor and a 0.95x optical viewfinder with 100% coverage.
Smart Function Exchangeable Grip
24.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor & PRIME IV Engine with Accelerator Unit
This sensor combines with the power of the PRIME IV 14-bit image processing engine with accelerator unit to create large images with ease and speed. Improving upon the past generation, the PRIME IV can deliver photographs at up to 7 fps in raw format for up to 8 frames. This processor also helps control numerous advanced features, including Pixel Shift Resolution and more.
5-Axis In-Body Shake Reduction II
Pentax takes advantage of the sensor's available movement in order to develop additional features, such as the Pixel Shift Resolution setting. This mode shifts the sensor in order to capture full color data on each pixel by compositing four shots. This grants exceptional clarity, lowers noise, and boosts the effective resolution. Additionally, the KP has a motion correction setting that allows this function to be used even when shooting handheld.
Another capability is an Image Composition Assist function, which allows you to shift the sensor up/down and left/right as well as slightly rotate it. This lets users easily adjust their composition without needing to move their camera and can be useful for delicately balanced tripod work.

Pentax AF360FGZ II Flash
Complete your durable, rugged All Weather camera setup with the P-TTL capable AF360FGZ II Flash from Pentax which features 28 seals, including the hot shoe, that enable a reliable weather-resistant digital imaging system. This unit has a guide number of 118' at ISO 100 and 85mm along with a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 24-85mm, though the auto zoom function is compatible with smaller format Q-series mirrorless cameras, APS-C DSLRs, and medium format 645-series digital cameras. Also, with the use of a built-in diffusion panel the coverage can be extended to 20mm. Another benefit of this flash is tilt from -10 to 90° and rotation 135° to the left and 180° to the right for complete bounce functionality.
The AF360FGZ II has wireless master and slave TTL capabilities with access to 4 channels. It utilizes an optical pulse to transmit information and trigger flash units up to 13.1' away. Also, this unit can be set as a master, control, or slave unit and has access to a contrast control sync setting that enables the adjustment of the output of multiple flashes from a single unit.
An added feature for this flash is a constant LED light with 5 output settings for use during video, as an AF assist light, or as simply another light for your subject. Other settings include a multi-flash mode for stroboscopic photography as well as slow, high-speed, first and second curtain sync. Additionally, the AF360FGZ II runs on 4 AA batteries with a recycle time of 2.3-17.7 seconds and it comes with a case and stand.
