Like many of its pre­de­ces­sors, the Pen­tax KP boasts ad­di­tional pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments. It fea­tures 67 seals around the con­trol but­tons, di­als, cov­ers and ex­te­rior joints, which pre­vent wa­ter and fine dust par­ti­cles from en­ter­ing the cam­era. This pro­tec­tion is ex­tended when mount­ing AW ( All Weather) and WR ( Weather Re­sis­tant) se­ries lenses or the weather- re­sis­tant D- BG7 bat­tery grip to the body. The Pen­tax KP has also been pro­tected against tem­per­a­ture ex­tremes and is de­signed to work nor­mally at tem­per­a­tures as low as - 10° C , al­though as with all cam­eras used in such low tem­per­a­tures, bat­tery ca­pac­ity will be se­verely re­duced, so pack a few spares in your cam­era bag.
