Pentax KP w/ custom Wooden Grip & Grip Extender/Tripod Plate - Shutter Count: 11295

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax KP w/ custom Wooden Grip - Shutter Count: 11295

Asking Price
777.00 CAD
(Approximately USD$614)


Item Location
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

Item Description
Price is in Canadian Dollars

Lens not included, but is for sale in one of my other ads. If you purchase both the lens and camera I will knock off $50. They pair nicely, don't they?

Improved/Added:

- Wooden Mode Dial lettering re-done in white to increase visibility

- Added a custom Arca/Swiss tripod plate with integrated wooden pinky rest/grip extender

Pentax KP
Custom wooden grip, stained a cherry red. Mode dial is also reproduced out of wood, stained the same as the grip. Plastic ring around the Mode dial has a slight cosmetic bonk on it. Body has a couple of light cosmetic dings here or there. Also included are two partial grip casts (in case you are a fellow DIYer) and one of the original grips (I harvested the hardware from the back for the custom grip) and one prototype wooden grip. The screw and hardware were removed from the original grip and used in the final custom grip, and can be removed and used to mount either the original grip or the prototype grip. Aftermarket battery and charger included. Local buyers will receiver a second, bonus battery (unfortunately I am restricted to shipping one battery with the camera).

Shutter Count: 11295

PayPal Other (Elaborate)

Return Policy & Additional Details
Payment:
PayPal in Canadian dollars. For Canadian buyers who prefer to pay via Interac E-Transfer, I will discount the asking price by 3.5%. Payment must clear before shipment.

Shipping:
Buyer pays shipping, which will be fully insured for your protection. Domestic shipping via Canada Post; International Shipping with DHL (I have a discounted rate through my work). DHL cannot ship to PO boxes, in which case I will fall back to regular post. In these circumstances I cannot ship the camera with a battery as Canada Post does not allow exporting of Lithium cells.

Please Note: I will not ship to parcel forwarding services, and I will screen all addresses beforehand. No, I won't believe that your nephew lives in a warehouse on the outskirts of Miami that just happens to also house ViaBox or InstaShip or whatever.

Returns:
I am not a retail store, I do not accept returns. Sold as-is and as-described. I am happy to video-conference over Zoom, etc, to give you a virtual preview of the camera and answer any questions you may have.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

I am interested only in the grip. Do you sell it separately?

I'll have to leave that to someone else, no room in my schedule for that kind of project.

Maybe a 3D printer could help, but I am not able to use one.

Fair enough. Do you have any documentation on what the process you followed was?

No, sorry. It was just a DIY project due to the relatively poor ergonomics of the stock grips.

Oh I get that. Just a thought. Thanks for posting. I hope someone grabs the camera the KP is nice. I leaned to enjoy mine with a stock grip but choices are great.

I love the look of the grip, but that mode dial looks hard to read. Can the original dial be replaced?

Some of the functions definitely smeared out. Hand etching with a dremel tool maybe wasnít the best plan, I should use this as an excuse to buy a laser cutter/etcher, lol.

You can definitely replace the top dial, my only issue is that my dial top was lost and I wasnít able to find a replacement. Hence the DIY job. If thatís the only thing holding you back then Iím happy to re-do the dial topper. Let me know!

Many may - like me - have engaged interested in the grip as existing KP owners. The views may be due to automatic subscription to the thread. Itísa nice camera and the grip looks great. I am surprised it hasnít sold myself.
