The Pentax K-70 is perfect for serious photographic enthusiasts. Packed with technological features and a durable weather-sealed construction, it delivers razor sharp images and Full HD video, even in the most physically demanding shooting scenarios.
24 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
At its core the K-70 utilises an updated 24.24 megapixel APS-C sensor that delivers high resolution images with support for 14-bit RAW image files. This delivers maximum versatility in post-processing, allowing you to realise your creative vision without a loss in image quality.
Further bolstering its imaging capabilities, Pentax has removed the anti-aliasing filter, providing the maximum possible resolution for superior detail during both photo and video shooting.
In-Camera Shake Reduction
Pentax’s impressive sensor-shift technology powers in-body shake reduction (SR), that works to stabilise any attached lens, whether Pentax or third party, manual or automatic and compensate for camera vibrations or handheld shake. Especially handy in low-light scenarios, the shake reduction offers an approximate 4.5 stop advantage, improving your exposure versatility without compromising image detail and clarity.
Ensuring suitability across a diverse range of shooting scenarios, the PRIME MII image processor complements the sensor with 6fps burst mode shooting and a maximum 1/6000th shutter speed to ensure you are equipped with the power to capture fast moving action with maximum clarity. Additionally, the processor delivers a maximum ISO204800, further aiding your flexibility when lighting conditions are not ideal.
Full-Time Autofocus in Movie Mode
Its Full HD video recording is complemented by an innovative hybrid autofocusing system that combines contrast-detection autofocus with on-sensor phase detection pixels to deliver smooth, full-time autofocus capabilities during video recording. Great for vlogging and casual movie recording, it offers the simplicity of point-and-shoot style filming without compromising on image quality or usability. For more creative users, the camera also features a microphone input for professional level audio recording and the ability to create 4K time-lapse sequences that delivers ultra-high resolution time-lapse videos in-camera.
3-inch Flip-Out LCD Screen
Image composition and review is a joy with its 3-inch 921k-dot tilt/swivel LCD screen. Perfect for shooting from high and low angles, it can also face forward to make selfies and video blogging a breeze. For more traditional style shooting the 0.95x pentaprism optical viewfinder delivers improved brightness and an approximate 100% frame coverage for pixel perfect compositions.
Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity
Instant sharing of your favourite images is easy thanks to the K70's built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Used in conjunction with the image sync app the wireless capabilities also enable remote live view and camera control, allowing you to capture images from hard-to-reach places and unique viewpoints.
Weather Sealed Camera Body
The construction of the K-70 features a fully weather-sealed exterior that offers a professional level dust and water resistance. Its approximate 100 points of sealing can be combined with a wide-range of K-Mount weather sealed lenses and accessories enabling you to shoot in the rain, snow, desert and other demanding environments in temperatures down to -10°C.
Perfect All-Round Workhorse
With its impressive technological arsenal and durable, high quality construction the Pentax K70 DSLR delivers impressive quality photos and videos across a diverse range of scenarios, making it well-suited for a broad range of photographers and environments.
