Description

Never let the extreme conditions stop you with the Pentax K-70. This compact, lightweight, DSLR features the PRIME MII engine with a newly designed Accelerator Unit and a 24.24 megapixel AA-filter-less APS-C CMOS sensor for high definition images. Enjoy faster readout with 6 frames per second shooting of 14-bit RAW image data. Minimize camera shake with in-body SR (shake reduction) to assure sharp, blur-free images, even in demanding situations. Built for the toughest of shooters, this dustproof and weather-resistant camera is constructed with 100 different weather seals of protection, guarding it from the harsh environments of travel, landscape and nature photography. Built with the photographer in mind, the Pentax K-70 offers a vary-angle LCD to facilitate creative compositions. Astronomy photographers will rejoice with the addition of a Night Vision Red Light LCD to enhance those low light situations. In addition to standard interval shooting, the Pentax K-70 also features ultra high resolution 4K interval movie. It’s equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, for easy mobile transfer and social media sharing of your adventures. Take on all the extremes with the Pentax K-70, while never compromising on image quality. Super-high-resolution images captured with 24.24 effective megapixels and a top sensitivity of ISO 102400 The K-70 features a state-of-the-art 24.24 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding image quality. By coupling a newly developed accelerator unit with the high-speed PRIME MII imaging engine, the K-70 effectively minimizes noise at all sensitivity levels, and captures richly gradated, finely detailed images even in super-high-sensitivity shooting at a top sensitivity of ISO 102400. Hybrid AF system for high-speed AF operation during Live View shooting The K-70 employs Pentax’s first Hybrid AF system during Live View autofocus operation. By positioning a contrast-detection AF sensor with superior focusing accuracy and a phase-matching AF sensor on the image sensor’s surface, this innovative hybrid system optimizes the benefits of both AF systems to assure high-speed, pinpoint AF focusing on the subject. Dustproof, weather-resistant body perfect for outdoor photography The K-70 boasts a fully weather and cold proof design to resist water, fog, snow, sand and dust, for top performance in extreme field conditions. It has been designed for active outdoor shooting through a complete design review of the mode dial and control buttons as well as new grip design that provides a firm hold of the camera body even with a gloved hand. The outdoor-friendly LCD monitor features a brightness level that can be instantly adjusted to the lighting level of a shooting location, as well as a red-lighted monitor display function, which is easier on the photographer’s eye when shooting in dark locations such as during astronomical photography. High-precision autofocus system with the SAFOX X module The high-precision SAFOX X AF sensor module assures responsive, dependable autofocus operation. With its 11 sensors including nine cross-type sensors in the middle, this AF module assures pinpoint focus on the subject at a minimum brightness level as low as -3 EV. The speed of autofocus response has been improved, especially at low-illumination levels. By improving the algorithm for moving objects, the focusing accuracy in the AF-C mode has been enhanced. The K-70 assures outstanding AF tracking performance with subjects on the move, thanks to such advanced features as the Select-area Expansion function, which automatically refocuses on a moving subject after it moves away from the initial point.

CONS
  • Limited autofocus points: The K-70 has only 11 autofocus points, which is lower than some of its competitors.

  • No touch screen: The camera does not have a touch screen, which may be a downside for some photographers who are used to using touch controls on their smartphones or other devices.
  • Limited lens selection: While Pentax has a good selection of lenses, it is not as extensive as some of its competitors, which may limit the versatility of the camera for some photographers.
