- SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism
- Compact body
Outdoor-friendly design to expand the boundaries of photography in harsh weather and demanding environments
Despite its compact body, the PENTAX K-70 assures outstanding reliability in harsh environmental conditions, thanks to a dustproof, weather-resistant body and solid operation at -10°C. It can be used anytime and anywhere, without worrying about the weather or shooting location.
Super-high-sensitivity photography to capture dramatic scenes of nature in sharp, high-resolution images
Newly developed noise-reduction technology provides super-high-sensitivity shooting at ISO 102400 (standard output sensitivity), capturing beautiful, lively images of nature without a hint of grain, even at higher sensitivity settings. A combination of PENTAX-original SR (Shake Reduction) mechanisms with 4.5-shutter-step compensation and a high-resolution image sensor produces rich gradation and true-to-life texture.
Responsive, high-precision AF system to capture a sharp, crisp image of the subject in a wide range of photographic scenes
By incorporating a hybrid AF system — which harmonizes the advantages of a contrast-detection AF sensor and an image-plane phase-matching AF sensor — the PENTAX K-70 assures responsive, high-accuracy autofocus operation during Live View shooting using the LCD monitor. The optical viewfinder provides a large, clear image field with an approximately 100% field of view, allowing you to keep the subject in sight at all times.
Dustproof, weather-resistant body
A comprehensive imaging system, including lens, to take on challenging scenes
The PENTAX K-70 incorporates 100 sealing parts throughout its body, including the LCD monitor, to prevent the intrusion of water and dust into the interior. By pairing it with a PENTAX AW- or WR-series lens, you have a highly dependable imaging system with superb environment-resistant performance.
* To eliminate the potential causes of breakdown or malfunction, we advise you to wipe rain or water off the PENTAX K-70 completely and as soon as possible to keep it dry.
Outstanding cold-proof performance down to −10°C
Excellent reliability proven in stringent operation tests
Anticipating many users’ needs for photo shooting in extremely cold locations, the PENTAX K-70 was subjected to stringent environmental tests in temperatures as low as -10°C. Its dependable cold-weather performance assures stable, responsive, high-precision operation of mechanisms and circuitry, while minimizing fluctuations in battery voltage, even in freezing locations.
Battery performance may deteriorate as the temperature of the shooting location goes down. When using the PENTAX K-70 in low-temperature locations, we advise users to carry a spare battery and keep it warm by storing it in a pocket.
A compact, maneuverable body, handy for outdoor shooting
Featuring a dustproof, weather-resistant body and a vari-angle LCD monitor, the PENTAX K-70 has also been designed to be compact and maneuverable. By pairing it with one of the compact, lightweight PENTAX-DA-series lenses, you can enjoy outdoor photography more easily and intuitively than ever before.
High-precision autofocusing even at −3EV illumination level
Accurate detection of the subject even in dark locations
The PENTAX K-70 comes equipped with a dependable, high-sensitivity AF sensor module with nine cross-type sensors in the middle. It captures the subject with great accuracy, even in poorly illuminated locations — as low as -3EV — where even the human eye has difficulty in detecting the subject.
DR (Dust Removal) mechanism
Easy removal of dust particles from the image sensor
The PENTAX K-70’s image sensor is treated with PENTAX-original SP coating to prevent dust from clinging to the surface. If any dust remains on the surface, the PENTAX-original DR (Dust Removal) mechanism can shake it off using high-speed vibrations, preventing any dust spots from appearing on captured images.
Excellent operability, even with a gloved hand
The newly designed grip assures a firm hold of the camera body, even when wearing gloves.
Control buttons and mode dial
Four buttons of the four-way controller are contoured for easy access and unfailing fingertip operation, even with a gloved hand. The mode dial’s height has been optimized for ease of rotation. The PENTAX K-70 has been designed with meticulous attention to every detail to provide optimum comfort and utmost operability.
Top sensitivity of ISO 102400
Super-high-sensitivity photography and remarkable imaging power
The PENTAX K-70 features a new accelerator unit, which has been designed to optimize the newly developed, high-performance noise-processing technology. In combination with the PRIME MII imaging engine, this unit effectively reduces noise to a minimum, even during super-high sensitivity shooting at ISO 102400 (standard output sensitivity). This combination not only improves image quality at more commonly used sensitivities, but also delivers beautifully depicted images at higher sensitivities by minimizing graininess. As the result, it expands the boundaries of low-illumination photography.
APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with 24.24 effective megapixels
High-performance image sensor unit for fine-detailed images
The PENTAX K-70’s AA-filter-free design eliminates the AA (anti-aliasing) filter, which has an adverse effect on the camera’s resolving power. This design optimizes the resolving power of the approximately 24.24 effective megapixels provided by the high-resolution APS-C-size CMOS image sensor, while assuring high-speed readout of rich-gradation, 14-bit image data.
