Pentax K-70 DSLR Camera with 18-135mm Lens (Black)
Pentax is a name known and trusted in photography, from film to modern DSLR and Mirrorless technology. 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 fps 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.
Pentax knows that the great outdoors are calling and you want pictures! Built with the photographer in mind, the Pentax K-70 offers a vari-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.
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 High-Speed AF Operation
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.
Pentax-Original Shake-Reduction System
The K-70’s in-body shake reduction (SR) mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake up to 4.5EV steps regardless of the lens type mounted. The K-70’s SR unit has a flexible design that tilts the image sensor unit in all directions, providing a host of handy shooting functions, including ASTRO TRACER, which simplifies advanced astronomical photography when used in combination with the optional O-GPS1 GPS Unit.
Nearly 100-Percent Field of View
The K-70 incorporates a glass prism finder featuring the same optics and coatings as those used in higher-level models. With a nearly 100-percent field of view and a magnification of approximately 0.95 times, it provides a wide, bright image field for easy focusing and framing.
Capture Fast-Moving Subjects in Crisp Focus
With a top shutter speed of 1/6000 second, the K-70 captures sharply focused images, even with fast-moving subjects. Coupled with its high-speed continuous shooting function with a top speed of approximately six images per second, it lets the photographer preserve once-in-a-lifetime shutter opportunities in beautifully focused images.
Vari-Angle LCD Monitor for Easy Image Viewing
The Pentax K-70 provides a host of wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) functions to support operations using smartphones and tablet computers. By installing the dedicated Image Sync application in a mobile device, the user can remotely check the Live View image, capture still images, and adjust such camera settings as aperture, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity to the desired level through the mobile device. It is even possible to download captured images onto the mobile device, then upload them on social networking service websites.
Dustproof, Weather-Resistant Body
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.
SMC Pentax DA 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens
The included zoom lens features the same weather-resistant construction as the camera body so that you can comfortably take this lens with you and know it's going to make it home again. There is a special coating to help repel dust, water, and grease on the front element. Its construction incorporates aspherical lens elements to help minimize spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range and also contribute to producing overall sharper, clearer imagery.
