An all-weather digital SLR camera expands the boundaries of photo shooting, with new opportunities and discoveries in scenic photography

 

The PENTAX K-70 has a compact body for easy carry-along to any outdoor shooting. Its outstanding weather-resistant performance and enormous imaging power, combining true-to-life image description and high-sensitivity shooting, make it extremely reliable, even in most demanding shooting conditions.

Whether it is under bright, blue skies, on wild, overcast days, in the gentle rains, or under dark, starry skies, the PENTAX K-70 captures the beauty of grand nature in an astonishingly beautiful image.

 

The PENTAX K-70: a camera that brings you new experiences, new excitement and new discoveries in beautiful scenery, while helping you to be more masterful in outdoor photography.

Outdoor-friendly design to expand the boundaries of photography in harsh weather and demanding environments

 

HD PENTA X -DA 16 - 85mmF3.5 -5.6ED DC WR Aperture: F5.6 ; Shutter speed: 1/20 sec. ; Exposure compensation: -1.0EV ; ISO sensitivity: 100 ; White balance: AWB ;
Custom image: Bright ; Pixel Shift Resolution System: ON (Motion Correction)

Dustproof, weather-resistant body

Outstanding cold-proof performance down to −10°C

A comprehensive imaging system, including lens, to take on challenging scenes

Excellent reliability proven in stringent operation tests

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.
AW: All Weather (dustproof and weather-resistant); WR: Weather Resistant

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.

• 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.

• 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.

Compact design
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

DR (Dust Removal) mechanism


Accurate detection of the subject even in dark locations

Easy removal of dust particles from the image sensor

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.

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.

The front surface of the image sensor unit has been treated with SP coating to prevent particles from adhering to it.
Any remaining particles can be removed by the vertical vibrations generated by the SR driving mechanism.

Excellent operability, even with a gloved hand
Grip

Control buttons and mode dial

The newly designed grip assures a firm hold of the camera body, even when wearing gloves.

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.

Super-high-sensitivity photography to capture dramatic scenes of nature in sharp,
high-resolution images
