  • Pentax K-70 Shake reduction

  • Fine Sharpness and Extra Sharpness


    Sharpness-enhancing tools to improve the image rendition of photographic works

    A sharpness-enhancing process using thick outlines often spoils the image’s resolution. That’s why the PENTAX K-70 provides a pair of more advanced sharpness-enhancing functions (Fine Sharpness and Extra Sharpness), which are similar to those offered by upper-class models. The Fine Sharpness function outlines the subject with thinner, more natural lines than those created by normal processing to produce a high-quality, fine-detailed image. The Extra Sharpness function emphasizes the subject’s outline more prominently with much finer lines, making it particularly useful for enhancing the outline of a low-contrast subject.
  • An array of compensation functions


    High-quality images assured, even at the edges of the image field

    The PENTAX K-70 effectively compensates distortion, vignetting and lateral chromatic aberration of magnification caused by particular characteristics of a lens to deliver sharp, high-contrast images, even at the edges. During RAW-data development, it can even compensate for the fringe effect.
  • Diffraction compensation


    Diffraction blur minimized at closed-down apertures

    This function compensates the deterioration in the camera’s resolving power that is caused by diffraction phenomena. By properly using lens information to process image data, it compensates the diffraction blur effect by as much as approximately two aperture stops.* This function comes in handy in scenic photography, when you want to close the aperture down to increase the depth of field without compromising the resolving power.

    * Measured under RICOH IMAGING in-house testing standards.

    • This function is usable with D FA-, DA- and DA L-series lenses. FA-series lenses are also usable, except for some models.

Pixel Shift Resolution System

Optimizing the potential of the high-pixel image sensor to capture breathtaking, super-high-resolution images 

By taking advantage of the SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, this innovative system captures four images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image, then synthesizing them into a single composite image. It obtains all colour data in each pixel to deliver super-high-resolution images with far more truthful colours and much finer details than those captured by normal shooting processes. The difference in image resolution is evident, even without enlarging the image on the monitor or making a large-size print. When a Motion Correction function is activated, it automatically detects a moving object during continuous shooting and minimizes negative effects during the synthesizing process. The images captured by this system can be saved as RAW-format files.

  • When using this system, we advise stabilizing the camera firmly on a tripod. The user is also advised to use either the self-timer setting of the drive mode, a remote control function, or a mirror lock-up function.
  • This system may not produce the desired effect when the subject is on the move or the camera is shaken.
  • This system may not correct certain types of subject movement. It does not guarantee that the movement is properly corrected with all subjects. The user may turn the Auto Tracking function off in order to optimize the system’s performance.

For instance, you can adjust camera settings including aperture, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity to the desired level, then release the shutter from your mobile device. You can even download captured images onto the mobile device, then upload your favourite images to social networking service websites.

    *Image Sync can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store (for iOS models) or Google Play™ (for Android™ models).

In-body RAW data development

Application of the desired finishing touch without a computer

The PENTAX K-70 allows for in-body development of RAW-format files, with the developed files saved as separate JPEG files. You can adjust a wide range of parameters, and add the desired finishing touch to your image without needing a PC. You can even develop RAW-format files created by the Pixel Shift Resolution System or those recorded in the HDR mode.

Digital Camera Utility 5

Standard software for a high-quality finish

Included as a standard accessory, Digital Camera Utility 5 software allows you to browse through captured images on a computer screen, and develop RAW-format files to save them as JPEG- or TIFF-format files. Because you can change colours and check photographic data on the computer screen, you can take your time in finishing the image exactly the way you want it.

Easy to hold, a range of exposure/ settings options.
My previous experience is 35mm up to 1990's when I purchase a small Nikon auto digital so no previous DSLR knowledge.
I have used this camera for 2 months since purchase and have become familiar with its weight and controls in use. I have also used it manually with my 25 to 30 yr old lenses and am now beginning to appreciate the K-70's full range of features. I am well pleased!!
The marking is based on the features, eventual ease of use and price compared to other cameras in the same range.
The Pentax K-70 is excellent but proved to be a challenge to a DSLR novice despite my previous 35mm experience.
Due to it being a new model, though having many features of previous models, I had to go on-line to get clues on getting to grips with it. An idiots starter guide with progressive chapters up to full use would have been a bonus.

I am a Pentax fan so I up graded from a K50 which meant all the previous lenses, batteries and other accessories all fitted the K70 ready to go instantly. I love the adjustable viewing screen with my knees getting down low is a pain!
