PENTAX K-70 SLR Camera Released


RICOH is launching the PENTAX K-70, an advanced entry-level DSLR with an AA-filterless 24MP APS-C sensor and a compact, dustproof and weather-resistant body designed for all types of outdoor photography.

The PENTAX K-70 is designed to be an all-weather camera, thanks to its dustproof, weather-resistant construction and dependable cold-proof performance down to temperatures as low as -10C. It incorporates a newly developed accelerator unit, which performs noise processing in collaboration with the PRIME MII imaging engine and allows super-high-sensitivity photography at a top sensitivity of ISO 102400.

It also features a new Hybrid AF system, which harmonizes the advantages of both the image-plane phase-matching AF system and the contrast detection AF system, in order to assure the maximum speed and accuracy of AF operations during Live View shooting.

It even provides a range of features, including the PENTAX-developed Pixel Shift Resolution System; an AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator with the same moire reduction effect as an optical AA filter; an optical viewfinder with nearly 100 percent field of view; and an in-body shake reduction mechanism with a shake reduction effect equivalent to approximately 4.5 shutter steps. For remote shooting operation and easy transfer of captured images to smartphones and tablet computers, it also features a built-in wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) module.

A PRIME MII image processor allows for 14-bit readout and a maximum ISO of 102,400. Movie recording tops out at 1080/30p, augmented by a 4K interval mode that combines 4K resolution stills into a movie file.

The PENTAX K-70 comes equipped with an outdoor-friendly, 3" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor whose brightness level can be instantly adjusted to the lighting level of a shooting location.

The camera will cost $649.95. Ricoh says it will announce availability at the beginning of July.
