With a dustproof, weather-resistant, cold-proof construction, the Pentax K-70 with 18-135mm lens is designed to be an all-weather camera suitable for outdoor photography. The K-70 offers a vast amount of advanced, user-friendly features to optimise image quality, including: a large state-of-the-art 24 megapixel CMOS sensor; an optical viewfinder with almost 100 percent field of view; the Pentax-developed Pixel Shift Resolution System; in-body shake reduction; and an AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator. The newly-developed accelerator unit performs high-level noise-processing to allow super-high sensitivity photography of up to ISO 102400, and the Hybrid AF system combines the advantages of phase-matching AF and contrast-detection AF to provide high-speed, accurate AF during Live View shooting. The Pentax K-70 also has built-in wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) for remote shooting and transferring images, and an outdoor-friendly, 3 inch rear LCD screen that can be customised to suit the shooting environment.

Pentax K-70 Digital SLR Camera: Details
Capture high resolution images with the 24 megapixel sensor
The Pentax K-70 features a state-of-the-art CMOS sensor with 24 megapixels.
Tough, weather-sealed system
Dust-proof, weatherproof, waterproof, and cold-proof down to -10°C, the Pentax K-70 is the perfect camera to use outdoors no matter the weather conditions.
It has been designed for active outdoor shooting such as mountain climbing and camping, with a new grip design that provides a firm hold even whilst wearing gloves, and a redesigned mode dial and control buttons.
The rear LCD monitor’s brightness can be adjusted depending on the shooting environment and location, and features a red-lighted display function for astronomical or low-lighting photography.
Optical Viewfinder with nearly 100 percent field of view
Incorporating a glass prism finder featuring the same optics and coating as those used within higher-level models, the Pentax K-70’s viewfinder has a nearly 100 percent field of view and magnification of approximately 0.95 times to provide a wide and bright image.
Shoot with super-high sensitivity
The newly-developed accelerator unit works with the high-speed PRIME MII imaging engine to minimise noise at all sensitivity levels, allowing you to capture fine-detailed images even at the top sensitivity of ISO 102400.
High-speed AF operation during Live View shooting
The Pentax K-70 uses Pentax’s first Hybrid AF system which combines the advantages of phase-matching AF and contrast-detection AF to guarantee pinpoint, high-speed AF when shooting via Live View.
High-precision autofocus system
Featuring the high-precision SAFOX X AF sensor module, the Pentax K-70 has a responsive and dependable autofocus system. There are 11 sensors including 9 cross-type sensors in the centre, which can accurately focus at a minimum brightness level as low as -3 EV.
The accuracy in AF-C mode has been enhanced due to the advanced features such as: Select-area Expansion, which automatically refocuses on a moving subject after it moves from the starting point; and an AF Hold function that maintains the initial focus point even when the subject is no longer in sight.
Outstanding AF tracking performance when photographing moving subjects.
Featuring Pentax’s own Shake-reduction system
The Pentax K-70 minimises camera shake to deliver sharp, blur-free photographs even with telephoto lenses or in low-light conditions, due to the high-accuracy gyro sensor that provides a compensation effect of 4.5 shutter steps.
Pixel Shift Resolution System
The latest super-resolution technology, called Pixel Shift Resolution System, captures four images of the same scene and then synthesises them into a single composite image.
This innovative system obtains all colour data from each pixel to produce super-high-resolution images with accurate colours and fine details.
An array of customisation options
The Pentax K-70 allows the user to customise a choice of menu items and the order they appear in.
The user can also assign one of the seven functions to each of the two Fx buttons.
There are also three USER modes, which the user can assign desired camera settings to.
AA (anti-aliasing) filter simulator to minimise moiré
The Pentax K-70’s AA filter simulator provides the same level of moiré reduction as an optical AA filter, but unlike an optical AA filter can be switched on or off and adjusted based on the photographic conditions.
Capture fast-moving subjects with high-speed shutter
The Pentax K-70 has a maximum shutter speed of 1/6000 second, allowing photographers to capture sharply focused images even with fast-moving subjects.
High-speed continuous shooting function has a top speed of six images per second.
Upgraded Full HD Movie recording
The Pentax K-70 is capable of capturing high-resolution Full HD (1080p) video in the H.264 recording format.
A built-in stereo microphone records stereo sound.
When the HD DA 55-300mm f4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE or SMC DA 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 ED AL IF DC WR lenses are used, the user can take advantage of the Continuous AF (AF-C) mode to accurately focus on moving subjects.
When the HD DA 55-300mm f4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE lens is used, users can automatically set exposure using the new aperture control function.
4K Interval Movie mode connects a series of 4K-resolution still images at a fixed interval to create a single movie file.
Vari-angle LCD monitor
Shoot from a variety of angles using the vari-angle LCD screen.
Connect to a smartphone using the Wireless LAN Connection
By installing the Image Sync application on a mobile device, users can remotely check the Live View image, capture still images, transfer captured images, or adjust camera settings such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.
77-segment multi-pattern metering system for high-precision light metering
DR (Dust Removal) mechanism to shake dust off from the surface of the CMOS image sensor
Timer exposure mode— a new shooting feature incorporated for the first time in a PENTAX digital SLR camera — which allows the user to expend an exposure time to as long as 20 minutes in Bulb mode, and automatically closes the shutter when the user-selected exposure time expires
A pair of e-dials for efficient control of the PENTAX-invented hyper operating system
Self-timer function, which even works in the Continuous AF (AF-C) mode
Clarity control and Skin Tone correction functions — a pair of the latest image processing technologies developed by RICOH Central Laboratory
A selection of imaging tools, such as Custom Images, Digital Filters and Scene Modes

In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
In regular, permanent employment.
Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
