24.24 MP APS-C CMOS sensor and PRIME MII image processor
A 24.24MP APS-C CMOS sensor pairs with the PRIME MII image processor to realize clean, high-resolution still image quality, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-204800, and the ability to record Full HD 1080p video. The processor and sensor combination also affords a range of continuous shooting capabilities, including a 6 fps shooting rate for up to 40 consecutive JPEGs, 10 RAW/DNG frames, or 8 RAW+JPEG exposures.
Selectable Anti-Aliasing Filter
The PENTAX K-70’s AA-filter-free design eliminates the AA (anti-aliasing) filter, which has an adverse effect on the camera’s resolving power. This design optimizes the resolving power of the approximately 24.24 effective megapixels provided by the high-resolution APS-C-size CMOS image sensor, while assuring high-speed readout of rich-gradation, 14-bit image data.
Sensor-Shift Type Shake Reduction and Pixel Shift Resolution
In-camera sensor-shift type Shake Reduction (SR) works to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting with any mounted lens. This is ideal for working in low-light conditions or with longer lenses and, since the image stabilization is located within the body, both past, legacy lenses as well as current Pentax lenses receive the benefits of SR.
SAFOX X Autofocus System
The SAFOX X autofocus system employs 11 distinct phase-detection points, including 9 cross-type sensors in the center, to quickly and accurately acquire focus on subjects in a variety of lighting conditions down to -3 EV. Also benefitting autofocus performance, the 77-segment exposure metering sensor, light source sensor, and AF assist light help to further refine the focusing accuracy despite working in challenging situations.
