Video skill level

Casual videos - If the technicalities involved in altering video settings are not a priority, then this Pentax device is a very good option!

Photo Scenarios

The Pentax K-70 has a sensor size of 23.5 x 15.6 mm (mm) which is crucial for capturing as much light information as possible when taking photographs of the cosmos. The ability to shoot and store images as RAW files and not just JPEG is important for this kind of photography. This model delivers on that!

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the K-70 is an easy recommendation for this.

While taking those action shots during the day's event, you'll be aiming to keep your subject matter in sharp focus while they're in motion. The Auto Focus Tracking capability that comes with this camera helps with this.

As lots of sports happen at night or in-doors, the image sensor size plays an important role in image quality during low light conditions. In addition to its 23.5 x 15.6 mm(mm) sensor size, the Pentax K-70, also comes with a Tracking Focus mode which is great for photos were the subject is constantly moving.

Taking photos while underwater is a lot of fun. You'll be able to bathe the subject of your photograph with the colours and hues only found when taking shots in an aquatic environment.

Whether on holiday or exploring new places, this camera from Pentax is a great choice. Taking photos of what's around you - near and far - with the K-70 is a breeze.

When taking photos of the beautiful creatures of the wild, you'll need to have Tracking Focus mode activated so as not to miss any great moments while they are active in their habitat. Burst shots help as well, which this camera happens to have making it a very good option for your needs.

To capture mother nature in her full beauty requires a good eye and a camera that can adequately handle landscape scenarios. This model from Pentax is good fit as it's got the ability to focus on multiple parts of your picture frame.

Other considerations

With this model, you no longer need to worry about carrying cables for data transfer all the time as it comes with Wi-FI.
