Movie recording
Many creative ways to enjoy high-quality movies

By taking full advantage of lens interchangeability — one of an SLR camera’s greatest strengths — the PENTAX K-70 captures high-resolution Full HD movie clips. Because you can set the desired aperture, you can flexibly use creative shooting techniques, such as blurring the background with a shallow depth of field, or creating a work of art similar to a theatrical film by capturing a movie at a rate of 24 frames per second, the same frame rate as filming.
During movie recording, you can also use the Continuous AF (AF-C) mode* to keep accurate focus on a moving subject, or take advantage of a new aperture control function** to automatically assure the proper exposure level even when faced with fluctuating lighting conditions. It even provides a host of user-friendly tools, such as a digital SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, digital filters and stereo sound recording using a built-in microphone.

4K-resolution Interval Movie shooting
Documenting, synthesizing and playing back a constantly changing subject in a high-resolution movie
