Small in stature. Big in power. The PENTAX X70 packs the capability and control of 12.0 megapixels and a 24X zoom lens into a convenient, compact build. It's the heart of a DSLR in the body of a compact camera.

24X wide-angle optical zoom

The 24X optical zoom is equivalent to 26-624mm, making it ideal for close-up as well as distant shots. Whatever your need - landscapes, group shots, wildlife, sports, and more - this camera's got you covered.

12.0 megapixels

An impressive 12.0 megapixel CCD captures large, detailed images, which can be printed as 11x14 -inch enlargements (and larger) in clear resolution with impressive image quality.

High Resolution 2.7 inch LCD screen

The large, bright 2.7 inch LCD screen lets you easily compose, capture, and review your images and video with great clarity. You can also use the built-in electronic viewfinder to frame and shoot, so you know you?ll be able to get the shot in any lighting situation.

Triple Shake Reduction technology

The X70 boasts three Shake Reduction technologies to reduce camera shake and blurring of the subject: Mechanical Shake Reduction via a CCD shift mechanism, Digital Shake Reduction via high ISO, and Movie Shake Reduction for blur-free video capture.

High-speed continuous shooting

With high-speed continuous shooting at 11 FPS, the X70 makes sure you get the winning shot, even in with the fastest action.

Fast Face Detection

With PENTAX's face detection technology, the camera quickly and automatically sees up to 32 faces in 0.03 seconds, so portraits and group shots are bright and focused, even in backlit situations.

Flexible movie capture

HD movie capture vividly captures moving memories in widescreen 720p (15 FPS) as well as full speed 848x480, VGA, and QVGA resolutions.

Super Macro mode

Close focusing, Super Macro mode brings out the details in even the smallest subjects as close as 1 cm from the lens.

Comments about Pentax Pentax X70 Super Zoom Digital Camera:

I've shot over 200 images at day and night.The AWB and AF work work very well in Program Mode.All daytime exposures are excellent even at high shutter speeds and low ISOs.Picture quality/resolution is excellent.Sharpness is typical Pentax,very good.Don't buy this camera for the HD video.It is good but not great.Get an HD camcorder for better results.

Comments about Pentax Pentax X70 Super Zoom Digital Camera:

I've shot just a little over 200 images at day and night at baseball games. The AWB and AF work very well in Program Mode.All daytime exposures are very good to excellent even at high shutter speeds with low ISOs.I haven't had to re-touch exposures very much.Picture quality and resolution is excellent.Very typical Pentax sharpness.The HD video is a nice +. What I have shot is clear with very good color but you can do a lot better with a pure HD camcorder.Just be careful handling this baby,the plastic body is the only downside.
