Where can I get free for commercial use Photos of Pentax K-70, other cameras & lenses

I am writing a few articles about photography on blogger.com & I need to use pictures of cameras & lenses. I need they to be free to use (I wont modifying them & will be giving full credit to the author) I dont have much problem with older well established cameras since they are available from wikimedia & flickr (using google search with label for reuse filter).
But I am not able to get free pictures of Pentax K-70 & K-S2 which are needed for my article which compares differences between K-70 & K-S2.

The reason I need it to be free for commercial use is that I an thinking of experimenting with adsense in future. I saw the official Pentax site policy & read that it's free for only non commercial use.

Is there any other way in which I can have access to pictures of K-70 & K-S2 and also other photography items from other brands??

I would'nt worry about it to much. Are you sure your use is even commercial? I would just use product pictures from the pentax-ricoh site. If you need to get written persmission for every pic, it is impossible to blog or even run a website about photography.

images from here are safe to use thanks to creative commons licensing

but good luck finding k-70 images, the cameras just to new and overshadowed by the k-1

if a blog has advertisements or a shop its a bit of a gray area but you should be fine

Simple: send an e-mail to ricoh asking for permission, which will most likely be granted since you're technically promoting their products.
