Hello from SW Florida!

New to the forum and new to DSLR. Just ordered the Pentax K70...should arrive next Monday!! Excited!!!! Anyhow...question...I read somewhere that the camera does not come with hdmi cable and that I will need one to transfer pics to my PC...is this true? and if so...that article said I needed a mini 'C' cable but when I looked on Amazon, it lists a 'D' cable for this camera. Is there a reason the wifi would not work with my Dell to do the transfer (windows 10)?
Thanks,
Arlene

Welcome to the forums! I'm not sure what cables they include with the camera, but there are three ways of transferring images from the camera to the computer. One is via a USB cable, another is via wifi, or you could use a card reader. I prefer the last option as I find that less fiddly than using a cable; others are the other way around. Wifi I find too slow and something I use only on those rare occasions where I have to use my phone to upload images.

The K-70 is a great camera, you have something to look forward to

Good to have you with us!

Hello Arlene, and welcome aboard - glad you could join us.

Wow, a new K-70 - how exciting! I don't own one so can't advise; however, I've downloaded RAW and JPEG image samples to look at, and the image quality is really impressive. I think you're going to have a lot of fun with that new camera
