We always see a handful of people reaching out for advice on the best flash for Pentax k70 cameras so we have decided to type this article up in an attempt to help as many people as possible. Rather than just focus around one single flash, we have decided to cover two products as we could not decide between the two while working through our short list of camera flashes that we wanted to feature.
That said, we would like to point out that the Yongnuo flash is cheaper, much more popular, and has a better overall reputation within the community. We feel that can push it out ahead of the Godox camera flash so we will be featuring the Yongnuo flash first followed by the Godox unit.
The Yongnuo YN 560 III Camera Flash
Due to all of this, it is no surprise that many of the photographers who picked the Yongnuo YN 560 III up have fallen in love with it and have chosen to post their own reviews (click here to read some of them) online covering the flash and offering their own external opinion and sharing their own thoughts on it.
Thankfully, the Yongnuo YN 560 III is very easy to use and will mount directly to the hot shoe on your Pentax k-70 allowing you to quickly and easily prep your camera for your flash photography. The range of the flash unit is great allowing you to easily improve your image quality in low light conditions or simply provide some better lighting for your subject during your photography session.
The image to the left shows the Yongnuo YN 560 III’s user interface and user control system used by the flash unit. Thankfully, it is very easy to navigate making it extremely easy for anyone to use no matter what level of experience you have with camera flashes.
The control system has been kept as simple as possible by design to try and help keep the costs of the flash unit as low as possible but this actually works in the units favor by making it so easy to use.
The flash requires four AA batteries and we would always recommend that you use a set of high-quality, rechargeable batteries (Click here to check for product prices and availability) with the flash unit. This makes your life so much easier while also reducing costs due to you simply recharging the batteries after use.
The recycle time of the flash unit is around three seconds and the flash can be activated between one hundred and one thousand times depending on the exact flash settings you choose to use during your session. It also supports all of the flash modes that you would expect from any self-respecting camera flash such as manual, multi, slave, S1, S2, and RX allowing you to use it in almost every situation that you may require a camera flash.
If you are looking to get a great little flash unit for your Pentax K70’s camera accessories then we would definitely recommend that you take a look at the Yongnuo YN 560 III. The excellent reputation that it has earned and maintained to this day for itself should make it the obvious choice with its low price tag and excellent performance ensuring it will be able to perform well for you.

The Godox TT600 Speedlite
Again, the Godox TT600 Speedlite is very easy to use as it mounts directly to the hot shoe mount on your Pentax k-70 allowing you to quickly and easily prep your camera for flash photography within seconds.
Although this is a budget flash unit, the user interface and control system is very basic and actually a little confusing to use in all honesty. That said, it can still hold its own against the other camera flashed at this price point, the Yongnuo YN 560 III that we covered above simply used their standard system on their budget flash helping to push their flash unit even further ahead.
The variable recycle time on the Godox TT600 allows you to set the flash to recycle within the 0.1-2.6s range helping to give it a solid advantage over the Yongnuo unit. Just keep in mind that the short the recycle time on the flash, the quicker it will get through your batteries and need you to swap out for a fresh set.
Adding the Godox TT600 to your camera accessories for your Pentax K70 will definatley help to improve your flash photography performance without having to break the bank. Although its current customer base is pretty small, it is growing at a steady rate while also earning its reputation amongst the entry level flash units.
