For a minute Stan, I thought you'd bought a Canon to shoot at the Pentax Offices

Thanks for that angerdan and thanks to everyone else who has tried to help.
As almost every U-Tube video I've watched uses a Canon camera I've bitten the bullet and bought and older Canon. If that doesn't work I'll pop it on eBay as I won't be buying any lenses for it.
I do like my K-70 and K-3 which I'm keeping so can still be a member of the Pentax User Forum. Should it work OK for what I want to do it will be a permanent fixture to my microscope

The K-70 is one of the best Pentax DSLRs usable for videos
It has the Hybrid AF at Live View:

And with the ImageSync App you can take pictures and see LV images from your Tablet/Smartphone.

Would probaly have tried that if I'd had a cable that fit the K-70 but I didn't, just hoping I didn't damage the socket. I'll keep it for straight forward photography now, or macro . Tablet is very slow running now and rarely have my phone on except to check the battery. Thanks for all the advice and help.
