Pentax Q: World’s Smallest Digital Interchangeable Lens Camera

by Shane McGlaun

Pentax has a bunch of cameras under its belt and the company has trotted a new one out today that looks verty cool. If you like a camera with high quality photo capability and interchangeable lenses but you want the thing to be small, the new Pentax Q might be for you. The camera is hailed as the world’s smallest interchangeable lens digital camera system.

The Pentax Q series camera has a 12.4MP resolution image sensor and uses a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor. Pentax says this is a new category compared to normal point-and-shoots, APS-C, and micro four thirds cameras. The sensor is backlit to allow for better light gathering. That means you will be able to get clearer photos in all light conditions. The camera uses a new Q mount for lenses. That also means you will need all new lenses though if you are moving from another camera system.

The camera has a bunch of user DSLR-esque shooting modes, and has a lightweight magnesium alloy body. The camera has a number of effects modes such as HDR integrated and a quick dual on the front for adjusting settings. It can shoot 1080p full HD video at 30fps and has a sensor shift shake reduction system with integrated dust reduction tech. It’s not cheap though. The camera will ship in early fall for $800 (USD) and the optional viewfinder is $249.95.
