Pentax Q “Lens Changing” Camera: The Smallest By Far

In the market for a new camera but not sure which one to opt for? A new edition has just entered onto the market which on looking at its specs, is pretty impressive, the Pentax Q. Just at the beginning of this month, we gave you news about a small Sony NEX-C3 camera on the way in August, which had the facility of an interchangeable lens, but the Pentax is even smaller.

Lets check out the specs for you! Dubbed the “world’s smallest and lightest digital interchangeable-lens camera system,” the new Pentax will fit into anybody’s pocket. Weighing in as Pocketlint reported at 200g and measuring at 98 x 57.5 x 31mm, which may well alter when the lens is changed (five to choose from), it beats the current K mount system. With an LCD monitor measuring at 3-inches along with 460k dots and a 170 degree viewing angle, the new Pentax Q will allow you to take images in different lighting.

In terms of what the Pentax Q’s specs will give you for your hard earned pennies, it will include a back illuminated 1/2.3-inch CMOS image sensor packing 12.4MPs with the ability to shoot RAW and JPEG. Along with this, the sensor benefits from an ISO range of 125 to 6400, along with the facility to shoot HD movies in 1080p at 30fps.

Dependant on what you want out of your camera, you will be able to choose from varying effects including Vintage Colour, Bold Monochrome, Water Colour, Vibrant Colour, other features to tempt you include, a Bokeh function, top shutter speed of 1/2000 second, mechanism to stop the device from shaking and so on.

Suggestion is that the new Pentax Q will release in September in a choice of black or white, but unfortunately no solid price has been given, this of which we will update you on when news comes through.

Are you a keen photographer? What are your thoughts on the new smaller Pentax Q? Tempted or is there another brand that you prefer to use?
