Pentax’s latest addition to their range of Q shooters would be the Pentax Q10, which is a mini-sized successor to the Q mirrorless camera. Capable of capturing images in 12.4-megapixels, the CMOS sensor size holds true at 1/2.3-inches, which is similar in dimensions as the Q as well as the slew of the other cameras from its rivals that flood the market. This would mean the Pentax Q10 will enable the Q family to continue being flagged as “the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera system.” We are rather cautious of superlative statements, so anyone else out there who begs to differ, do leave a comment right below. Of course, those who are interested to see more of the Pentax Q10 can check out the photo gallery in the extended post in addition to other specifications listed.
Additional hardware specifications and features of the Pentax Q10 include a 3″ LCD display, RAW mode support, an ISO range of 100-6400, 1080p HD video recording capability, a faster autofocus, an integrated pop-up flash which will appeal to some, built-in HDR, 5fps continuous shooting, manual exposure modes, and in-camera image stabilization. At first glance, this might look similar to the Q, although there were improvements incorporated into the grip so that the Q10 ends up as more ergonomic of the two.
We are looking at silver, black and red shades for the Pentax Q10 which will retail for $600 when it arrives next month. [Press Release]
