The Pentax Q10 Compact Digital Camera with 5-15mm Lens - Available for pre-order.


The Pentax Q10 Compact Digital Interchangeable Lens Camera with 5-15mm Lens offers versatility without the bulk and weight of a DSLR. At 4.0 x 2.3 x 1.3" (10.2 x 5.8 x 3.3 cm) and a mere 6.35 oz (180 g), it is among the world's smallest and lightest interchangeable lens cameras. The Q10 has a 12.4MP backlit 1/2.3" CMOS sensor, which captures low-noise images even at high levels of sensitivity for 12-bit DNG RAW and JPEG file formats. This sensor and the AF algorithm have been upgraded in order to provide faster, more accurate autofocusing. The camera is compatible with the PENTAX Q-mount lens system, which encompasses prime, zoom, fisheye and other types of lenses.

A 5-15mm (35mm equivalent: 27.5-83mm) 3x normal-range zoom lens is included, for capturing wide-angle shots, portraits, and everything in between. The maximum aperture ranges from a fast f/2.8 for low-light shots to f/4.5. Pentax's lens coating produces well-defined, high contrast images with minimal flare. The Neutral Density (ND) filter lets you use a wide aperture in bright environments where a narrow aperture would normally be required.

The Pentax Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses permits the use of Pentax K-mount lenses on Pentax Q-series cameras. This adapter provides an effective increase in focal length by 5.5x, making it ideal for telephoto lens applications. The built-in mechanical shutter helps to prevent rolling shutter distortion when working with moving subjects and features a shutter speed range from 1/1000 to 30 sec. Also helping to prevent the effects of camera movement, applicable lens focal length information can be input in order to gain the benefits of in-camera Shake Reduction.
