Launched as the latest model of the PENTAX Q series, offering casual, carefree digital-SLR-quality photography to everyone, the PENTAX Q10 was developed based on the popular PENTAX Q (launched in August 2011) - the worlds smallest, lightest digital lens-interchangeable camera. Thanks to a newly adopted CMOS image sensor and an upgraded algorithm, it delivers much-improved basic performance, such as higher-quality images and faster AF operation.
At the same time, it retains all the creative features of its predecessor - including the bokeh control function to create a defocused effect typical of an SLR camera, and the Smart Effect modes to apply various filters with a simple turn of the dial - allowing the photographer to produce more personalized images with minimal effort.
While its overall exterior design closely resembles the PENTAX Q, which was designed as a miniaturized version of a full-scale digital SLR camera, the PENTAX Q10 has added several upgrades in its body design, such as a grip assuring more stable hold of the camera, to improve operability and manoeuvrability.
High-resolution, wide-view 3.0-inch color LCD monitor with approx. 460,000 dots.
Long battery life through incorporation of power-efficient components such as a new image sensor.
Remote control receptors on front and back panels.
