  • Summary: The big brother to the X10 is the X100 , which was released about a year earlier and got a lot of positive press. The X100 has an APS-C sized sensor, a fixed 23 mm lens, and a $1,200 price tag.

Pentax Q

PC Magazine
25 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The Pentax Q is the most compact interchangeable lens camera you can buy. But a small sensor that limits fine detail in images, slow start up and processing performance, and a high sticker price hold this small shooter back.
  • Pros: Sharp images. Excellent video quality. Good low light performance. Built-in flash. Silent operation.
  • Cons: Very expensive. Slow to start up and process images. Photos lack depth. Included lens doesn’t zoom.

Pentax Q

  • Summary: The Pentax Q is qute and definitely has the wow factor - it literally yells "buy me" when you first see it! The Q is a compact, capable and easy-to-use little camera. Its interchangeable lenses cover a good part of the most used range, from a fish-eye to a 100mm (equivalent) short telephoto lens.  It is beautifully crafted, a real nice piece of industrial design made from quality materials. The key question, though, is the image quality satisfactory?

  • Excerpt: Designed with a mount that's around two-thirds the size of Pentax's K-mount, the Pentax Q is compact in every sense of the word with its 98x31mm footprint. Without the physical space to accommodate a large sensor, the Q features a much smaller 1 /2.3in imaging chip that's the same size as that found in most compact cameras. With such a small sensor it means a 5.5x multiplication factor has to be applied to all the lenses in the Q range.

Pentax Q review

expertreviews.co.uk
21 September 2011
  • Excerpt: A compact system camera takes the guts of an SLR and stuffs them into a compact body. It's such an obviously good idea that it can only be a matter of time before all the big camera manufacturers get on board. Pentax is the latest to join the fold, but the Q – initially available exclusively from Jessops – is not at all what we expected. It really is tiny, weighing just 237g with its kit lens. Remove the lens and it's no bigger than a conventional compact camera.

Digitalkamera Pentax Q: Test Systemkamera

4 January 2012
  • Summary: Mit der Digitalkamera Pentax Q bringt der Kamerahersteller eine besonders kompakte Systemkamera auf den Markt. Im Inneren arbeitet – anders als bei der Konkurrenz – jedoch kein DSLR-Sensor, sondern ein Chip aus der Kompaktklasse. Lesen Sie im Test, welche Folgen dies für die Bildqualität hat.
