Pentax Q Review

What Digital Camera
3 December 2011
  • Summary: At £600 with the 8.5mm (47mm equivalent) f/1.9 prime lens, the Pentax Q certainly isn’t cheap. No doubt that a huge amount of R&D and development costs will have gone into the system, but perhaps not enough of the former to realise that an accessible price-point would have gone a long way in helping...
  • Pros: Small design, sharp & low noise images at ISO 125-400 settings, long lenses small in size, faster flash sync due to leaf shutter lenses (limited to 1/250th sec with external flash however)
  • Cons: Poor LCD screen, small sensor size means lack of shallow depth of field control, BC (Bokeh Control) mode is flawed and poor, function dial placed awkwardly by lens, not possible to fit an EVF, slow Raw shooting due to small buffer, expensive

Pentax Q

MacWorld
27 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Being as quick in its responses as a mid-range DSLR, the Pentax Q is more than a curio and we hope, with perhaps larger sensors in subsequent models, it will be the diminutive shape of things to come for compact system cameras.
  • Pros: Tiny body yet still sports a rugged-feel build; fun to use; fits conveniently in a pocket if the lens is removed; fast response times
  • Cons: Some may find the rear controls small and fiddly; battery life could be boosted; audio on video clips is mono only

Pentax Q review

Amateur Photographer
29 October 2011
  • Summary: No one can deny that the Pentax Q adds a little colour to the market. Its main talking points will always be its size, for reasons good and bad. The current ‘smallest interchangeable-lens camera' uses a much smaller sensor, but this is central to its being - compact size and compact lenses (and the...

Pentax Q

27 October 2011
  • Summary: The Pentax Q may look like a toy camera at first glance, but it actually proves to be a lot more full featured and intuitive to use in practice. Compact-like image quality and a sky-high price tag, however, combine to seriously detract from what is otherwise a surprisingly well built and enjoyable...

Pentax Q

Pocket Lint
4 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Unique isn’t a word that should be used lightly, but the Pentax Q more than fits the bill. However, amid a competitive Compact System Camera market it fails to encapsulate true DSLR-like quality in a compact body.
  • Pros: It’s super-small, better than many high-end compact cameras
  • Cons: Small sensor limits depth of field control, stiff dials, awkward layout, expensive

Pentax Q Compact Mirrorless Review

ePHOTOzine
16 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Tested with the new Samsung Class 10 memory card . The Pentax Q performs much like a compact camera with a CMOS sensor, with high speed shooting, but generally slowish shot to shot time otherwise. Shutter response is excellent, but focus is a little slow. Switch on time is also slow.

Liten systemkamera

Bild och Ljud
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Man måste gnugga sig i ögonen när man ser Pentax Q. Här är den minsta systemkameran sedan Pentax 110 från 1979.
  • Pros: Hög bildkvalitet. Bra videokvalitet Överskådlig skötsel. Ytterst kompakt.
  • Cons: Svag blixt Glatt grepp. Monoljud i video.

Pentax Q

pcmag.ru
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Pentax Q — самая компактная камера со сменной оптикой, которую можно купить. Но сенсор изображения маловат, число мелких деталей на фото явно недостаточно. Медленный запуск и невысокая скорость, а также высокая цена — серьезные недостатки этой камеры.
  • Pros: Четкие изображения. Отличное качество видео. Хорошее качество съемки в условиях низкой освещенности. Встроенная вспышка. Бесшумная работа.
  • Cons: Высокая цена. Медленно запускается и обрабатывает изображения. Изображениям не хватает глубины. Кит-объектив с фиксированным фокусным расстоянием.
