Nice Small Camera

Deffie, Amazon

  • Summary: Currently my favorite grab and carry with me camera. It's not the fastest, but it turns out surprisingly good results considering the sensor size. It's also amazingly small, pictures don't do it justice. The original Q here is still probably my favorite in the family with its all-metal construction, and is quite nice to use.

Even adapters for this camera are not that easy to find

Ferruccio, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: The only reason this does not get 5 stars is due to the limitations in speed from the sensor size, as well as the relative difficulty and rarity of lenses and attachments that come for this small size. Even adapters for this camera are not that easy to find, and Pentax-approved ones are quite expensive, especially for a camera of this size. However, this is, without a doubt, the best camera for a sensor of this size.

  • Summary: Had a lot of issues focusing it to take photos in the beginning. Bought it as a birthday present for my younger brother. Surprise/delight was replaced with frustration in no time. Not sure how it's worked out since.

The Original Pentax Q will be a classic someday

Michael Sullivan, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: The original Pentax Q will undoubtedly be considered one of the classic cameras someday. It is so tiny and yet is constructed with the care and precision of a fine watch. The magnesium body gives the camera a solid, high quality feel. Although the newer Q7 has a larger sensor and other enhancements the original, magnesium body Q remains the favorite among enthusiasts.

Love this little camera to bits!

Andrew Leong, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: Great camera for a great price! Yes, it's not the latest model, yes, it has a smaller sensor than most mirrorless cameras on the market. But guess what? It takes Great pictures. Pictures I wished I had taken with this highly pocketable camera when my regular K5 was too big to lug with me on hikes, or a late night dinner. I have given up trying to find the ultimate phone camera and now carry this with me everywhere.

Love It!

J, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: Still learning my way around it, but I love the compact size, the solid build quality, the overall comfortable feel of the camera in-hand, the effectiveness of the pop-up/retractable flash, the easy-to-follow menu layout. Don't understand why camera manufacturers (and users) feel they need so many in-camera filters and effects when there are a million programs/apps available to edit after you take a properly-exposed shot, but this seems to be the way of all cameras these...

Creative Little Guy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: I took this small camera for the first time on my business trip to Japan and use it during weekend off days. Outdoor picture quality during the day was excellent, not sure of its capability with low lighting at night. I believe the excellent picture quality is because of its superior lens (I have the 02 kit lens) since its sensor is quite small. I am very happy with the purchase and it will be a complement to my Nikon DSLR when I do more serious trips (vacations).

Absolutely fantastic

passat driver, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm glad I bought this camera. It's so lightweight, I can wear it around my neck and take it anywhere. It's a little slow in processing images, but the photos always turn out great. It's possibly the best camera purchase I've made in years.
