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.
Summary: I received the Pentax Q and saw it for the first time. Wow, it's so cute. I looks like a toy camera. It's even smaller than most point and shoot cameras in terms of the body size. Even with the lens, it's smaller than most cameras with its lens extended.
Get Firmware update, need prime lens, not for clumsy fingers or memories.

Summary: Update as of August 2014: Had problem with shutting down in combination dial setting and filters: BW(monochrome) and toy camera... the camera would shut down!!! The firmware update V1.14 fixed this. Thank You Pentax!!! Still a Great little camera! Cons: Small camera. Battery Life.
Summary: This camera isn't quite what I was looking for. It's stellar in compact size, but not quite as point and shoot ready in automatic as I thought. Every time I held the shutter half way for it to focus, half the time I would get a red box that signified it wasn't ready to take a picture.
Summary: for the price, just over $200, it is better than a point and shoot but I wouldn't pay more than that for it. Auto focus is funky. It works most of the time but not always. So for $200 yes, its a deal. The newer models may be an improvement but they are considerably higher in cost.
An interesting, but compromised, small camera. Read the pros and cons!

Summary: The idea of a compact system camera is to take the important internal bits of a DLSR and pack them into a smaller package. This is a small package. Heck, it's tiny really. With the lens off, it's a small, compact camera.
Summary: this review is written for the sake of those folk who are looking to buy this camera and are looking for clues/advice from reviews/reviewers. the q is one of many cameras l have tried/tested these past few years and my bottom line opinion is that your money is better spent on something else such as:...
Summary: Had this little thing for several months now so I feel i have 'run it in' so to speak and the one thing I can say for certain is that PQ in auto mode is awful. Since auto is what i spend most of my time using (since this camera is made for taking everywhere and snapping away with) this is a big...
