Pentax Q10

PC Magazine
14 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Pentax Q10 is a tiny interchangeable lens camera with a point-and-shoot sized sensor, but it doesn't perform as well as other cameras in its price range.
  • Pros: Very compact. Excellent access to manual controls. Raw shooting support.
  • Cons: Sluggish. Kit lens is soft at maximum zoom. Images lack detail at very high ISOs. No EVF option.

  • Summary: Overall, while the Pentax Q10 has its control-to-size ratio to recommend it, and a number of positive aspects with its design, it’s sorely let down by inconsistent and often lacklustre image quality.
  • Pros: Light weight; Plenty of physical controls; Decent flash performance
  • Cons: Some fiddly controls; Image quality; AF could be faster

  • Excerpt: The PentaxQ10 is probably the smallest removable lens camera I have ever reviewed. It is smaller than most digital cameras but is still a very powerful unit that gives rather good JPG or an option to save your images in RAW format.

Pentax Q10 review

TechRadar UK
25 January 2013
  • Summary: The world's smallest, lightest CSC
  • Pros: Reasonable price, Compact size, Good build, Accepts interchangeable lenses, Novel built-in flash, The Pentax Q10 holds its own well against high-end compact cameras. It is well built, offers plenty of features and is reasonably priced too. As the Q-series lens lineup is growing, and a K-mount len...
  • Cons: No dedicated video button, Heavy-handed noise reduction, Some controls are fiddly, Real world image quality isn't up to that of similarly priced mirrorless cameras sporting larger sensors. Heavy-handed noise reduction can blur fine detail, and the output from the automatic HDR mode can look very ...
