Buy-n-Shoot.com

Pentax Q10 Review

What Digital Camera
17 March 2013
  • 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. Its appeal is confusing when, for around the same money, you can buy an enthusiast compact camera with a larger sensor and zoom lens which will deliver better image quality.

  • Conclusion: Those looking for a quirky alternative to the current crop of compact system cameras, with portability being their main concern, may be well served by the Pentax Q10, so long as you're well aware of its strengths, and its weaknesses.

Pentax Q10

PC Magazine
17 December 2012
  • 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.

Pentax Q10

PhotographyBLOG
19 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Pentax Q10 is an incredibly small interchangeable lens camera by current standards, measuring just 58 (H) x 102mm (W) x 33.5mm (D) (marginally bigger than the original Pentax Q model) and weighing only 180g body only. You really do need to see it in the flesh though to appreciate how tiny the Q10 actually is - at first glance it looks rather like one of the company's DSLRs that has been shrunk in the wash on too hot a cycle.

Pentax Q10

TechRadar UK
25 January 2013
  • Conclusion: When compared to advanced compact cameras, the Pentax Q10 has a lot going for it. Image quality falls short of cameras equipped with a larger sensor. This camera is better suited to those who value compactness above all else. Those looking for a quirky alternative to the current crop of compact system cameras, with portability being their main concern, may be well served by the Pentax Q10, so long as you're well aware of its strengths, and its weaknesses.

Pentax Q10 pictures and hands-on

Pocket Lint
19 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Pentax Q is an ultra-small interchangeable lens camera, and it's just about to get an update in the form of the Pentax Q10. Shown on the Pentax stand at Photokina 2012 - here snapped in a dashing red colour finish - the first thing that struck us about the Q10 is that it's bigger than its predecessor . So the smallest compact system camera just got slightly larger. How odd.
