    The Pentax Q is the smallest, lightest and interchangeable lens camera in the world. The body has been made of magnesium-alloy which gives an elegant, high-quality texture to the compact, lightweight camera body while improving its durability.


    This is small enough to fit in your palm. It has a complete aperture and shutter control and it has an innovative 12.4 megapixel sensor with an advanced backlit design. You can choose your interchangeable lenses and add external options such as shoe-mounted viewfinder, lens hoods and filters. You can capture even the fastest action with a 5-frame per second continuous shooting mode, ideal for sporting events, children at play or any fast action situation. You can also explore creative video effects through the use of custom image modes, digital video filters and interval shooting or select from a variety of Q lenses to realize your perfect artistic vision.


    For those who are just beginning as shooters, you will be able to appreciate the cameras sporting lightweight and scratch resistant magnesium alloy body, although you might not be able to avoid sometimes that something happens accidentally, but you won’t have to worry about dents or scratches because it is extremely compact and durable enough. Those who are considered expert photographers will be able to enjoy this camera’s ability to capture stabilized, blur and dust free images. Being expert photographers there’s nothing to be worried about on how you will be able to do shooting fast moving subjects such as swimming competition, soccer games, horse race and a lot more as this camera has a 5-frame per second (FPS)continuous shooting mode which is ideal to any fast action situation.


    Casual shooters will be able to appreciate the camera’s ability to capture amazingly sharp images of different exposures since they might be able to do it even in the dark or bright places. They would all agree by saying that this is a fantastic camera even for street photography. They don’t even need to worry if there are street children who would touch it and wanted to be taken with pictures since this camera is ideal for children at a play. This camera just fits into your pocket and you can take it anywhere without being bothered that this camera will be snatched from you.


    Many people will be truly inspired to use this camera as they could review all their captured images and videos. It’s just an inspiring camera for them to shoot with and the speed of operation is good because they have the freedom to experiment more than usual. They could even choose from a selection of prime, zoom, fisheye lenses and more to suit just about any photographic need. In addition to that, this camera has different Smart Effect modes such as like a Vintage Color which produces a toy-camera-like effect with a choice of several different finishing touches. On the other way around, there is also a so called Water Color which creates a watercolor-like finishing touch and not excluding the Vibrant Color Enhance which creates a flowery atmosphere with slightly enhanced contrast.
