ThePentax Q-7 Hybrid ILC System Camera is one of the smallest mirrorless camerasystems available in the market. Imagine a point and shoot compact but with theability to change lenses. For those who love taking professional and highquality shots without carrying around a bulky digital SRL body, the Pentax Q-7is the ideal camera. For something so small, it packs a 12.4 effectivemegapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, Manual exposure modes, 3.0 inch LCD with 460,000 dotresolution, Full 1080 HD video, and Sensor-shift image stabilization. It’s gotall you need and more in a tiny body.
Its 12.4 effective megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor providesbeautiful, sharp and clear photos with vivid details and color reproduction.Images are processed quickly so you are able to go from one shot to anotherwithout lag. It can even handle 5 fps burst shooting at high resolution JPEG.
ISO and Auto-Focus
ISO is at 100-12800 on the Pentax Q-7, so photos in darkor low light settings shouldn’t be a problem. Images in low light and high ISOsettings are good with little grain and noise. Auto-focus works with ContrastDetect (sensor), Live View, Face Detection, and even in Tracking for movingsubjects and action shots.
The Sensor-shift Image stabilization gives you clear shotsand lessens motion blur caused by subtle movements on the camera. This is alsohelpful when you’re using telephoto lenses that are bigger than the camera bodyso it stays stable.
Full HD Videos
You can take Full 1080 HD video with the Pentax Q-7. Makehigh quality videos without feeling strained with huge video equipment. Videosare formatted at MPEG-4, H.264.
The Pentax Q Lens mount lets you use a wide array oflenses. From wide angle to portrait lenses, there’s one that can fit yourphotography style and needs.
View clear composition and photos through the 3.0 inch LCDwith 460,000 dot resolution. It’s a fixed, TFT color LCD monitor with ARcoating, capable of wide angle viewing and Live View.
