Q-10 Hybrid ILC System Camera with 5-15mm lens is built around a 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor producing an effective 12.4 megapixel. A 3” LCD monitor with a 460,000 dots resolution, built-in retractable flash, sensor-shift type image stabilization system, full HD video capability and an ISO sensitivity of 100-6400 rounds off the main features of this ILC. The kit lens offers a 5-15mm focal length range.

COMPACT PORTABILITY, LIFE-SIZE CAPABILITY

Portability meets capability with the introduction of the Q10 to the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens system. Featuring exceptional image quality and an upgraded auto focus system and the Q10 will capture detailed, blur and dust free images all while comfortably fitting in your pocket. With the Q, you no longer need to sacrifice capability for portability.

12.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

Enjoy exceptional image quality with the improved 12.4 megapixels 1/2.3 inch backlit CMOS image sensor. Capable of producing 12 bit DNG RAW and JPG images, the backlit CMOS sensor is a highly efficient light-gathering instrument designed specifically to produce very low noise at high levels of sensitivity.

Sensor-Shift Shake Reduction

Capture stabilized, blur and dust free images even in low lighting courtesy of the Q10’s sensor-shift Shake Reduction system with integrated DRII Dust Reduction. Body-based Shake Reduction operates independently of the Q10’s lenses, allowing the same level of stabilization regardless of lens selection.

Customized Quick Dial

Conveniently choose from a variety of creative modes, Smart Effect options, or camera settings to assign to the Q10’s Quick Dial located on the front of the camera. Easily customize the setting or effect using the Quick Dial’s 4 positions, allowing you to concentrate on photography without having to explore the camera’s menu system.

Built-In Popup Flash

The Q10’s built-in popup flash adds the perfect amount of extra light to an image, while its high extension naturally reduces the red-eye effect common to compact cameras. The Q10’s flash is effective to 23 feet at 200 ISO, and covers a wide angle 28 degree field of view.

World’s Smallest and Lightest Interchangeable Lens System

The Q10 with its stylish design, bold color options and compact size adds to the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens system.

Fast Autofocus

An upgraded auto focus algorithm and image sensor contribute to faster and more accurate auto focus performance than previous models.

HDR Capture

In-camera HDR capture mode shoots 3 images of varying exposures, blending them to bring out the details in even the darkest shadows and brightest highlights of extreme contrast shots.

3 Inch LCD Monitor and fast capture

Easily capture or review images and video using the Q10’s large 3 inch LCD monitor. The high quality LCD features HVGA resolution with 460,000 dots, as well as viewing angles up to 170 degrees horizontally and vertically.

Bokeh Control

Enjoy effortless bokeh control with the Q10’s bokeh control filter. Traditionally controlled through a DSLR lens’s aperture, bokeh is the out of focus portion of the background that helps to emphasize the subject, drawing the viewer’s eyes to the most important part of the photo. The Q10 assists the experienced and casual photographer alike by offering a fine degree of extra control over image bokeh via an in-camera filter operation.

User Modes for Creativity

Powerful USER modes allow the creative photographer to save a series of favorite camera settings, filters, and custom image modes for instant reuse.

HDMI Port

A built-in micro HDMI port is perfect for outputting high resolution images and video, with sound, to modern HDTVs.

RAW File Processing

The Q10 includes SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3 software for powerful and flexible RAW file processing. In-camera RAW image development is also supported.

Q Mount Lens System

The Q10 accepts the PENTAX Q-mount lens system for convenient interchangeability with a variety of specialty Q lenses. Choose from a selection of prime, zoom, fisheye lenses, and more to suit just about any photographic need.

Traditional DSLR Modes

Experienced photographers will enjoy the power and flexibility of traditional DSLR shooting modes such as Program, Aperture/Shutter Priority, and Metered Manual exposure control. Yet casual shooters will appreciate the highly convenient automatic modes such as the set-it-and-forget-it PENTAX Auto Picture and 21 scene modes

1080p HD Video

Shoot high quality motion video with stunning full 1080p HD clarity at 30 frames per second. The Q10 efficiently processes the full HD video using high quality h.264 compression for superior color and detail. Explore creative video effects through the use of custom image modes, digital video filters, and interval shooting; or select from a variety of Q-mount lenses to realize your perfect artistic vision.

5 FPS

Capture even the fastest action with five frames per second continuous shooting mode, ideal for sporting events, children at play, or any fast action situation.

Smart Effects Mode

Smart Effects modes enhance digital photography by applying a series of effects to images to achieve high quality finishing. Brilliant Color, Vintage Color, Warm Fade, Bold Monochrome, and Water Color are just some of the Smart Effects available, which can also be assigned to the Q10’s Quick Dial.

1/2000 to 30 Second Shutter Speeds

Shutter speeds range from 1/2000 to 30 seconds, perfect for freezing fast action or capturing long nighttime exposures. Bulb mode adds flexibility for low light photography and motion effects.

SD, SDHC, SDXC compatible

The Q10 is compatible with the latest generation SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards for ultra-high capacity storage as well as outstanding image file portability.

External Viewfinder Available for Purchase

Compose images and video either with the Q10’s LCD monitor or using a shoe-mounted viewfinder attachment available as an optional accessory for the 01 Prime Lens. The External Viewfinder O-VF1 makes an excellent accessory to the Q10, offering outstanding compositional framing, even in the brightest sunlight where viewing an LCD screen is traditionally a challenge.
