Pentax Imaging Company has announced the Pentax Q the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera. The Q offers the versatility and precision of an advanced DSLR in a body that is significantly smaller than every other digital ILC body available on the market today.
The camera’s tiny size, lightweight design, and superior image quality are made possible by an innovative Pentax-developed imaging system. With a high-resolution 12.4 megapixel, 1/2.3 inch CMOS image sensor, the Q carves out an entirely new camera category that extends beyond traditional digital compact, APS-C or 4/3 digital cameras. The backlit sensor is a highly efficient light-gathering instrument that produces very little noise at high sensitivity levels particularly in low light settings.
Further, the new Q lens mount is a perfect match with the new sensor and every interchangeable Q lens is designed for more advanced image quality than may be found on traditional compact digital cameras. This innovative Pentax design is the foundation of the Q’s position as the world’s smallest, lightest ILC system with superior image quality.
