PentaxPentax Q10 camera features : Thanks to the incorporation of a newly designed back-illuminated CMOS sensor with high sensitivity and low-noise characteristics, the Pentax Q10 delivers high resolution pictures with 12.4 megapixels, and a top sensitivity of ISO 6400. The combination of a performance imaging engine, and exclusively designed Pentax Q-mount lenses, enables the Pentax Q10 to provide clear, high contrast pictures rich in gradation and texture, even at the edges. With high sensitivity noise minimized, the photographer can use the entire sensitivity range from ISO100 to the highest ISO6400 for sharp, clear pictures. The photographer can take advantage of the built-in HDR function, which produces one composite photo from multiple images.

Pentax Q10 features
By assigning the creative 'Smart Effect' modus to the easy-to-access Quick Dial positioned on the camera’s front panel, the photographer can effortlessly add the desired finishing touch to an image, while previewing the effect on the camera’s 3-inch LCD monitor. With four positions on the Quick Dial, the photographer can assign four of their favorite picture effects from the nine Smart Effect modes in advance. In order to customize the Pentax Q10 to accommodate specific shooting styles and user preferences, the user can also assign other preferences - such as a custom image setting or a digital filter or an aspect ratio setting - to this dial.


Full HD video recording with the Q10
The Pentax Q10 mirrorless camera comes equipped with a Full HD movie capture function employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high quality, extended video clips (1920x1080 pixels) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. The user can also take advantage of the advanced image processing tools like the Smart Effect modes and other in-body movie editing tools during movie shooting. With a push of a button, the Pentax Q10 camera even offers autofocus operation during movie shooting. The Q10 also provides a micro-HDMI terminal, which allows the user to simultaneously output both Full HD video clips and sound to external devices via a single terminal.

Pentax Auto Picture and Scene modes
The Pentax Q10 system camera features the original Pentax Auto Picture mode, which automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode from such options as Portrait, Macro and Landscape for a given subject or scene, then optimizes all affecting parameters, such as shutter speed, aperture, saturation, white balance, contrast and sharpness. It also provides 21 Scene modes including Night Scene Portrait, Pet and Backlight Silhouette, allowing even an inexperienced photographer to choose the best exposure mode for a complicated scene by simply choosing an appropriate icon on the LCD screen.

Pentax Q10 camera features
The new Pentax Q10 digital camera comes with a built-in auto flash (guide number 7 at ISO 200/m). The user is able to use it at the default position, or raise it to the pop-up position with simple operation to widen its discharge angle to cover a 28mm angle of view. The Pentax Dust Removal II mechanism prevents dust spots from degrading captured images after the user changes lenses out in the open. Like the Pentax K-5 II, the Q10 incorporates a highly effective supersonic vibration mechanism, which vibrates the image sensor at high speed to shake the dust off its surface.


Pentax Q10 price
The Q10 will be offered in a Red or Silver Kit including the Pentax 02 zoom lens at a suggested retail price of $599,- USD. The system camera will be available at retail outlets nationwide and online in October 2012.
