While the race to create the world’s smallest camera
has already been won. (So far.) The Pentax Q presents a much more appealing, only slightly bulkier option. Not only is it a totally fetch keychain, it’s a digital SLR with interchangeable lenses.
Approximately 10cm wide and weighting just 200 grams, the Q offers 12.4 megapixel photos, a proper LCD display, and the sort of physical controls you would expect from its much bigger, much more expensive bro – the Pentax 645D. But what really sets it apart from the competition is the interchangeable lenses. Pentax has released five initial models, divided between the High Performance Series and Unique Series. They all feature manual focus.
We could start listing the various other tech specs at this point, but we think you get the idea. The Pentax Q has the sort of features you would expect in a proper DSLR scaled down to a fit-in-your-pocket size. It’s selling for $800.
