The mint and brown Pentax Q10 Compact Mirrorless Camera with 5-15mm Lens offers versatility without the bulk and weight of a DSLR. At 4.0 x 2.3 x 1.3" (10.2 x 5.8 x 3.3 cm) and a mere 6.35 oz (180 g), it is among the world's smallest and lightest interchangeable lens cameras. The Q10 has a 12.4MP backlit 1/2.3" CMOS sensor, which captures low-noise images even at high levels of sensitivity for 12-bit DNG RAW and JPEG file formats. This sensor and the AF algorithm have been upgraded in order to provide faster, more accurate autofocusing. The camera is compatible with the PENTAX Q-mount lens system, which encompasses prime, zoom, fisheye and other types of lenses.

A 5-15mm (35mm equivalent: 27.5-83mm) 3x normal-range zoom lens is included, for capturing wide-angle shots, portraits, and everything in between. The maximum aperture ranges from a fast f/2.8 for low-light shots to f/4.5. Pentax's lens coating produces well-defined, high contrast images with minimal flare. The Neutral Density (ND) filter lets you use a wide aperture in bright environments where a narrow aperture would normally be required.

The camera's large 3.0" (7.6 cm) LCD monitor features an HVGA resolution of 460,000 pixels and provides a wide viewing angle for framing and playback. Capture full HD 1080p video at 30 frames per second in H.264 compression format. A built-in micro HDMI port enables you to view your movies on an HDTV.

The integrated pop-up flash has an effective range of up to 23' (7.0 m) at ISO 200. Sensor-shift Shake Reduction stabilizes images for clear, blur-free quality, even in low-light conditions. The camera is also equipped with the DRII Dust Reduction system.

Benefit from traditional DSLR shooting modes, such as P (Program), Av (Aperture priority), Tv (Shutter priority), and M (Manual). You can select automatic modes such as Auto Picture and Scene to take the guesswork out of image capture, leaving the camera in charge of choosing the best settings for the situation. In continuous shooting mode, capture up to 5 fps for fast-action sequences. Smart Effects modes let you apply various creative effects to your images.

Perform powerful, flexible RAW file processing via the included SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3 software. In-camera RAW image development is supported, as well.
