The silver Q7 Compact Mirrorless Camera with 5-15mm and 15-45mm Lenses from Pentax features an upgraded 12.4MP 1/1.7" Backlit CMOS sensor. It produces low-noise images even at high ISO sensitivities (up to 12800) in both JPEG and 12-bit RAW formats. It is directly compatible with Pentax Q-mount lenses including the Pentax 02 Standard 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 Zoom lens and the Pentax 06 Telephoto 15-45mm f/2.8 Zoom lens with which it is bundled here.
With fast autofocus, shutter speeds up to 1/2000s and continuous shooting rates of 5 fps at full resolution, the Q7 can capture quick action; and its numerous scene modes, assistive and creative features, and in-camera shift-sensor shake reduction allow you to easily capture the tough shots. Full manual exposure as well as Aperture and Shutter Priority modes enable true image control and a built-in pop-up flash provides extra light when the need calls. A hot shoe mount for an external flash or optional viewfinder is also available.
Full HD 1080p video capture at 24 and 30 fps is supported, and a built-in micro HDMI port enables you to view your movies on an HDTV. Movie mode also features a digital filter to add effects to your images and offers interval shooting for time lapse videos. A 3.0" LCD monitor with 460k-dot resolution provides image composition and playback. Images are stored on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards and the camera is compatible with Eye-Fi memory cards for easy transfer to Wi-Fi enabled devices.
The included Pentax 02 Standard 5-15mm Zoom lens provides the 35mm focal length equivalent of a 23-69mm lens incorporating wide angle to short telephoto lengths. It is ideal as an everyday lens not simply due to its versatility but because it offers a compact and lightweight form factor. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide-angle end is effective in low light situations and is able to produce a shallow depth of field. Four extra-low dispersion aspherical lens elements keep chromatic aberrations to a minimum throughout its zoom range and Pentax's exclusive lens coating technology reduces flare and helps to produce sharp, high contrast images. An integrated neutral density filter provides 2-stops of light reduction for enhanced exposure control when using wide apertures in bright light.
For comprehensive coverage, the Pentax 06 Telephoto 15-45mm f/2.8 zoom lens picks up where the 5-15mm lens leaves off and provides telephoto zoom focal lengths equivalent to 69-207mm in the 35mm format. With its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture you can utilize fast shutter speeds in low light and at long telephoto lengths. The Quick-Shift focus system allows instant switching from auto to manual focus combining the two systems for optimal performance. Two extra-low dispersion lens elements and one super low dispersion element reduce aberrations for sharp, color-accurate images. Super Protect (SP) lens coating resists dust and dirt, and the front end of the lens can be retracted when not in use to safeguard it from damage and make it more compact for transport.
