Pentax just launched the Q camera, the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera.  It is so small yet it’s a full featured camera with DSLR features.  Pentax used a newly designed PENTAX Q-mount lens system for the Q.  Lenses for the Q include prime, zoom and fish-eye.

The mirrorless Pentax Q uses a 12.4 megapixel backlit 1/2.3-inch CMOS image sensor. The Q can do 125-6400 ISO and shoots on several modes such as Program, Aperture/Shutter Priority, and Metered Manual, Bokeh Control, Smart Effects and HDR.  Pentax Q is also able to record 1080 Full HD at 30fps which you can view on an HD screen via an HDMI connector.

Pentax managed to fit a 3-inch LCD display in to the Q.  It also has a customizable Quick Dial, built-in pop-up flash, and a Dust Removal II mechanism.  To protect what’s inside the camera, Pentax opted for a lightweight, scratch resistant magnesium alloy body.

The Pentax Q is being offered in white and black colors and comes with a standard prime lens when purchased.  The Q will be released around September of this year and price is pegged at $800.
