Product Description

Product Description

The PENTAX Q7 digital lens-interchangeable camera has been developed as the top-of-the-line model of the PENTAX Q series, this new model is equipped with an image sensor much larger than those of its sister Q-series models for upgraded image quality, while retaining the super-compact, ultra-lightweight body that comfortably fits in the photographer's palm.

Launched as the flagship model of the popular PENTAX Q series, the PENTAX Q7 offers casual, carefree digital-SLR-quality photography to everyone. Thanks to a new 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor - the largest in the Q series - the Q7 delivers image quality that has been much improved from its sister models. It also offers a host of the advanced features expected in a top-of-the-series model, including high-sensitivity shooting at a top sensitivity of ISO 12800 (compared to ISO 6400 for the Q10); improved shake-reduction performance; reduced operation time lag at start-up and between exposures; and effortless, user-friendly operation. In addition, it features an array of creative tools such as Bokeh Control and Smart Effect, which assist the photographer in easily creating more personalized images

Major Features

Extra-large 1/1.7-inch image sensor - the largest in the Q series

Outstanding operability

Dependable SR mechanism

Featuring a latest gyro sensor, the Q7's upgraded SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism compensates camera shake by as much as three shutter steps. As a result, the Q7 produces sharp, blur-free images even under conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, or capturing landscapes in the twilight.

High-quality, Full HD movie recording, even during high-sensitivity shooting

The Q7 features a high-resolution 3.0-inch, 3:2-proportion LCD monitor with approximately 460,000 dots. The monitor has been treated with AR (Anti-Reflection) coating to offer sharp, bright images even under bright sunshine by effectively minimizing glare and reflection on the screen. Since its wide-view design makes it possible to view the image from 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, the user has a clear view of the image even when facing the monitor diagonally

The Q7's DR II (Dust Removal II) mechanism effectively prevents annoying dust spots from spoiling captured images, even after the user changes lenses out in the open. Like the PENTAX K-5 II and 645D digital SLR cameras, it employs a highly effective supersonic vibration mechanism, which vibrates the image sensor at high speed to shake the dust off its surface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Capable Little Camera 5 Feb 2014
Style Name:5-15mm Zoom Lens Kit|Colour Name:Black
It may look like a toy, or a child's camera, but don't let its diminutive size fool you. This is a very capable picture taking machine, with full manual control (if you want it) and RAW capture. In fact, I find it almost as featured as my DSLRs. The image quality is surprisingly good, by way of a 1/1.7" sensor. This is larger than the previous models in the range, and the picture quality is noticeably improved over the Q and Q10 - not that there is much wrong with these cameras. The big plus point of the Q system is its size: one can carry the body and several lenses and not notice they are there because of their small size and light weight. Other compact system cameras are now approaching the small size of the Q7, but when you add lenses to the mix, the Pentax is by far and away the most portable of the interchangeable lens camera systems available today.

A quick word about the lenses. Currently available are the 01 8.5mm f1.9 Standard Prime (approx 39mm 35mm equivalent); 02 5-15mm f2.8-4.5 Zoom (24-70mm Equiv); 06 15-45 mm f2.8 zoom (70-200 Equiv) and the 08 wide-angle zoom 3.8-5.9mm f3.7-4 ultra wide-angle zoom (17.5 - 27mm equiv). There are also a number designated as toy lenses for fun photography, including a fish-eye. I can only speak for the first three lenses, which I own, and I am perfectly happy with the image quality I get from them. Pentax also manufacture an adaptor with built-in shutter to attach its range of K-mount lenses on the Q7.

1.0 out of 5 stars a few menu languages are missing 30 May 2014
Style Name:5-15mm and 15-45mm Zoom Lens Kit| Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
It is not a big issue for most of the users in the UK, but be warned that the menu language does not include Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese.
Before I brought this, I had checked the Ricoh official UK website. it clear indicates that the above languages are included in the product sold in UK [...]
The package itself has multi-language descriptions including Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese, giving us the impression that those language are included in the display menu. Unfortunately it is NOT.
raised the issue to Amazon but no response.
