5.0 out of 5 stars At this price, an essential buy, 15 Dec 2013
This review is from: Pentax Q10 Compact System Camera with 5-15mm Lens Kit - Black Body/Black Grip (12MP) 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)
I've loved the look of the Q since it came out, but at first release it was just overpriced. Now the price has come down, I've bought one. And I revise my earlier opinion of it being overpriced, it's that good. Now though, it's just a bargain.

It's pretty much a tiny, full-featured, SLR. I love my big SLR but it often gets left at home, or it's too much hassle to pull out of its bag, or it intimidates my friends to have me shove an enormous camera in their faces.

This little beauty really does everything my SLR does, except it fits in my pocket, it's a friendly size and is tremendous fun to use. You can use it as a point-and-shoot, complete with scene modes - or, you can go full manual, with control over everything. Spot-metering, trailing-curtain flash, bulb mode, all the things you can think of are actually there in this tiny TINY camera. Also, it's not all buried in obscure menus. Nearly everything is either accesable from a dedicated button, or from a quick menu.

Absoleutly brilliant. Camera geeks may turn their noses up at the small sensor size, or some other technical thing that no-one in the real world cares about, but for people who ARE in the real world - it's indispensable. Mine now goes everywhere with me.
