WOW!!!! Excellent results so far. Resolution and detail amazing! Very easy to get going and use, but the Manual is so comprehensive it'll take some time to digest it all. Truly amazing magnification on playback.
I especially like the 'E- Dial' facility to store and retrieve settings ( such as monochrome ). It will save a lot of time I'm sure.
Macro pics of flowers and insects are superb.
GREAT BUY ( even if the price did drop by another Tenner a week later! )
Would recommend a spare battery and a good case.

Purchased as a Christmas present for my son, who has been borrowing my Fuji X100S too frequently for my liking. This was sold at an extremely attractive price by Amazon, and the rating reflects my purchase price (about £220, if I recall correctly). At the original £450 or so it would probably be a 3* review as the competition at £450 is extremely strong from full-sized SLRs.

The Q10 received lukewarm reviews at the time of launch in the press, mainly because it was priced alongside some great DSLRs with APS-C sensors, and with its smaller sensor it just couldn't compete on ultimate image quality. Let's get this part out of the way: the X100S takes better pictures, and when blown up large enough, the difference shows. That Fuji is nearly four times the price I paid for this Pentax though. Against compacts and Smartphones, which are the more natural competitors at this price it is no contest: the Pentax blows them away.

The Q10 and supplied lens (which is roughly equivalent to a 24-70mm zoom lens) are of the usual excellent Pentax build quality. This is a very well built camera that should give many years of service. The control system is basically the same as a DSLR, just smaller. This works perfectly for my son, but if you have fat fingers it may be a bit fiddly.

The rear screen has good resolution, and is easy to view in all but the very brightest sunlight.

Photos are very creditable. Softer and with reduced detail compared to my X100S, and low light performance is a long way behind the outstanding Fuji. Compared to most of the compact competition, however, the results are very good.

At £220, this is a steal.

Paid way too much for this small camera, and did not come up to expectation against my Fuji.
Was really disappointed, because the write-up in the advertising looked so good and promising.
Real pity of good money spend. I guess Pentax did not do itself any favours with the Q10

so cute, takes nice pics, easy to navigate. Wish it came with SD card as I was desperate to try it straight away. Definitely get a case - its so nice you wont want it getting tumbled round in your bag with your packed lunch....

Fantastic camera. What it packs into such a small package is amazing. Was not sure about this - very different to the kind of camera's I normally use, but this is brilliant. Portable, durable, good quality images. Great Buy.

A great little camera it takes good clear pictures and fits in a jacket pocket and is much easier to carry than a dslr I would have given five stars but it is a bit too small and the buttons are easy to press by mistake

An excellent little camera for the price. Lots of things to play with. Slowly learning them. A comprehensive English manual comes with the camera. One thing that I hadn't expected was that if you want monochrome you have to take the photo and then edit it in playback.

Very small..takes nice images..at this price is much better than a normal compact camera even if you never change the lens.
And its a very tactile piece of kit.
