Pentax Q interchangeable lens camera will be announced in August

PENTAX Q

I received some information from Europe about the second interchangeable lens camera called Pentax Q, expected to be announced in August 2011. Those are the specs:

  • 12MP backlit sensor
  • HD movie recording (720p)
  • RAW capabilities
  • Available in tow color: black and white
  • Vary small and compact in size
  • Price around 700 EUR
  • Several lenses will be announced including a fisheye lens

Pentax is planing to introduce two new small cameras with interchangeable lenses this summer: the previously rumored Pentax NC-1 mirrorless camera and a new digital version of the Pentax Auto 110 (not clear if they will keep the mirror inside or will make it mirrorless like the NC-1). I also want to remind you about this comment made by a Pentax representative few months ago:

“A company representative Anton Melnikov commented on plans to produce mirrorless Pentax cameras. The first camera based on APS-C sensor will be released until September this year. It is based on the K bayonet and maintains the proper optics Pentax, among whom are many of compact lenses, pancakes. It is worth noting that this is just a guess, and for certain information about plans for new models is not unknown, the exact specifications. Second camera is a compact camera with interchangeable lenses and the matrix 1/2,33 inches.”
