Pentax Q10, a powerful hybrid camera under RM2k
PARIS, Sept 16 — The Q10, Pentaxc’s latest compact camera with an interchangeable lens, is expected to hit retailers in mid-October, with prices starting at €499 (RM1,989). The latest generation of hybrid cameras produces results that are almost indistinct from the reflex models, and they come at much lower price points.
The Pentax Q10’s specs include a 12.4-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, ISO capabilities from 100 to 6.500, a stabilising system that detects vibrations, and an Auto Picture mode that automatically selects the right mode for a photograph.
The camera can be customized in nine different ways, and shutterbugs can add 19 different types of digital filters.It can capture videos in Full HD (1,920x1,080 pixels) at 30 frames per second.
The Pentax Q10 also includes a built-in pop-up flash, but users can add another one, and the sensor automatically gets rid of dust. The Pentax Q10 is the latest addition to an increasingly cut-throat hybrid market, where it will face Canon’s EOS M and Nikon’s One V1.
The camera will sell with a 5-15mm lens for €499. — AFP-Relaxnews
