When it comes to the world of digital cameras, you can more or less say that it has been split into three different and distinct groups. The first would be the serious professionals, who would settle for nothing less than the best full frame DSLR shooters, while another group would be the extremely casual photographers who would most probably forget about bringing their point-and-shoot cameras simply because they prefer to make use of their smartphones. Last but not least would be those who have more than a passing interest in digital photography, but intend to bring things to the next level. The Pentax Q-S1 digital camera would cater for the last group in particular, where it delivers professional looking photos without bogging you down, and yet offers the flexibility of interchangeable lenses.
In fact, the Pentax Q-S1 prides itself in being one of the world’s smallest and lightest digital cameras that will feature an interchangeable lens system. It sports a new and refined look, in addition to the Smart Affect mode which will offer creative photo enhancing, and color variations from the current hottest fashion trends.
Other hardware features of the Pentax Q-S1 include a 12.4 megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor that is capable of delivering high-quality images, high-sensitivity shooting capability to a top sensitivity of ISO 12800, as well as a reliable shake-reduction system that is made possible thanks to a state-of-the-art gyro sensor. Not only that, budding shutterbugs will also be able to take advantage of different creative tools, including bokeh control and Smart Effect that will add the desired filters, through the simple turn of a dial.
Not only that, there will also be a color to order service for the Pentax Q-S1 digital camera, which will allow one to choose from 4 standard color combinations as well as another three dozen body and grip colors, making sure that it is going to be extremely difficult to find another Q-S1 like yours. Expect the Pentax Q-S1 to arrive at retailers nationwide this August for $499.95 a pop.
