With a new refined look, Smart Affect mode for creative photo enhancing, and colour variations from today’s hottest fashion trends, the Q-S1 is an ideal everyday camera for the style-minded looking for the portability of a compact and added benefits of interchangeable lenses.

“Along with its stylish, petite body, this new model offers impressive specifications. The Pentax Q-S1 is an ideal everyday camera for photographers of all levels, complete with an entire system of 8 lenses designed for on-the-go fun” said Jim Malcolm, Executive Vice President of Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation.

The Pentax Q-S1 is the latest addition to the popular Pemtax Q series of compact-sized, interchangeable-lens digital cameras. The Q-S1 camera is equipped with a wide range of features to make photography more enjoyable, including a 12.4 megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor to deliver high-quality images, high-sensitivity shooting to a top sensitivity of ISO 12800, and a reliable shake-reduction system using a state-of-the-art gyro sensor. It also provides a variety of creative tools, such as bokeh control and Smart Effect to add the desired filters with just a simple turn of a dial. The Pentax Q-S1 creates more personalized, creative images easily and beautifully.
