P entax is pleased to announce the launch of the Pentax Q7 digital interchangeable lens camera.

The Pentax Q7 makes digital-SLR-quality photography accessible to everyone, and thanks to a new 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, delivers much improved image quality. In addition, the camera also offers a host of advanced features expected in a top-of-the-range model, such as; high-sensitivity shooting, improved shake-reduction performance and effortless, user-friendly operation.

Pentax Q7 camera


Pentax Q7 image sensor

The new Pentax Q7 also features an array of creative tools such as Bokeh Control and Smart Effect, which assist the photographer in easily creating personalised images. Thanks to a new 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, the Pentax Q7 boasts the finest image quality in the Q series. By coupling this image sensor with the state-of-the-art Q ENGINE high-speed imaging engine, the Q7 not only offers high-sensitivity shooting at an ISO 12800 and delivers beautiful images with faithful reproduction of gradation and texture, it also minimises annoying noise effectively at all ISO sensitivity levels.

Autofocus of the Pentax Q7 camera

Its autofocus accuracy during low-illumination shooting has also been improved, assuring pinpoint focus on the subject even at the faintest light level of EV 0. Because of its larger sensor, the angle of view for the Pentax Q7 is wider than that of its sister models, even when the same lens is mounted. When the 02 Standard Zoom lens is mounted, for instance, the angle of view is 23mm to 69mm in the 35mm format (compared to 27.5mm to 83mm for the Q10). Likewise, when the Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses is used with the Pentax Q7, the focal length of the mounted lens is extended by approximately 4.6 times (compared to approximately 5.5 times for the Q10).
