Pentax Q7 pictures leaked! To be announced on July 5.

Digicaminfo posted the images of the new Pentax Q7 camera. As you can see there is Black, Silver and Yellow version. The new camera that will be announced on July 5 and as previously posted it has a new larger 1/1.7 type sensor (larger than the other Q models!).

This is the same sensor size of the Panasonic LX and Samsung EX series (both with fixed lens). The interesting thing is that all Q lenses are able to cover the larger sensor size. Good news for all current Q lens owners!

    what is that small rectangular thing behind the flange? Sensor, really?=D

  • luca.vascon

    Another uninteresting small sensor camera. The future is in APS-C chips in compact size bodies. I had a Q and my X10 mopped the floor with it, including with the 8.5mm prime. Vute as a button, but rather useless camera.

    What about the Evangelion color scheme?

  • tamrong

    change sensor size from 1/2.3 to 1/1.7

    crop factor will change from 5.62x to 4.55x

    the kit lens 02 5-15 mm will becomes 23mm – 68mm

    nice range

  • Mr.Tritium

    Why didn’t they do this from the start?
    Did they reduce the sensor size of the Q/Q10 on purpose in order to have a cheap way to improve the line?

    My big issue with these small sensor cameras is not the image quality, but the massive DOF you get. Even my OMD’s sensor is a bit small to get any sort of subject isolation. My XE-1 kills it on DOF, and the XE-1 has less DOF control than a full frame.

    SO yes, in my view the smaller sensor is a compromise, there is no need to go with such a small sensor, and while it may perform well unless you have a f/0.3 aperature you can almost guarantee the entire scene will always be in focus.

    ok ok, that is a slight exaggeration, but im sure you get my point. Why not use a lager sensor so we can have some DOF manipulation?

      Between Sony, Fuji, Samsung, Panasonic, and Olympus, that’s a crowded market that I wouldn’t want to compete in.

      Go for a one-inch sensor and you’re competing with Nikon, plus the lenses are substantially bigger. This lets them do something genuinely different and fun.

      So that’s why.
