The Pentax Q10 now sells as watch too…no joke!

The Pentax Q10 never has been a hotseller in Europe or North America but it’s quite popular in Japan. So popular that they even made a Q10….watch!!! RiceHigh spotted that image showing the new gadget (Click on it to see a large version).

I may add this to my collection of other accessories like the OMD keychain and the PEN keychain :)

    Well I live in Japan (in Chiba, just out of Tokyo which I travel to a lot) and I see mirror less cameras everywhere, but i’ve never seen a single person with the Q, i’ve seen it in a few stores but only the biggest ones, usually in Tokyo, generally it’s a flop over here too, but there’s probably enough people (people people everywhere) that buy it as a cute toy and never take it out to keep it going, that’s Japan for you.

    Just thought i’d mention that it’s not very popular here either. And btw, I live in a small town area, I can walk 5 mins and buy the RX1, the Fuji Xe-1, and any other camera you can think of, I love that about here, news on these sites is about 4 weeks old compared to the local dealers here!

      I see from the BCNranking stats that Pentax sold the !10 quite well. And it is under the 10 most sold mirrorless cameras….

        I’m in no position to doubt the figures, just thought i’d offer my real world opinion of it here, never seen it around, and it’s usually pushed to the back of any camera store if it’s there at all.

        Anyway, i’d buy the watch before i’d buy the actual camera.

    I agree with Will. I live in Japan too and share the same opinion. A lot of times tne news about Japan are so stereotyped/full of prejudice

  • Ellen Mansour

    and the watch is a GIFT if you buy a Pentax Q10…

  • james

    wow, now that watch i might actually want to buy.

  • coel

    Like Ellen said, the watch is a freebie when you buy the camera.

    Accordin to pentax the Q is selling now. They ate alteady pfficially qorking in the Q10 successor. The main issue was price. Not only the Q10 gas shown in the topmof bcn but the Q also and in the dc market watch survey the original Pentax Q whote camemout as te #1 most desire camera in the survey for 2012.

    So my guess is, its not a flop and selling in Japan somehwere. Also more and more people are starting to how up with one at some forums, cuting the original price issue and to a leaser extent the small sensor = useless misconception.
