Essential (in my opinion) upgrade from the Q10
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I recently upgraded to the Q7 from a Q10. (The progression of the names is non-intuitive, but the earliest camera was the Pentax Q, followed by the Q10, the Q7 and most recently the Q-S1).I'm absolutely in love with the Q-series cameras. The camera is tiny (the body is about the same size as a deck of cards), but takes interchangeable lenses. With some of the lenses (such as the 01 prime or 03 fisheye) it will fit in a jacket pocket, yet it has more options than my serious Canon DSLRs. You can shoot in full auto or scene modes, or switch over to have full manual control. Despite the small size, as a large man I have no difficulty at all operating the controls. The controls are very intuitive.There are many creative options and filters - so you can produce a huge variety of results straight out of the camera - including instagram-style filters, bold monochrome - which gives very characterful results - and HDR ('high dynamic range', which helps avoid areas of the image losing detail from being too dark or light to see).Above all, the camera somehow has bags of character - and while I still take my DSLR's for photos I'm aiming to make money from, the Q7 is a bundle of fun to use, and my first choice for travel or family shots.While I've been pleased with the Q10 for the last couple of years, the Q7 is a very worthy upgrade. It has upgraded logic circuits, software, and an upgraded and enlarged sensor. Some of the benefits of this compared to the Q and Q10 are:- much faster turn on and autofocus- digital 'spirit' level, helping get landscapes straight- greatly improved image quality, particularly in low-light/high ISO (with the Q10 I found shots almost unusable above ISO 400, but with the Q7 I've got some usable images from ISO 3200).- lenses are now slightly wider, making the 5-15mm zoom almost an ultrawide at the wide end. Whether this is a good or bad thing is down to personal preference, but it's a change you need to be aware of.

Product Description

Developed as the top-of-the-line model of the PENTAX Q series, this new model is equipped with an image sensor much larger than those of its sister Q-series models for upgraded image quality, while retaining the super-compact, ultra-lightweight body that comfortably fits in the photographers palm.
It also offers a host of the advanced features expected in a top-of-the-series model, including high-sensitivity shooting at a top sensitivity of ISO 12800 (compared to ISO 6400 for the Q10); improved shake-reduction performance; reduced operation time lag at start-up and between exposures; and effortless, user-friendly operation. In addition, it features an array of creative tools such as Bokeh Control and Smart Effect, which assist the photographer in easily creating more personalized images.
The Q7s upgraded SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism compensates camera shake by as much as three shutter steps. As a result, the Q7 produces sharp, blur-free images even under conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, or capturing landscapes in the twilight.
The Q7 features a high-resolution 3.0-inch, 3:2-proportion LCD monitor with approximately 460,000 dots. The monitor has been treated with AR (Anti-Reflection) coating to offer sharp, bright images even under bright sunshine by effectively minimizing glare and reflection on the screen.
A selection of image-processing tools to create personalized images featured are: Custom Images to add distinctive finishing touches, Digital filter function to apply artistic visual effects, Smart Effect function for simple dial control of finishing touches, Effortless Bokeh control, Simple, user-friendly Auto Picture and Scene modes, Flexible exposure system and many more.
