Ricoh releases Pentax Q-S1 digital camera

The Japanese maker of digital cameras Ricoh has released its new Pentax Q-S1 mirrorless digital camera. The newcomer arrives with a compact chassis that directly takes it to the compact digital camera category and a number of improvements and new features but most of them are not something to celebrate.

In fact the new Q-S1 model strongly resembles the already released Pentax Q7 model. The new Pentax camera comes with a 12 MP 1/1.7-inch BSI CMOS back-illuminated sensor for high-quality, vibrant images and there’s also high sensitivity that reaches ISO 12800 and an integrated and reliable shake-reduction system that depends on a state-of-the-art gyro sensor. The camera also comes with a number of creative tools, such as bokeh control and Smart Effect to add the filters that you need.

The Pentax Q-S1 excels in the body colors, however. The new camera will be available in 4 standard color combinations and 36 additional body and grip colors such as champagne, khaki green, charcoal black and others. The lens color offers a total of five different options for a more desirable and eye-catching imaging system.

The new camera will be available at Pentax retailers this month where it will sell for a suggested retail price of USD 499.95.
