Pentax Q

Pentax's Q was the smallest interchangeable lens camera to date at the time of its announcement in the summer of 2011. The camera is the first to use Pentax's Q mount, and it utilizes a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor (helping it keep its diminutive size). The Q supports 1080p video capture and has compatibility with a hot shoe-mounted rangefinder.
