Pentax Q, The World's Smallest, Lightest Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera

Pentax Q

The Pentax Q is small enough to fit on your keychain, but features interchangeable lenses and a 12.4 megapixel sensor. The retro-styled shooter also offers 1080p HD movie recording and a built-in flash.

If you’re looking to take photos in stealth mode or simply want an easy to carry camera that’s more versatile than a point-and-shoot, this camera was designed for you.
