Choose from a family of seven specialty PENTAX lenses to use with your Q7—prime, zoom, wide-angle, fish-eye, and the new mount-shield lens for a dreamy pinhole-camera effect. A Q-mount to K-mount adapter is also available for purchase.

Upgraded 1/1.7 inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor

Now featuring an upgraded 1/1.7 inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, with 12.4 megapixels for larger, more beautiful pictures than ever. Capable of producing 12 bit DNG RAW and JPG images, the backlit CMOS sensor is a highly efficient light-gathering instrument designed specifically to produce very low noise at high levels of sensitivity.

Smart Effects Modes & Creative User Modes

Use the Q7’s 19 different smart effects, creative user modes and filters, all with multi-layering capabilities, for more expression with higher image quality than your cell phone ever dreamt of. Enhance your digital photography by applying any series of these effects to your images—Brilliant Color, Vintage Color, Warm Fade, Bold Monochrome, and Water Color are just some of the Smart Effects available, which can also be assigned to the Q7’s Quick Dial.

Customized Quick Dial

Conveniently choose from a variety of creative modes, Smart Effect options, or camera settings to assign to the Q7’s Quick Dial located on the front of the camera. Easily customize the setting or effect using the Quick Dial’s 4 positions, allowing you to concentrate on photography without having to explore the camera’s menu system.

In-body Sensor-Shift Shake Reduction (SR) Mechanism

Capture stabilized, blur and dust free images even in low lighting courtesy of the Q7’s sensor-shift Shake Reduction system with integrated DRII Dust Reduction. Body-based Shake Reduction operates independently of the Q7’s lenses, allowing the same level of stabilization regardless of lens selection.

Built-In Popup Flash

The Q7’s built-in popup flash adds the perfect amount of extra light to an image, while its high extension naturally reduces the red-eye effect common to compact cameras. The Q7’s flash is effective to 23 feet at 200 ISO, and covers a wide angle 28 degree field of view.

External Viewfinder Available for Purchase

Compose images and video either with the Q7’s LCD monitor or using a shoe-mounted viewfinder attachment available as an optional accessory for the 01 Prime Lens. The External Viewfinder O-VF1 makes an excellent accessory to the Q7, offering outstanding compositional framing, even in the brightest sunlight where viewing an LCD screen can sometimes be a challenge.

Bokeh Control

Enjoy effortless bokeh control with the Q7’s bokeh control filter. Traditionally controlled through a DSLR lens’s aperture, bokeh is the out of focus portion of the background that helps to emphasize the subject, drawing the viewer’s eyes to the most important part of the photo. The Q7 assists the experienced and casual photographer alike by offering a fine degree of extra control over image bokeh via an in-camera filter operation.

3-Inch LCD Monitor with advanced anti-reflection coating

Easily capture or review images and video using the Q7’s large 3 inch LCD monitor. The high quality LCD features HVGA resolution with 460,000 dots, as well as viewing angles up to 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, now with an advanced anti-reflection coating, perfect for use in bright sunlight.

Fast Autofocus

An upgraded auto focus algorithm and image sensor contribute to faster and more accurate auto focus performance than previous models.

Traditional DSLR Modes

Experienced photographers will enjoy the power and flexibility of traditional DSLR shooting modes such as Program, Aperture/Shutter Priority, and Metered Manual exposure control. Yet casual shooters will appreciate the highly convenient automatic modes such as the set-it-and-forget-it PENTAX Auto Picture and 21 scene modes.

HDR Capture

In-camera HDR capture mode shoots 3 images of varying exposures, blending them to bring out the details in even the darkest shadows and brightest highlights of extreme contrast shots.


A built-in micro HDMI port is perfect for outputting high resolution images and video, with sound, to modern HDTVs.

Eye-Fi Card Compatibility

With Eye-Fi wireless LAN SD memory cards, the user can automatically transmit recorded images to a smartphone, and even select favorite images and resize them before transmission.

Fast shooting at 5 FPS and shutter speeds from 1/2000 to 30 seconds

Capture all the fun, even the fastest action with the five frames per second continuous shooting mode, ideal for sporting events, parties, or any fast action situation. Shutter speeds range from 1/2000 to 30 seconds, perfect for freezing fast action or capturing long nighttime exposures. Bulb mode adds flexibility for low light photography and motion effects.

ISO Speeds up to 12800

High sensitivity shooting up to 12800 ISO range improves noise performance throughout, even in low lighting.

In-body raw development

The Q7 includes SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3 software for powerful and flexible RAW file processing. In-camera RAW image development is also supported for quick output of your enhanced jpegs.

Full 1080p h.264 HD video recording

The Q7 efficiently processes the full HD video using high quality h.264 compression for superior color and detail.
