One of the main advantages to using a DSLR camera is that you have the option of changing lenses to suit the situation, something that isn’t so common with compact cameras. The only downside is that DSLRs are often rather large and cumbersome, making them more of a pain to carry around on a day-to-day basis. Fortunately there is a way to get the best of both: introducing the Pentax Q-S1, a compact camera with interchangeable lenses.
Coming in one of 40 different colours, the Q-S1 is capable of shooting photos up to ISO 12800 in one of 21 scene modes, filming full HD video, and has built-in features that allow you to customise your photos. The built-in dust removal system is also there to prevent your photos being ruined by stray particles that managed to get inside the camera.
Compatible with Eye-Fi and SD cards, the Pentax Q-S1 will be available in early September, with prices starting from £300.
