Developed as the top-of-the-line model of the PENTAX Q series, this new model is equipped with an image sensor much larger than those of its sister Q-series models for upgraded image quality, while retaining the super-compact, ultra-lightweight body that comfortably fits in the photographer’s palm.

Launched as the flagship model of the popular PENTAX Q series , the PENTAX Q-S1 offers casual, carefree digital-SLR-quality photography to everyone. Thanks to a new 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor — the largest in the Q series — the Q-S1 delivers image quality that has been much improved from its sister models.


It also offers a host of the advanced features expected in a top-of-the-series model, including high-sensitivity shooting at a top sensitivity of ISO 12800; improved shake-reduction performance; reduced operation time lag at start-up and between exposures; and effortless, user-friendly operation.


In addition, it features an array of creative tools such as Bokeh Control and Smart Effect, which assist the photographer in easily creating more personalized images.


Pentax Q-S1 comes with Focus Peaking capability, an extremely userful feature that hilite the area in focus with high contrast outlines during Manual Focus operation through the 3.0" LCD screen. This ensure precise and ease of manual focusing.

Thanks to the incorporation of a new 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, the PENTAX Q-S1 boasts the finest image quality in the Q series. 


By coupling this image sensor with the state-of-the-art Q ENGINE high-speed imaging engine, the Q-S1 not only offers high-sensitivity shooting at an ISO 12800 and delivers beautiful images with faithful reproduction of gradation and texture, it also minimizes annoying noise effectively at all ISO sensitivity levels.


Its autofocus accuracy during low-illumination shooting has also been improved, assuring pinpoint focus on the subject even at the faintest light level of EV 0.


Because of its larger sensor, the angle of view for the Q-S1 is wider than that of its sister models, even when the same lens is mounted. For example, when the 02 Standard Zoom lens is mounted, for instance, the angle of view is 23mm to 69mm in the 35mm format (compared to 27.5mm to 83mm for the Q10).


Likewise, when the Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses is used with the Q-S1, the focal length of the mounted lens is extended by approximately 4.6 times (compared to approximately 5.5 times for the Q10).

Thanks to the incorporation of a new Q ENGINE which provides a 10% improvement in clock frequency compared to existing engines, and optimized algorithm, the Q-S1 provides a shortened start-up time lag of approximately one second. It also means much-improved response during shooting, such as a shortened time lag between exposures, making camera operation more comfortable and flawless in all types of shooting.


The Quick Dial, to which the photographer can assign as many as four favorite functions, is more versatile and functional than ever, with the addition of AF/MF switching, focus assist ON/OFF and ND filter ON/OFF to the list of assignable functions.


The left circular knob not only serve as extra hand grip, remote control receiver but also greatly enhance the overall artistic-value of the camera.


Featuring a latest gyro sensor, the Q-S1’s upgraded SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism compensates camera shake by as much as three shutter steps. As a result, the Q-S1 produces sharp, blur-free images even under conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, or capturing landscapes in the twilight.


Shoot high quality motion video with stunning full 1080p HD clarity at 30 frames per second. The Q-S1 efficiently processes the full HD video using high quality h.264 compression for superior color and detail. Explore creative video effects through the use of custom image modes, digital video filters, and interval shooting; or select from a variety of Q-mount lenses to realize your perfect artistic vision. Best of all now Q-S1 allows you to have full real-time control over Shutter speed and Exposure, typically only available in pro-grade camera.

Thanks to the improvements in the image-processing algorithm, the Q-S1 captures beautiful Full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, at 30 frames per second, in the H.264 recording format) with minimal noise, even during high-sensitivity recording at ISO 12800. A new interval HD movie recording function adds more creativity to visual expression. The user can also take advantage of advanced image-processing tools including the Smart Effect modes, an array of in-body movie editing tools, and autofocus operation during movie shooting.


The Q-S1 features a high-resolution 3.0-inch 3:2-proportion LCD monitor with approximately 460,000 dots. This monitor is treated with AR (Anti-Reflection) coating to produce sharp, bright images even under bright sunshine; effectively minimizing glare and reflections on the screen. Its wide-view design makes it possible to view the image from 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, providing the user with a clear view of the on-screen image and when facing the monitor from an angle.


The Q-S1’s unique Bokeh Control function allows the user to make the subject stand out by automatically assessing the relative distance between the in-focus subject and obtrusive objects in the field of view.  Since this function simplifies the advanced, SLR-caliber technique of intentional defocusing, even a first-time digital camera user can effortlessly capture high-quality images with beautifully defocused foregrounds and backgrounds.

The Custom Image function adds a distinctive finishing touch to an image, to more faithfully express the photographer’s creative intention or reproduce the ambience of a specific scene. The user has a choice of 11 Custom Image modes, including Bleach Bypass, which produces a dramatic, movie-like finish.


The digital filter function lets the photographer apply a variety of visual effects without requiring a computer. Of the total 17 digital filters, 11 filters including Toy Camera, Invert Color and Posterization can be applied even during the shooting of still images and movie clips, while the remaining six are applicable only during image editing.


Using the Quick-Dial positioned on the camera’s front panel, the user can quickly and effortlessly add the desired finishing touch to an image, while previewing the applied effect on the LCD monitor. From nine Smart Effect modes — including Brilliant Color for a high-saturation finish, and Cross Process for a dramatic unique-toned finish — the user can assign four favorite modes to the dial in advance.


The Q-S1 features the PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode, which automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode from an range of options including Portrait, Landscape and Macro for a given scene or subject. Since the camera optimizes all affecting parameters, such as shutter speed, aperture, white balance, saturation, contrast and sharpness, the user can concentrate on the composition and moment. The Q-S1 also provides 21 Scene modes including Night Scene Portrait, Pet and Backlight Silhouette, allowing even an entry-level digital photographer to choose the best exposure settings for a complicated scene or subject with the simple choice of an icon on the LCD monitor.


The Custom Image function adds distinctive finishing touches, faithfully expressing the photographer’s creative intent or reproducing the ambience of a specific scene. The user has a choice of 11 Custom Image modes, including: Bleach Bypass, which produces a dramatic, movie-like finish. The Digital Filter function allows the photographer apply a variety of visual effects without requiring the use of a computer. From 17 total options, 11 filters including: Toy Camera, Invert Color and Posterization can be applied even when shooting still images and movie clips.  The remaining digital filters can be applied only during image editing. The user can apply multiple filters to a single image to produce more creative visual effects. Using the Quick Dial, the user can select from the Smart Effects to quickly and effortlessly add a desired finishing touch to an image, while previewing the applied effect on the LCD monitor. From nine Smart Effect modes — including Antique for a nostalgic atmosphere and Fade Color for a chic, faded-color finish — the user can assign four favorite modes to the dial in advance

The Q-S1’s comprehensive exposure system assures all the advantages and flexibility of a digital lens-interchangeable camera system. To accommodate user preferences and varying photographic applications, it offers a choice of four different exposure modes: the all-purpose Programmed AE (P) mode, which automatically selects an optimum combination of aperture and shutter speed; the Shutter-Priority AE (Tv), Aperture-Priority AE (Av) and manual Exposure (M) modes, which allow the photographer to more faithfully express specific creative intentions on resulting images.


The Q-S1’s DRII (Dust Removal II) mechanism effectively prevents annoying dust spots from spoiling captured images, even after the user changes lenses out in the open. Like the PENTAX K-3 and 645Z digital SLR cameras, it employs a highly efficient supersonic vibration mechanism, which vibrates the image sensor at high speed to shake dust off its surface.


Compatibility with Eye-Fi wireless LAN SD memory cards


High-speed continuous shooting of up to 5 frames per second


HDR mode to composite a photo with extra-wide dynamic range from three images of varying exposures


CTE white-balance control mode to emphasize the predominant color of a particular scene, such as the sunset


Multi-exposure mode (up to nine exposures on a single image), with an auto exposure compensation function


Front and Rear Remote control receptors.


Digital level function to check the camera’s horizontal/vertical inclination
