  • 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.

  • HDMI Port

    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

    Shoot high quality motion video with stunning full 1080p HD clarity at 30 frames per second. The Q7 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.
