PENTAX Q Review

However, its price tag is very hard to swallow, when for the same or less you can pick up much more capable systems; including other EVIL cameras and even dSLRs. Read more in our Full Conclusion.|
Shutterbugs have the choice of saving pictures in JPEG as well as the more professional RAW format (12 bit DNG).
