Pentax Introduces the Retro Bodied Small Sensor MX-1; Lots of New Q10 Colors


Sexy, isn’t it? That’s Pentax’s new MX-1 camera that looks almost like a rangefinder but not really. As far as specs go, the camera has an f1.8-f2.5 lens (4x, 28mm-112mm) in front of an 12MP BSM 1/1.7 inch sensor: which for many of us can be a let down despite the snazzy looks. Plus, it shoots RAW; so it has a bit of a saving grace with that.

Interestingly, the camera is made of brass: something that doesn’t seem to be done or really mentioned/marketed often. Plus, the back sports a 3 inch 921K dot LCD screen. It will launch for $499.99 in February; which in today’s world seems a bit high for a small sensor point and shoot.

That’s not all the news from Pentax out of CES 2013 today though. Hit the jump and taste the rainbow.




We’ll make this one quick: the Pentax Q10 comes in all the colors of the rainbow plus anything a unicorn can vomit. They’re all available for custom order, which also means that the cost will vary.
