Underneath the stylish body there’s a 12.1MP back-illuminated CMOS image sensor that should help the 1/1.7-inch sensor a fair bit with low-light performance. Speaking of sensitivity the ISO tops out at 12800 on this miniature camera. The unit also comes with built-in image via an internal gyro sensor.
Other specs of the camera include full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel movie shooting at 30fps, bokeh control to simulate the shallow depth of field produced by high-aperture lenses, and lots of digital filter options. Around the back of the camera, users will be treated with a three-inch, 460,000-dot LCD monitor.
Lastly for the real fashionista photographers out there Ricoh Imaging will launch the Pentax Q-S1 with a color to order service letting users personalize their digital camera into 40 different combinations. We’re not joking. Interested buyers can custom order the Q-S1 with their choice of 4 standard color options, or pick and chose between an additional 36 boy and grip color such as champagne, khaki green, and charcoal black.
The extremely customizable Q-S1 will be available later this month for $399.95 body only, $499.95 kitted with the 5-15mm lens. Alternatively, the camera comes with a $699.95 price tag kitted with the 5-15mm plus a 15-45mm F2.8 lens. Hit the jump for more images.
