The Pentax Q10 in every colour of the rainbow

I will admit that my artistic side was tickled pink when I first saw the news on that Pentax would be re-releasing the Q10 mirrorless camera in 100 different customisable colour combinations.

To choose your colours, all you have to do is head over to the official Pentax website, click on the two colours you desire using a simple flash tool on the site, and place your order.

This option may be of little interest to professionals, most of whom wouldn’t be caught dead with a pink and tangerine camera in hand, but it is an innovative and, dare I say, crafty way of pulling amateur photographers in the mirrorless direction.

Of course, it would be useless to trumpet the Pentax Q10 solely for its wide range of colour choice. It is a also a quality camera, with a small and light body, and intuitive menu that any beginner would appreciate. While it produces better pictures than most high-end compact cameras, image quality does not quite live up to that of other mirrorless models produced by companies such as Sony, Olympus and Fujifilm due to the small sensor – a fact which Pentax thankfully recognised and reflected in the Q10’s low price.

There are also a number of new lenses for the Pentax Q series. However, with the exception of the 8.5mm and the standard zoom, these new lenses tend to have very slow apertures, meaning low-light shots are out of the question.
