12 megapixels | 3 screen | Compact sensor
dpreview conclusion

The Pentax Q7 does well in everyday shooting, delivering image quality that's generally as good as the best enthusiast compacts. However, it under delivers for the entry-level ILC class in terms of resolution and high ISO performance. Though we had few serious complaints about its performance, it's hard to recommend among so many excellent fixed and interchangeable lens cameras that cost about the same.

Good for

Not so good for

Enthusiasts who would give priority to low light shooting, resolution, depth of field control and lens selection over compact size.
