Pentax NC Mirrorless Camera Images Spotted; We Like the Vintage Design

April 1, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Here’s yet another leak from digital camera territory! Photographs have surfaced and they seem to give some amount of credibility to the rumors which have been popping up regarding the mirrorless camera from Pentax. These images, we guess are indeed, of the Pentax NC-1 model and the lenses that come with it.


The upcoming camera is believed to be one of the smallest mirrorless cameras ever. Based on these pictures spotted by guys at Mirrorless Rumours, the device looks like that of the digital version of the popular, tiny Pentax Auto 110. The lenses also appear to be small, but we do not have the exact vital stats.

The vintage-designed camera has got a 1/2.33-inch sensor. It comes with a 14-megapixel resolution and support for HD movie recording. It has been also learnt that two lenses will be available with the device at the launch itself, but we are yet to ascertain that. It will also include a prime 8.5mm f/1.9 option (~47mm equivalent), and a zoom 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 variant (28-80mm equivalent).

Pentax is also assumed to be working on a second mirrorless system with a larger build.

This device is said to integrate the standard APS-C sensor format common to larger DSLRs. It will enable the users to connect any K-mount lenses to the larger body.

Well, the company is to confirm whether both these devices really exist or not. Rumors speak of the NC-1 set for arrival next late month or, may be, by June. Apart from this, no launch date has been revealed as yet. Pricing information also remains unknown. Let’s wait, right?
