Chipmunk test shot
Lens: 560mm APO triplet scope Camera: Q-S1 
Posted By: wildman, 10-24-2016, 03:13 AM

This was a test shot to see how well that tiny Q sensor plays with my 560mm glass.
The 560mm on the Q gives me about 60x magnification and the Q has a sensor smaller than a dime so I just wanted to see how much detail I could get out of that combination.

Full frame - not a crop at a distance of about 40 feet I think.

Amazing detail! I am playing with a recently acquired original Q but have not had much success on such extreme telephoto. You have inspired me to keep trying!

Bare in mind that for this shot I used a tripod.
