I'm doing the single challenge this month, so I suspect that a few shots with the Q will land here :-)

A WR Q would be nice. (I'd have bought a waterproof Optio, but they don't shoot RAW, so I haven't.)

With my LOMOish 4mm CS lens.


With 01 prime.


And with FA31.

Saw these bad boys sitting out in the break room at work and since I always have my Q with me I thought I'd have a little fun with them. Everything was shot at fairly high ISOs so there is definitely a noticeable amount of grain/noise but I think it kind of gives it a little bit of a grungy roccoco sort of a vibe. Feedback is appreciated.

By the way, all the the other shots on this page are fantastic! Enoeske's street shots are great, especially that last one. The construction vehicle in the snow by drougge is very cool. Sledger's shot of the cat is super detailed and that close-up of that eye by Zorglub is awesome. There might not be a ton of us but Q owners are most definitely a creative bunch!

Nice shots!

I absolutely love the second one.

Very nice shots LeRolls, but what the heck are these things, decorative balls?

Ice structure by A.Sundell
Sublimely beautiful. Focus stacking? What kind of magnification? Time to start a MaQro Qlub, I think.

Yessir! Useless tchotchke kind of stuff that you might see in a furniture store. Strictly for decorative purposes but I thought they were kind of interesting to look at.

No stacking and I think this one was F5.6, can't see any difference with the F8 one I took. It's not even 1:1 as I wanted to see more of the structure instead of just rectangles of ice, the Q got such a tiny sensor so 1:1 is an extremely small area.

All the more impressive that you didn't stack this -- it's perfectly focused across the frame, a major challenge at this level of magnification.

Not to mention that I had a weird wobble when focusing and it was impossible to frame things steadily. Just after this pic I realized that my adapter almost had fallen apart making the mount extremely loose. Focusing with 4x on a tripod isn't that hard with the Q.

Took this shot with the 01 as I was driving home with my car window down going about 80mph. Feedback is appreciated.
