I've had a Q since 2013, and played around with it intermittently. I upgraded to a Q-S1 recently, and fell in love with the system again.
Here are a selection of shots I've made since first getting the Q. All of these images are straight outta camera. A vastly underrated piece of imaging equipment.







Nothing is showing.

The Q has as good an ISO performance as my K-7!!
What blows me away is that it would take about 9 of these small sensors to fit into one APS-C sized sensor. That's what makes this tiny little camera so amazing.

I didn't have much time to shoot with Q.


Just started with the Q-S1 -2 lens kit. First time taking night time street shots. Very impressed. Still have a lot to learn of how to get the most from this camera. Should be fun.
The images can have a bit of noise in the shadows but it doesn't take much to clean them up and its not there all the time.

This is a rescue file that's been rattling around on my HD for some time.

Very low light shot taken at a distance of about 40 feet with the bird deep in the brush.
It's a triumph of Photoshop over reality. As a matter of fact it was darker to the naked eye than it appears here.
This is about as far as I could push that tiny sensor and still retain a modicum of detail.
RAW full frame.

Really excellent! What lens, out of interest?

EDIT: Just looked at the EXIF data.... the DA560? Really?

Hey manual_focus. Those are amazingly clean files for such high ISO. I'm sure I wouldn't / couldn't do it with my Q10.

No it's a scope that just happens to have a focal length of 560mm not a conventional telephoto.

See this post for a better idea of my gear...

Impressive PP at 2000 iso (and nice capture).
