Q-S1 + 06 Telephoto Zoom

I pushed the Q to its limit. Tracking autofocus, hi-speed burst shooting. The Q does sports.

Well I struggled to get perfectly focused shots, but they were good enough for 4 x 6 prints. The kids loved 'em, so I'm satisfied. Not having the benefit of a viewfinder and the LCD blacking out during burst, I had to more-or-less shoot from the hip. This photo, like many others, had to be cropped. You can hardly tell on a small print, though. Something I noticed from this shoot was how vibrant the reds came out of this camera, not just the JPEGs, but also in the RAW files. Almost looked like they'd already been post-processed.

Nice one adjutant, didn't think that Q could do this.

The girl in red seems to be grabbing the harness on the waist of Number 10. Some variation of touch football or touch rugby?

Yeah, it's flag football. Instead of touching or tacking, you take their flag.

Thanks for explanation, I googled flag football and the second hit was a K-12 youth league in my town, I had no idea!

Pentax Q7+02 zoom

Just the road, the sky and me.
Once certainly finds himself in a trip like this.

The Q7 was the 'selfie' cam as well as the record shot cam.
The K1 did the heavy lifting.

Snatched the Q7 from my dad to take this shot, didn't have anything wide enough on me.

With the 02 standard, you have always something wide enough with you



Several photos stitched @ 5mm

Wow! a Jetstream P8, I'm considering selling my Moulton TSR and getting this instead.

How does it ride on the road? esp on the climbs?

Some B&W autumn landscape. #1 and #2 are OOC Bold monochrome... #3 was looking good also, but PP it to get better black tone.

Nice shot, love the colours in contrast with the blacks.

Cool shots #3 is my favourite. It looks so surreal with the black conifers poking out of a leafless deciduous forest.


I've been out lately trying to get a better feel of the 03 Fish-eye and managed to get this shot of yesterday's sunset.

Original Q + 03 Fish-eye
