My Pentax Q Album

Here's my album of stuff taken on my lovely little Q (original model), with 01, 02 and various K-mount lenses, including a 100mm Cosina macro and a cheap 300mm mirror lens

A very nice album, showing the capabilities of our beloved Q!

A few test shots that I did today with the Q, the Q-K adapter, and a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 APO DG HSM lens:

Fascinating pinball images Hinomaru. Very original subject. The first couple machines look so old. It is terrible they took axes to the wonderful machines.
Thanks for sharing

Thank you so much for your comment, barondla . It was nostalgic to see them - growing up playing pinball at youth centers. Nowadays kids are on their smartphones and at arcades playing electronic games - they probably don't know or some may never have seen pinball machines. Just like cameras - they'll ask "What is Film?".

I been busy all day shooting various artwork/sculptures/paintings/etc that were selected to go in Display Magazine (apparently I been their go-to for officially paid art photographer as of last year), so while I'm using the department's Canon 6D with either the Canon 24-70/4L or the 100/2.8L for the job, I decided I'd put the remote trigger onto the Q10 and see how it does with the strobes and the 01 standard prime :









;P and a quick shot of my Q10 with the 6D

Did a couple HDRs earlier tonight, initially was just going to have the E-M5 shooting but since the Q10 was already in my front coat pocket and I had a second quick release plate figured why not try. (The octogonal quick release plate for my manfrotto seems bigger than the Q10 lol). The E-M5 had a Pentax-M 28mm f/3.5 attached (56mm equiv), and the Q10 had a 01 Standard prime attached (47mm equiv).

An HDR merge from 6 DNG Raw frames (1 second to 30 second) at ISO 100 and f/2.8 aperture using the 01 Standard Prime.



The camera's own HDR "mode" attempt, I noticed it goes fully automatic, as a result ISO 3200 was selected automatically.



An in-camera edit off of one of the raw captured frames used in the first HDR (picked the 8 second one which was middle ground for exposure)



In comparison, the HDR of the same scene (but from a little further down the bridge) off the E-M5 and Pentax-M 28/3.5



Another HDR off the Q10 from 7 DNG Raw frames from 0.5 to 30 seconds Also f/2.8 and ISO 100.



I noticed with the Q10 there's no dark-frame subtraction wait time after a longer exposure capture like I have had with other cameras (ie: if you shoot 4 seconds, you see the light blinking for 4 additional seconds doing a dark frame to subtract long exposure noise off the image, which can be a pain if you need it done in camera, since a 30 second exposure, takes 60 seconds before you can shoot another, this appears not to be the case with the Q10, and since I don't see the option in the menu, it probably doesn't do that).

From a visit to a fossil bed freshly uncovered by flooding of the Iowa River a few years back. The spotted rock is fossilized coral from between 370-400 million years ago.

Over the last day and a half.

In the studio with 3x Alien Bees strobes (radio triggered from the Q10 and the 01 Standard Prime).



A test with a Hoya R72 infrared filter.



And earlier tonight... when did Pepsi start blessing their sodas?
