I had the first Q and the Q7, sold them and regretted it. I now have the Q-S1 and will not sell this one. The Q is just plain fun to use!!

Q-S1 w/Pentax 16/1.4 C-mount TV lens shot wide open. Lens sharpens up nicely when stopped down.

Flares and Hoods

May I ask what the forum's experience is with using/needing a hood on the 02 Standard Zoom?

The official Pentax hood seems to cost as much new as a second hand Fisheye. (You won't need to be Sherlock Holmes to work out what I'm thinking here )

Is it worth it? Do any of the non-Pentax hoods represent better value?

Unfortunately I forgot to check my settings and all of these shots were at 1000 iso.

The forum combined these into a single post, but the first set is with the 02 lens, then the 08 lens, and final set with the Pentax 16/1.4 C-mount TV lens shot at f/4.

I like the shots where I missed focus.

As Wolfiegirl says...JJC hood from ebay. Mine was cheaper, I think $12.00US sent from China, took a little time to get to me. I think it helps. I just looked and saw some for $6.00US.

Thanks to both of you for the suggestion. I've found one on Amazon.co.uk - about $15 delivered, but no waiting around.

I forgot to mention that I keep the hood on at all times. It bayonets on and helps to protect the lens from bumps. Reversed, it clicks on out of the way for storage making for a compact package.

Nice series rmcnelly. Particularly like the processing. Can you give us some pointers on how you PP'd these?

This was taken alongside the others yesterday but I didn't post here, only in flickr. Turns out that was the one out of all 3 that got an explore.



This evening was met with a stunning sunset. I think I've hit the limitations of the Industar69 28/2.8. You can still see noise in the fog/light reflections despite aggressive noise reduction in LR. This was shot around f8 I think.

Congrats on your pic that was in Explore! It has nice depth and really smooth bokeh.

For the sunset picture, I think the limit is the sensor, not the lens. Only so much dynamic range can be pulled from the RAW files. I believe you could salvage this if you don't pull the shadows/blacks up so much, or reduce the exposure and brighten the whites/highlights.

I didn't post many shots from the car show/tractor event since the highlights were completely blown out and could not be recovered. I eventually realized this while shooting and altered the exposure or shot some 3 shot HDR brackets to get around it.

Thanks!

I'd be happy too! It will help me if you point out which images you'd like more info about.
