That's what makes it fun, learning all the things this camera can do!

I like to use an appropriate "filter," contrast one down from max, fine sharpness +1, NR low, shadow and highlight compensation OFF. Try it.

Thanks ndjedinak, have put these settings in, already looking good, but will try them out over the weekend.

I liken "bold monochrome" to cross processing. It's great used as a seasoning, but it shouldn't be your regular meal.


Perhaps that's why I always dissuade Q users from that bold monochrome setting--unlike many digital cameras, the Q can generate a full range of B&W tones... You don't need the gimmick of adding punch by souping too long


As always, have fun. The Q is really good at that.


Mind you, I do still love 'soup', just maybe I won't have it every day.

BTW, love your Cross Processed Random images... you're maybe onto something.

Like you say ndj, have fun.

Regards

ali

A couple of pics taking with some kind of reduced contrast bright B&W setting. The male (grey) cockatiel keeps flirting with the camera as with my old Canon A2000IS, he doesn't like the K-5 as much though.

Free-lensing a defect (broken shutter) Smena 40mm F4. I think that I'll try to build an adapter or mod the lens for the Q. Dunno how though but the focal flange distance is reasonable.

Awesome bird. I like the shot of the angry bird.If I didn't have a bird dog at home, I'd get a bird.. Ha!

The shot of the flowers reminds me of TMax 120... Extended middle tones. Really great. Now you can adjust to taste with "filters" (I use yellow, orange, red, and green with occasional use of blue) and contrast slider.

I think the Q does great B&W. Mind the ISO for extended DR if possible.

I've got no Q shots from today, I've been playing with a Ricoh.

I used Yellow filter for the shots.
The Ricoh cams looks great!

Our shots

Hi!

I're recently bought the tiny Q for my wife and we are really enjoying it! Not only is it a tiny, fun and cute camera to carry everywhere and record good memories, but it also forces you to be creative and to experiment

I also find it nice that we all meet here to share our shots and experience
Here are 3 samples and the link to our Q gallery. The gallery is in italian but it should not be that hard to interpret... we mostly use b/w, color extraction, bold colors or vintage colors.


(The girl with the balloon)



(Raspberry red)



(World in a ballon)


Angolo Q - Gallerie - Tommaso Bientinesi - www.tommasobientinesi.it
(The gallery is a subsection of my website that you can visit if you have nothing to do in your spare time , the other galleries are taken with the K20).

Saluti!
