Impressive concert images. In your hands the Q brings concerts alive. Well done.
Thanks for sharing,
barondla

Thanks, the Hollywood Bowl shots were from about 250ft away from teh stage and artist. I'm impressed the Q7 and 06 telephoto did that well. the other shots are from much closer in a smaller venue.

Q7 and 06 were always a great combo but you have brought it to a new level of clarity, color and drama.

Q7 and some graffiti

Took the Q7 out with me for a stroll around town this weekend and found this fun graffiti.

My Q7 makes the perfect shoot from the car camera, especially in the rain.

I got the Q7 primarily for concerts. I used to use the RX-100 mk II, but found it didn't always have the reach I wanted for the distance I typically sat at the Hollywood Bowl.

Here's a few of my favorites. More can be found in my Q galleryCraigbob's Album: Q are you? - PentaxForums.com
That is super impressive! You were able to squeeze every ounce of performance out of that kit, and then some.

This is really a superbly captured image.
And more amazingly so that it is done with a Q.

Thank you. In reality I only get a keeper rate of about 20% with the Q7 or Sony RX100 ii. I only wish I could bring my K-1 and good glass in to these places. I think my keeper rate would improve significantly. I was able to bring a camera in to the Stray Cats show last year, but the best lens I had to bring at the time was my Tamron 28-300 which is not the sharpest lens around. I've since added a few better lenses to my collection. There's a couple of shots from that in my album Misc. Craigbob's Album: Misc - PentaxForums.com

I've heard about the Panasonic Lumix fz 200 and fz300, and wonder if either of those would be an improvement.They certainly have better specs on paper and being a bridge camera would be easier to bring into a concert. But as money is a bit tight right now I'll have to wait to find out.
